Today.....Days of Grace

Today was a good day. Tonight was not a good night. Not that anything BAD happened. I just over did it today and I am suffering for it. I feel terrible because the boys were begging me to play and I just couldn't. After a dentist visit, a trip to the grocery store and making dinner I was completely wiped out. Zip. Zero. Nothing left to give. I hate that. I hate that my kids have to be told No, sorry, cant play now. They are still young and don't understand. They know that Mommy goes to doctors all the time and that she doesn't feel good most of the time. But I think they see more of the negative than the positive. The thought of them growing up remembering all the times I didn't or couldn't spend time with them breaks my heart. Ok, I didn't set out to complain or whine.....lets head in a new direction. Think positive thoughts. Hmmmmmm.....Hubby might have Saturday off. That's good. Tomorrow our DirecTV dish is getting replaced. Our dish and boxes are about 10 years old and are slowly dying. What else is good? You guys. Yep. You guys are good.....especially since I didn't read one single blog today or comment. And you still love me. Yay!
Alright, I'm off to list my D.o.G. and then head to bed. I am Exhausted.

Today I found Grace in....

-More comments supporting my whiny post about being sick. Thanks again!

-Knowing that I can stay home ALL day tomorrow and take a nap right after lunch.

-Getting a months worth of groceries for $90. Our local store has these HUGE one day sales every once in awhile and we STOCKED UP.

-More magazines in the mailbox today. Yay....I love mail!

-God. Actually I find Grace in God everyday.....but I wanted to give Him a little shout out <3

A month's worth of groceries for $90?!?!? How is that possible?

Young Momma said...

90!?!?!? Do you know that I spend anywhere from $500-$800 on monthly groceries every month?! OMG! I'm SUPER jealous!!! ;)

Yay for knowing you get a nap tomorrow! I got an AWESOME nap with my lil one today.

that is so cute. holla! God!

trust me, you are such a devoted, wonderful mother... they will remember the good and the bad will just fade. and i wouldn't necessarily call it bad ( i mean, i KNOW it is bad for you, but i bet for them, it isn't)... lots of moms and dads can't always be available, and many don't WANT to be available all the time. you need to rest and take care of your body, especially given what is in store in the coming months. please don't be hard on yourself. you spend more quality time with your kids than i probably did with mine when they were little.
