Actually, there are hundreds of them....
Here are a few....
(and yes, I am attempting to get some sympathy...)
Last week I....
Had 4 root canals
And 1 filling
And 8 crowns.
More dental work than the average person has in their lifetime. I did it in 1.5 days.
And did I mention I drove to and from Phoenix to get it all done? Maybe the most dangerous 7 hours home I've ever driven, being hopped up on pain killers and all.
Then, I got 32 cold sores,
And 145 cankers.
And ate soup for 10 days.
I got home and had to work my hiney off to make up for the time I took off.
I worked a 17 hour shift, thanks a lot, stupid call,
Then got violently ill,
And completely lost my voice.
Still ill, I drove to Salt Lake,
Took my Physics boards for ultrasound..
To celebrate, Jack and I went to the zoo,
And had a blast!!!
Then I spent some quality time with my family,
Which included making fab vintage necklaces,
Chatting it up with my awesome sisters and sil,
And punching an ear tag on a cow with my Dad.
What a great week!

To some, this picture shows a scroungy little boy, with disheveled hair, whose mother didn't even bother to wipe his breakfast off his face before posing him for the shot. Some may see a child in their pajamas, even though it is probably 10 AM.
But to me, I see my sweet boy, whose hair grows so quickly, that I can't manage to keep it tamed. I see his breakfast on his face, which shows that he jumped down and ran away from me too quickly for me to finish cleaning him up. I see a scratched elbow which shouts that summer is in full swing; and that this boy, who runs and jumps and never slows down, is loving every minute of it.
I see his Lightning McQueen pajamas, and remember the fight that ensued when trying to get him dressed in real clothes. Its a reminder that these days, its not important to sweat the small stuff.
I see a kid, beaming with pride, who has come a long way in the last year, (from eating crayons) to now drawing perfect circles!
You can see it all too now, right?
