We all know that I’m a bad blogger. So much so that I kinda want to make the words bad blogger a link that will bring up funny cat videos just to compensate for it.
Kinda like this – bad blogger.
Ah. Now we all feel better since we watched some funny cat videos huh?
This past week I didn’t mean to desert you. What I couldn’t tell you in the interest of safety is that Mr. Byrd was gone for almost two weeks on a business trip, which was hard.
If that wasn’t hard enough last Monday I woke up so extremely sick that I had to load the kids up in the van and we spent the morning in the ER, while Mr. Byrd was oblivious in North Dakota. I didn’t want to tell him because I knew he would just worry.
Once we finally had a diagnosis of a kidney infection and medicine I texted him to let him know what had happened but that we were home and fine.
The rest of Monday and pretty much all of Tuesday I slept. The kids were amazing. Yes, the house was in rough shape but they stayed inside like I asked and played quietly while I slept on the couch.
Wednesday we got up, cleaned the hot cocoa mess off of every single surface in the kitchen and then went to pick up Mr. Byrd at the airport. I came back and fell asleep on our bed.
Thursday and Friday were the same.
It was a rough week.
Saturday I thought I was well enough to get up really early and have a garage sale. After a lot of heavy lifting and sitting outside for hours, we had made $10. Woo- hoo! Don’t spend all of that in one place…. except that we did.
As we were closing up shop from our pitiful garage sale a nice boy scout came by selling trash bags for $12.
We closed the garage sale at a negative $2.
And all the heavy lifting made me feel bad. Sunday I woke up at 9:30 am and fell back asleep on the couch at 11am and slept until 2pm.
Basically the past week I didn’t blog because I was sleeping. You can call me Sleeping Beauty if you would like.
So even though I’m not 100% well, it’s time to get going again. Thanksgiving is coming and Christmas will be here before we know it.
In the words of Sleeping Beauty, “let’s get this party started”. She said it, you can check.
So please excuse this bad blogger and watch funny cat videos instead.
