I'm a freakin' ray of sunshine!

Good morning sunshine!

What a hectic busy time it has been. My son ended up having to go to the emergency room on Saturday for difficulty breathing. After 2 breathing treatments, oral steriods (which he threw up on me), a shot, and x-ray, we were able to take him home. He is doing much better as I write this.

This on top of the worry and stress of my husband's neck surgery which went as planned yesterday. All looks well! Hopefully he will be able to go home today.

And I got a sty in my eye on Friday which is almost like an insult when you consider everything else going on in my life. So I can't even look cute while I am stressed since I have to wear my glasses! WTH?! Now that is just not fair!!

Which brings me to a memory of a girl sitting on the beach saying "Why me? Why me?" and having some random beach bum come up and say "Why not?"
Remember Yooj?

Why not indeed!

But today looks rosy and my spirits are intact as is my sanity.

Thank goodness my father-in-law is here to help. We did anticipate he would keep my son from jumping on my husband after his surgery, but we did not plan for my son needing medical care himself. If my father-in-law wasn't here, I would be spread even thinner than I am now. Such a tremendous relief. I ca't even begin to tell you!!

See, there is a silver lining to everything! I can't help being a freakin' ray of sunshine! Help! Pollyanna syndrome!!

And yes, Kim...there is a silver lining! (ala Yes, Virginia...there is a Santa....)

Oh how I wish that I could be more like you. You take things in stride and instead of feeling sorry for yourself you look for the lesson that you can learn from the experience. You are remarkable to me.
