Time for "The Talk"

You know "the talk,"
the one  you give yourself
when you're trying to accomplish something
that you pretty much think
is impossible at this point.

In the football world,
it would definitely qualify
as a Hail Mary. 

Usually Matt is around for the talk,
adding some encouragement.
Lucky for him the 
lawn is calling.

I am afraid to list these things
because I don't want a list I can add to

This week has been crazy busy.

{BTW, I am not a big fan of the word
it's a relative term,
we are all busy, so please excuse me!}

The boys are sick.
Tomorrow's forecast calls for storms.
I was in the ER.
Liam had his long-awaited appointment with his neurologist yesterday.
E started a bunch of extras this week,
{which he loves, not a bad thing just consuming!},
My idea for the boys' birthday yesterday did not go as planned,
due to numero uno mentioned.

I was making Pioneer Woman's Spicy Dr. Pepper pork
at an hour when pork should not be made.
I don't even eat pork,
please do not 
put me through the ringer
via Oprah's cattle battle.

OK, who I am I kidding, 
no one cares about me
not eating pork.
I don't eat red meat either.

Now look what I started!

{major tangent}

I could go on.
{couldn't we all?}

So, here's the best advice
I can give myself today...

Really now. 

I am just grateful 
that while at the point of 
freaking out

I know none of this really matters,
seriously I am not just blowing sunshine.

Yes, I will still get frazzled.
I will be running errands hoping 
I do not run into anyone.
Time for shower yes.
Time for hair and makeup,
heck no!

So whatever you're planning this weekend,
I am sending some good thoughts your way.
I will be saying some Hail Marys myself.
And I hope everything turns out as you hoped.

If it doesn't, I hope you 
enjoyed it anyway!!

Happy Friday!!



  1. i am sure the party will be awesome, no matter what because you are all together and celebrating a joyus miracle :)

    have a great friday and weekend!!

  2. You always get things done, Shell. You and I are a lot a like. We get stressed, and worried, but in the end, everything just works out. Tomorrow will be terrific!!

  3. What a sweet poster. Hail Marys are awesome! Everything is gonna be alright, I am sure.

  4. Hang in there! Everything will be perfect in it's own way even if it wasn't just the way you envisioned it.

  5. I think maybe it's good for me to hear sometimes that even amazing women such as yourself get frazzled sometimes. I definitely know how you feel, but you do so much! Love the quote because I am positive it's all going to turn out amazing!


I so appreciate your sweet thoughts and thank you for sharing. I always try to reply whether it be to your email or on one of your blog posts! Wishing you a wonder*filled day! Michelle
