You know how sometimes in life things just fall into place really well? Finally jobs seem to be working out, bills are being paid, everyone’s happy and healthy?
Well… this is NOT one of those times.
Okay, okay… our jobs are actually really good and even though we got slammed hardcore with crazy taxes this year, we’re still managing to pay the bills. But as far as the happy, healthy people part goes… things couldn’t be farther from the truth.
I can handle kids being sick for a few days… maybe even a week, but when it carries into day 14 and 15… well then I start to lose my ever-lovin’ mind. I can only recall my kiddos being THIS sick once before. Normally they are pretty healthy and usually bounce back quickly from those regular “school yard” colds and sniffles, but JEESH, we’ve been working hard for the past two weeks just trying to get over these nasty sicknesses that have plagued our house! (and yes, we’ve been to the Dr.)
We’ve officially had pink eye, croup AND the flu.
Seriously!?… This Mom needs a B.R.E.A.K!
(Is anyone else having to deal with this garbage at their house!?)
What? You think I’m just coming here to post about all of this for sympathy comments and to get a little pat on the back from my friends for attempting the start of an office makeover in our house, all while cleaning up puke, waking up at 3am to hacking children and frantically screaming at little people throughout the day… “DON’T TOUCH YOUR EYES!”
Well, then you’re right.
Have I ever mentioned how much Cason and I LOVE being parents? Don’t worry, we still do.
I just felt the need to pop in this Sunday afternoon, before a rigorous house disinfecting and bed sheet cleaning session to tell all of you… This is my REAL life. ha!
We frequently receive comments, after our completed projects, from readers that will state things such as:
“Wow, you guys always have such a clean house”
“It must be nice to just design and DIY all day”
HAHA! I’m sure that most of you realize this is NOT what we’re ALL about, but for those of you who may seem to have been lead astray?… This ones for you.
Here’s to healthier kids and (even the smallest) completed projects this week.
PS. In happier news, I’m STILL working on a post about the office, like I mentioned on our Facebook page… so you can look forward to that!
