Today I'm just going to talk about the good things in life. This morning I found it ironic that on my way to work with my friend Becky, who was nice enough to give me a ride again, we got pulled over, but it worked out just fine. I was feeling a little bit like the sky was falling, but it's turns out it's not. You can find out more about our morning here.
I finally got my rental car this afternoon. I couldn't get it last night because I didn't have my driver's license. The police officer gave it to my husband on Monday after the accident and he forgot give it back to me. It worked out for the best because I got a pretty cool car. It's a Ford Escape Hybrid. It has satellite radio which is really cool and it get really good gas mileage for a SUV. It's normally a very expensive rental, but since it was the only car left at the rental place, I got it really cheap. YAY ME! Things are looking up! I must admit I'm a little apprehensive to drive home tonight in traffic, but I'm sure everything will be fine. I drove last night, but I didn't go very far and it wasn't in rush hour traffic. I must admit that I'm feeling pretty decent considering that someone plowed into me 3 days ago, but I'm still pretty sore and my right elbow is bugging me a bit. I think I'll make an appointment with my doctor just to be on the safe side.
My hubby has been great through all of this. Between me being sick and then the accident, he has really stepped up to take care of stuff that I would normally do. So I want to publicly thank him and let all my bloggy friends know how much I love him and how great I think he is. I don't always tell him that so I wanted to make sure I put it in writing. I appreciate everything he does for me even though I don't always show it.
And now just for kicks I wanted to show off my adorable children. I haven't written much about them lately. I've been a little self absorbed with all the stuff that's been going on so I thought I'd show off some cute pics. The princess has her first band performance during an assembly at school tomorrow. I'm so proud of her. She really enjoys playing the clarinet and she's pretty good. I enjoy listening to her practice and hope that she will continue with band in the years to come.
The first one if of the ruler. He takes his coloring very seriously. When he's not using the coloring book, he is under the table creating art on the kitchen tile. One of these days I'll take a picture of one of his masterpieces. Thank goodness for washable crayons. The next is the queen and her friend Violet on Halloween. The queen was a zombie doctor and Violet was a zombie cheerleader. The last picture is of the princess. We went to a roller skating party a couple of weeks ago and this is her out on the rink. She thinks she's hot stuff and well, she's right.
I hope everyone else is having a great Thursday. When I get home from work I'm going to cook a 20lb. turkey for our Thanksgiving potluck at work tomorrow. I can't believe it's only a week away.
Thanks to everyone for all your comments and prayers. I know that I've been complaining a lot lately and I appreciate your tolerance. I am going to spend the next we focusing on what I'm grateful for. One thing I do know is that I have a lot of things to be grateful for and I need to start remembering what they are.
