It's Friday! 
I feel like Friday always calls for a celebration, especially now that I am back in the working world. It is such a good feeling knowing that a whole week of work is completed, with all the challenges and celebrations that come with it.  When I was staying home part time, Friday just didn't have the same kind of sparkle and sense of achievement as it does now (although I did have those moments staying home, just not as definitive as it's friday!). Now I feel like, "yes! I did it!". :o) 

This week has been a wing-dinger for sure starting out with Michael coming down with a stomach bug on Monday. We are in the depths of concert season at school so I needed to be at rehearsal in the morning but then I was able to come home with him for the rest of the day. We watched three Disney movies (including Peter Pan which I had not seen for years and is awesome!!) and did lots of napping.


He seemed to be doing better later in the week and we watched Scott's hockey game on Wednesday night. However, I got the dreaded call from Michael's childcare yesterday that he had gotten the bug again. :o(

So he is home today with Scott and hopefully on the mend.

I have been doing a considerable amount of feeling sorry for myself lately, so I've been hitting the Y again early in the morning before school. I enjoy going in the mornings and it seems to get my day off to a great start (minus the 5am wake up call-that will probably never stop being painful!). 
This morning I got to see this beautiful pink cloud sunrise. Believe me, the photo does not do it justice. It was a nice reminder to me to be thankful for all the blessings this week brought...even if they came in the form of challenges. 

Have a great weekend!


  1. Poor baby having that stomach bug all week! Hope he is doing much better! And that sunrise is beautiful!

  2. I hope your little guy is feeling better!

    I work from home now, so Fridays aren't as exciting as they used to be when I worked elsewhere all week. But then Sundays are no longer dreadful either. ;)

    Good for you for getting up early to go to the gym. I can barely get up for a shower!

  3. I know what you mean about the stomach bug - we had it hit us hard a couple weeks ago - it was horrible! Hope he is doing ok now! It felt good to be outside and back to normal after that! :)
