Flowers on Friday

Friends. We had a hell of a week. 

The whole fam got norovirus over the weekend, which resulted in an ER visit for Ella, an insurmountable pile of laundry, and two completely destroyed parents. Seven full days later, our house still looks like a scene out of 28 Days Later London, with little vignettes of abandoned activity punctuated by violent chaos. 

When you start a week like that, you better get ready for it to continue in exactly the same vein. And it did. Nocturnal baby, flat tire, completely disastrous Thursday, and now an ear infection and pink eye for Aud. 

I am fairly wrecked. 

But it’s Friday. We made it. 

So after the pediatrician’s appointment this morning, I went to Trader Joe’s and bought a) a lot of comfort food, and b) an obscene amount of flowers. 

Sometimes when I have a shitty time, I just want to make something beautiful. 

I need to get online for a few and catch up on work, but later today I’ll be bribing Audrey with Cheerios in her high chair, surrounded by stems and leaves and petals, filling every glass container in the house with fragrant, wild greens and deep, dramatic purple blooms. 

We’ll get the house back together this weekend, but it’s Friday, and I wanted flowers. 

Cheers to the end of a truly horrendous week! Let’s take a break and start anew tomorrow.

Tell me what you think!
