One Of Those Days

Yesterday was one of those days around the Watson home. You know exactly what I'm talking about.

One of those days where your husband pulls a muscle in his back and is sent home from the doctor on bed rest.

One of those days you drop your housework, bail on the diet and sit around watching movies and eating fast food so that your husband feels loved.

It was one of those days where your 80 lb dog decides to sleep on your injured husband's chest.

One of those days when you do 30 loads of laundry and still can't find the pants you need.

One of those days where you pull a "dry clean only" shirt out of the wash...oops!

It was one of those days were it takes an act of Congress to cook a meal.

One of those days were your son dumps a bag of cheese on the kitchen chair just as you finish cleaning up from dinner.

One those days that your playroom looks like this and you could care less.
Yesterday was one of those days that is quite literally insanely normal.

One of those days where I praise God for a man to nurse back to health.

One of those days where I praise God for having too much food instead of not enough.

One of those days where I praise God for the laughter found in an 80 lb dog.

One of those days where I praise God for clothes to wear even if it means extra laundry.

One of those days where I praise God for a happy, healthy little boy even if he does slow me down and make messes.

One of those days where I praise God for a home to mess up and enough spaces to even have a playroom.

It was one of those days that the blessings of my life far outweigh the stresses, one of the days I praise God for the chaos, and the joy it brings into our home.

Yeah, it was one of those days!!
