I've actually had a great week. It makes it much easier when you focus on the small things that bring joy into your life.
I have found joy in letting Nate watch Cars only when I want him to. That means distracting him by other doings during the day then when I need to relax (FB, eat, veg out), I act like it's a big treat and I'm cool Mommy again because I'm letting him watch "movie Cars, Mama". I swear he thinks that's the title of that movie.
My sister Michelle's birthday was yesterday. I find joy that she loves her new purse from Mom and me. I love that I've talked to her on the phone about 47 times and on Skype a couple times this week.
I love that I got a Lilith Fair 2-for-1 coupon code last night so I finally got off my tush and bought tickets. IN DENVER. FOR MICHELLE AND ME. SISTERS-ONLY TRIP! My only anxiety is that I've not even been away from Nate for one night in his entire life. Now I'm going to leave for 4 days. Happy and nervous. And definitely excited.
I'm full of joy that I have a great husband who I'm celebrating 10 years of marriage to today!
Thanks Whimsy for the joy challenge this week. It's been, well, joyful! Mission accomplished.
