This could get addicting!

Last week amidst my crazy hectic life, I had to have an emergency appendectomy!!  Yeah me!  Nothing like a little stomach ache to put you out of commission for a few weeks!  Enter in my amazing sister Sheri!  First of all, she had my favorite flowers sent, Gerber Daisies, and then over nighted my favorite cookie dough under the sun, from this little bakery in Salt Lake, called RubySnap.  The cookie is 'Margo', and it is a chocolate cinnamon dough with a molten mint chocolate center, rolled in raw turbinado sugar, seriously, they are so dang good, and I have them frozen in my freezer, ready to bake, at a moments notice!  As if that wasn't enough, she hired The Cleaning Ladies to come and attend to my poor two week neglected house!  Oh my heck, when I came home Friday, I thought I had died and gone to heaven.  My house was clean, and not just cleaned, but organized and cleaned.  They made beds and washed walls and cleaned under the sink, the stove and oven, behind the tv, moved all the furniture and vacuumed underneath, organized toys and cubbies, floors, bathrooms, showers, sinks, you name it, they cleaned it!  And, left all the toilet paper rolls in cute little rose shapes, I almost cried!!

But, I can't give all the props to my sis, I do have the most amazing friends and family.  As I texted my girlfriend at 4:30am from the ER to let her know I wouldn't be able to do carpool that morning, I think by 8:15, she had arranged meals for two weeks, and playdates for my children.  I feel so blessed and grateful for all who stepped in to help, it was hard for Ryan to be away, knowing that I was down for the count, but he knew between my mom, and my church family and friends, I would be just fine, and I was! 

Now if the swelling would just go down, so I don't look like I actually had a baby, even though it feels the same as a C-section, I would be good to go!

You always take such great care of everyone in their time of need. You deserve the royal treatment when your time rolls around, although I am sure you would prefer to not need the help. I hope you heal up nicely.
Love ya

I'm so glad the cleaning ladies were amazing! I may just have to have them come over for some oven, fridge and window time!

Oh Kari! I am so sorry you had to go through all that- and without your hubby! Sometimes it is just amazing what life throws at you.
Wish I was there to bring you a meal and watch your kids.
