Flashback Friday & Smart Habit Saturday

It has been an interesting week. Ty has done well at the hospital.

As far as habits go, aye yi yi yi... Let's just pretend it didn't happen. I'm calling a do-over for this week. This time I really mean to do it.

But, I am going to have to use Lara's habit.doc to pull it off.

If you have some habits you'd like to work on and want to play along, visit Lara's site and learn more. How am I doin'?

Meaningful prayer - working on it
Going to bed early - Hit and miss
No Soda - I have got to come up with a strategy for when I'm at the hospital and so close to the fizzy stuff - at home it's no prob.
Drinking water - Very nearly a habit
Making dinner - meh...I know - Cereal doesn't count
Medical papers - Totally awesome, completely current
Journal - HABIT

And now for a FLASHBACK..........
Here's a picture of Ty and Spielberg when Speilberg was just a week old. I snapped a picture of this old picture. Notice the white scuff marks - This photo (and the box it was in) somehow jostled its way off the pickup truck during a move. My sister and I spent an afternoon gathering over 300 scattered pictures from either side of the Interstate.

We never would have known about it had a passerby not stopped to investigate the "moving blanket" on the side of the road. It was really a quilt from the Philippines - a rather nice one. He looked around some more and happened on a page that had ripped out of my Engagement scrapbook. He found my maiden name and started calling all of them in the phone book.

I answered the phone when he called. Unfortunately Mr. Triumph was working on our house (4 hours away), so my sister and I headed out there to scavenge what we could. Just a little tip: Never, and I mean NEVER put the box with your pictures, album and negatives in the back of an open bed pickup truck. They should be in the cab because otherwise, you're just asking for disaster to strike.

Also, I don't advise picking up pictures from the side of the freeway. It is better to be alive and try to remember how cute your baby looked and how skinny you were on your wedding day. Sigh.

Alright, here is my testament to finishing up the insurance papers. I am done. At least until the mail comes on Monday.
Maybe it doesn't seem very impressive, but keep in mind these are only for January-mid May.
And to finish off, here's a little cuteness.

You may be wondering why all these pictures look like they are taken at night. No? Well it's because I can't hold still (thank you hyperthyroid levels) long enough to produce an unblurry picture so I have to use the auto-focus w/flash.
And that's the truth. (Insert raspberry here, ala Lily Tomlin on Electric Company ;)

so much to comment on. I am having a do over on SHS this week too. The picture is adorable but the tale behind it is horrifying. First I am glad you didn't lose all your pics. But most of all, I am glad you didn't lose, well, your life, getting them!! And then I am very proud of you for getting all the paperwork done!

oops, I forgot to tell you cute pics on the bottom!

That is a huge stack of papers!!
I can imagine ya'll out on the highway. Maybe you should've worn bright orange so people would've thought you were on jail work-release :)

I could really use a "do over week" too! :)

Michelle said...

Bad weeks happen. You can do it this week! I need to print out Lara's habit doc too. Thanks for the reminder!

You've got so much going on! I'm so sorry about the photos. That happened once with my Mother's sewing box. That's expensive stuff so we risked our lives to rescue it.

Cute baby girl! I have been learning some things about taking photos. I want to start posting them because they've helped so much.

Have a great week!

Good for you going through that huge stack of papers. I bet that felt good! said...

I'd like to add the go to bed early to my list, but I fear I'd never get anything done (and I'd disappoint y'all every week :). Oh well, one day at a time - better luck next week!!

sorry to take so long to reply to your comment! I have taught Wombat the sign language for potty - and six months later he is finally starting to use it - to tell me that he is going, rather than that he needs to go lol - I just concentrated on the most important sign (for us) as I don't know sign language so it gets confusing trying to teach it to him!

I'm glad you got at least some of your photos back! what a disaster.

My hubby has hyperthyroid too - not fun :(
