Bad/Good; Bad/Good

Bad news: Two of my kids are sick. This sickness that is going around is driving me crazy! It's basically a chest cold, and I talked to our school's receptionist and she said it's been common for most kids to miss a few days, come back for a few days, and then miss again. We are now in that camp. Frustrating!
Good news: Brandon bought me my stroller! It came this morning! It's green, it's comfy, it's great! The exclamation points I keep using are not strong enough to portray my excitement!

Bad news: My basement looks like it belongs in Dante's Inferno and I forgot to do laundry yesterday, rendering the spousal unit disappointed because of his need for clothing.
Good news: I started the laundry and am ignoring the basement for now.

Bad news: It snowed. And it's cold.
Good news: I'm heading out with my mom and sister for a Girl's Only overnight this weekend. Huzzah!

Bad news: I criticize myself too much.
Good news: I still like myself a lot.

Bad news: #5 fell down the stairs this morning.
Good news: He came away unscathed --just scared.

Bad news: I'm constantly bursting with new ideas that never seem to come to fruition.
Good news: I'm learning patience.

This time, like all times, is a very good time, if we but know what to do with it.

Hooray for good news! Good luck with the bad news.
And the baby in the artwork looks as edible as the peaches! Chubby babies and fresh peaches...what a great picture. :)
