Apples and Lemons

On Thursday (Nov 17th), I texted Rob and told him my day was filled with too many lemons! It was only noon, but my day was not going well. It started in the wee hours of the night when Nixon continued to wake up crying. He wouldn't nurse, had a small fever, and wasn't feeling well. I found out what it must be like having a baby with colic. Nixon and I got hardly any sleep that night. Then came the rest of the lemons...

  • I had to skip my workout at the gym
  • Sophie spilled a glass of chocolate milk all over the floor
  • It snowed (blizzard-like) for the first time this season
  • Had to take Nixon and Molly into the doctor's office
  • Nixon and Molly both had ear infections
  • Nixon had his head appointment that day and only grew .1%
  • After I mixed up Nixon a bowl of rice cereal, it slipped out of my hands and spilled all over the floor
  • Sophie knocked down a tube of glass tea candles and broke several of them on the floor
  • Molly had an accident at school and during my only break of the day I had to run to her school, strip off dirty wet clothes, sponge bathe her in the sink, and put on a new change of clothes

It was a day full of lemons, but I did notice several tender mercies too. The apples of my day...
  • I got to shower in the morning
  • It stopped snowing before I had to drive 20 minutes to the doctor's office
  • I made almost every light on the way to the doctor's office
  • I didn't have to wait too long in the waiting room at the doctors office so I was able to make it to Nixon's 2nd doctor's appointment on time
  • I had a BOGO coupon for a Roxberry smoothie. I tried a new flavor (peenya colada) and it was yummy
  • I didn't have any cars ahead of me in the drive-thru at the pharmacy and at the smoothie shop
  • Nixon took a long afternoon nap
  • Rob made dinner that night
  • I got 3 packages in the mail. It was a little ironic that my one of my mail items said 'happy thoughts'.

So in the end the good and bad evened out, I survived, and the day ended!
