    My low this week was definitely my 1 1/2 yr old son vomiting on my lap at 11pm. My high was that my husband was off the road and thus able to change Ben’s soaked sheets. Gross… I know… I’m sorry.

    Okay, I definately fit this! My LOW is my son has been sick since Friday, crying, whining and just pathetic. Poor little fella can’t get better. He has had an ear infection, 2 teeth coming in and a very upset stomach for at least 6 days (so use your imagination). We will be very happy if we wake up tomorrow to a very healthy, happy, smiling baby. I miss his little smiles.

    My HIGH – I have the BEST Moms Together group in the world! They are so supportive, caring and loving. I love you guys!

    My LOW is still in process, praying through a situation in a relationship that I just can’t figure out how to resolve.

    My HIGH is knowing my MT group is praying for me and those friendships are growing! What a blessing!!!

    My low this week was when my 5 month old son was sick this week and decided to stay up from 10pm until 2am on Saturday night.

    My high was when he laughed for about 5 minutes straight at his older sister who was dancing! She is two! It was adorable.

    My low-is seeing my one year old fight a bad cold for two weeks now and also not having my four year old around this week b/c he is with his grandparents. I sure miss him.

    My high-is seeing my one year old turn one-what a great year it’s been!!!!

    My low – More bad news from both of my brothers this week, who just CANNOT seem to get their lives in order. It is getting harder to know how to pray for them and be supportive. If they would just believe us that Jesus is the answer. Ugh!

    My High – Like alot of you with sick children. My high this week has been having my fun little girl back, she was sick all last week and is finally 100% again this week. Great to have her sweet, funny personality back!

    Low- Being sick at the same time as my baby. Killed me that I physically could not be the mother he needed:(

    High- Having the support, love, prayers, and friendship of an AMAZING Mom’s Together group. What a blessing!

    My low this past week is being without my daughter after my divorce proceedings in Maine.
    My high comes on Saturday when she returns to me!

    My low this week is having my husband travel and being 34 weeks pregnant, trying to remember what the fruits of the spirit are as my 2 year old continues to pinch, bite and pull hair of my 4 year old…trying to keep up with the messes, etc. and staying upbeat about it.

    My high is having my firstborn just turning 4 years old and being able to look back and see all that God has done for him to overcome some obstacles…to see him growing into a bright and joyful boy who has an interest in life and learning about Jesus.

    My low was being told we were going to get an offer after a second showing on our house that is for sale, and then things changed and the buyer had a change of heart.

    My high was having dinner and fellowship with friends, and my two year old son was able to play nicely for several hours with his friend!

    My low is easy! My 9 month old baby boy has been sick since Sunday; the doctor thinks it is croupe. He is normally such a sweet, happy boy, so it is so hard to see him like this: fever, coughing, vomiting, congested, etc. On top of that, my husband come home with the flu on Tuesday. My house has been zero fun this week!
    Since I’ve been doing little else besides taking care of them, I guess my high would have to be sneaking away to my first Harris Teeter triple coupon adventure. $79.23 worth of groceries before sales and coupons, and I paid $6.91! Many, many thanks to Kelly Hancock’s wonderful class and blog!

    Ok. . .my low would have to be I totally got off track this week with my diet and exercise. . .I was doing soooo good. . .and then, well, that time of the month came and I just craved fast food and chocolate and I gave in!!! I guess we are entitled to one bad week a month, right???

    My high would be that I had an AMAZING time at my Beth Moore Bible Study this week. . .God is so good!!!

    My low this week is that we are still trying to find a new job for my husband who got laid off from his job two weeks ago….we are having a hard time, so if anyone needs an architect let us know 🙂 My high has been that our son started crawling all over the place andandcontingues to bring us joy everyday

    My LOW- severe insomnia at 34 weeks preggo, 2 hours of sleep, hubby gone for 7 days, 2 yr old has another ear infection, slept through picking my 5 year old up from school (b/c I can’t seem to stay awake during the day) and then locked the keys in the car at walmart. That was just Monday. 2 more days til dads home to help.

    HIGH-have moved bedtime from 8 to 7, resulting in less cranky kids in the morning!

    High : saving big bucks at Harris Teeter – finally the couponing is starting to pay off!
    Low: Joel had to put in some evening hours and early mornings at work, so we missed him at the beginning of the week – we survived though.

