Check it Out

If you look on the right of my blog you will see that Erin's esty store is on display there. May I suggest to each of you that you take a peek. Erin is my BFF and the most talented girl I know. She could make mud beautiful! You will love what she has done in creating jewelery, she even inspired me to buy some and I don't even like jewelery! Check it out!

You know your in trouble when...

You begin to find profound symbolism in the I just got home from Zumba and I was taking a shower. My shower contains the same things most of yours do...shampoo, conditioner, soap, rescue heroes, dinosaurs, cups and a figurine of Maggie from Little People, you know the usual. I am rinsing off and I notice that Maggie (the only girl type person in all of the play items in the house) is face down in a cup of water. She is on the floor and the dinosaurs and the rescue heroes are looking down at her from the ledge. The dinosaurs are smiling and the rescue heroes look like they are in a conga line having a great time...doesn't anyone see that Maggie is face down in the water? I am afraid I feel a little like Maggie right now. I am just plain worn out from the winter blahs....I feel like a giant whiner baby for saying one word about it. I mean listen to my complaints and see if they could easily go on a list of things to be grateful for...First, my kids NEVER leave the house and while in the house they destroy every thing in sight. Second, my baby has been sick for a week and he coughs and pukes and doesn't sleep much at night. Third, my treadmill up and died on me when it is 20 degrees outside with a sheet of ice on the road, I have been running with the ice, but let's face it at my age I am liable to fall and break a hip. Fourth, it's dark when I get up to get the kids ready for school and Isaac is arguing about having to go to school in the middle of the night (let's face it the kid has a point) Fifth, my husband pointed out to me that I am a grumpy beast. This was a little disheartining since I feel like I have never worked harder to not show that I kind of want to punch everything in sight...What you want me to quit whining now...point well taken. I have everything to be thankful for. How many people wish for a house full of kids to clean up after, a baby to take care of, snotty or no, two legs that can run, and a husband to be put out with. So while I am perfectly aware that I have everything to be grateful for I find myself muttering, "Heavenly Father help me endure my blessings today..."
