What's up Weekend? 6•28•19

Hello Friday! This Summer is flying by and I'm trying to hold on for dear life here.  Yesterday was spent at the pool.  Mostly pulling kids around the water and having a blast.  I embrace my inner child on all days but one pool days, it is on!  I did manage to sit and relax a little too. It was nice.

And now its Friday and officially the weekend! And its time I get back to sharing my happiness.  Last week David and I were in the car and he asked me if I had posted my Friday post.  I told him that I wanted to but my heart was still sad and I was struggling to find any good in the week.  I also told him that I knew there was good there, but I just didn't want to look for it.  Even though I knew it would make me feel better.  I ended up not posting.  And kicking myself in the but for it.  So now its that day again and here I am.  Finding the good in a week that still feels so off.

Today I'm linking up with Lindsay from The Flynnigans, Charlotte from My Pixie Blog and Beth from Coffee until Cocktails.  Every Friday we share all the things that we are happy, grateful and thankful for!  Stop on over and see what everyone else is sharing today! Here is my list for this week

Everyone was still feeling pretty down last weekend, so we opted for a quiet and calm weekend.  As much as I love going out and exploring, a few days at home is always nice too. 

Easy cooking weeks are amazing.  This week, I kept it simple and I mean simple.  I'm talking pre seasoned taco meat kinda simple.  The turkey in the spaghetti ended up tasting a little off, so leftover night was cancelled.  And tomorrow they are having frozen pizzas.  Totally slacking but loving it.  Don't judge me!

Salmon.  Yup, salmon made me happy this week.  With all its deliciousness.  It is literally what has gotten me though this week.  The boys always pass when I offer them some.  They will eat it if I serve it for dinner but if they have another option they take it.  Or they used to.  Yesterday when I came back from the pool, Anthony asked me if we could have salmon for lunch today.  Part of me is happy he is liking it, the other part of me is small kind stingy with my fish!  I kid.  Ill share.

Swimming. There is something about the water that washes everything away.  The stress, the pain, the sadness...gone.  I'm a little pink and a lot darker, but my soul feels refreshed for sure.

Nephew #2 joined the Navy.   The oldest is already a few years into the Navy and is headed overseas in a few days.  So proud of those boys.  They both are crazy smart and just all around great kids.  Go Navy!

Speaking of nephews, a talk with #1 about how much I miss taking photos with my actual camera has me feeling like I need to get back to taking more photos.  I have less than 10 photos on my phone from this week.  And if you know me, that's very unlike me.  Want to know how many photos I took with my nice, new camera?  1. He said he remembered me being the one who was always taking pictures.  I will get back there again.

I'm super thankful this week that for the most part we have been able to keep Poncho comfortable.  Its starting to get a little harder and I have had to increase his meds.  As much as I don't want to let go, I know his time left with us wont be long.  And if I have to move the house and patio around to make it easier for him, I am happy to do so.  We so cherish the time we have left with him.

I talked to Anthonys Endocrinologist who had a few things to say about his latest tests.  But long story short, we will be starting growth hormone injections soon and will be watching him like a hawk for any of the complications that could arise.  No matter how many times she told me they were not likely, I know how my luck goes, so, I may get a little crazy mama bear for a little bit.

Rain.  We have had what feels like an unusual amount of rain this week.  One storm had me running out in the rain to chase down my trash can that was blowing down the street!   But my grass is green and my flowers are blooming and the air with its "rain smell!"  I just love rain.  It even rained while we were swimming yesterday and reminded me of all our rainy boat trips when I was a kid.  They were always my favorite too.

And the best part of my week would be this one.  This quick photo holds my heart.  My family, our home and our dog.  I was lounging in the hammock, enjoying the warmth and crackling of the fire and listening to the guys laughing.  I wish every night could be this great.  I'm glad I snapped this picture.

Would you look at that!  I knew there were happy bits in there somewhere!  They may not be big grand moments but they each made my week that much brighter and that's what this link up is about.

So tell me.  What made you smile this week?  What made you happy?  Id love to hear about it.
