When Life Hands You Lemons...

I went to the Dr. yesterday to get my leg looked at and he said I have to stay off of it for 2 weeks! Ughh...

To make myself feel better, I decided to make a list of reasons why 2 weeks stuck at home isn't a bad thing:

More potty training!
Perhaps I can get Little Miss to understand the difference between "big girl panties" and diapers. She has no accidents when I let her run around bare bottomed, but as soon as we put on the panties she wets them. Now I have lots of time at home to work on this.

More crafting!
I can make more bows and more wreaths and perhaps make a pillowcase dress for Little Miss. Except today I ran out of hot glue, oops.

I can finally start reading The Hunger Games on my Kindle!
I haven't had the chance to sit down and read them yet, now I have no excuse not to.

I can catch up on trashy reality shows!
Today my TV stayed on Bravo, so I caught up on RHOC, RHATL, and Shahs of Sunset. 

Lots of quality time with Little Miss!
The past few days have been rough for her, she realized that Daddy isn't coming home for a long time. Last night on the car ride home from the Dr., she tells me, "Mommy I miss my Daddy.". I turn around to tell her how much Daddy misses her, only to see tears rolling down her little cheeks. It broke my heart to see her crying. I am frustrated because I don't know how to make her understand and I am pretty sure that she is too young to understand time. All I can do is assure her that Daddy loves her and misses her, that he will be home eventually, and show her lots of pictures. 

My triceps are going to look awesome after being on crutches for 2 weeks!

I can get really creative with my care packages!
Time to get my Pinterest on to find out some cool themes for care packages. I wonder if Hubs appreciates them as much as I like making them...

I guess I could cook some more and post a few recipes for you guys, I haven't done that in a while either.

So I am going to try my hardest to focus on the positive here. Its only 2 weeks and it could definitely be worse! 


  1. If you want a major craft you could make me a new bed set for law school?!?! haha since every time I go to buy one I like online they are sold out! PS you can also have me and Laura over one night and wine?! eh eh? In all honesty I hope you're feeling better soon!


    1. Oooh a pizza and wine night sounds great, as long as you all don't mind a toddler hanging out with us :P

  2. I love your attitude and I'm so loving those stylish crutches.

    1. Thanks! The tag on the pouch from my crutches says they are made by Lemonaid Crutches, definitely worth looking into if you end up being on crutches for a while!

  3. The part about Kailyn missing daddy made me tear up. It's hard. I give you so much credit for always seeing the positive in things!!

    1. Thanks, it really is hard explaining to kids what is going on they just don't totally understand yet!
