I was thrilled to come back from vacay to find out Nancy, at A Rural Journal, has returned to the blogosphere and has revived her Random 5 Fridays. I love her subtle wit and missed her while she was taking a break.
So, here’s my Random 5:
1. Seems like I’ve been sick for.ev.er. It started with the stomach flue a couple days before our vacay to Mexico. Who has stomach issues BEFORE going to Mexico?! Add to that a cold passed to me by Entrepreneur and The Investigator that is still hanging on…and on…and on……
2. Even with the above issues, vacay was a welcome break in our middle Missouri winter. It’s amazing how a little sun, surf, sand and pina coladas can ease most every ailment. Here’s a peek into our week HERE and HERE.
3. I’m nursing a bruised rib….that I received on vacay. Yes, you heard correctly. No, it wasn’t the result of too many pina coladas. It was the result of a crib brought to our suite for Twix that didn’t have a drop side. It was about four feet off the ground with a mattress that was literally 30 inches below the top of the rail. And when you’re only 5’3″ and leaning over said crib, trying NOT to drop a sleeping baby to the mattress below, something has to give…..or pop as the case was. The Investigator and I fixed the mattress problem with pillows, as you can see in the photo. But, I’m here to tell ya, a bruised rib hurts for a long, long time.
5. Entrepreneur received results from the second set of scans. No change. Good news as it means the spots on his lungs and thyroid have not grown or increased. If the next two follow up scans are the same, they may decide the kidney cancer has not spread, give him a clean bill of health and this nightmare can be over. But, in the meantime, we’ll live with tentative optimism for 6 more months. A huge thank you to all who are keeping our family in your prayers. I can’t tell you how much it has meant to us.
So there, my random five for the week. Hope you all have a wonderful weekend!
