A perfect day with Andrew

The day started off early with just me and Andrew. It was so nice not to have any place to be, and we were just laying around before it was time for breakfast

I started with eggs, peppers, bacon, 2 sausage links, and blueberries

P1070924(I know that I have to start the day on a good foot)

The rest of the day included running to Target, and cleaning the house!

Andrew and I tackled his desk and a few closets! (I got rid of so much junk!)


Then it was lunch and off to a swim party for Andrew’s friend!


yep, I had lunch with superman 🙂

Andrew went to the party, and I headed to the gym! I need some sweat and to de-stress. It definitely helped!

Then we went to dinner with my mom and nephew, and we went for a walk


The neighbors were having a party, with a band! So we went exploring….


It really was a great Saturday, just me and Andrew 🙂
Question for you:

How do you de-stress?

How was your Saturday?

All girls need flowers

I feel like I have a BILLION updates. It has just been one of those weekends and it has dragged onto Monday haha

My tooth is feeling a million times better, and I don’t look like a chipmunk (as much…… haha)

 I was able to make it to work this weekend, unfortuantly, I didn’t have the best day. On Sunday, I actually had a family become very upset and yell at me for something that didn’t even happen on my shift. The baby was also not stable.

But today is where the most action occurred. I only worked a 1/2 shift, because I had to take Andrew to the allergist. But during those 6 hours, I was yelled at by the same family again. Cried during rounds to the medical team. And had a family meeting w/ this family. I didn’t even start charting till11!!! I didn’t eat the whole time I was there……. Being that this happened two days in a row, I am emotionally spent.

Luckily, I was able to get out of there on time to meet Andrew and his dad for his appointment. Since Andrew has had MANY ear infections, and strep throat cases we are seeing the allergist and the ENT specialists. Today, he had his allergy tests.

It actually went really well. We found he was only allergic to a certain mold and ragweed. And who isn’t here in st louis???? But now, we have to wonder what is causing all these infections

I also found another mouse in the basement.   why was I in the basement you ask? I was having a little cry session while cleaning. haha

Instead of eating A TON of ice cream and crying my eyes out, I cleaned and then found some amazing roses in my backyard.

I even told my dad I hate rose bushes (which I do) but they are so beautiful!

I had to pick some and bring them in the kitchen. See the huge one on the right!!!!

We then went on a walk. It is amazing what flowers and a walk can do  🙂

I am hoping for a tearfree pleasant Tuesday!!

Question for you:

Have you ever had allergy tested? Are you allergic to anything?

-I am not allergic to a thing. I am lucky, especically since everyone in St Louis seems to have issues

Have you ever had one of those days at work?

Cure for today, a walk

Today was a rollercoaster.

Good: New pancake recipe

Bad: meeting at 10am

Good: Subway while eating at Suson Park


Andrew needed to get out of the car haha. And he had a blast there

Bad: running errands before 1pm doctors appointment, my car looked like a bomb went off

Good: Around this liscense plate, it said “Happiness is being Irish” (and I was stopped at a light, NOT driving)

Double Bad: why are we going to the doctor? Well Andrew is still not feeling well. And the antibiotics (from the last visit!!) were finished today.Well there is still fluid on his ear. So we are now on a different antibiotic, and we get to go visit the nice people at the ENT office and the allergist office. Isn’t that nice……..

Good: I headed to the gym. Andrew was going to hang out w/ his dad. It was exactly what I needed. I had a few tears this morning

Well then it was all good after that. It ended w/ taking a walk with Andrew.

(sorry its blurry)

Who has a walking to stick to walk around the city haha

But he is so cute and pretty much just uses it as a sword/gun/other toy haha

We stayed out till the moon came out!


Question for you:

What was something that happened to you that was Good or Bad?


Andrew and I are going out of town, and I was wondering if anyone wanted to do a guest post.

 I would love it if you do, otherwise I will have some recipes to share, and other odds and ends 🙂
