Hooray for Friday! This week has been a crazy one, so I am super happy that it's just about the weekend, especially since we have an exciting week ahead. But, before we get there, here are five ways I feel blessed this week:
1. The reason I have been MIA in the blogosphere this week: we moved. Moving is never fun. Throw in a toddler, and you get extra-crazy.
2. Anyone remember this show? Well, they have the whole series on DVD. Turns out our little one loves it...which gives us an excuse to relive our childhood Saturday mornings.
3. Major high five for my brother who was promoted to Sargeant yesterday! I'm a super proud big sis!
4. This was at the bottom of the page in my "Parents" magazine (Judy on Duty section). It made me really happy to see someone in a non-allergy related publication to say this. As an allergy mom, I can understand that food-related regulations can be annoying to non-allergic families. But...I cannot understand why so many people have to communicate their annoyance with eye-rolling, nastiness, and without compassion. We just want to keep our kids alive. Thanks to "Parents" for pointing this out!
5. You never know what you'll come across while moving and re-organizing. Here, we have a poem from my obviously melodramatic 9 year old self that my mom must have held onto as a laugh. I don't remember why on earth I was so upset about our baseball stadium closing (in favor of a brand new one). I do find two things about this extra-funny. One: I wasn't really an exceptionally big baseball fan and rarely went to baseball games. We watched them on tv...not in the stadium. Two: My teacher's comment, "The closing of this stadium will cause you much pain, won't it?"
