It's one of those days . . .

. . .where I feel like I am raising 4 kids.

. . .where no matter how many times I load the washer the pile of dirty laundry never seems to get smaller.

. . .where I think I have all the dishes clean and I keep finding more.

. . .where I think I have everything on the calendar and then someone reminds me I have forgotten something.

. . .where I feel like I have failed as a parent.

. . .where if I see one more pair of manure covered boots and Carhartts I might go postal.

. . .where I could use a serious attitude adjustment.

. . .where I feel like I am raising a paraplegic pig in my kitchen.

It's one of those days. . .

. . .where I am thankful I have 3 really good kids and a husband who may not always pick up after himself but is my very best friend and gets super excited for Taco Tuesday at Grill Bar and takes me every week!

. . .where I am thankful that I don't have to use a washboard and tub of heated water! that is just what I keep telling myself!

. . .where I am thankful that we have plenty to eat and drink and be healthy! that is just what I keep telling myself!

. . .where I am thankful we are part of an involved community and industry that we love!

. . .where I realize that my parents made it thru my teen years without killing themselves or me and that quite frankly I probably deserve this! As I constantly repeat to myself 'Karma is only a bitch if you are' and WOW is that saying right on the money!!!!

. . .where at least we can afford the proper clothing for our job! that is just what I keep telling myself!

. . .where I am thankful for modern medicine that provides me with a daily dose of attitude adjustment!

. . .where I am actually raising a paraplegic pig in my kitchen who is grunting as I type because he wants fed!!!!!!!!!

The smile on my face doesn't
mean my life is perfect.
It means I appreciate
what I have and what
God has blessed me with.


  1. I feel that way a lot, too! :) Hang in there and keep smiling!

  2. I tell myself these every week.... or day :)

  3. I think you just gave yourself your own attitude adjustment...good job!

  4. You are speaking for the masses girlfriend! (and I need to get my hubby to take me out every Tuesday night!)

  5. Sounds like your glass is more than half full. :)
