Show & Tell - Monkey Crazy!!

Hi boys and girls - it's that time again!
Time for SHOW & TELL a la MEL!
Don't forget to click on over and check out what the rest
of the class is showing!


Before I share for S & T, I need to give you a run down of my day. Today was NOT a good day for me - physically or emotionally. It did not start out good, and quickly went downhill as my morning progressed. By mid-morning, I was absolutely disgusted, pissed, frustrated and overwhelmed. All of these spontaneous emotions exploded with hysterical crying, ranting to anyone who would listen and a big ole' snot fest for good measure. Thank you medical profession for sending me to this lovely place!

I have been feeling like - "I am so freakin sick of being sick". I have been feeling like my life is never going to get back to normal. I have been having a really hard time - just "liking myself". In the midst of all this, I have just felt like the world's worst wife, daughter, sister, friend, etc.

So now you have an idea of my mindset (scary isn't it?)......

Just when I seemed to be feeling my absolute worst today, something wonderful arrived in the mail. Now hubby had told me to be expecting a package and to NOT look at the return address as it was a gift for me. (Yea for me!) So being the good wife I am, I promptly picked up the package off the front porch WITHOUT looking at the address and put it on the table. I did my very best to keep temptation at bay!

Just a bit later hubby called from work to check on me (although he is used to my insanity, he still checks in on me during my rants) When I told hubby that his "special package" had arrived, he immediately told me to go over while he was on the phone, and open it. I did not put up much of a fight.

So for Show & Tell this week, please allow me to share what my wonderful, fantastic, awesome, cool and loving husband bought me:

YEP - Designer Betsey Johnson monkey earrings!!! Monkey Earrings........Can you FREAKIN' believe it?

I even managed a no make-up, partially grey hair, worn out from sobbing all morning, half-assed smile while wearing this special treat!!!

Needless to mood has MUCH improved!!!!


P.S. Mom - Thank you from the bottom of my heart for shlepping all the way up to Geneva this afternoon and forcing me to make Matzoh ball soup with you. I truly believe the combination of the earrings and soup turned my day around!!!! (You can tell all your friends it was the Matzoh ball soup though) Love you will ALL my heart!
