Sunday Lately #121


Laughing: I’m trying to laugh about more lately, but it has been a rough week, however, currently, my dog is in heat….we adopted her from the local shelter about five months ago and I was pretty sure this was coming. We had to wait for her health check before we could have her fixed as she was heart worm positive and we needed to get her healthy enough for surgery. She just had her health check, and she’s doing really well. And then she went in to heat. 😛 I didn’t want to go out and spend money on a doggie diaper when we’re only going to use it once, so I found a 10-year-old pair of my own underwear, cut a hole for her tail, and put in a cloth liner. Pretty sure my husband is laughing at me and I’m laughing at the whole thing.

Suggesting: My mom and I have been going back and forth suggesting ideas of things to do while we are on vacation in Scotland next month. There really are no bad suggestions, right?

Reminding: This week, especially, I have been reminding myself how lucky I am, just how much good is in my life. My family was sick at the beginning of this week. My immune system tends to dictate that I always get the bugs going around with the max symptoms and duration, so I was sick from when my son got sick to when my husband started feeling better a few days later, ended up in excruciating pain head to toe that felt like all of my nerves were frayed and rubbing together. I didn’t sew for two days and I was stressing because I had projects to get done. As I began to recover and feel better, I was reminded just how much I have in my life, how good I have it, how much worse it truly could be, and how I really wouldn’t change anything. 

Embracing: My new jeep:P Yes….I love it and I kinda wanna hug it. I have wanted a jeep since before I purchased my first car back in 2004. There was always some sort of practicality issue. It may still not be the most practical choice, but I’m at a place where if I don’t do it now, my arthritis might dictate that I and not physically able to later down the line, so it is done. I am the proud new owner of a lifted Jeep Wrangler Unlimited and am learning to remember the Jeep Wave. 😛

 Creating: Opportunities! Sometimes they come to us and sometimes we have to work really hard to find our own. I have been blessed to have so many presented to me and those wonderful experiences have pushed me to seek out more.
Hoping you all have a great Sunday!
