Such a Busy Life Lately

It's been such a busy life lately. School starting and all the back-to-school paperwork and events; it kind of makes my head swirl a little bit. I'm getting dizzy just thinking about it!


I thought I'd share just a few Instagram posts with you on this fabulous Friday. A quick update, because I still haven't gotten fully back into the blogging groove yet. And I try to keep updated with my instagram and twitter accounts, even if I'm not always in the blogging scene completely.

So here we go...

Late last week, just as the older kids were starting school, Baby Girl got sick and had to have two breathing treatments at her doctor's appointment. She calls the mask her Ninja Turtle Mask. We were sent home with a nebulizer and more medication. But after a few more treatments and lots of rest, she was up and around like nothing even phased her.

On the way to the doc's office, she was having such a hard time breathing and was so sad in the car. But then this song came on, and she tried to sing along, even with all her wheezing. Music really is healing sometimes.

We also painted her nails and toenails her favorite color later when she was feeling better. Yep, it's that bright pink that you see pictured up there. But this particular polish is color-changing. It changes to purple in the sunlight.

Our minivan went into the shop this week for a couple of days. We had to get some warranty work done before we hit the magic number of 100k miles! We made it just in time.

Spicy Fried Rice is one of the kids' favorites, and we hadn't had it in a really long time. So I made some on the day that I attended Senior Parent Info Night, where I learned all about how I'll be paying for the many senior events scheduled throughout the school year...At least they offer a payment plan!

And the last IG snippet shown up there is a fabulous piece of yellow wall art that I admired since I first saw it midweek. I really want to hang one of those on my wall now. I just love the message. You know me, I'm always up for some inspiration. ;)

I'm glad it's Friday. Fridays are just always good days, for the most part. I look forward to a weekend of relaxation and unplugging from cyberworld again, because I'll be going through bags and bags of things for a yard sale and/or donation pick up. And there's A LOT to go through. Piles in my living room and the master bedroom. Seriously. It's like Spring Cleaning all over again. =0)

What are you looking forward to this weekend?

That's a crazy start. How's your little girl? Does she have asthma or environmental allergies? I have a full week more with the kids though so I'll be enjoying every minute of it. Have a relaxing weekend.

Oh, nice to hear that she is feeling good now, it must be really hard to manage everything, but that's life!
Have a nice weekend:)

awww, I'm sorry that baby girl was sick. not being able to breath is scary. our daughter had that problem last summer, but it was due to playing/cleaning in the chicken coop.

I hope your sweet girl is feeling better! I'm already stressed about everything that goes along with getting kids ready for school and I still have several years. Ha!

Aw I hope she feels better Kim! Or is better already. Trips to the doctor or hospital always suck for better lack of word.
