A Good Day

Today marks a whole week with an illness-free family, and I must admit, I'm feeling more alive and more energetic than I have in what feels like forever! Maybe that has something to do with a few hours of delightful conversation about life and Children's Ministries with my friend Jill at Starbucks... hmmm!

I have felt like I've been walking around in a haze for more than 2 months now. It started with being snowed (and iced) in, then being out-of-commission for the holidays, then lots of sickness, then the death of Rob's mom, then more sickness. Needless to say, I've been without a semi-normal routine for far-too long now! This week I was able to get in some extra time at work (which scarcely makes up for all the work time I missed due to the aforementioned 'issues'), I was able to have dessert with some girlfriends, Starbucks with Jill this morning, and now I'm killing a few minutes before a much anticipated meeting with someone who is going to volunteer on Friday afternoons to do my administrative work! Happy day!

Oh, and I think my daddy may be coming this weekend to do some work on our condo which I'm SO excited about! Progress!

I do have a minor head injury to report though. No ambulance, no E.R., no doctor's visits, but a seriously bruised noggin! Wednesday night Rob and I were watching Bourne Identity and there was a point in the movie that I knew something was going to happen that's scary because I'd seen it before--but I couldn't remember what it was or when it would happen. I was sitting there bracing myself for something but when a man came flying through Bourne's apartment window I jumped and literally hit myself in the forehead with my cell phone that I was clutching. I am such a dork! A serious, true, bonified dork. Yup, that's me. Don't be jealous, it's a calling!

I can't believe you hurt yourself with your cell phone. Only you could pull off such a fete.

Love you

That sounds like something I would do! Though I don't know if would admit it......
We have all been sick here for the last week, and I had to miss two days of work. I stayed in bed most of the day yesterday, it was so weird.

Your blog readers have NO idea how funny it was when you hit yourself with your phone. And you forgot the part about asking me a day or two latter, "Do I have a bruise on my forehead.....from my phone?" Funny, funny, funny....we'll have pull out the oven mits for you to put on your hands the next time we watch a tense and suspenseful movie!
