Friday Night Lights.

I think the second week of school and work routines really got to me.

Between figuring out again how to juggle school, children, busy toddler, family commitments and the normal errands that are just a part of life.


By this morning I was tired and ready for a break. Lucky for me, H slept in until 7:00 a.m.

Haven't you heard, 7:00 a.m. is the new 9:30.

I called my mom this morning and knew that things were amiss just by the sound of her voice. Little did I know it was because of her pain that was so bad it caused a trip to the hospital.

My mumsy, the strongest, most pain tolerant person I know was in pain.

My mom and dad had a rough day, cancelling the trip they'd been planning on going on.

You know that feeling you get when you watch a child fall down and bump their head or skin their knee?

That ouchy, ugh feeling.

When it's your parent feeling that pain it feels ten times worse.

I finished the book Love You, Mean It this week, which is our book club book for this month. What a lesson on making every day count in this life! May all the love you's I say have meaning and may I never hold back on saying it.

My other enjoyment this week has been Season Three Grey's Anatomy which came out on dvd Tuesday. Of course we had to get it so that we can catch up before Season Four starts later this month. Anyone want to record the episodes for me?

Tonight though will be an early night as we start disc two and enjoy a Mike's Hard Lemonade and settle in for a quiet, fall weekend. It's just been one of those weeks and tonight is one of those nights.

First of all, please know I am sorry your Mom is in such pain and that they needed to cancel their trip. My thoughts and prayers are with you.

Secondly, congrats on making it through a tough week.

Thirdly, I share your enjoyment of Mike's Hard Lemonade and Grey's Anatomy. Sadly, I have no devices that can record anything on TV...talk to Anne!

I hope that the weekend will be just what you need.

I hope that sometime this weekend you can get some extra sleep. It far outweighs anything else in helping you feel better.

BTW: I could not agree with you more about telling people who are near & dear, that you love them - often and said with meaning for one never knows if it might be the last opportunity this side of heaven.

I also hope something can be done for your mom's pain. Parents' pain really does ripple out to the children like a tidal wave. Has to be weighing heavily on your mind.

Even though I've never met you, I'd just want to give you a hug right about now. Something about human contact with someone in pain to let them know you care...I am sure you give your mom hugs every opportunity.
