Yeah, been gone for awhile.  I've put off posting because I have a lot of "negative" thoughts going on right now.  I'm afraid it will spill over to my blog.  And, although this is MY space to say what I want, I hate to be negative.  I have too much to be positive about.  But, unfortunately, the negative seems to be stronger, in this war going on in my brain.

So, I thought I'd do a little "Thankful list". 'Tis the season and all.

I hate doing dishes.  I am thankful for the food we have to eat, that dirties up those dishes. And the water that's constantly running to clean them. 

I am forever cleaning house.  I am thankful for the house we have.  For the roof that's over our heads. For the little people ( and the larger people that live here too) that mess it up. Every. Single. Minute. Of. Every. Single.Day.

I have so much going on, it's hard to think straight. I am thankful for my friends and family that want and need me. For the obligations that someone has trusted me enough to assign to me.

We are so financially challenged right now.  I am thankful that because we're poor, we can appreciate the little things. I don't  think a meal from McDonalds would be a thing to celebrate, if it wasn't such a treat these days.

My husband REALLY hates his job.  I am thankful he has a job to hate.  Seriously.

 I don't have enough time to blog.  I am thankful that when I finally take a 30 min. break from school and housework, that my blog is still here. And, although I haven't posted in quite some time, I haven't lost any followers. Not that followers are the reason I blog, but it's still nice.

My kids are fighting ALL. THE. TIME.  I am thankful I have 4 kids that are healthy enough to give each other a run for their money.  The fights can get physical and they are sometimes really quite the show.  Maybe future UFC Champions? 

I hate being a woman.  I am thankful I am a woman, or else I wouldn't have the kids that fight. ALL THE.TIME. I wouldn't be able to justify the rare treat of a bubble bath, with a good book.  I suppose if I was a man, I could still do that. But, it'd be weird.

That's it for now. 
I hope to be back soon with posts about how my "baby" boy is turning 12 and his voice is changing and I see a shadow above his upper lip. 
About how happy I am to be a stay at home mom. And, I'm sure my kids will do something worth posting about.  Chances are good. Even if it's about how they fight. ALL. THE. TIME.


  1. it would be weird to do those things as a man wouldn't it.. lol....

    Life is sometimes hard.... hang in there... we will all be here when you do have time to stop in... Hugs and prayers your way!..

  2. I think it's funny (relative term I suppose) how if we just change our perspective on the things we can't stand, they can be viewed as a blessing. Why is it so hard to do that, though!?

    We are so very much on the same page, my friend. I'm praying for you (because I can SOOO relate to how you're feeling!). Love you!

  3. I'm glad to see you posting again.
    And I don't know that saying grumpy things qualifies as complaining. Facts are facts, yes?

    I have to tell you that the picture you have of your kids at the top there is so darn cute... I can almost guess the personality of each child just by looking at those faces.

    Keep posting. And I am just an email away if you want to vent. Believe me, we all need to now and then.


  4. At least your husband has a job to hate! Mine doesn't have one to hate or go to!


Please comment! Even if you just say "HI!".
