This is the other post that I titled and apparently abandoned last week! As you read on you’ll discover why. 😉
Faith had to get a 2nd set of tubes in her ears Thursday, so we had a day of mostly relaxation and snuggles planned. Unfortunately things didn’t go quite as planned, largely because she perked up in a big way around lunchtime and was very active! In fact this post was originally titled “Snuggles and a Movie”, but we never got to the movie!
We had bought ice cream the night before because she remembered having some after her first set of tubes were put in. She wanted it almost immediately after getting home from surgery, so it wound up being her “breakfast”. I gave her just a bit to see how it would go down. After 20 minutes or so she seemed in the clear, so I gave her more. She handed me the bowl with a half scoop remaining, said, “I’m done,” and proceeded to throw it all up. (Cleaning and being the runner for a “sicky” may have also interrupted our R&R plans. ;))
My parents had come down to be my support since Brad had to work, so they were visiting until about 1:00. Shortly before they left, Faith got a boost of energy and in no time was doing cartwheels. Literally. I had scheduled parent/teacher conferences for that afternoon knowing she may be feeling well enough and since I didn’t have daycare kids, but as the day wore on and I was more and more ready for a nap myself, I was wishing she’d have been more down and out! But she wasn’t, so I went ahead with conferences (which went really well) while she played at a friend’s. After we made a quick trip to Wal Mart, and finally headed home for ice cream and snuggles. 😉
Our store was out of my two favorite Ben & Jerry’s so I tried a new flavor, Coffee Toffee Crunch. See that candy bar?? It had huge chunks in it…yum!
Moral of the story, I guess, is that even though days don’t always go as planned, be sure to carve out a moment to take it back as you intended…and snuggles and ice cream make everything great!
