inspiration, gratitude & surprises

26 Sep


I have been a tad absent on the blog recently. I had big plans for the content I wanted to put up (seriously, I had the calendar all planned out) but instead daily life kept getting in the way and I had a hard time sitting down at my computer for a solid block of time. Luckily, I had a bunch of fabulous project 30 interviews lined up- did you read them? They were all fabulous! (Chelsea, Katie, Tobi & Amy Nicole).

The past few days have been full…we had friends staying with us, my momma’s birthday & Rosh Hashanah. In addition I have been under the weather the last two days. It’s just your run of the mill sore throat, headache & body aches but it’s knocked me on my ass. I just want to sleep all day. Sadly, Frank thinks sleeping all day is stupid. He’d much rather torture me with his tennis ball. Seriously, what do people do when they are sick and have small kids at home??? If a puppy is driving me nuts I can’t imagine a baby.

I’m planning on taking it pretty easy this weekend. The only thing I have on the books is a date with my little sister Briana. We are going to Aquarium Of The Pacific! I’m not sure who is more excited about this outing!

What inspired me this week?

    Hope you are feeling better and Happy New Year to you. . I love that photograph. Jen said she had an amazing time with you. One of these days. By the way I am getting ready to have my GB out but also exploratory surgery too so my friend who is a surgeon said “I will be getting filleted”. Doesn’t that sound like fun.

      No…that doesn’t sound like fun:( Ugh surgery is the worst! I’m so sorry you have to go through all that. When is the surgery? I need to remember to send you positive and healing thoughts that day!!

    “my experience with the DMV” … will be tuning in – ha! I’ve been out of CA for a year now and I’m still getting mail from the CA DMV. Really?? Really?

    Glad you’re feeling better! This short, sweet post helped me realize there’s no need or worry about keepin’ up with the Jones when it comes to blogging:

      You’re still getting mail from the CA DMV??! HA. Clearly, they don’t want to let you go either! Loved that post you shared with me. I’ve never read Sugar & Cloth before…I love finding new blogs- thanks love!
