Fabulous Friday

What a Wonderful, Fabulous Friday it is! Or will be.

It has been a crazy couple of weeks here. Between me going to the doctors, having to change my diet, things happening at the kid’s school, our A/C breaking and all of the little things in between, today has to be a good day!

At this very moment we have an A/C guy here assessing and hopefully going to fix our issue with the A/C. It wasn’t bad when the weather was cooling off but it’s back to hot and humid Texas weather and we are all sweating through the night. It will be nice to have it fixed!

Levi is heading back to therapy. We took the summer off and haven’t been back since school started. But issues at school have emotions running high for everyone here. Being bullied has been an issue for both of my kids since we moved here. There were bullies back home but we knew everyone (literally everyone) and were able to put a stop to things quickly. It seems to just get handled differently here. We are happy to be getting back to therapy. Get some ideas on how to handle the bullies and school officials and move forward.

We are all finally feeling better! After being on antibiotics for a week, my sinuses are feeling so much better. Not good enough to head back to yoga for an hour of downward facing dog but good enough to breathe through my nose while I sleep. I will take it! The kids are feeling better and even Travis could breath better today!

We’ve got kids coming over after school. Some we are watching and a then we have a little girl coming over just for fun. It will be nice for the kids to all play together and get all their crazies out!

I have gotten to video call with my niece and nephew for their birthdays this week! One was today and one was Wednesday! I love seeing their faces even if they don’t really love seeing mine. haha

It feels like I haven’t been accomplishing much at all lately. I have been feeling down in the dumps and also sick. But sitting here thinking about all I have actually accomplished lately, my list is quite long. Today I have already done 2 loads of laundry, made bee food, cleaned the cat box, took out the trash, cleaned the loft, made beds, done the dishes, cleaned the pool skimmers and did the chemicals, balanced the bank book and I am writing my blog. And it’s barely 9:30. The little things add up!

No matter what you are doing today, there is something fabulous in it!

Sickness Doesn’t Stop Us On Halloween!

It was a weekend of relaxation and sickness in my house.

The kids and I are all sick and we tried to move as little as possible over the weekend. Of course, that didn’t help and we are all still sick. Except Delylah, who I took to the doctors and is on antibiotics. Levi was complaining of ear pain this morning so it may be his turn to see the doctor next. I seem to put off the doctor as long as I can.

I started writing this yesterday and was haulted by a phone call. Levi’s ear pain was worse and I picked him up from school. An ear infection. The kid is never sick and now has Sinusitis and an Ear infection. Antibiotics for him and for me as well. We were up all night because his ears hurt so bad. I am waiting on him to wake up, see how feels and debate taking him back to the doctor. I can only hope that the ear drum finally ruptured and he won’t have any more pain or that the oil of oregano and hot compress with ibuprofen and antibiotic combination actually kicked in.

Today is Halloween!

I want to be excited! I can breathe through my nose which means my plans of sewing my mouth shut like a psychos victim while I give out candy might work out. Only it’s supposed to rain. I’m talking 90% chance of rain and that means it will surely rain. Not only that but all 3 of us are on antibiotics and fighting off sickness. We probably don’t need to be walking about in the rain for candy that I have bags of. Where is the fun in that though? So, I will see how the day plays out and what will happen.

We all like dressing up! We usually dress up together but last year Levi was over that and we decided to go our separate ways. Check out our costumes over the years.

Above is 2010 – 2013. 2010 Delylah was an Elephant and Levi was Woody. 2011 we had Mario and Minnie Mouse. 2013 we were Peter Pan, Tinkerbell and Captain Hook.

2014 and 2015. Skeletons and witches. And the Boxtrolls with Winnie.

2015 and 2016. A zombie family and a scarecrow, Ace Venture and a Spider Queen.

This year we have a Catwoman, Jason from Friday the 13th and a psychos victim. Halloween is always a fun time. Even when you’re sick!

Happy Halloween My Friends

Finding The Good In The Shit

A lot of things have been happening that make it hard to find the good. This morning I was thinking of making a post about not being able to catch a break and then it dawned on me that today is Thursday. Thankful Thursday. So damn it, I will find things that I am thankful for from all the crap that has been going wrong.

We have 2 A/C units. One isn’t working right at the moment. It keeps freezing up and running constantly. While this is a pain in the butt, a cold front is moving in and it’s breaking at a perfect time! Not only that, but I pay monthly for a home appliance warranty company so it won’t cost much to have someone come look at it. There is a bright side. I am thankful it’s cold and it broke now instead of in the summer.

Delylah has been sick since October 16th. Fevers, head and chest congestion and constant nasal drainage. She was getting better and then woke up in the middle of the night with a fever. Today we will head to the docs, which I avoid doing because they like to pump her with anti biotics that she refuses to take and her body has become immune to most. But with her being home I have a buddy to go shopping with. Sick or not. I have to go get stuff and now we get to do it together!

I haven’t been to yoga in 2 weeks. I was thinking I would get to go today but with Delylah being sick and my stomach all screwed up, it’s just not going to happen. This sounds like a downer but there is good in this. For one, that’s why I have a membership. I can go when I want. It’s always there. For two, if I start to feel better I will do some yoga at home. Just going to yoga has taught me I don’t really need the studio to pursue my yoga journey and also taught me how to flow. So if I can, I will. I have the ability and the knowledge and I am thankful for that.

Halloween is coming! My favorite holiday and the yard is all ready except the fog machine and dry ice. The last final touches. Travis won’t be here that day so before he left he did some last-minute touches I needed (that I probably would’ve broke if I did myself) and helped complete my awesome yard! Having him home for so long was amazing! Especially to complete some honey do’s his last day when I was unable to do much getting ready for my colonoscopy. I am thankful to have such a good man!

As much as I am thankful for him, I am thankful for the friends I have made. He had to go to work the day I needed my colonoscopy done and I needed a ride for me and someone to pick Levi up from swim. My neighbor was more than willing to take me to my appt, feed me after and then feed my kids dinner for me. Another friend brought Levi home from swim even though her daughter wasn’t even at swim that day. Those are the kinds of people I want in my life. The Selfless kind. I am thankful out of all the people I have met here, I have found a few I can call my people!

So, while things around me might be going to shit, I can still find the good in it. I guess my positivity is coming back. For a bit there I thought maybe I was gonna lose my shit and turn into the negative lady no one wants to talk to. Keep looking for the good in the bull shit. It’s there. You can even use bull shit for fertilizer. There’s good in everything!
