Coming Clean

via little black book

Hi all of you happy campers! I know I have been MIA lately and I think it's about time I came clean. 

A lot has happened within the past couple of weeks. Last week alone tested every fiber of my being. I am happy to say that my head did not explode from all the stress. 

We got some bad health news over at Casa dePedersen. My sweet grumpy OMP is having some health problems that will require surgery. I can't go into too many details at the moment but it's pretty serious and we both are kind of scared but also know that it's for the best. 

As if that wasn't bad enough, last week my father's wife had a major stroke. The doctors did an amazing job and removed the clot. 

Still not enough for you....I was exposed to whooping cough via my boss. 

Ready for more? Our A/C, microwave went out and Pete peed on my yeah, last week was the sucking suck suck that ever sucked.  The only thing missing was the rain cloud over my head.

Which brings us to this week. I don't have whooping cough, our A/C is working again, we got a new microwave and my dad's wife is on the mend and doing excellent. OMP is not out of the woods yet, but we have a game plan for his surgery and Pete...well, Pete is...Pete.

I might not be around as much as I like but I will definitely keep everyone updated, keep bringing you crafty projects and cocktails and of course, pictures of cute animals. My only request is that you stick it out with me, send us some healing happy vibes and stay awesome! 

Love you guys mucho!

I'm so sorry things have been rotten for you recently. I think times like these are a test of our fortitude, but it sure would be great if we didn't have these tests at all. It isn't always necessary to put on a happy face. When I have done that in the face of difficult challenges, I've looked back and realized that I should have asked for more help and support. I hope the surgery goes well. I'll be thinking of you, and thanks for sharing.

Maybe it's in the air, I have also had a tough time the past few weeks. I hope yours gets better as soon as possible!
