Power of Positive thinking

I am not thinking positive thoughts this morning. I wish I could. I wish I could wake up have my feet hit the floor and be smiling. Not today. Yesterday no.

I wiped my schedule clean today. I decided to not push myself. I decided that being a happy mom is alot better then looking down at my calender and wondering how I am to accomplish all the tasks.

Carter has slept through the night for a week solid! This means I add more to my schedule in hopes of having good productive fun filled days.

We managed to sign Matthew up for an appointment with Lynden Academy so we can transfer him from the middle school, go the park and play for 2 hours, grocery shop, birthday shop, preschool and the rest of the mom duties all by Wednesday this week.

Tomorrow is a yet another busy can people really think staying home is easy breezy?

Matthew and I butted heads this morning over taking out the recycling. You gotta savor the eyes rolling of teenage years RIGHT??? It is part of growing up.

I remember my mom saying to me if I thought it was so bad at home I could go live by myself, pay my bills , do my own laundry, cook and be responsible for my life...the idea of all that seemed so enticing. Until 14 years later of doing it, I would do anything to have someone do my laundry, cook me dinner and pay my bills....

what is the plan for today?

Nothing. Zilch. Notta.

I really did wipe the calendar clean.

I am going push all the toys into the corner and create a spot on the floor for me to play with the kids. I am going to do laundry and run the dish washer...I will have dinner planned out by 9am...I will rejoice in today and be glad in it.

I will. I will. I will.

I feel your pain. It is hard staying home with kids and doing all the responsibilities for the whole family. Yesterday I cried over spilled milk at McDonalds. I really did. I waited till I got to the car. But it is hard. Keep your chin up and enjoy your day of nothing on your calendar.


I can agree with you that times can be hard. As well being positive alot more than being negative can be harder than it seems. But overall positivity is more beneficial.
