My five for today....
That some day soon it will be Spring, and this crappy weather will be gone.
For today's PD day, and not having to walk Gabe to school in the rain and wind.
Being safe and warm in the house while the wind howls wildly out outside.
Making it through another day
Having someone leave a comment on my blog:)
I find myself not dreading this tonight. It has been SOOOOO hard to do this every night, and I have found myself putting it off as late as I can in the day. Tonight, not so much.
On to tonight's five...
Getting two blog posts written today
A nice hot cup of tea, or two :)
A time for reflection
A few days of work for Gord from a friend....every little bit helps
Rediscovering a love for photography
Listening to Gabe read his 'Snuggle Up and Read' book about Purple, and him getting most of the words right :)
Enjoying some time to make love to my husband
No kids waking up during
Finally seeing the second part of an old two part Criminal Minds episode
That the kids are happy with a chocolate chip cookie for dessert
Here we go...
No new bad news today.
A special offer from my sister.
A husband who even though he feels completely battered by our situation is still sitting here trying to help me find my five.
That our boys are sleeping soundly.
That now that I am typing my last of the five I can shut off this computer and snuggle up to my hubby and go to sleep.
What I have been grateful for these last couple days....
My mom coming by with gingerale for me, and supper for Gord and the boys...Thanks so much mom!!
That I'm not puking anymore!!!!!
A visit from Jyll, Erik, Aubree, and Piper yesterday (missed you Delaney). Too short, but atleast we got to see them for a bit.
Getting all the dishes done.
That there are still moments when we can find a laugh
That I'm not drowning in my own tears...well, not yet anyway.
Well, that's it for now. I'll do my best to be back tonight with the five for today.
That even though things are falling down around us, my love for my husband has not waivered.
A kind note from a friend.
A long hot shower. It's amazing how much noise you can block out with your head under a shower head.
Gord going for the groceries today.
Beating the garbage truck to the end of my driveway.
Today's five things....
All of the wonderful people who are thinking about us and taking the time to keep us in their thoughts and prayers.
Experiencing the joy that my kids get out of being tickled, and laughing with them as they try to tickle back.
An afternoon nap. Being pregnant, stressed and extemely emotion is VERY draining.
Not having to share my chocolate popsicle.
Making it through another day, still alive, still sane...well, as sane as I can be.
It has been a very hard day. We continue to struggle with my husband being out of work, nothing seeming to come together, and to top it off today we had to give back our car. So, this is an important day for me to try and see the good in the day instead of dwelling on how miserable it feels.
Here are today's five things to be grateful for....
The precious hugs and kisses of our boys. No judgement, just love.
Sharing some time reading books with the boys.
Feeling the baby move.
Before we had to take the car back I was able to get the rest of the laundry dried at the laundromat (dryer died a couple months ago)
The help and encouragement of great friends.
