Thursday's Ten: things that have happened in the last 7 days

i've been BUSY, y'all!

1. packed and got overwhelmed by all the packing to do
2. called in the troops, and between the army and i we got the entire house packed and cleaned by 10 pm sunday night!
3. witnessed anthony's little sister hailey get baptized at church on sunday
4. was hit by a car in the wal-mart parking lot on sunday
5. said goodbye to my house with more than a few tears as we locked everything down on sunday. thankfully, at that point only anthony and his parents were there to witness that.
(and jiminy the cricket came back in from the backyard one more time.)
6. turned in my keys to the real estate agent on monday and received a check in return
7. went to dinner celebrating hailey's baptism at maggiano's on tuesday night
8. followed dinner with an er visit. i'd been short of breath and between anthony and his parents was forced...ordered convinced to go see a doctor
9. was admitted to the hospital overnight (with the threat of it being more than an overnight stay). turned out to be asthma exacerbation--a flare up of a condition i thought i had grown out of at the age of 12. anthony says i gave him quite a scare--i'm sure the oxygen mask, ivs, my incredible pain at being stuck the first time they drew blood, and the fact that i still couldn't catch my breath even by the time they got me into my hospital bed didn't help in that at all.
10. was released approximately 14 hours later (noonish wednesday) and taken to anthony's mom's house until she deemed me fit to go home. she came and vacuumed all my furniture and did a little extra unpacking too when she dropped me off onto her couch. amazing woman that she is :-D

so they say bad things come in 3s. i'm thinking starting with anthony's granddaddy's illness and death, the foreclosure, and this er visit and hospital stay we're due for a run of good things.

can i get an amen?

(for those of you who are new followers from monday--thank you! i promise i'll get to each and every one of your blogs if you commented--i had internet for approximately 5 hours before i started feeling really bad)

Wow, what a week you've had! So glad to hear you weren't in the hospital longer than you were ~ although I know that was plenty long enough. Take CARE of yourself, missy! I am thanking God for your precious Anthony and his parents and how awesome they are to you!!! :)

I think you've definitely had your share of bad luck lately! Good things ahead for sure. Hope you are feeling better, I have asthma too and despite the rumors, you NEVER grow out of it, and it can flare back up at any time. Be careful!

Lora, thank you for stopping by my blog. It enabled me to find yours. You're a very wise young woman. I've learned and forgotten and had to relearn the lessons of "Be still and know that I AM" many times in my life. Now I know where to come for a reminder. You're a lovely writer. I look forward to getting to know you, my new friend.

Oh my goodness!! Sorry 1, you got hit by a car! and 2, about your hospital stay! Scary! So glad you had Anthony and his mom to take care of you though and 3 that you had to say goodbye to your house. I'm sure that was really difficult!!

Yay for the good stuff!!

I'm really hoping things turn around for you soon; I totally think you deserve it!

I have an award for you on my blog, but it's the same one Kathie gave you, and she gave it first! :-)
