Around 1:30 this morning I came to terms with just not getting a treasured Parents Day Out today. He was hot to touch from head to toe and frankly the way his eyes looked scared me enough to pray myself to sleep. Carter spiked a fever on Thursday & still has it today in spite of days of lounging around & watching Piglet's Big Movie on repeat.

Yesterday's Love Dare lesson challenged me to spend time in the Appreciation Room instead of lingering in the Depreciation room. A challenge that easily spills over into situations like these. For me, its the small things that snag me and set me off on the path to Grumpytown. So, no I don't get to partake in my Monday Step class at the gym, and I don't get to leisurely browse through the endcaps at Target & the bargain-packed aisles of TJMaxx today. But I'm going to choose to focus on the silver-lining....ummm...I'll get back to you once I discover a great one! I mean besides being grateful that this is just a cold & that I don't have to call into some job & feel guilty all day.

And yes, I realize this entry sounds completely selfish. I mean, Carter is the one to feel bad for in this situation. He pathetically tried convincing me that he isn't sick anymore so he can go to Miss Susan's class-dripping nose & congested cough included. Sorry, little pal..its you and me and Lilah today. I think Keva Juice is in order.
