I’m going about my day minding my own business, when out of nowhere self pity rises up and slaps me in the face. Well I probably instigated it a little bit.
It’s hard not thinking about those lucky ducks who are going to the big “Blog” conference, getting pedicures, buying conference clothes, are sans children for a few days and living like sorority girls; while I’m here feeling like a zookeeper. I figured it’s time to dust off the gratitude journal again and get out of this pit of pity. Sad thing is, I’m feeling the gratitude tank is a bit on the E side. We can’t have that.
-I hadn’t mentioned this but I did win a $100 gift card to JC Penny from 5MinutesforMom last month. That /is a huge blessing and will really help with new school clothes and shoes. These boys are in desperate need of shoes, but lets not dwell on the negative, as that only brings us down. I’m looking to spend it wisely during No Tax Weekend in August.
-I’m making small progress on Purge Party ’09. I disinfected my washing machine yesterday which I hadn’t done ever, but I know should be done. Amazing what a cup or two of bleach will do during an entire empty washing.
-Grateful to you guys for keeping my chin up and helping me to trudge through this one day at a time. I can’t wait for the day I can sit back and relax and say; “wow that was a life changing experience!”
-I’ve really been impressed with the boys helping me out a lot lately. At least 1 if not all 3 have helped me out with dinner in someway every night. This grounding thing has been a blessing after all. We seriously haven’t even turned the TV on for a DVD all week.
-I’m so proud of Wonder Boy! He faced his fears and actually jumped into the pool the other day. We all were very shocked that he just up and did it on his own with out any coaxing. He’s always been just an easy does it going in kind of swimmer. So this was a huge step in progress for him!
Feeling much better already!
