Another month has flown by and in my true nature, I’ve procrastinated once again to the last day to take pictures. This has been a rough week for me. Monday morning, I waved good bye to my husband as he flew off to Taipai, Taiwan. He originally was be gone until Sunday but I got the phone call that his trip would be extended longer and he wasn’t sure when his return flight would be. Poo. I hate when he is gone. I don’t sleep well. My kids seem a little off kilter and I just miss him terribly. Plus Sunday is my birthday and Tuesday is Valentine’s Day. Looks like I will not be celebrating those with my hubby this year.
After dropping him off at the airport, I had to make a doctor’s appointment for myself. I have PINK EYE!!! Just miserable. Eyes that are irritated and don’t function are not a photographers friend. Then to top it off, I think we might have to put our dog down. I just discovered a tumor on the inside of his gums. It wasn’t there when I bathed him last week and now it’s the size of a golf ball. I will be making an appointment with the vet tomorrow to see what needs to be done. I’m just ready to throw in the towel. Grace asked me what was wrong and I just told her that sometimes adults have bad days just like kids. And today I’m having a bad day.
But despite the bad news this week, I did have pockets of sunshine throughout the day. My kids haven’t caught my pink eye. I met with a friend at a park to enjoy the sunshine and talk shop. My husband has a job. I’m so grateful that he does. And we can celebrate my birthday when he gets back. I have fantastic in laws that will drive 3 hours to pick up my son to watch during the week when my husband travels. Not having the bundle of energy around does make it easier for me when Chris is gone.
New hair cut and color. Love the glasses?!? I don’t wear them out of the house often but the pink eye has forced me to.
This is a look I seem to get more frequently from my daughter the older she gets.
Very frosty morning for down here. And yes, my daughter still refuses to put her coat on.
Special treat of breakfast out at a restaurant before school.
Unintentional portrait of my friend. We met at the park to discuss the wedding that I shot as her second shooter and to just spend time together.
Decorating her Valentine’s Day box for school.
Driving out to dinner to celebrate my birthday with my mom.
My little man returned home today just in time to celebrate.
Now head on over to Ana Luisa Solis’s blog to see what she has been up to in the last month.
