I’m more than a little worried that a lupus flareup is upon me. I went to bed at 6:00 pm on Friday – missing Mattix’s haunted house – and slept right through the soccer games on Saturday. I never miss Soccer Saturday when I’m in town. Ever. But I did sleep for close to 18 hours, which is like a week’s worth of sleep. So, that’s something to be happy about.
I have no idea where my kids come up with some of their funny antics. But sometimes, they do some really cute stuff. I may have missed soccer on Saturday and the haunted house on Friday, but I did get to witness their “belly bump” at the grocery store late Saturday. (Of course, it happened as we wandered through the wine aisle…) Location aside, it was painfully cute and super funny. I mean, where do they get this stuff?!
The kids spent the entire late afternoon playing so well together on Saturday. They played outside, played upstairs and then insisted on sleeping in the tent. How could we refuse those sweet faces?! During the summer, they had a lot of tent sleepovers, but not so much since school started. They were happy on Saturday night. It’s so cool to watch them grow up, but sometimes, I wish they’d stay this age forever.
I wrote about Molley’s excursion to the Apple store with me the other day, but I have to say it again: I really do love Apple. Like big, pink, puffy heart love Apple to infinity and beyond. (That’s serious, you guys. “To infinity and beyond” is Ed’s any my thing dating way back to our pre-marriage days, circa 1999.) Not only did the Genius Bar guy fix my Chrome crisis last weekend, but on Friday, Ed took in his sad, broken iPad. And they gave him a new one. I was already an Apple cult member, but if I hadn’t been, this week would have done it for me.
Princess Sprinkles Cookie
PSC is my work buddy. Princess Sprinkles Cookie has truly turned into the best dog I’ve had in my entire life, and that’s big stuff. She’s the sweetest, most well behaved, most well trained (that we never really trained) dog ever born. She potty trained in no time, kennel trained herself and really, never even needs to be in the kennel. From her early puppy days, she’s slept in her little bed, all night long. When we were moving last December, we were so busy we sort of forgot about her. She was letting herself outside – down the stairs, under the locked gate and back up again.
She is a huge snuggler and she follows me around the house as I work. Thanks to the lupus and extreme discomfort I experience sitting at a desk all day, I work in a weird way – on my bed, on the couch, on the floor, at a desk. I move around all day. And she has a place for every place I take. When I work on my bed, she goes and finds her “own” place. Lately, it’s been in the chest that holds the blankets when the kids forget to put the lid on it. How cute is this?!
What made you happy this week? Nothing is too big or too small.
