Good news

You are reading the words of the February employee of the month at my newspaper. I can't believe it. I have never been one before so I was surprised.

I got a call early this morning. My son was being rushed to the er after throwing up most of the night. He has stomach virus. I talked with him while he was at the er. My son amazes me with wit and insight. He gets that from his mommy. He told about them putting an IV in his arm to give him water. "Mommy, I didn't like that but I was a big boy." I told him that I was proud of him. After they released him and gave him the anti nausea drug.

My mom started her chemo today. She said it is her birthday and she's still alive so what's there to be sad about. I love her courage and grit. I am looking forward to this weekend.

I thinking about doing some community service type work. Maybe with Habitat for Humanity or volunteering at a nursing home. Even though things are crazy in my life, they could be a whole lot worse. So I want to give back somehow. I just haven't figured out how yet.

Daily Dose

1. It is going to be in the 70s this week. I love good weather. I am planning to wear this cute pink sweater set tomorrow with my peek-a-boo high heels.

2. Being able to talk NASCAR with the sports guys. It is the only sport I talk with them about.

3. I am the employee of the month.

Stopping ED from gaining

One of the hardest things I had to ever do was to explain my ED to my 11-year-old son. His father had talked to him about it, which I have...
