Signed, One Tired Mama

This morning, I had every intention of going to the gym. Okay, that might be a little bit of a fib. I actually had some intentions to just stay at home and watch the rain fall from inside my cozy home but, I pushed through and went through the motions of getting ready to go to the gym.

I took a shower, I got myself ready, I got Piper dressed, I packed us some snacks and loaded everything up in the car, in the pouring rain. Then, we were off! I drove a little while until everything went down hill fast.

Just as I turned onto the highway to head to the gym, I heard Piper start to get sick all over herself in the backseat. I was still on the on-ramp to the highway so, I quickly pulled over on to the side of the road and started grabbing napkins from the dash-compartment. It was still raining and, there I was on the side of the highway trying to clean up Piper as best as I could in the moment. What a mess!

Needless to say, we didn't make it to the gym this morning. I turned around and went home straight away. When we got home, I put Piper in the bath and started cleaning up her clothes. I also soaked the car seat in some cleaner and plan to get it all taken out and more thoroughly cleaned when my husband is home to help me get the seat out of the car!

Now, as I had intentions of doing earlier this morning, we'll be spending the rest of the day at home, watching the rain from inside.


My poor Piper has been sick on and off for quite a while now. We have an ultrasound of her kidneys coming up on Friday due to some other issues that you may have read about here in the last week or so. I just can't wait for the warmer weather to get here for good, to clear up whatever sickness we currently have and to finally get some answers on why Piper has had blood in her urine these past couple of weeks.

Despite it all -- it is well with my soul. I have so much to be thankful for, Piper really is healthy most of the time and, I am not going to dwell on the hard stuff too long.
