I've got a piper down

"Perhaps all the dragons in our lives are princesses who are only waiting to see us act, just once, with beauty and courage. Perhaps everything that frightens us is, in its deepest essence, something helpless that wants our love." -- Rilke

KJ is home today. She's got a really bad cough, no fever. She had softball practice last night from 7 to 8:30 PM. Poor thing was so cold when we got home. She took a nice hot shower and went to bed w/ the heating pad. I gave her some cough medicine and she was out like a lite. Chris let her sleep in this morning and she woke up around 9 AM. She's just hanging out on the couch watching movies on my new laptop. She thinks she's so cool.

I'm getting some housework done. Taking down all the Valentine's Day stuff. I was so upset this morning...I was hand-washing some of the Valentine's Day dishes that had food on them and I broke my favorite plate. When it slipped out of my hand it also broke another Valentine's Day in the sink. Two for one. The big red plate was my favorite. I bought it several years ago at Target. It wasn't expensive or anything but it was really big heart shaped, deep red dish. I always displayed it on my kitchen island.

Wednesday night I didn't sleep so well so I ended up sleeping in the guest room. Chris & the girls knew I had a rough night so they were very quiet and let me sleep in on Thursday morning. I won't let that happen again. I first noticed something was wrong when my perfume bottles were out of order. Apparently the little one likes a spritz of Vera Wang Princess every now and then. Then, KJ got off the bus and I noticed she was wearing one of my silver-disc necklaces. Then, T gets off the bus and I noticed she was wearing a pair of my Brighton dangling earrings. Crying out loud!! They could at least wait until I'm dead or in the looney bin before they start pillaging thru my stuff. I was just upstairs sleeping!!! The clincher, however, was last night at bedtime. The Crest Whitestrips was still in the drawer but completely empty. I guess KJ thinks her teeth aren't as white as they should be and she's been sneaking Crest Whitestrips!! Chris told her to cut back on the caffeine and nicotine.

Good morning.
The question was posed to me and a few people...How do you eat a elephant?
My answer was...“One bite at a time."
But one smart young man said...“With barbque sauce!!!!”
In other words... We must find pleasurable ways to do difficult things.
Keep your eyes on the prize! Think of the health while you're in the gym.
Think of the harvest while you sow your seeds! Stay focused! Stay strong!
God is Love,

Sorry your Kiddo is feeling icky! You could look at the "borrowing" in a different way, they obviously think you are pretty cool to be wanting to wear YOUR things! We all know they have a super cool Mama!!! Have a great weekend!!!
