A good day

You know that thing you do where you keep eating all day in hopes that it will settle your queasy tummy? But then it doesn't and you feel like a gross pig cuz you ate all day and just feel full? Ya, that.

This mornig was different: after cereal and time w B at 6:00am I went back to bed til 10:30. Most days I stay awake so I can be available and visible to the kids as their normal morning routine. Today I was just so tired. Weird. Anyway, got up at 10:30, had breakfast (potatoes and eggs as a hash is my go to these days), showered and dressed even! Then I started tidying up the clothing explosion in my bedroom. Hung a whole lotta clothes and tired out my healing shoulder. Then did paperwork all day which stressed a knot in the back of my healing shoulder but was darn pleased to have accomplished so much in one day! Even met my kids at the bus and drove to pick up oldest at a friends' house! Wow!! Big day for me... ready for bed and its only 7:00! lol

So grateful for days that see me off the couch and puttering around here. It feels nice to contribute even though it never feels like enough. Today was a good day. Thank you Lord. I am grateful.


  1. Tired is always a good feeling when you accomplished much!
    Praying this trend continues.
    Good night, sleep tight!

  2. Sounds productive! Glad to see you were able to accomplish so much! Good night!
