GROSS!!

So…during Father’s Homily in church this morning I was thinking about how so much that the Readings said pertained to my life and really my ah ha moment yesterday…I wanted to blog about them here…well…we got home from church, I took a nap, and then went back to church to decorate the preschool room for vacation Bible school…once we got home, while hubby was making dinner, I was running my fingers through the back of my oldest son’s hair, and I saw this huge yellow tan thing sticking out…hubby was determined it was good stuck to his hair…I went and got a comb, and saw that it was pulling on my son’s scalp, so freaked that it was a bug stuck in his head!!  Hubby still insisted it was popcorn…I kept saying, he hasn’t eatten anything that looks like that!!  Our son was freaked out by then too…Eventually I was “stable” enough for hold his hand, because it hurt as he through his dad was pulling his hair trying to get it out…well once it came out it had legs and a head!!  Not food, and it WAS a bug…so out the door son and I went to the ER…He had gone camping the week before last…the thing is, it didn’t look like a regular tick…once we got to the er, we found out that it was a tick, but a dog tick…which though bigger and this one was very full…it is safer and no need to worry about disease and what not…we are assuming it got there since Tues, only because he had a hair cut Tues and the Barber didn’t come across it…My son has very thick hair and due to a head injury scar she left his hair a little long, so she may not have hit it with the comb…he did have a tick on his face the night he came home after he laied on his pillow, and that was a black, bad, deer dick, but it never bit him…I literally saw it just after it went on his face…this one, who knows how long it would have gone unseen had I not been playing with his hair…hubby and I are now totally grossed out…we will be watching him for a rash or fever, but he should be ok…

Tomorrow: VBS…picking up…and maybe that original blog post I planned…early morning, so heading for a soak and then try to go to sleep early 🙂

Just Another Day in Paradise

taken after my baby’s Baptism with my Dad and In-Laws…my FAVORTIE picture so far this year!!

had an ah ha moment…the song, “Just Another Day in Paradise” by Phil Vasar popped in my head…but I didn’t want it to sound like satire and that I was complaining about clean on a Sat with my husband off working on a paper for his Master’s degree…which was my reality cheak…I am living in Paradise…I have a family, I have children, I have a home, my husband is getting his Masters for free to promote in a job, he has…

There are people without families or that are still waiting to find that one…there are people trying so desperately for children…my children have never been less than a blessing to me, but sometimes I do not make that impression on them or my husband…We do have a home, yes I have complaints, it is base housing, there are wierd things about it, but it is a home, and in walking distance from church, hubby’s work, activities for the boys, and in a safe community, and we have one…it has not burnt down, or been blown over…my husband is able to continue his education, he is able to promote at the right time, and well all in all he has a job, which so many are searching for right now…

I pray I am able to continue to look at the things I stress about more in this new light…and rather than focus on the burdens that my blessings bring, be glad that I have those blessings…I am a Cub fan, we are optimists!!  Like I told my dad a few weeks back…”I don’t expect the Cubs to win, but I would be estatic if they do”…I still love my cubs, even if they do suck this year…just like my family…I don’t expect them to live up to my impossible expectations, I can’t even live up to them…yes I am exstatic when they surprise me…but I still love them more than I ever thought one could love someone even when they upset me…

Now to work on my bad words when frustrated or angry…but that is for another day…
