Good- gave a talk in church yesterday which went well. I actually like public speaking, so it wasn't nerve wracking or anything. This is one of those areas where my husband and I balance each other out. He'd rather have a root canal than speak.
Bad- Noah's foot (which he injured by stepping on a broken popsicle stick. Where he found a broken popsicle stick in my incredibly clean house is s mystery.) wasn't getting better. He limped around, and then started the one-foot-hopping again. So, back to Instacare, where he was diagnosed with an infection. He's on antibiotics. (Just FYI, if you tell your doctor that your kid is good at swallowing pills, maybe ask him how BIG the pills are going to be. Noah can swallow pills meant for people, not for horses. We cut them.)
Good- I went to the library last Monday to write. Got in over 1200 words-yay me!
Bad- That's the last time I wrote. I may be headed for another NaNo failure.
Good- Hunter turned 13.
|Hunter and the enormous doughnut |
his Deacon's quorum brought him.
Bad-I now have four teenagers.
Good- our local station started playing 24 hour Christmas music. (I'm listening to it now.)
Bad- they still play Rockin' Around the Christmas Tree and Jingle Bell Rock.
Bad- my headache escalated yesterday to the staying-in-my-room-no-lights-or-noise-please state.
Good- the Handy Man stepped up and finished dinner, fed the kids and cleaned up after.
So, my life has been pretty much balancing out. I take the bad because it is tempered with good. Also, yesterday I realized it could be worse. I was standing in the gas station, diet Coke in hand, when a woman walked in and greeted the guy in front of us. He hugged her and asked,
She shrugged, "Locked up. Again."
I walked out thinking-- my life may not be perfect but at least I've never said those words.
