a 360

Even though I didn't get sleep last night, and here it is 11:30 and I am still awake, I am doing much better.

My mom is great and she came up this afternoon and helped me clean my house. Let's just say my kitchen was SO dirty she was in there for over 2 hours alone. But, it's clean and looks stunning and awesome! I love it!

I was so overwhelmed, I didn't know where to even begin. I made lots of small strides on my own, but once she came, it all just happened and now I have a clean home. I also went to Walmart and so that is another thing off my list. I made money today at the volleyball thing which paid EXACTLY for my new running shoes I just bought (that I was stressed about spending so much on). I worked on our bills, budget and all that depressing stuff and got it out of the way (at least the admin. side of it). I got all the kids clothes organized and put away and the only dirty laundry is the stuff I just took off, whew...that was about 10 loads! :)

So, its been a busy and productive day and maybe that is what I needed to get my spirits up. I also spent some time with the Word and memorizing and praying. That obviously helps a ton too. Just when I didn't think I could take one more day, God pulled through. Again, my circumstances haven't changed, just my outlook and my attitude.

...just in time for my family to pull in the driveway :) I've missed them...goodnight

Glad you are feeling better! Sometimes a mom who can help with the overwhelming things is just the answer. I'm glad she is close enough to be there for you. Hope you are resting peacefully now! I will pray that Creighton sleeps tonight. Sleep tight!

I am glad you are doing better. I tried to call you to see if you need anything, but just got the machine. Hope you are having a good day!
