Life Is A Series of Ups and Downs

Think about this past week. I really had some ups and downs myself, but all is well now. One of my sons had an accident and had to have some MAJOR surgery. That was really a “downer.” He was in the hospital for a week, but the right doctor was on call for his particular problem so all seems to be on the mend now. I’m sure he wouldn’t want me to tell everyone about his situation. The “up” part of the week involves the weather and it has been very pleasant and I was able to get out and get some things done. What about your week? Did you have some “ups” and “down.” If you did, I hope that all is well now.

Be very careful with a space heater. I hope they supply you with the safest type.

I'm glad your son is okay now. I'm sure mothers never stop worrying about their children.

I'd like to SEE him. He lives about 60 miles from me and I don't see him very often. I never have been to his new house, because his wife is... shall I say difficult to get along with.

@IreneVincent That's a shame. And if he's had an accident - sometimes kids don't want their parents to worry so you wonder if you're being told the whole story. We have a few problems with our DIL too. It's probably good we live on the opposite side of the world.

The "downs" always have to do with Power of Attorney for my elderly dad which is more work every time I turn around. Did the same POA-thing for my mother, and I am growing weary of the whole thing that has been in place for 17 years. The "ups" would be delighting in our little girl pup, lots of laughter with my husband, and Christmas decorations all in place.

Wow! 17 years. That's quite a long time and I'm sure it has involved a lot of stress on you. Your new pup sounds nice. What did you name her?

@IreneVincent Molly is rescue dog #5 in the line of dogs we have rescued. She is our first girl dog. She is a bit of a princess, but she is worth it.

Yes, I hope so. I have a busy week coming up, starting tomorrow. It's supposed to be in the 40s and I am going to need to go out in the cold a couple days. So, I hope its not going to be too bad. RAIN in the forecast for tomorrow.

@IreneVincent We had to drive up to Portland (100 miles each way) twice to pick up and then to return my daughter's Chihuahua puppy. We dog sat for several days. There is a photo of the pup in her red jacket on a post.

It's mostly been a very positive week. I have a sinus infection that is causing me grief, but I haven't let it slow me down a lot. My daughter suggested a sinus rinse. I have done it twice and things are starting to move....now the post nasal drip is making me cough...oh well, progress. Hopefully by Monday I'll be good as new.

Sinus problems are very common especially during allergy seasons. I hope you feel better soon.

I've learned that if it wasn't for the downs I might fail to appreciate the ups.

Yes, I would have to agree with that to some extent.
