Last week I was feeling frustrated at my messy house, disheveled hair and late utilities bill. I am usually much more organized than this. This weekend put things into perspective.
On Sunday morning I took Brent to the ER, he was having a lot of pain. Turns out it was a complication from a surgery he had as an infant. He was in the hospital for 2 days/1night. I ran back and forth between home and the hospital so I could feed Brooks and get updates on Brent. We were worried he would need surgery, but thankfully he was able to come home Monday night.

I am grateful for all of the friends and family who helped us out for those two days. I do not know how single moms do it. It was a crazy couple of days. Brent seems to have made a full recovery. He feels great.
Today we spent a perfect afternoon laying on the lawn. Brent studied for his MCAT, I did some work on my computer and Brooks napped. My house was still a mess, my hair was still disheveled, and the utilities bill was overdue... but we are loving life.
