licking my wounds

Today is just a day I'd rather just fast forward. All plans had to be cancelled due to William being sick and now here I sit. It's hard to get beyond shear disappointment. Hard to choose a better attitude. And it's not like I had the Academy awards or something to attend today. It's just the fact of having fun plans.

Our church has a "Coffee at my house" that if you sign up, you can choose to be a host or guest. I signed up to be a guest and then it's a surprise who else will be there at the host home. I did find out that Aunt Dot was going to be at the same house, so we planned to ride together. I went last year and had so much fun getting to know ladies in our church better.

And poor William. I do feel sympathy for him. Little 5 year old has had an ear infection in both ears since the end of December. I took him in yesterday because he still has pain in his one ear. The one ear is healed, but the other ear is infected in the middle ear and outer. Along with a hole in the ear drum. He also has a bonus fever~just for fun I suppose. So this will be the 3rd round of antibiotics for him. This ear is costing us an arm and a leg. And I know I should be thankful for health insurance...I am. I should be thankful that he's not down with something more severe.....I am. But today is just a day stuck inside playing nurse when I wanted to play something else.

I know insert pretend crying baby noises here.

Sorry, Heather...that's a bummer. Hope your day brings you little surprises and blessings you woudn't have noticed if you hadn't been at home today.

Love you.

Feel free to pout just a little. A mom has simple joys sometimes and a coffee out with some ladies is a treat we don't take lightly.

Praise will get you out of the dumps when you're ready.

I completely understand girl....my girls trip to Chicago this weekend is in limbo due to sick kiddos too. Just crossing my fingers and trying to remember that things could be worse. I have so much to be thankful for.

Take Care!
