Despite Your Best Intentions...
This has been a crazy week! I feel bad when I don't post on my regular schedule, but I have to allow myself grace and move on.
I usually don't plan my posts in advance, so on Sunday nights, Tuesday nights and Thursday nights I sit down and write whatever comes to mind. Sometimes I mull a post over for a few days, hoping to get it just right. Occasionally, I write a bunch of posts in advance and schedule them to publish at the right time (if I know I'm going to be out of town, or something else will be taking place to distract me). But, usually, I write my posts the night before.
Then there are those days (and weeks) when, despite my best intentions, I just can't put up a blog post because of unforeseen circumstances.
This week I was able to post before and after pictures of our basement remodel on Monday, but Tuesday was crazy and I crashed on Tuesday night without thinking about my blog for Wednesday!
Last night, I was ready to go. I was going to write my blog post for today and be very clever. ;)
But then my husband came hobbling into the house after basketball...with a significantly sprained ankle...and all my plans for this blog went out the door.
I feel so bad for him. His ankle is swollen and he didn't sleep last night from the pain. This morning his dad is going to take a look at it to make sure it's not broken (his dad is an orthopedic surgeon).
The trouble is, today he and I had a big date planned. We had a babysitter all lined up and he was taking me shopping and out to dinner. I think we can still go eat, which I'm thankful for, but we probably won't get any shopping done.
But, there's always a silver lining - and it's the fact that at this time last year he was busy working. As a landscaper, you learn how to make hay when the sun is shining. It's a good thing we still have about three feet of snow out there - and it's not melting anytime soon. It's also a good thing that our basement remodel was finished last week! At least Dave can keep his ankle up and not have to worry about missing anything important.
What about you? What kind of a week have you had? Any fun plans for the weekend?
