I've had better weeks. And yes, I'm well aware it's only Tuesday, but I'm not placing any bets on this craptastic week-thus-far making a hard turn into Goodville. This picture really tells you all you need to know.
But let me back up. While this week, so far, has been low on the awesome scale, the past weekend? High on the scale. It was a 10. J and I (and Miss Mabes) were honored to travel to Houston to celebrate his mom. She gives, and she gives, and she gives ... and Saturday night, she was honored as a Woman of Achievement for her volunteer work and activism. We were so proud to be there with her and J's dad. And to see J's sister and her husband and their RIDIC adorable baby girl. Oh, and spa treatments. Oh, and shopping. And CHICK-FIL-A. Twice. (Jillian and I have some catching up to do.) Anyway, it was an excellent weekend.
Andplusalso, shout out to the OTHER mother, too. Mommo. Who's been woken up early by an SOS call when I couldn't get out of bed to take care of the kids, met us at the ER this morning to retrieve Miss Unicorn Pajamas, bought and delivered us groceries, and held feverish, sleepless Mabel while I caught a nap here and there, done the preschool pick up, the Walgreens drive thru.....basically, she's a saint. Thanks, Mommo!! We have the best moms, J and I, we really do.
