Celebrate the Small Things-January 30, 2015



It's Friday!  Let's Celebrate the Small Things with Lexa Cain!  I'm a proud co-host for this weekly blogging event, along with the always cool TheCyborgMom.

It's been a crazy week here.  I learned that calling the IRS in an attempt to have a simple question answered is the most aggravating thing this family has ever had to deal with, but the question was answered.  At least we came through that mini ordeal with the answer we needed.

The refund check from the post office did finally come in.  Yes!  I am so relieved that issue is finally resolved.  I can't begin to tell you what a relief that is.

I also have some rather big news.  I'd wondered whether I should share it now or wait for a bit, but I'm not good at keeping certain things to myself.  I just found out this week that I'm having a baby.  Sometime in late September, only a couple of weeks before my birthday, I'll be a mother of three.  My kids are happy, as is my husband, but of the three of them, my son Jude is the most excited about the news.  He went to school and told all his teachers and friends.  Apparently there was no keeping it a secret here, even if I had wanted to.  Jude would never have allowed it.

And finally, I'd like to celebrate laughter.  This short little video made me laugh, and I thought it might do the same for you.



What would you like to celebrate?

  6. This is the husband, who just so happens to not have a Google+ account. I just want to take a minute to thank you Laura for being here with us through this very interesting week. You are always there for me and this family. Everything from making daily trips to the Post Office. Too sitting next too me for hours while I try to get a hold of the IRS. Too carrying each of our soon too be three children. You are the most interesting and wonderful person I have ever met. I love you and I am very grateful for everything you are too me and our kids. I also can't wait to read about my terrible grammar.
