My Weekly Five: Lots of Tears Edition (Tuesday Talk #62)

It's been an emotional week!  It hasn't been because of anything serious, so this post is mostly in fun, but we've had our share of tears of joy, frustration, love, and sadness this past week:


1.  Illness
We avoided being sick alllllll winter.  Until last Monday.  And, boy, did this high fever/coughing/upset stomachs illness hit everyone (except me!) hard.  So it's been a tearful week of recovery.

The bad news - it's been draining.  But the good news - everyone has been sleeping beautifully because of it!


2.  Doc McStuffins
Did you hear the news that the McStuffins family is adopting?!  Doc is one of my kids' favorites, so we were thrilled to find out they are growing their family through adoption!  The first episode (where the parents announced the news to the kids) was on Friday.  I cried.  It was so sweet and so beautiful.

The next few weeks will be about the adoption - and we can't wait til they bring baby home at the end of the month!  (If you're interested, you can see the schedule of episodes and the trailer here.)


3.  Peyton Manning's retirement
I couldn't help but cry while listening to Peyton speak at his retirement press conference yesterday.  Especially when he recounted his time in Indianapolis.  We will miss you, #18!  Thank you for being a great representative of Indiana and for being a class act on and off the field!


4.  Food sensitivity results
Well, I got my results from my food sensitivity testing.  And I'm not surprised.  I'm going to have to make a lot of adjustments over the next several months, but only one thing is hitting me hard: I have to be dairy-free for 3 months (at least).

I'm a milk-a-holic so this literally makes me want to cry.  I just have to keep telling myself that it's for my health, it's to keep the endometriosis under control, it will help me more completely heal post surgery, it will be good for me - I can do this!


5.  Endometriosis
I'm so glad we didn't wait and that I'm having the surgery very soon.  I've been having painful episodes lately so I'm looking forward to this being taken care of this month.  Yeah, the surgery prep, surgery itself, and recovery is time consuming and "painful".  But I'll take it so I can be healthy and not have to worry if/when I'll have a major flare up!



So enough about me!  Did you watch the Doc McStuffins episode or Peyton's press conference?  What did you think?  And has your family been able to avoid the cold and flu bugs this winter?

I hope you've been having a wonderful end of winter and that if you've had tears lately, it's just been tears of joy!
