All in the day in the life of...

what happened today? Let's see...

I left my family sleeping this morning as I left for work. Probably one of the hardest things I have to do each morning. Is it selfishness that there is a little part of me that says if I have to get up early every morning, that everyone else in the house should have to too? Is that so wrong? :)

I held the cutest baby today at work. I just love them when they snuggle close. This little fellow has red hair. Reminds me of a little nephew I love, who was once a little tiny bug too.

On my lunch break I went to Walmart to look for some meds. If you remember, before going to camp I was getting sick. Well, due to prayer, I made it through the week. However, upon returning I think I am acquiring what I think is a sinus infection. Because I have already missed too much work time, I'm trying to self medicate. We shall see...and pray.

My son, who spent last night at a friend's house, came home during my lunch hour. I love him so much, yet he is such a needy individual. Get this...he went swimming, to a baseball game and spent the night with a friend yesterday, only to come home at lunch today and fuss at me about being bored. I'm seriously thinking about enrolling him in summer school just because. I hear that my hubby was once like that, when he was his age. I know we pay for our childhood and the grief we cause our parents, but why do I have to pay for my husband's childhood? It doesn't seem fair somehow...

I got "crowned" today. somehow I don't feel all royal. It was hopefully my last dental visit for a while. I seriously don't think I have a tooth left to be worked on right now. It was a "had to be there moment," but I almost swallowed the crown. It was a funny moment. the tooth that needed the crown is in the very back of my mouth, hard to get too and it is a short tooth, so it has been hard to fix. Anyway, funny moment, but again "you had to be there."

I took an hour nap. Worn out from working while not feeling good, side affects from meds and trauma from the dentist office. I probably could have slept longer, but hubby came home from work.

Please don't judge, but it was not Betty Crocker night at the dinner table. We had fish sticks, popcorn shrimp and french fries, all baked and out of a box. The highlight of my day was when my son said he loved my french fries, "better than McDonald's." Wow! I just might forgive him for causing me frustration earlier. Gotta love him.

Watched a little television, I am now chatting on the computer and in a few minutes I will be going to hit the shower, in an attempt to clear the sinuses. And that was my day. I pray between fish sticks, baby rocking and mothering my son, that I pleased God with all I did, no matter how insignificant or boring the day may seem.

I will close with a verse. My blog friend, who is such an encouraging individual has started Treasure Verse Tuesday. Check her out at http://joyinthetruth.blogspot.com/.

You will be blessed. The verse I chose for today is Psalm 40:1-3:


"I waited patiently for the Lord;
he turned to me and heard my cry.
He lifted me out of the slimy pit,
out of the mud and mire;
he set my feet on the rock
and gave me a firm place to stand.
He put a new song in my mouth,
a hymn of praise to our God.
Many will see and fear
and put their trust in the Lord."
No matter what kind of day you had, isn't it wonderful to know that God was there to help you through? Hope you had a great day!

Yes indeedy, I think that precious family of yours should rise up early with you (and call you "blessed" while they are at it!). :)

I've been crowned a few times, too. Ugh.

OK, gonna pray for that "sinus infection"! I had one in May that turned into pneumonia...thankfully I went to the doc and they caught it very early! Praise the Lord!

Oh wow...so sweet. Thanks for the shout out and encouraging words. So nice!

I hope you get to take another nap today!

Sis,
Sharing the way you do blesses others who experience an equally UP and DOWN day, thus in a ROUND-A-BOUT way, you have a very BLESSED DAY!

Hope you are feeling better soon.

Love you,
Jim-Dad

I don't like dentists either. period. But things are getting better in that dept.

I think boys will be boys, I have the same problem. Though, I DO have summerschool with him every summer, to help him not fall behind. My Kiddo, has had problems and every summer needs reinforcement, and he's come a long way.

Another idea, the local library often has summer things for kids to do.

Sounds like an eventful day! I love your style....you keep it real and fun! :)

So let's touch upon some of what I enjoyed the most.

snuggling babies....yum-mee!

impending sinus infection. My advice is lot of prayers and some extra Vitamin C and zinc on the side. ;)

It has been suggested to me that I might be joining your royal ranks of crowning in the very near future. Not a huge dentist fan either. swell!

*sometimes* homecooked meals are over-rated. hee hee.

have a great day today.....

I hope you get to feeling better soon.

Bored kids in the summer time...I think that no matter how much they end up doing, that kids must be kind of wired to complain about boredom sometimes...even though they have been busy for 24 hour straight, and only have slowed down for the last 2 hours! I have had the same exerience sometimes. I am requiring some chores and reading time each day, and whenever I hear talk of boredom, I always light up with a big smile, and tell them that it would just take me a second to think of something for them to do...toilets, watering plants, dusting...that usually sends them on their way to find something more "fun" to do pretty quickly! :)

Summer school sounds like a good idea too!

I kinda like that redheaded nephew of yours, too. He is pretty cute.

Feel better. I love ya like crazy. And miss talkin' to ya!

I'm royal, too. And i think i have that same short, back-placed crown.

Never a judger around here: we had french toast and bacon for dinner last night. I was just sooo not inspired, and that meal made everyone happy. Even if it's not on THE eating plan of health.
