☀️ Day

My sweet hubby let me sleep in because I was feeling so poorly. I feel bad because I was in such a good groove of getting up ahead of him and making breakfast. We kiss one another goodbye everyday but because I was sick, I wasn’t able to. That made me so sad. 

I called my doctor and they were convinced that I was suffering from the mumps but going into to see her, the verdict was a little all over the place. In the end, I was prescribed allergy medication. Not bad, I don’t think. I was just so bummed out because this week was supposed to be spent doing a ton of baking. Now it’s not looking so sure.

🌖 Night

I wasn’t in that good of a mood at first. I started comparing my life to other people again and I had a good cry by myself. It was nearly time to make dinner though, and once I put on a pretty apron and got into a groove, my mood started to pick up. I love cooking! It makes me so happy to watch people eat my food and enjoy it. Tonight I made stuffed shells for the entree and brownies for dessert.

⭐️ Reflections

Getting real with myself for a minute, I was being a brat when I got upset earlier today when I allowed someone else’s life get to me. I have to be better at realizing that my life is fine.
