A Roller Coaster Ride

Hi Everyone~
This week as been full of ups and downs. Do you know the type??? You feel like you are on a roller coaster.The highlight of the week was my daughter Avery's 9th birthday on Friday. As you may remember, she got to have her room re done instead of a party. Not too bad of an alternative. It turned out perfect for her. Pic coming up.  We decorated the house hot pink and black and then I went a bit nuts at Trader Joes and bought all the pink flowers I could find to put around the house.
I lost my mind:) Avery had a Jog-A-Thon at school on her birthday. At first she was upset because she wanted to wear her new skirt. She quickly recovered when she realized they get Popsicles at the Jog-A Thon.  Here she is at her Jog-A-Thon.
So cute:)
However, I have still been feeling under the weather so I had a lot of tests done this week. Too much time at the doctor's office is a drag. But, I am finally on some medicine and feeling better. I am a mom and you know us moms, we don't have time to feel bad;)
Then, to cap off the week, my lovely Mom who has been such a fighter took a tumble at home and hurt her knee pretty bad. She was in bad shape for a couple days. She is doing better now. Thank GOD!!!!Can't she just have some peace??? This is when I start to question everything.. 
Do you ever ask those questions????
So that is a little ride on my roller coaster of a week. 
Next week and the week after my blogging will be scarce. I have college friend coming to town to go to a concert with me. Yeah.. hope to feel 100% . Then we have Open House, Baseball, Minimum days, Finals etc. It's going to be a whirlwind and then we begin Spring Break. A break is what we all need. Time to breathe and relax. It is coming at the perfect time. 
Here is a peek at Avery's room. Sorry about the quality, it was taken on my iPhone

I will be showing up a guest blogger this week. I will let you know when and where when I know the date. Looking forward to it.

I hope you all have a wonderful week. Love reading all your comments. 
Hoping for some smooth sailing......

  11. Hi Cheryl,
    I'm so sorry it's been such a rough week. I understand the feeling of when is it enough. When the challenges of life seem too heavy to bear I try to take one day at a time, remembering that God is in control of all things even when it doesn't seem so.
    Your daughter is adorable and I'm sure a delight to you. Hope you feel better soon!

    My granddaughter had a bedroom makeover for her Christmas. She is 8 almost 9 and wanted a Huskie (dog) room. Her room is now gray with black touches. She has lots of little Huskie doggies on the beds. So a neat idea.
