As a kid in school, I always LOVED Fridays. Not sure why. It wasn’t like i had some uber active social life as a 4th grader in my school that had a total of 38 elementary students. My family didn’t go camping every weekend or have some awesome weekend ritual. Fridays just always held the possibility of something FUN. Something awesome. A break from the monotony of the week.
I find that I still have that same anticipation of Fridays. (and here I will tell you that I will spare you the banality of that ridiculous “Friday” song by the semi talented girl with an auto-tuner rebecca whateverhernameis.) But the basis of the song – that something FUN is going to happen on Friday – that I will have. I want to share it with you! Tell me what makes today a “fabulous” friday for you.
Today, I am celebrating the fabulousness of seeing Kendall playing without stopping to double over in pain every few minutes from bladder spasms. (Our appointment in milwaukee yesterday with the urologist went well. I’ll update the details of that a little bit later. Both drainage tubes were removed and the surgical site “works” very well!) She sat still long enough for me to put her hair into two little braids and they are adorable. This made Kaylen all of a sudden decide that SHE wanted cute hair too, and she also sat still long enough for me to braid her hair. (And if you’re wondering why this is fabulous enough to be blogged about, you have clearly not witnessed my children’s hot mess of hair in person. They hate having their hair done. You think you’re gonna get these four cute little girls to just line up and let you comb their hair in any fun way you feel like, and you get the total opposite of that.) Anyways….it’s the little things apparently.
I am celebrating how fabulous it is that it is still warm and summery outside. It is also fabulous that I can breathe much better this Friday than I could last Friday. Also that this is the first week in over a month that we have not been in the hospital!!! It is fabulous that I finally feel like I am getting some sense of schedule and order to our often chaotic lives. I still have a lot of stuff to catch up on/plan for/put into place – but I feel like it CAN happen.
It will BE fabulous if apple can frickin fix my stupid phone that decided to go all black and start vibrating this morning. Non-stop. You can hear it all over the house. I put it in a ziploc box and shoved it in a counter and still you can hear it. And yes i’ve tried hard rebooting it. It’s completely unresponsive. I’m gonna have to take it in to the apple store and hope that I get an actual “genius” and not just an employee.
Tonite we will be together as a family again. Maybe i’ll get some Mexican food or mongolian BBQ this weekend. Maybe I’ll get to hang out with some friends who i love and miss. The day is ripe with opportunity and I cannot wait to see how it unfolds!
Tell me what’s fabulous about your friday! If you found terra talking from my post yesterday (“You will be Ok”), let me know you’re here! Look around and stay awhile! Like my facebook page to get better updates on the ever-changing craziness of our lives! (it’s over there in the sidebar——>>>>>) I was overwhelmed at how many people stopped by here yesterday to read that post. And by the comments left on my facebook wall, and in emails. If it touched you in some way, please let me know. It is so so so hard to pour out my heart and feelings like that in a post and then get no comments on it! It’s like giving a speech and having dead silence as you walk off the stage. There is no wrong thing to say. I just want to know if it connected with you in any way.
But if you don’t wanna comment on that post, then comment on this one instead – so we can all celebrate how fabulous this Friday is gonna be!
Thank you to everyone who makes my life so much better – by making me laugh, crying with me, sending me ridiculous texts – whatever you do. I love you! Have an AWESOME and FABULOUS Friday peeps!
