This post is a shout out to my oldest daughter Pumpkin Pie, who I had to pick up early from school for being sick.
It all started yesterday morning when she said she did not sleep well because her stomach hurt all night. We had deep dish pizza the night before so I thought that was contributing to her symptoms. I did all my nursing assessment stuff and gave her a Tums and sent her off to school.
Little bit and I headed off to Ikea. I was sitting down to breakfast, drinking coffee when the phone call came from the school nurse. My pumpkin was having abdominal pain again. So I had to throw my food away and drive back home.
Long story short, I was right , it was the pizza. She threw it all up that afternoon. We were pain free all day till she decided to blow chunks.
Today she feels 100%, and no one else is having any trouble.
Now, why I am saying thank you….
If my pumpkin would not have been sick, I would have stayed at Ikea to buy the things on my list. I would not have gone to Home Goods instead. I would have never seen my new gorgeous pillows.
When I decided on the coral quilt (also from Home Goods), I initially was going to get gray sheets, then use black and white for my pillows and a throw. The bright navy sheets spoke to me one day at Target, and I have to say they are perfect.
When you use colors like blue and coral, you put yourself in a very difficult position. Although they are popular colors right now, it is hard to find pillows that complement them. Mr. Kell and I make a modest living, and there is no one sponsoring me to buy stuff from their store. My pillows had to be less than $25.00. They also had to have the potential to be used in another room.
Well kids, Home Goods came through. The blue pillow on the left was only $19.99, and the blue one on the right was $16.99. I flippin love that store. I had just been there a week before, and neither of these pillows were there.
The other three pillows were bought at Ikea last year. They were previously being used on the couch.
I kept thanking my sweet girl for being sick and she just giggled. I had no plans to go to Home Goods this week, and I may have missed out on my new pillows.
I guess Ikea was just not in the cards yesterday. That is why I am going today. I really need some dining room chairs, but I suffer from the “I am cheap” syndrome.
Now all that is left for the bedroom, is curtains, art for behind the bed, and a small glass table to house the computer.
To know me is to love me.
