This Week I am Thankful For:
Thank you Labor Day for letting us have a Labor-less day!
Fall Planner cover
I ordered this baby months ago & have counting down till September so I could put it on!!! Isn't it the cutest?
My brother has been letting Baby roam more & more with Cochese in the big field & they are just best buddies out there. She's still so young - & little next to Cochese - so we just are taking our time letting them stick together. Cochese does look out for her though- worries about her. And he wants to just be near her ... awww.... he is so much more content when he can 'take care of her' - big protective brother.
Didnt die in a blood bath
What a nightmare. I usually get massive, horrible nose bleeds. I'm used to it - but they usually happen in the morning or late at night (when I wake up, when I go to bed) For some reason, I was driving home talking to Ricky on the phone & was like, "I taste blood"... & then the gates of hell unleashed on my face. I'm not even joking. Blood pouring everywhere. WHILE I'M DRIVING!!!!! I'm gagging & choking on blood, trying to shove McDonald's napkins up my nose because those were closest to grab in the side pocket of my car door & Ricky is yelling- PULL OVER - PULL OVER! ... I'm nothing but a goal setter & knew I was about 2.5 miles from home. I can make it! But when I opened my car door in the drive way, I was still gushing. I couldnt even pull the napkins out fast enough to put another one in without clots & blood dripping everywhere.
After about 20 minutes, it slowed down enough to where I didnt think I was going to choke to death. So I'm thankful it stopped - I made it home safely - all a little bit stained & needing a hose down for my face. My drive way felt the same way.
HSM Kick off
We're back to Home Groups on Wednesday nights. & mercy, we had a HUGE group to kick it off! So much fun! & already such good discussion.
I think I mentioned Monday my conversation with the PA at the Hematologist last week. I really liked her. I'm loving all my female doctors & PA's I've had lately. GIRL POWER!
PRAISE THE LORD ... HALLELJUAH... ALL THE HIGH LIFTED WORSHIP HANDS!!
Makes all the needles & tears a little more worth it. Now, if only I could FEEL the benefit of that ferritin!
Ice Cream Sandwich cake
It was my one our work family's birthday this past weekend & another coworker made the coolest (literally) ice cream cake. I'm not a big ice cream person - but I do like ice cream sandwiches - I never claimed to NOT be a weirdo - & I really like whipped cream. So she told me she layers the ice cream sandwiches, puts a layer of whipped cream, then repeat & top with mini M&M's - which someone said, put those M&M's in the middle layer too - yes please! But man, i feel like this is something I can do!! Which is saying something!
Speaking of big brother Cochese above - I'll give my brother props for helping me out this weekend by hooking me up with a salesman that is trying to help me out with a car. AND when I was running from car lot to car lot, my brother went over & fed Baby for us so we didn't have to drive ALLLL the way back home without finishing our car hunt.
Ricky's money knowledge
Let me tell you - this man - he knows numbers when it comes to dollar bills y'all! it's funny because all these discussions about financing & car prices & car payments, Ricky is like Rain Man. He can shoot out the answer before people have their calculators out. & then they're shocked when he's right. Me, I'm in the corner turning in circles with this kind of stuff. We balance each other out - that's for sure.
Tell me something good about your week
