in case you were wondering…

When it rains, it pours is a real thing in our house.  Seriously.  Every once in a while we have 48 hours of dramatic life lessons, one after another, until I am convinced we will all end up cocooned in our beds, rocking ourselves to sleep.

Sometimes hope comes from the most unlikely of sources.  Like, say, a high school student, whose heartfelt explanation of how it will get better poured over my weary parent soul like fresh water to a drowning man.

There were four birds perched at the feeder on Saturday morning, with a fifth queued up on the pole.  It’s the first sign I’ve seen that our birds can share space.  Apparently there’s been some sort of solo feeding rule in place while they acclimate to the feeder.

Bear’s basketball team heads into the tournament with a 6 wins, 6 losses record.  They’ll play their first game tomorrow afternoon.  Bring the heat, ladies!

Irony of ironies, I’m getting fillings replaced on Valentine’s Day.  That’s right, folks…I will be kicking off Love Day with Novocaine injections and that god awful sound of a drill grinding into my teeth.  Pray for my dentist.

    • Yeah. That’s what I thought, too. I blame the scheduling constraints of a mom with school age kids who is heading 2 towns over to have work done “ASAP.” Being a grownup sucks sometimes. 🙄


  2. Oh, I know what you mean. Years ago, we had been going through a series of “lessons”. We had just pulled up in front of our house with the kids in the back seat and after hubby and I discussed the trials we had been going through, I said, “What else could go wrong?” As we were walking into the house, just seconds after my remark, a drunk driver came around the corner and hit the car. I have never again said those words. God was watching over us as he hit right where the kids were sitting. I am not sure what God had planned with this accident, but I am sure that the young driver learned a very important lesson.

  3. Happy Valentine’s Day! Hope your mouth isn’t too sore, after your dentist visit. … I’m glad to hear the birds have discovered your bird feeder! I’ve noticed here, it takes them about 3 days to adjust to anything new. They’ll send out a few scouts, who will then call in the rest of them 🙂

    • Happy Valentine’s to you, too! Mouth is manageable, thanks, though that procedure to remove silver fillings is no picnic!
      We watched the craziest birds today — little ones hopping in and out, a female lovebird that pecked her mate all over the yard — Phoebe sat at the window jerking her head back and forth. Such fun!
