It's Not All Gloom and Doom
I promise. My days are not filled with weeping, wailing and gnashing of teeth, I swear. There are lots of things that have been making me happy recently.
Don't believe me?? Well, check this out...
First, I love Wendy's. Their food is ok, but when we were on our trip home, they had Magic Treehouse Books on C.D. in the kids meals. We got two and my kids LOVE THEM!!! Oh my goodness. We are definitely going to be getting more of these books, either in print or on cd, they are both great!
Second, if you need something to keep your kids occupied for hours on end...get them a chalkboard and chalk. Boy howdy, this has been a life saver, my kids LOVE them!!!
Third, remember I said we went to Lava Hot Springs this last weekend? Well, it was fun. It rained and was cold on Saturday, so we didn't get to spend the day at the pool like we'd hoped. However, we watched movies, went to the pool for the one hour of sunshine the day afforded, and even won an Operation Game (I'm surprised how much kids love this game!).
And, when all else fails to cheer me, I look at this great bowl I got at the thrift store for $2, overflowing with goodness from my garden and I remember how very blessed I am.
P.S. I have arranged for my friend, Joe, to do a guest post here. He is the therapist I met with the other day. He gave me some GREAT advice and strategies and I can already see them working. So, get ready!!
P.P.S. Thank you all for your warm thoughts and comments. It is so good to know I am not alone in this. It helped more than you know.
P.P.P.S. You are my favorites in the whole world. Well next to my husband and kids and family, you know.
