In spite of everything, it's a Feel Good Friday!



To break the negative vibe that I think I've given my blog here lately, I'm participating in Feel Good Friday, hosted by The Girl Next Door Grows Up!  Please send a few prayers her way...she's down in her back, but her sweet hubby offered to type her post today while she dictated!

The past couple of weeks have had their ups and downs for me...I know I've shared a lot of them with you.  I try to find the tiniest blessings in everything...but, I'll admit...I haven't tried real hard.  I think that participating in this meme really helps me to refocus that and that's one reason I'm determined to get back in the swing of things!  If I don't reflect daily on the goodness in my life, at least I'll be forced to here!

With all that being said...here are 5 things that made me feel good this week!

1 - My super helpful kid vacuumed up water for hours yesterday...you would never know it from looking at his room, but he's a little bit of a perfectionist.  So...a job like vacuuming up water from our carpet is GREAT for him because he will work at it until it's as close to being gone as possible.  I'm so thankful that he volunteered to do this for me yesterday while I came to work.

2 - I shared with you yesterday about my special treat that my BFF's hubby brought me since I was having a bad day...if you missed it, you can check it out here!

3 - This picture made me laugh...
My niece is wearing a dirt bike helmet while playing MarioKart...need I say more?

4 - Went to the doctor about my ankle today...he doesn't think it's anything serious...especially since I don't have trouble with putting weight on it.  Most likely I've strained a tendon/ligament/muscle/etc. and the swelling and irritation will go away thanks to the anti-inflammatory he prescribed.  I didn't even have to get an x-ray...which was good, since I'd already waited an hour to get in through the walk-in clinic.  I'm supposed to ice it, rest it and wear supportive shoes (aka sneakers) when I'm going to be on it a lot.  Not sure how that's going to work out...see #5! :)

5 - I have a very busy, very fun weekend planned.  Tonight our church is hosting a Booth Brothers concert.  I'm not familiar with their music (they are considered Southern Gospel and I tend to lean towards the Contemporary Christian genre)...but I am working as a ticket tearer.  With Ashley...so we will have fun.  Even if my ankle is the size of a football when I'm done!  Then on Saturday, we are having a Back to School Bash for our children at church, which is going to be so much fun.  And Saturday night, I will be going to Bowman Gray for some racin'.  I'm not that big of a race fan...but it's fun.  And it's $1 ladies night! :)  Then...Sunday, the Youth have a pool party!  Somewhere in all that, I have to rent a steam cleaner for my carpet in the living room and put all the furniture back.  That may not happen until sometime next week...but it's in the back of my mind, none the less!

So, all in all...it IS a Feel Good Friday! 

Hope you have a good weekend too!
