Silver Lining Sick Days

All I'm saying is, you know your life has long-since taken a turn for the...unexpected... when in the span of two hours you discuss "zany" new medications with your child's hematologist, contend with significant adoption issues, field a call from a friend saying she's been in hiding for 2 days after beating up another girl, and visit the county jail.

This is the mostly-good kind of crazy, right?

Right???!

Cause this week it feels just crazy. The plain kind.

The days have lost their ever-loving minds starting right around 3pm. The evenings have been long, intense, and exhausting.


The good news is, Silas has been sick. Hear me out.

While it's not good that he suffered a high fever, "watering" eyes, mysterious "mouf" ailments, and a muscle twitch in his right heel ("my foot is pumping up! it's not flat! wahhh!"), it IS stinking good to have a reason to lounge all morning in our "pojammies" without a care in the world. (Pumping up feet aside.)

We've shared a grapefruit (dude can't get enough), read Harold, watched Madeline, played Bingo and just today tried to light the Christmas tree, only to find that ALL of the lights are dead, save one 50-light strand. (If you know Silas at all, you can imagine how devastating this was/still is.)


He's on the mend now, working hard at saying "THink" instead of "sink" and telling me things like, "When I grow bigger'n you, I'll be your boss. Yes I will."

Tomorrow? He goes to school.

Oh, he's going to school.

Bonus happy: My canvas came! Lordy, I love it. They sent a coupon for $50 off my next purchase. Don't mind if I do!

We deliberated long and hard over which photo would be honored and I couldn't be happier with the winner. It feels important to point out that this shot was a big, fat mistake. Spot metering gone awry. SCORE!

If you haven't ordered a canvas yet, DO IT. Right now Canvas People is offering 60% off with free shipping. DOUBLE SCORE!

So, how has your week been so far? Is our crazy contagious?
