Happies and Crappies of the Week

After joining the inaugural "Happies and Crappies" link up with Scissors and a Whisk, I found my Fridays too chaotic to join in for the last few weeks, so I'm happy to be back in the fold!

Scissors and a Whisk: Happies and Crappies Link Up

This week's Crappies:

  • I've been so sick. I sound like a snotty, sloppy, slimy Jabba the Hut. I look like him, too.

  • No sick days off for moms. Kids still have to get to school, families still need to eat. Even dialing for pizza was painful, people. I am so grateful to Doc H for trying to help out where and when he could despite being tired from long days in the OR. 

  • I felt bad I couldn't really rally myself to join in Doc H's excitement over his working gadget. On the inside I was jumping up and down... On the outside, I may have just cracked a half-smile and mumbled, "That's great, Honey. Congrats" as I honked my nose into handfuls of tissues and hacked up a bucket of phlegm.

  • In my sick and congested fog, I may, or may not, have accidentally applied Retin-A to my breasts earlier this week. They may, or may not, be peeling and burning quite a bit right now.

This week's Happies:

  • Medical Monday! I had so much fun reading each and every entry! What a wonderful group of people and bloggers!

  • Our daughter's senior portraits came in and I'm thrilled with them! They came out so good! I wish I could share them with you. She is so beautiful and I am so proud of everything she's accomplished in school and her sport.

  • Doc H's gadget worked!! I'm so excited!! (Not that gadget... get your heads out of the gutter people. Sheesh!)


  1. Hilarious...not that you're sick, but the Retin-A part had me laughing! I remember being in such a medicated fog only once. That just happened to be the time I had an appointment with our financial adviser to set up an account. I couldn't even spell my daughter's name correctly. I honestly didn't remember how and I was trying to sound it out! How embarrassing. I sure hope you feel much better soon!

    1. Thank you! I have finally come back to life... a week later. Wouldn't it be nice if mom's could take sick days???

  2. It's amazing how much work ordering dinner can feel like when you're sick. There's I can sniffle my way through this sick. And then there's I will seriously die if I have to be responsible for anything other than living to see tomorrow sick.

  3. Sorry you're sick, feel better! At least you had a lot of happies this week.

    1. Yes! I just wish I would've had the energy to express my excitement!
