Mommies don't get sick days & and other various reasons this day is not my favorite...

Well, I started this post in my mind feeling bad for myself. I woke up this morning to some sort of stomach bug and haven't gotten to feeling better. I left the title to this post because, frankly, it cracked me up, but what this truly has made me realize is that I am very blessed & grateful on this cold day.  It was my morning to sleep in, so Trace bundled up the littles in their coats and jammies and took them out to get milk & donuts. What a great way to wake up!  I am also feeling fortunate that he was able to tweak his work schedule today so that he can go in around nap time~ I do get a sick day! I am also kind of glad to be stuck inside because it's so cold out there! Cold as it may be, however, we have been keeping an eye on our new home in Illinois, and it is really cold there! They cancelled church last night due to the cold~ Yikes!

I had another post ready for today about my new diet and exercise plan (please note the sarcasm...), complete with a picture of my scale. But, another reason to be grateful, I have always thought that there is no better way to kick off a diet than with a few days of a stomach illness, right? You cannot tell me I'm the only one who has dreamed of the mild flu to get the scale started in the right direction...

Plus, I woke up to two sales in my shop! This day is stacking up to be yet another one of God's great gifts to me! Happy Thursday!

  2. So sorry you're not feeling well. Hope you got the rest you needed and, umm, the headstart on the weight loss!!


I love to hear what you have to say~ Thanks for leaving your mark!
