So today started off rough. Ellie has had a stomach bug for a couple of days. I thought she was doing better. She was “helping” me in the kitchen and acting so much better. But then IT happened.
Ellie tried to climb into the dishwasher as I unloaded it. I gave her the spatula she wanted and shooed her off the dishwasher door where she was perched precariously. I started to go back to my task but then I saw that there was a little bit of rust colored water on the door. I couldn’t figure out what dishes could have dribbled rusty water, but then it hit me.
That wasn’t water! Eeeeew!
I quickly chased down Boo and felt that her pants were wet. In addition there were little “puddles” on the floor clear from the kitchen to the front door!!!!
I almost had a breakdown right there on the floor, but fortunately, I had enough sense to just call out for my knight in shining armor. He quickly came in and helped with Ellie while I disinfected the house and myself. (How would I ever make it through life without him?!)
After that I was so down. I just wanted to go back to bed. I will admit that I was feeling sorry for myself. But then I made the decision to choose joy instead. So I got up off the couch, opened the back door for some fresh air and started baking. I love to cook and bake and so suddenly I was in a better mood.
Then, a friend posted the below quote on FB and I thought it was perfect for the day! Hope it might encourage some of you as well!
