Mrs. Nurse Boy here.
Sigh. It is Monday. We have been pretty busy and I have had a bad case of writer's block. I have had a few things weighing a little heavy on my heart the last few weeks. Thankfully, nothing serious. Just life. So, in honor of Monday and keeping things light....
Have you ever had one of THOSE weeks? Well, I did!
* We ran out of bar soap in the shower. (Seriously, it feels like I am at the store every other day. How can I repeatedly forget the bar soap until it is nothing but a sliver of yuck?)
* My built in microwave died. In the middle of one of my cooking marathons.
* Extra bills and a determination to remain debt free means I can't run to the store to buy a new one right away.
* I never realized how much I used that thing until it became an over sized timer for my kitchen.
* I thought my oldest child had made a really poor choice this week.
* Of course, I was told about my son's poor choice by another mom when he was sound asleep for the night.
* Am I the only one who can't sleep when that happens? By the sound of Nurse Boy's snoring all night long, I am guessing the answer is, "Yes."
* I am getting a cold. Plus, I can't seem to sneak a nap to save my life.
* Bruiser has been congested for about 3 weeks. We finally took him to the doctor for them to tell us he has a cold. Silly me, I was looking for new information.
* Nurse Boy is finally feeling my pain and wants to figure out how to purchase a microwave before Superbowl Sunday.
* The men in my life are VERY excited about the Superbowl.
* In case you live in a cave, the Colts are playing in the Superbowl.
* Since we are originally from Indianapolis, Indiana, we apparently bleed blue and white and must teach all of our offspring to trash talk anyone who is not a Colts fan.
* I say "apparently", because on Superbowl Sunday I will be celebrating the END of football season! (Just like I do every year.)
* Oh, and that sleepless night over my son's poor choice? It was a big, fat waste of time. (Nurse Boy was right after all!) Turns out, after MUCH investigation, my son had actually made several smart and intelligent choices during a difficult situation.
* So, instead of beating myself up as a parent, I will thank God that Dimples had a sound mind to make smart, mature decisions.
* Being a parent is by far the hardest thing I have ever done or ever will do!
* Being a parent is also the most rewarding thing I have ever done or ever will do!
Have a fabulous Monday... if that is even possible on a Monday ;0)
