When It All Goes Downhill

Eye drops. Antibiotics. Cough Suppressants. You name it, we probably have it in-stock here in our kitchen's mini-pharmacy. These last few weeks have been nothing short of miserable.
In late December, just before the Christmas holiday, we all came down with a nasty bug. We finally thought we were all in the clear. after about a week. I then made a chipper update on the Facebook page & had super high hopes of catching back up before Christmas Eve.
Yep, I think that's the exact moment where I jinxed myself.
As soon as we thought we were better, a whole new set of ailments slammed us. I'll spare you the gory details. But it completely ruined almost the entire 2.5 weeks of vacation my husband was able to spend at home. I didn't even get 1/2 of the work done I'd planned on tackling. We were never able to finish all of our Christmas shopping. And all of those holiday treat deliveries I'd planned on taking to my wonderful doctors/nurses from 2015? Yep, I never even had a chance to do a single bit of baking.
The worst of it all was seeing my kids sick - and still seeing them sick, as my son continues to have remnant reactions to a newly-discovered Amoxicillin allergy. We have benadryl and cortisone on-hand for the random outbreaks of hives. They come on so quickly and so intensely, it makes me want to cry. Oh yeah, he also had to miss his first week ever (this week) of preschool. When do the hits stop coming? This sweet little man just CAN'T catch a break, I tell you. I think it's safe to say (and my husband would absolutely agree) he has inherited his momma's perpetual bad luck. =(
Please, Lord...let things start looking up soon. At least we have a new house to look forward to in 2 months, right? (We haven't even been out to see the progress in a couple of weeks, if that tells you anything about how life has been going lately!)
Clients, this month is going to be just as wild/crazy as the last & I promise you I'm trying my absolute darndest to get ahead of it quickly. Each and every one of you is a priority & I so appreciate your patience. Your kindness, grace and understanding keeps my spirits up. I'm knee-deep in emails and am responding as quickly as possible. Please do bare with me for just a tad longer!
...and in an attempt to keep the morale up around here, my husband brought home flowers. Isn't he just the sweetest?
I’m a country girl, small business owner, wife, mother of three, and a proud alumna of Purdue University (Boiler Up!).
Wondering what life is like for a busy mom with a graphic design & laser cutting business? My days are filled with pretty paper, blissful brides, half-finished sketchbooks, half-eaten lunches, and lots of cuddling with my little ones. I look forward to sharing with you all of life's fun happenings (both in & out of the studio) here on the blog!
