Not according to the plan

Wow. This week has just unravelled somehow. In the last 24 hours, my husband hurt his back and it's left him incapcitated. Poor guy. It's pretty bad; he can't drive. So I spent a large portion of yesterday driving him to various appointments, getting medications, taking care of him, and taking care of kids. Today is a new day, but looks like it will involve much of the same. It's especially nerve wracking because his job is a very physical one and he's our primary bread winner at present. My word has been "breathe."
So... my little giveaway is still going on as planned and ends tonight, but I'm not getting the things done that I thought I would. It's o.k., though. Suddenly, my task list doesn't seem so important.

You hit on the head - suddenly it doesn't seem important. All the crap and stress can be put in perspective my an injury or illness. You will get through this too, I know you will.
PS Lovely photo.

My heart goes out to you, my husband is a plumber so if he gets hurt...no money! He's been laid up many times. It's very stressful, isn't it? You are in my thoughts.

Just curious, is your word breath or breathe? Could be either.

Oh... thanks. It is "breathe," but no I haven't been able to take a "breath." I appreciate your support, guys.

Oh, no. I hope he gets relief and better very, very soon.
