Every Friday write a story or poem of 55 words,
no more, no less and then report it to the G-man!!
This week I used pictures to visualize!!
"There once was a little girl named bean.
Of blowing bubbles and making wishes she was keen.
One day she decided not to take a nap,
She became very grumpy and gave her sister a slap!!
We tried to calm her with kisses and care,
Alas nothing worked so she fell asleep in the chair!!
Here ya go G-man, ain't she cute!! I just love it I know it won't last, but it is so much fun to hold her and play. hope she doesn't hate me when she is older for posting her online!!!
Well today was very, very busy, I did not eat pancakes!!! yeah me!! then I worked out and had a protein shake and then the electrician came by, and the stovers guys, and hey there was water down there and these guys took a machine and sucked it all out!! they didn't need to cut it!! So can you hear my sarcasm!!!
Then i called the state licensing and they told me what I needed and so I called to make an appointment with the fire marshal!! I know it is so weird i am moving forward and not sure if I am doing this right but I am going to try. I will get my contracts printed up and my parent packets ready, i will need a script for the phone and hopefully I will be starting work sometime soon.
my children are talking in their sleep right now, it is soo cute. OK so I feel really good about moving forward and i need to do more tomorrow, I need to install a door knob on the bathroom door. this is a "Wes job" but since he is off working to pay bills and then going to school for a better job I guess i can figure it out. There is a doorknob on there now, it just has a lock and the fire marshal will want to see that it doesn't, so we got a new one that didn't lock, now i get to pretend to be a carpenter. Also i think i am going to try and get the kitchen corner painted so I can try to nail the trim back up, it has been a year and he has not scratched that off his "honey do list", so I will pretend to be a painter, I painted my living room I think I can handle that!! As far as hanging the 20 foot ladder in the garage, he really needs to do that.
so i am feeling kind pumped right now, oh I almost forgot some man came up to me in the library and gave me a candy bar to give to my kids!!! I was like trying to coral 2 toddlers at the time so I didn't look up and since i was in my usual NA garb I couldn't be rude so I simply thanked him and walked away. Well they saw the candy bar so when we got home, my teenager was eyeballing it and I told her go ahead but to inspect it first. The dang thing had needle marks in it I swear!! I just threw it out and labeled myself worst mother of the year. The babies were devastated. They don't get sweets often, oh well Halloween is coming heads up ya'll I will be inspecting candy bags!!
OK so my gratitude list 5 things;
1. today i am grateful for the ability to be gracious to strangers.
2. today i am grateful the electrician only cost 40 dollars.
3. today i am grateful we have just enough money to pay our bills and not be in debt.
4. today i am grateful for the time we spend with our family.
5. today i am grateful for the courage to change.
I really have a lot to be grateful for and this journey of recovery has blessed me in so many ways. sometimes it is easy to get mired down in the rat race, but then i see my girls smile and it is off to the races again . they really make it all worth while. so for today's thought; "The pessimist sees difficulty in every opportunity.
