Happy & Sad

The last couple of weeks have been really busy and really up and down. For one thing I have to stop watching the news, sometimes there is just too much information, you know? It's the last few weeks of the school year and there is so much to get done and events to get to. But there are also parties and fun to be had. But that's life - you take the good with the bad and the happy with the sad.

Here are a few of my happy and sad moments this week:

I'm sad that my father-in-law was just diagnosed with lymphoma. Especially after spending the last few years helping my mother-in-law get through two cancer diagnosis.
I'm happy that so far the prognosis is good.

I'm happy for my friends who made the lottery for an awesome new public charter school.
I'm sad that we didn't.

I'm sad that my husband turned 40 this week (how did we get so old?).
I'm happy that I am married to such a wonderful man and that we get to spend the next 40 years together.
(we made him a brownie "Oreo" cookie cake, yum!)

I'm sad that my darling daughter decided it would be fun to swing my Canon Rebel camera around and then accidentally knock it into the furniture and dislocate the lense so now every picture is blurry. :( 
I'm happy that we still have an old point and shoot camera that will get us by.
I'm happy that I was able to finish these mini teacher auction posters for a silent auction at the school this week.
I'm sad that I won't be there to see it and help.

 I'm happy that I got pictures of the project.
I'm sad the pictures did not turn out well (point and shoot).

I'm sad the kids are missing this week of school and some fun activites.
But I'm really happy that thanks to my in-laws we get to spend this week vacationing with family and get to wake up here:
Can't complain, right?  What's on your happy and sad list this week?