    My low would be that my purse was stolen out of my car this past Saturday. 5 charges were made on my debit card, with the first starting within 10 minutes of arriving at our location. This past week has been tough having a sick child and trying to put my life back together with no debit card, credit card and initially drivers license, losing a 50$ gift card to a fun clothing store that I can’t justify going to just go shopping with the economy affecting our family…and gift card to starbucks gone too…

    My high!! being able to have some really fun quality time with my kids this week, getting free antibiotics from Publix (not having to show an insurance card b/c I don’t have one!), saving a ton on groceries this week because we’ve cleared out the pantry and freezer, and having friends who have called and come to spend time with me (which feeds me a ton!)..

    My high is that they started building our new house. Yea!!

    My low is that we are struggling with my daughter (5th grade)& her school work.

    High: my best friend and her 8 month old son and her husband were in town this week so that meant lots of adult conversation this week.

    Low: finding out that my younger sister is really struggling in her marriage!

    My low this week, like so many others, was that my 2 yr old wasnt feeling well and had diarrhea most of the week. Yuck!!
    My high this week was having friends come over last night and just getting to hang out. Also, saving lots of $ at Harris Teeter’s tripple coupon day. Yeah!!

    My low is that my grandmother forgot who my grandfather was this week. They’ve been married for 66 years, and he cried when he found out (a man who has never cried in his life).

    My high is that my grandmother claims that my grandfather is her “new boyfriend” and that he’s a great kisser!! Mind you, He is 92 and she’s 90. Love never fails!

    my high was a wonderful weekend trip with my husband and daughter to the chattanooga aquariaum.

    my low…unfortunately, several come to mind 😦 i guess one that has been on my mind the most is helping several close friends and family members walk through very difficult times.

    My low was my oldest having a febrile seizure and having to be rushed to Vandy by ambulance. Absolute worst experience of my entire life and scariest day ever!! And all he had was a regular ole cold that everyone else has right now. . .crazy!!! Just call me a psychotic tempurature taker from now on!!

    My high is that he is fine now and we got to celebrate the blessing of his sweet little life at his 3rd birthday party!!

    My low would have to be that both of our cars are not really safe to drive right not but thankfully my awesome husband is able to work on them and we are praying he is able to fix them with little to no cost.

    There are so many highs to pick from that it is hard to chooses just one. Each day is such a gift from God. Today would have to be a great high with the beautiful weather He has given us and being able to spend it with family. My sweet angel told her daddy and I today that she just loves spending time with us. Of course this was after I had to guess the password to be able to enter the tree house. Another high for me this week was sitting at the feet of several women who shared their greatest struggles/sins in their lives with a group of a thousand women in hopes that it would help someone else who might be struggling with the same thing they have had to go through and to see God glorified through their complete honesty. He is in the business of restoring. Praise His Holy Name!

    My Low was having a “dueling naptime” with my 2 1/2 year old, only to find at the end of naptime that she had shredded one of her favorite books out of spite for me closing her door.

    My High was finally finishing tagging all of my consignment items!!

  26. Keena Andrews said,

    February 8, 2009 at 9:36 pm

    My high this week was finally getting everything in order to return to work part-time and that my 2 year old is actually excited to start “school” (as he calls it) rather than crying and clinging to me on our visit.

    My low this week was having to tell my soon to be 4 year old that most of his friends could not come to his birthday party and we would have to reschedule to two weeks after his actual birthday. I wanted to cry because it was so sad but he was very accommodating – proving to me that he is growing up.

    My high this week was giving birth to my sweet baby boy, Rocco Molloy Veal!

    My low has been not getting to put my sweet 2 1/2 year old to bed and singing to her every night!

    My high and low are actually the same! We just moved here from Florida in January and have days where we feel like we’re on vacation! We love the cold, the inclusive nature and family focus of Nashville and finding the Women’s Ministry at FBC! On the other hand, it’s been challenging having to dive into life while still trying to unpack boxes, learn my way around town and also attempt to create a new sense of “normal” for my family, all while trying to survive our current economic status. All I can say is “Yeah, God!” – I’m glad it’s ultimately out of our hands and in His! Looking forward to my first MT meeting on Wednesday!

    Low: Not knowing why Caitlin was so grumpy today. and feeling the mother guilt that I couldn’t figure it out.
    High: Apples of Gold had their first meeting last night!
