A Great Day

I was blessed enough to have all three of my kiddos in church with me today.  It was the best day I've had in a long, long time.

Tiger is in a wheelchair right now, still not able to walk comfortably.  Hopefully this will not last too long.
I tried hot rollers again.  I did not get curly hair, I got big hair.  Which is weird because my hair does hold a curl.  However, it was drizzly and humid today, so perhaps I need to try again.

New to me Kiyonna dress in a size 1, which is a 14/16.  Love this lovely watermelon hue!

I took it off as soon as I got home so I wouldn't get food on myself.  I'm a slob when it comes to eating, drinking, and brushing my teeth.

Guess who was Jesus today for the Easter service?  Yes, that's my husband.  I had to color his hair brown since he is almost completely gray!

"Mom, You Need Autism To Understand This..."

While Tiger slept most of yesterday away, I spent the entire day cleaning and scrubbing the boys room.  It was horrifying; it definitely smelled of sickness and dear goodness me the clothes I found.  I started washing clothes at 8:30am on Thursday...and I am still going.  Sure wish it wasn't raining so I could use my clothesline and speed this process up, but oh well.

Bucket was at school, so I hung up the clothes which had fallen off hangers inside the closet (Bucket uses the closet, Tiger uses an armoire, keeps their stuff separate and easier to manage) and put away his jeans and pajamas.

Then all hell broke lose.

Apparently, he had a "system."  I never knew it, but apparently he faced certain shirts one way, and all of his favorite shirts were on black hangers.  I hung up UNFAVORITE shirts on black hangers and he let me know about it.  "Mom!  You can't understand this!  It's too complicated!"  I already knew he color coded his shirts and at least I got that right.  I asked him about shirts with patterns, and he sighed and said "That very question haunts me,"  and at that point I got the giggles and he got pretty mad.  What can I say, he cracks me up!

We are home from the hospital.  The surgery went well, we were home even faster than I thought we would be.  As you can see, he is resting as comfortably as one can, when a 50lb puppy insists on sleeping right next to you.

"It's ok, Daddy.  I won't step on your incision...WHOOPS."

When I say it has been a long couple of weeks, I kid you not.  I also fired our dentist today for rescheduling my kids for the millionth time.  I took tomorrow off JUST to take them to the dentist and they called me to today to reschedule them, and I said, "You know what, you called ME to give them this appointment months ago.  And now you are giving me one day to reschedule, and you called me last time to reschedule and I've had enough of you.  I will be finding a new dentist."  Then I hung up.  How do places like this stay open?!?!

I have to remember the Word when the world drives me crazy.  I say it all the time, then get overwhelmed and frantic.  I guess I don't learn very quickly.
