It’s been a super stressful and sad week around here.
Yesterday, we lost a beloved family member, my own wonderful Aunt Colleen. Tomorrow, one of my kiddos is having surgery (routine wisdom teeth extraction, but still). I’ve just generally been feeling pushed and pulled in every direction.
Several weeks ago, I bought tickets to see The Fault in Our Stars (#tfios, if you’re a fan) for my 19 year old daughter and myself. The move is tonight, a day before the general release and we have decided that in spite of everything going on, we’re going to take those couple of hours to enjoy one of our favorite stories by one of our favorite authors.
Preparation includes the “Okay” bracelets you see at the top of the post (pony beads, alphabet beads and stretchy cording) as well as my TFiOS backpack from DFTBA stuffed with packets of travel tissues. I already anticipate tears, but now I expect even more. I’m a champion cryer, and I might breaking a record or two tonight.
It’s not all sadness around there, though the stress has been quite abundant. OK!Magazine featured my #tfios Okay? Okay. embroidery and my phone went a bit crazy with tweets! You can get the free embroidery pattern here.
It’ll be a few days until my next post. Take care of each other and take a moment for yourself today.
