I may be the only one who thinks this about this week, but it has flown by! It's been a big blur with a lot of "what day is it?" questions coming from me. I catch myself letting the days run together, but trying to savor the moments, so every now and then, I make myself stop and be present in the moment. And then came Friday's Highs & Lows, a little diddy I may pull out of my hat every now and then to celebrate the good moments and be honest about the not-so-good. A little salty to cut the sweet, right? That's what life is all about.
So highs for this week?
//I went to the neuroopthalmologist on Tuesday for my every-6-week check up, and they were pleasantly surprised with the progress I've made so far. I was told I'm "the model patient for psuedotumor cerebrii" and to keep up the good work, which made me feel like I've accomplished something in the grand scheme of things lately. 24 pounds down and still taking medication every day--a lifestyle that's become the norm for me lately! I'm defeating this illness one day at a time!
//I got a new Bible and I am so beyond thrilled about it. More on that later!
//I got to keep this sweet face yesterday for a few hours and she just has me wrapped around her little fingers. My niece might be the cutest thing I've ever seen, if I do say so myself.
//I finished Shauna Niequist's Orange Tangerines two nights ago, then sat on our back porch and just cried while wishing the book wasn't over. Her words are beautiful and inspiring and heartbreaking all at the same time, and they just make me want to get up and change the world, hug my loved ones, and squeeze the heck out of every moment, all at the same time. Read it, girls. Read it. I'm telling you, just do it.
And the lows?
//My poor husband is sick. Upper respiratory infection, complete with a Rocephin shot, steroid shot, and lots of cold medicine. So I got to spend the afternoon with him yesterday, watching our DVR, handing him Kleenex, and napping like we had no other obligations. I hate that he's sick, but I love having extra time with him. Oh, and the only thing that sounded good to him was breakfast for dinner, so that's a plus for me, don't you think?
// I have to work this weekend. Which means today is basically my Monday. Which sucks tremendously. The nightshift's biggest drawback is definitely missing out on weekend plans! And on the lines of missing out, the Renew Blog Retreat is starting today and I am beyond sad not to be a part of such an amazing weekend with such fantastic girls! Some of my favorite blog buds will be there, and I know they're going to have a blast. Girls, I'm thinking about y'all and praying for your time together!
//The flu shot. Enough said.
It's been a good week--I can't complain! What are have your highs and lows been this week? Happy Friday, loves! Xoxo
