I promise this is my last depressing/vent post for a while.
But seriously last week could not have gone any worse.
First the blown tire. I spent the one day I had to get caught up on all my homework shopping around for tires and found out it's going to cost A LOT of money (which I don't have)
Then I had to go babysit 5 kids for 5 days. That was rough. There were many freak outs and MANY tears shed throughout the week (from both the kids and myself)
Here's just a sample of the events that took place:
- cabinet door snapped in half
- a bathroom flooded
- a mug broke
- one of the kids didn't come to church. he just didn't want to
- food was EVERYWHERE after every meal. the house would just get trashed all the time
- bath time always brought on tears
- one of the girls
cried SCREAMED for 45 minutes straight and we couldn't get her to stop.
- Oh and she was naked, too.
- the baby had the nastiest diarrhea for like 3 days. blehhhh
and in addition to that. . I had the most violent stomach flu and puked 12 times while taking care of the kids. (TMI? Sorry. . kinda)
I'm not trying to be dramatic, but it was one of the most challenging/straining weeks of my life.
Today at church I was just bawling my head off in Relief Society. I was completely and emotionally drained and super stressed out. On my way out to my car after church, I cried to 5 different people haha it was pretty embarrassing. People kept asking me how it was going with the kids and I'd start crying my face off again!
It was a disaster.
But then I found this in an old bag I started using again . .
A little note from my favorite boy on the top of an old shopping list from last year! I know he wrote it forever ago but it was just what I needed. I just pretended that he flew from Japan to slip it in my bag haha. It was a perfect little surprise.
It's crazy how the simplest things can completely change your whole day.
