Sick and Tired

This week has seriously stunk.

I mean, majorly.

Because I have been sick.

Which means the kids have basically had full run of the house.

Which is bad.  So very bad.

Keith decided to try a new canvas for his artistic skills.  And of course, a regular pen and paper wouldn't do.  He decided to go big or go home.  Which roughly translates into sharpie.

I still don't feel well.  I have been in bed basically all weekend and week.

Which is why life has been boring here.

The good news, though, is Jeffrey had two interviews.  One was for a part time job.  The other, he was told he is overqualified for, and so they took his resume and sent it higher up.  He has an interview on Tuesday.  I am praying my guts out and keeping my fingers crossed that he will get the job so I can quit and be a full time stay at home mom.  Which has been my dream since I was a little girl.

I always marvel at the balance of things.  Things can be up and down at the same time.

Oh man I am sorry you are feeling sick. I think that it is more horrible to be sick in the summer - Ugh!!

I'm going to say a little prayer that your husband gets the job he wants!

Dreams do come true - sometimes patience is a must, but I know you already know that!! You are awesome!

I'm shooting you an email!!!! Anyhow I pray Jeffery gets it. He is very talented at work and you are one of the most gifted stay at home mom's I've ever met so I think it would work great for him to get a great new job!!!!!!

FEEL BETTER!!! Harmon has tried that before. I kid you not, I had to learn after his "couch Sharpie art" that those darn things have to stay under lock and key.

My heart went out to you {and your walls} when I read that Keith discovered not just any marker, but a SHARPIE! You and Jeffrey will be in my prayers, I hope his job interviews go well. Keep us updated! :)

Man, being a mom is rough enough without being sick on top of it, praying you feel 100% soon!

As well as praying Jeffrey gets the job that is best for him and your family!

Sharpie!!!! Yikes, hopefully he got the majority on the paper.
