Saturday morning I work up with a headache. Not just your garden variety headache, but a full-blown, can't-hardly-get-my-head-off-the-pillow headache. My allergies have completely run a muck. I heard the fam up and moving around, and a couple of minutes later, I heard a ruckus in the hallway outside my door. Just as I was getting ready to request peace and quiet, the kids and hubby came in carrying a plate with hot, buttered waffles, and another holding hot, buttery poptarts (see a butter theme here?)! That, and a large glass of iced diet Mt. Dew! Yum! Then I got to open a letter from my daughter, thanking me for working so hard, and for "feeding them every day"! Gotta love kids and their priorities! It was the nicest surprise I've had in a really long time, and it made me so proud of my kids! After the initial feeling of love and pride, I immediately wondered if they knew something I didn't--had they broken something beyond repair? Was I dying? But no, they are just great kids (and a great husband, too!)! Then, I got up, headache and all, and we went to garage sales--my favorite Saturday morning activity! We found a couple of great games, books, and my son found a very large, heavy pillar for his room--don't ask. I also found a cute "coffee box" for my kitchen. I'm not sure what I did to warrant such great blessings, but I am very, very thankful for each and every one! I hope you and your families had a great, restful weekend, and here's to a productive week ahead!

By the way, you may have seen the new button at the top of my blog--it's the coolest site! It's called The Secret's In the Sauce, and they help bloggers meet other bloggers out in cyberland! If you click on it, you can see all kinds of fun blogs to read. I've also added the "give a free mamogram" button in honor of a high school friend who recently lost his very young wife to breast cancer.

WooHoo LeRoy! I always knew he had it in him! I have to agree, families do ROCK! No matter how stressed or unhappy or pained I may be, my family is what holds it together and makes it all worthwhile. And I'm so glad to count YOUR family as part of MY family! Love to all!
