A Good Day, A Happy Blog

In re-reading some of my posts from the past week or so, I realize how depressing my life has sounded recently. And I guess, with all the turmoil lately, I have been rather down and depressed. So I am happy to report that things seem to have taken a turn for the better and now I’m all smiles again.

Today I decided that Hubby and I should visit Joey (Hubby’s grandgodson) who is still staying with Grandma. We picked the perfect time to arrive. Joey had just finished napping and was alert, happy and ready to play. He seemed to really like the toy cell phone we brought him as a replacement for the real TV remote which he has taken a shine to. Apparently he loves pushing buttons so we decided that a toy cell phone was better than freezing the real TV which he managed to do at home a few weeks ago. The toy phone, like everything else, spent much of the afternoon in Joey’s mouth. A friend of ours came by to visit Joey and Grandma followed shortly by Joey’s aunt. It was a great few hours and I really think it helped distract Hubby from his vascular ultrasound test that was scheduled for later in the day.

After our visit with Joey, we went directly over to the HMO for Hubby’s test. We were nearly 45 minutes early but they managed to take Hubby within 15 minutes of arriving…how’s that for good service! The test took only a few minutes and the technician gave Hubby the good news right then and there…no blockage, no anomalies, everything flowing really well. Whew…one less thing to worry about!

So all in all it’s been a wonderful day and I’ve got my fingers crossed that the good times will continue for a very long time.

It's good to hear that hubby's ultrasound went well.
And it sounds like the visit with Joey was just what you needed.
You are right, your posts have been terribly depressing of late.
Hope things start looking up for you.

Glad hubby's test went shouldn't be taken lightly. Joey doesn't sound like your average little man; choosing a cell phone over a tv remote? It just sounds unnatural. Let the good times roll!

So glad to hear that hubby's test went well. And it sounds like good times playing with the baby.

Oh good news on the ultrasound! Whew.

Chewing on a cell phone? I still do that.

I'm glad the tests came back negative, great news!

That was such good news to get today! It had to be weighing heavily on hubby's mind before he got the test done. Yes, you are due for some good news and happy times. Glad you had such a good time with Joey but I must say giving up that remote control must have been hard to do. It's a guy thing!

Patti: Things are most definitely looking up!

Patches: I know...a TV remote is a guy thing while a cell phone is a girl thing. Oh well...

Renee: Playing with Joey was fun although I now have aches and pains from lifting and holding him for hours. He's better than an exercise machine for getting into shape!

Meno: I'm definitely a chewer as well...just look at my pen and pencil tops. Ugh!

Sari: Thanks for the well wishes.

Midlife mom: I'm still looking for a toy TV remote...the toy cell phone will just have to do until I can find one. ;~)
