and then the blue bird of happiness came!

from patti 1
last night was a sucky evening... just a wee bit stressful, nothing serious.  Here.. I'll cut and paste what I wrote on face book...just to give you a good idea of how awesome it was to then find this freak'n sweet  package on my porch!  
 "what a screwed up evening.. stopped at the grocery store to get some lowfat cottage cheese, but picked up a WW watchers magazine and saw this fritata recipe, looked so good, I bought all the ingredients and headed home to make it.. beth called and asked me to watch torry while she got her hair done, so I turned around to go get him, then almost ran out of gas. Once home, he was so grumpy, tired and hungry I was trying to find him something to eat. He fell off the kitchen chair Hard on the side of his face and head... broke my heart.. I spilled grape juice.. made a mess making the fritata (how the heck do you spell that?) dropped a bunch of it on the floor while trying to get it out of the pan. It looked disgusting.. ... was hoping it would be ok... when I finally would get to eat it. in the mean time I made torry some scrambled eggs, which he proceeded to throw or drop on the floor.. after he left I tried my egg thing.. and it was disgusting. I threw the whole thing away. cleaned up the huge messes in the kitchen and ate watermelon, cottage cheese and half a grapefruit.. took two tylenol and now Im sitting her complaining! LOL.... its all good though.. now if the headache would just go away..."

Of course things calmed down afterwords and I went to bed early.. but I have to admit I was pretty shaken up by Torrys fall... I keep getting a sick feeling and my tummy still rolls every time I play it back in my mind.   And I was pretty ticked that I bought and wasted all the stuff to make that gross fritata....   but oh well.. life goes on, today is a new day.. and I have the sweetest little mushroom bird nest made for me by paintin Patti!!    I LOVE this patti.  thank you so much!
I hope everyone that participated has received their nests by now.  Ive had a lot of fun playing with nests this spring... wait.. did I say spring????   I think mother nature is very very confused...  there is frost out there this morning..  it snowed on mothers day!  what the heck is going on?  
I have to weigh in today and I need to wear very light weight springy clothes..  this weather aint work'n for that!  lol!
wish me luck on the scales.. If I could weigh in right now, Id be down two pounds...  maybe I should not eat today! lol.
have a happy day my friends!

I'm sorry yesterday was so stressful. It's a good thing Patti knew perfect timing with her nest. Today looks like another winter jacket bus stop morning. Come on spring!

Well, that little gift was a blessing to bring you some smiles:) Happy that your little Torriepie wasn't hurt! Have a blessed (and lost weight) kinda day! HUGS!

It sounds like you had some evening, Vivian. Luckily, I'm sure they don't happen very often. We all get them. Glad Torry was okay. They can really scare you when they fall. Good luck on your weigh in. I feel like I must have gained a couple of pounds from Mother's Day and it's not that we had a lot of food, but what that food was!

I was shopping once when a little baby boy fell out of a shopping cart near me........the sound still echo's in my head. He recovered fine, but that sound.....aaaaaagh, one of a mother's worst nightmares! Torry-pie is gonna be just fine girlfriend, and probably will have learned a lesson about not wobbling around in the chair....;o) Life's lessons are never fun.

Hugs,
Meri

What a pretty bluebird...so glad it brought you some happiness after an evening like that!
I think once something bad happens, things just go downhill from there and we need to "reset" to get back to normal. I hope today is normal for you and you also do well for your weigh-in.

I'm glad you like your bluebird! I thought it would never arrive on your doorstep, but I'm glad it came in one piece. You cheer everyone up with your fun blog and happy ways - so, I'm glad this little bluebird made you smile. And, I am very happy that you were my swap partner, too!

So sorry that all that happened. Hope Torrie Pie is doing okay. It does make you sick when they get hurt like that. Love your nest. Thanks for hosting this swap. It was fun. Everyone did something different. So cute.

Hoping today is better, the bluebird is so cute and matches the card. Good luck on the scales my weigh day is tomorrow and I always wish I could go first thing instead of waiting til the evening when I am at least 4lbs heavier. Fingers crossed ... Sarah x
