An Ominous Feeling

Some days are more eventful than other days. Some days are quite boring. Some days you wish you could just forget about. That was yesterday. It all started Sunday night when Keegan got a stomach bug.  Monday morning Jonathan left to go to Dallas and I was filled with anxiety hoping that Jack and I would not get sick. Obviously, I felt something ominous coming on, because the next 24 hours proved it.

Monday afternoon Keegan got sick again and I sprayed lysol religiously around the house. Jack woke up at 10:45 that evening and cried almost through out the night because he was teething. I ended up putting him in bed with me for a very restful sleep. (not!) Tuesday morning, Keegan woke up and he was dehydrated that he was very limp and not engaging in conversation. Luckily, I had pedyalite and that made him bounce back rather quickly. It was a scare, but thanks to a wise mother (my mother) it was taken care of.

So after a crazy morning and getting Jack ready for school, I patted myself on the back thinking how well I handled all the above situations without losing it. We get in the car, pull out of the garage and I hear a "SCRAPE...CRUNCH!" Yep. I ran into Jonathan's car that is normally not there. The side of my scraped and dented the jeep and my expedition has a scrape on the side. Dang.

The afternoon was uneventful, until we left the house to get Jonathan from Enterprise. I locked the door, got distracted for a split second with Jack, and Keegan pulled the door closed. Quickly I realized that my keys were right inside.  Jonathan's boss had to drop him off of the house and I really wanted to hide from him. Great first impression, huh? We got into the house, by way of a screwdriver, and then ate my sorrows away at our local mexican food joint.

I guess in the whole scope of things going on in this world, this is minor, but for sure I was ready to close my eyes and go to sleep last night.

Anyhow, I am really glad that it is Wednesday morning and I get to go to bible study. So far no stomach bug for anyone else in the family, so I am counting my blessings!
