Today is Monday. And it totally feels like one… Has since first thing this morning when a 50 lb cute dog stood over me pawing me with her gargantuan paws.
Of course that's the start of every day so that alone could not differentiate it from a regular day to a Monday.
Things that can:
Slamming my knee into the doorjamb at our front door while trying to close it
Running into something else (can't remember – short term memory loss) and slamming my other knee on that
Complete lack of motivation to do any homework
Missing RE Class today because John and Grace are sick
Worrying that John and Grace were sick (though this was alleviated after an hour at the doctor's office when given the good news that they just had colds)
Waking up 4-ish times in the night to go make sure they were okay. One in particular I leaped up from the bed and asked (probably really loudly) David if he was okay. I'm sure he appreciated that.
Held a screaming Grace while the doctor gave her a strep test.
Blythe requesting a creative sundae and then getting the wrong kind.
But of course, we can dwell on the bad… or we can focus on the good… I choose the good.
Good things about today:
Spent the whole day with John and Grace
Woke up next to the man I love
Took Blythe to school and picked her up
Made a delicious bacon, egg and cheese English muffin for breakfast
Did chores with my kids and had a clean house for a short period of time.
Made and consumed The Pioneer Woman's delicious Chicken Spaghetti.
Had Bubbles (ice cream)
Watched Morning Glory with my kids
Got work stuff done even though I wasn't able to work at the office
A beautiful sunset with pink, purple and peach streaks lighting up the sky
Spelled words for John and Grace to sound out phonetically while waiting for the doctor.
But the most heart melting moment was:
When Grace was getting her strep test done and Johnny became visibly upset and immediately came up to Grace and rubbed her back with his hand then we all group hugged.
