Today is one of those days when I have to keep my mind focused on positive things because the not-so-positive ones keep trying to put me in a headlock! Oldest DS kicked his fever bug, but has developed an ear infection. It was a rough night last night, but my DH stepped up to the job and I was able to sleep fairly well in between the youngest waking up here and there. The middle DS was still running a 103 degree fever, so slept rather restlessly as well. We all survived and I gave DH some extra hugs this morning for his courageous night watch! 🙂
This morning, we received the news that a neighbor was killed in a freak accident at work, leaving behind a wife and three young children (5 and under). He was only 33. It’s always so hard to know how to help or what to say, but I do think a home cooked meal will definitely be in order for them once we get this bug completely kicked out the door!
Given all the less than cheerful goings on around here, I decided it was time to make a happy kind of card! Today’s Ways to Use It Challenge (#309) over at Splitcoast Stampers is to use birthday themed things on a card. I’ve been wanting to use this sentiment stamp on a card and decided today was the day! Love it! The little car stamp I’ve had a while too and had purchased it to use for one of my son’s birthdays.
