Climbing Back Up-Hill
from Mom’s garden
5:50 this AM…my kids had a grand scheme to cook me breakfast in bed to cheer me up before Dad left for work. I look pretty sleeped-over in this pic, but it’s worth the looks on their faces.
They scrambled the eggs alone on the gas stove–forgot the non-stick spray, poured everything back out of the pan, they said, and started over after wiping out the pan.
Bacon, OJ, buttered toast, and a rose…
Hub said they could hardly get to sleep last night for planning it out.
I love my kids…though they nearly drove me batty yesterday after an extremely long day with the eye issue. Even their “fun” was annoying to listen to when it involved squealing and yelping. They had an energy level of 10+ and mine was trying to get to about a 4.
I was almost too tired to eat the breakfast, but AHhhhhh. The LOVE.
I ate a bit, then they devoured the rest. IT WAS really good. The best breakfast I’ve ever had, I’m sure.
I went back to sleep and after a few hours of no pain…my spirits are up.
My vision is still blurry today, but much better in my right eye. I can see the computer screen at a normal font today, though it’s still not quite there. My left eye is holding things back some.
I’m nervous about getting the contacts out tomorrow and wonder if I’m ready. I don’t know that I can handle the graininess of yesterday. I wouldn’t be at all surprised to find I still need one on the left.
Hopefully we are on the up-swing.
The overcast morning helped SO much. Thanks, Lord.
At noon today, a family with kids similar in age came and got all three for the afternoon. I’m in hog heaven at the moment. Sweet mercy, God is good.
I just HAVE to go sit in the sun for ten or fifteen minutes, even if I have to cover my head with a pillow case! I may even scoop some leaves out of the pool for The Hub while I’m at it.
Kim: This is for you…I added some sequins yesterday. HAS to be better with sequins!
