Oh hi! Me again... I feel like I've been a bit MIA... I've been feeling a bit bogged down with life this last week (I know we've all been there). One of those weeks where you can't get out of your own way, you'd loose your head if it wasn't attached, and no matter how much you get done your always behind kind of weeks.. The good news is this darn week is just about behind us.
I sarcastically asked another mom the other day if it was a full moon (based on all the whacky events of the week) and sure enough she confirmed there was in fact a full moon earlier in the week.. go figure... I won't bore you with all the details of the week (I'll just give you a quick glimpse so you know I would have much rather been on here blogging and chatting with you)... it all really kicked off last Friday when my little guy Calvin had a seizure (while we were driving on the highway).. I had really hoped he was on his way to outgrowing these, having made it since August without one. I'm beyond grateful that is the grand scheme is ok and we're so blessed, just breaks my heart to watch it happen. I'm usually pretty laid back, but after he has a seizure I get stressed and it definitely weighs on me... added to the mix of lots of work, business projects that need to happen, snow storms, a flooded basement, dirty house, taxes that need to be done asap.. (you get the picture and I know you're probably saying "been there"), I found myself loosing my marbles.. I really couldn't get out of my own way, getting frustrated with my kids, bickering with my husband...yikes!
But here's the thing... at the end of the day, it's no big deal.. this was one week out of so many ... this certainly wasn't my week, but it wasn't the first lousy week, and I'm sure they'll be plenty more. And while seizures stink (really really stink) I'm still hopeful our little guy will outgrow them, and all things considered, our family is very lucky. We've had a much better weekend, and looking forward to a fresh start next week!
