So happy to have something wrong.

Me and my soon to be 6 year old!
This is going to be a crazy busy week so I figure I will update the 3 of you who want to know whats going on in my life. Tayler turns 6 in a few days. Though I LOVE Pintrest, and use ideas off of it almost daily (Sewing, Crochet,Cooking,Crafting). Does anyone else feel the pressure that Pintrest puts on you? I am doing my son's birthday party Nerf themed. This is not really a theme I can go and buy at Party City.
Pintrest Inspired Invitations.
 So what do I do? I Pintrest! Now I have 6 days before the birthday party and have a list longer then my arm of crafts and ideas I need to put together. I am the over doer birthday mom, so this is kinda of normal. Every year  I would be able to complete last minute NO PROBLEM with my usual 4 to 5 hours of sleep. I feel at the moment I am being tested. My patience, My sanity and, My pain threshold. I provide in home child care 7 days a week, and for the past 2 months I have has "Something wrong" with me. I went to the Dr no less then 10 times in the past 8 weeks. Had dozens of test done and FINALLY they find out my Gallbladder is not working properly(I diagnosed my self with WebMD Weeks ago they should just listen to me). It doesn't contract like it should so it basically over flows. When we got the last set of test back my Dr called me litteraly the second she got them in, I had just walked in the door from the hour drive to Seattle to get the test done. She said "Amanda! You will be happy to know there IS something wrong with you! You are not crazy!" So I get to have it out (Thank God) on the 24th. SO Besides being in pain everyday, this is actually a blessing. See being in pain is a huge damper on my positiveness. (is that a word?) Therefor I have made an effort every day to find a positive thing in my day. It really is quite easy, It helps a ton, and I feel better about all the bad stuff. Yes my back, shoulders, neck, side and stomach hurt..but only really bad when I eat anything fatty. So what do I do? I eat low low fat. Which helps in my healthy eating! Guess who is down 30 lbs NOW!! Woot! It also makes me super tired. This may seem bad but I sleep at night. That is rare. The other night I fell asleep at 10 pm and my handsome, harry, husband woke me up at 8a.m. To tell me one of my babies I watch just rolled over! My first thoughts are OMG I didn't move? How did I miss my alarm?KIDS...SCHOOL!
Handsome, Harry, Husband.
Sean see's my panic and tells me our kids are at school, and the other kids are already dropped off here and fed(me staring wide eyed) It really made me appreciate him that much more. That is not his job, that is my job, but he said he never sees me sleep like that so he let me be. I need it. (Swoon) Weird how that is what is romantic now, after only 8 years of marriage, it use to be bed and breakfasts and nights its sleeping in. Now I am thinking, what if my faulty gallbladder is a good thing? Can I leave it? No I think its my crutch (or slap in the face) Stay positive, appreciate more, eat healthy, be a good example. So i will take it for that instead of a faulty organ and in a few weeks after its gone I hope to keep it up.
