Confessions of a mom, wife, & friend. Thankful again!

Saturday, March 31, 2012

It's been 3 weeks since my last entry and this is my update. My daughters curtains were sewn, and hung up. Her traverse rod doesn't work now and I have to repair 2 traverse rods now. I need more hooks for both my son and daughters curtains. My daughter & I are healthy this week after a 2 week bout with a flu & cold. My son is on the volleyball team, and 3 teammates showed up for their 1st game that I wrangled to get him there. My daughter performed in her first play, and she was not in full costume or make up and my family & friends didn't see her. Teacher's on my forgiving list. I have not exercised in 3 weeks, I binged 3 days this week, and I'm afraid to eat in fear of gaining weight.

My husband and son are enjoying themselves with my in-laws,and I gave them the wrong date to meet their team. They went a day earlier than needed. My husband forgave me all ready.

My friend visited us for 2 days, & I was a grouchy host. I didn't eat very healthy either. I cried when I left her at the airport.

My daughter & I have today and tomorrow to spend time, and all I want to do is stay home and organize, but there is more to life than that. I just don't want to do any more driving, meeting people, buying, sewing, planning....

I really want to complete my projects, but I wish I had a "wife" to do my cleaning, and organizing. Truthfully, I am too cheap to hire a house cleaner for a once a month helping session.

My husband and son just phoned and shared kisses and loving words with me. (my bucket is full.)

Well, so glad I got that off my chest. Confessing is really good for the soul. Whatever happened yesterday will be pushed behind to the back of my mind because that doesn't matter anymore. Today is a better day and clean from mistakes or mishaps. I want to try this new restaurant in LA and hope to share it with my brother. I'll do my exercise and share Wii exercise with my daughter tonight. I'll just share today and take it from there.
Hugs fill my bucket and loving thoughts. What fills your bucket to cheer you up? I hope your bucket gets filled. Thankful for a new day.

    So true! Glad you were able to push it all behind and keep moving forward.
