day two and counting...

I tried to think of a picture that would capture the joie de vivre of today. (Ang is doing the 365 thing and I thought I might occasionally play along.) I didn't think you'd really be interested in my countless wastebaskets full of billions of kleenex though. Nor did I think the number of empty cough medicine bottles and cold pill packets would delight the soul. However, both of these describe my "joy of living" for the moment. (and I am a happy sickie. really, I am. Happily spreading my germs amongst my beloved family members...I hear sneezing in the other room. I think we need more kleenex.)

Instead, I got a phone call. One that every mother of a driving aged child hopes not to get. And while all car occupants are okay (thank you, Jesus!), my eldest child is unhappy and her car is...mooshed. I'm sure she will be rather graphic in her unhappiness on her blog but suffice to say, she and Brandon had just finished enjoying a delightful lunch when a big bad vehicle picked a fight with her sporty little escort zx2. And Jessi learned life lesson #782...how to deal with the insurance company when one is involved in an auto accident.

So, now that my heart rate has returned to normal, my box of kleenex and I (Josh got me some Puffs with lotion! My nose will be eternally grateful.) are going to take a nap. Another nap. Because we have the stamina of a three week old infant at the moment. I'm blaming it on the massive quantities of cold meds buzzing happily through my veins.

So...what kind of excitement has 2009 brought to your doorstep so far?

I suppose the only excitement so far is lunch w/ my parents today after a thrilling trip to the post office and a stop by the district clerk's office to pick up record copies for work...so I guess nothing to thrilling...

Have you tried Sudafed Shower Shots?

Get to feeling better asap!

Love, Annette

Oh that is tough for a young driver and tougher on the parents. Glad everyone is fine but the car...My middle child (grown up and in mid life) just totaled her car a few weeks ago. The hands of God protected her and the others involved but the car a mess. Praise God for his mercy!!! Hope you feel better, I found you via Nise.

Oh...praying for your cold...and praising God that no one but the car was hurt. We went through this a couple of months ago...is there ever a time that you can relax with young drivers...I guess that is why we pray over their comings and goings all the time.

Bless you all.

Umm... I hope this is the worst of your photos for the year! Glad you didn't take one of your wastebaskets or medicine bottles! :) I hope you are feeling better soon. This sounds like a nasty one!
Love,

Not a great start for a year, but it can only go up, I pray for you! Not fun to be a parent with those terrible calls. The only thing good about it is you hear their voice and know they're (a) alive and (b) breathing! Thank the Lord. Feel better soon! Love, AnnetteG
