When It Rains . . .

Have you ever had one of those weeks 
that you just want to erase from the calendar or at least your memory bank?
Kind of like "Alexander and the Terrible, Horrible, No Good, Very Bad Day?"
Last week was one of those!

The week started with Mr. Tennis not feeling well and 
ending up in the hospital for a couple days for tests.

Miss Maddy had a ton of homework!
Seriously -- what's with the math these days??
I thought all numbers were rational numbers -
I felt irrational and cranky after trying to decipher that homework.

Stress and anxiety made me wake up around 3 am every day
so I could worry in peace and quiet resulting
in a huge killer headache and neck ache.
Advil and some old muscle relaxers to the rescue!

On a better day for Muffy -- ignoring those pesky cats!

Even our pup Miss Muffy got ill and had to see the vet!
Still not sure what is the matter with her right front paw 
causing her to limp and cry. 
 Have you ever tried to soak a dog's paw???

No more pity party here.
This week is looking much better,
 the sun is shining, the temps are not freezing
and we all seem to be feeling pretty good!

A highlight from the week  --
while waiting in the hospital, the piped-in music changed from 
the usual Muzak to a Brahms lullaby!
So sweet - they play that whenever a new baby is born!
A little reminder - life is precious -- 
treasure every moment.

I love Muffy ignoring the pesky cats.

And, yes.....when it rains it pours! Keep up your good attitude!

Praying that this week brings much joy and happiness! Sounds like last week needs to be permanently erased. Hugs!

Holy cats! What a crazy week! I am so thankful for a new week too!

Love, love, love the sweet lullaby at St. E's!

Hope everyone is feeling better soon!

I can relate to the stress. Hope Mr. Tennis and puppy are doing better. xoxo
