Thankful for Mondays….WHAT!!! (umm and Tuesdays!)

Seriously, who says that!!! Did I really just say that I am thankful for Mondays…I did!!!! We have a full and busy home.  There are always people coming and going. Places to be, things to do, activities to attend, children to taxi, and so on and so on. Mondays come and as soon as everyone is off to work and school, I am sitting on the couch with my hot tea, and the tv on.  It is quiet, calm and peaceful.  It is the day of the week that I tend to be the most productive.  I always seem to be able to accomplish way more on Monday than any other day of the week.  I am well rested from the weekend (usually) and have a list of things I want to accomplish.  Somedays, I tend to over extend myself.

Ummmm…it’s Tuesday.  This never posted yesterday because I never finished it!!!!  UGH!!! Sometimes life happens.  Blogging daily is tough stuff and I am sure that you are all sick of my posts.  But I am enjoying every part of it.

So today you get a double!!!  Yay!  And oh today I am so thankful for doctors and dancing!! Today I was diagnosed with bronchitis.  I have seriously been sick with the annoying cough for almost 6 weeks.  Today I had to honor of hitting the urgent care after taking Susan to school, dropping the dog at the groomers,  and middle schoolers to the bus. I checked in at 8:55am.  I didn’t see the doctor until almost 10…(insert eye roll).  Finally a diagnosis, followed by an in office breathing treatment, a steroid shot, an antibiotic prescription and a steroid prescription for the next for days.  I literally raced home to change into nicer clothes, and put make up on so I could be at Susan’s last Thanksgiving Feast in elementary school. We are hitting the end of an era. Matt and I made it there with 10 minutes to spare!  Susan was elated to see us.  Makes our hearts happy.  On a side note, breathing treatments make me shakey and steroids give me crazy energy.  I had a great last night of classes for this semester teaching my fabulous kids!  So I am thankful for that medicine kicking in and giving me energy for a fun night of teaching.  Now I am thankful for the days of rest coming so that I can get better.

Okay, so I will stop rambling now, as my fingers are flying over the keyboard and my mind is racing a million miles a minute.  I will likely never fall asleep tonight, but if not, I hope to gets lots of things done if I am up all night.  Maybe I will blog for the whole week and be ahead of everything!  Hahaha!  Or maybe I should clean house and keep working on the never-ending piles of laundry that exist in a family of 7! OOHHHH or online Christmas shopping so I can start knocking out gifts for all the nieces and nephews!!!

Laurel spent 8 months caring for her first husband after being diagnosed with cancer in 2010. He passed away at 33, leaving behind a daughter of 7 and 5 year old twin boys. After sowing millions of tears, Laurel sought out God daily and began to plan for a life of being a single mother, but ready to raise their children in faith, hope and love. God gave her more than she could have ever imagined when she brought Matt into her life, along with his 2 children. He was recently divorced and the providence of God had been leading up to this life for more than 20 years! Now Laurel is reaping joy with Matt and their 5 beautiful children. Thanks be to God for all the beauty created from the ashes of death and divorce.
