this is how it goes

I got up this morning, made the kids some breakfast, woke Chris up, made myself some breakfast and was prepared for a day of temper tantrums and hollering from my littlest one when Chris comes into the kitchen and tells her to go potty so she can go bye bye. :-o Marie was shocked. She didn't have to ask him to take them with him. She didn't expect him to take them with him. He had some work to do this morning and then he was going to feed the dogs and put some corn out for the deer and turkeys. I fully expected that he was going to go by himself. But he surprised me. Which is a good thing.

So I have this whole morning, quietly stretched before me and I have a ton of things I could be doing, ie, laundry, dishes, mopping floors, etc. etc. but instead I am drinking a very peaceful cup of coffee and enjoying the quiet. The only thing I hear at the moment is the hum of the computer and the coffee pot sighing. That's what it sounds like. Yes, I will eventually do something more productive with my day. But right now, I am just enjoying the solitude. ;D

Last night, we had dinner. We went to Tony's. Stayed for like an hour. By the time we left, I was so tired but we still had to go to Wal-Mart because Elizabeth was almost out of pullups and I didn't want her to run completely out. We shopped for awhile and then came home. Fell into bed exhausted and slept until about 8:30 this morning.

I spent so much time yesterday crying that I thought I was turning into a water fountain. 8- Got worse after Chris came home. He keeps telling me not to stress but I can't help it. It's stressful. He said stressing was his job. I don't want him to stress. I just don't know what to do and it's frustrating. :-/

I think I will go outside for awhile. It's cold this morning but the sun is shining for now. Supposed to rain later today. I hope it holds off for awhile though. I want to get some stuff done outside before the weather gets bad.

It's been awhile since I have done one of these although my offline gratitude practice remains on point. In no particular order, here ar...
