{ Blog 365 #142 - Happy Homemaker Monday - 05/22/2023 }

Good morning friends.  I am so sorry this post is once again late.  It's been a week, a crazy, emotionally charged week, especially this weekend.

It started with the poor starving puppy that walked onto our property.  We managed to save her, feed her, and she has gained some weight.  We also found her a home with my niece Tiffany, and she is so happy with her new home and her 2 new doggie siblings.  It was a stress filled ride, because no one wanted her, we couldn't keep her, and when we tried to take her to humane society, they denied her and stated she needed to instead be turned into the local animal services, which is a kill shelter.  It's just heartbreaking!

Once we got that taken care of, and she was in her new home, thank God for my niece Tiffany and nephew Stephen, our Kaia started throwing up.  We spent two nights up with her.  She is fine now, thank God as well.

And then Friday morning, my poor husband was hit with a migraine attack that lasted all weekend long.  If you have migraines, you know how debilitating they are.  I felt helpless at times, not knowing what to do for him.  He is fine now, but goodness.

He is also celebrating his 50th Birthday today, so I'm glad he is feeling back to normal.

So, it's been just crazy.  I only got a chance this morning, to run out and get him some gifts, hence the lateness in this post.  Please forgive me.  

Let's just get right on it. 
I hope you all have a blessed day and blessed week.

I hate weeks like that! I'm glad everything is on the mend and you found a loving home for the dog. Happy Birthday to your husband and glad he's feeling better.

What a week for you! Mine was also difficult and stress-filled, but thank the Lord for that Bible in (or on top of) the reading pile, right? Psalms is such a comfort to me in difficult times.

I always enjoy seeing your menus. Very inspiring!
