It was a week of hospital visits (yes more than one). Doctors visits (with not so good test results for myself and someone very close to me). A week of a sick toddler, who then gave it to his Dad and I (love how gastro attacks everyone in the family, even Tira vomited). A week of a broken computer. A week basically filled with injury, illness and stress.
I was having a woe is me kind of day yesterday, but then a few things made me stop and think of how lucky I actually am, and instead of looking at the negative in each situation to find a positive. So here I am being honest and turning my negative into a positive.
I may be really broke, but I get to stay at home with Jarvis every day, something I did not get with Tamika. I may have a broken, on its way out, computer, but I have a clever partner who googled how to fix it and this old thing is now working again.
It is only gastro, and each time Jarvis farts/sharts he laughs, yes what a boy I have who already finds farting funny.
The doctors’ results are harder to turn into the positive, my good friend has been trying for ages to fall pregnant, and I finally convinced her to see the fertility specialist I saw. Her results have come back good for her age, but her partner has being diagnosed as infertile. My heart goes out to her, I know how hard it is to want a baby and not be able to have one, or in my case another one (or six). Yes call me crazy, but it fiancés and my body would let me I would have a dozen babies. Yes this scares Justin.
I got my results back; two were okay, one not so good. But a little more cutting and it should be all good. A pertinent reminder to cover up and slip slop slap.
I have already spoken about Jarvis’s fist ambulance and hospital visit, however on Monday we had a second visit to emergency. Justin, Jarvis, and I were playing in the park and Jarvis tripped over busting not only his knee, but his nose open again. But it is okay, Jarvis now thinks emergency ward is a place to play with other kids.
So, yes I have had a crappy stressful week, but sometimes you need these to think of how good your life normally is and to make a point of looking for the good. The first image is of a rose I found in our garden, I did not even know we had a rose bush until I tackled the over-grown side of the house that I always avoid. But I cleaned it up and look what I found!
I have passion fruit! Does anyone know when they are ready for picking?
