Ten Little Things

Ten little things I'm grateful for today:

1) That dinner is waiting in the crockpot when we get home.

2) That I snapped some really, really cute pictures of the boys carving pumpkins yesterday.

3) That I still have a job in this crazy economy.

4) That I already have enough people to start my book club.

5) That The Destroyer doesn't have an ear infection afterall.

6) That my back doesn't hurt anymore.

7) That I have some time to go to the gym tonight.

8) That we are debt free as of today!

9) That I found an amazing recipe for pumpkin pie.

10) That I reconnected with another old friend on Facebook.

It's amazing how easliy time can get away from you. For some reason I really can't remember, I started to fall behind on my blogging. One week went by, then another, then another, then yet another. Before I knew it, more than a month had passed since my last post. I wanted to write stuff- I really did. A lot has happened in the time since my last post. Captain Crazy turned 4 and I made an absolutely killer Spiderman cake for his birthday, I turned 37 (yikes), Captain Crazy started Pre-K, my 16-year-old dog passed away, we had a week long visit from my in-laws, etc. etc.

I guess part of the reason I let my blogging activity slide is because I struggle with every single post and it ends up feeling like WORK and I don't want it to feel like that but that's what happens. I agonize over every single post wondering if what I just wrote even matters or not. Anyway, I finally decided that I'm just going to write something - anything, to get better at writing and just to get something "out there". My whole point of starting this blog was to share something with the world - to share stuff about parenting and life with kids and if other people related to it - great. If they didn't then they didn't have to read my blog - simple as that I guess. So, here's to the new day #1 of my blog. I'll be back when I can decide on which of the zillions of things I want to write about first.
