Me Oh My...

It would seem I've been doing a lot of complaining lately... mostly regarding home life and my extremely active child. I don't know what's going on. Matt's been working a lot and I have been spending extreme amounts of days alone... which if you know me at all, you know is incredibly stupid. This just leads to trouble most of the time. Or... I could be gearing up for Shark Week... which is a euphemism for something else... ifyouknowwhatImean!? Or Lucas could just be a full-blown toddler who continually pushes buttons and the such. Or it could be all of these forces combined... which is probably the case.

Today was a rough one... that's for sure. My dear child found yet another Sharpie (damn you Sharpie!) and in the moments when I put a load of jeans into the washer, he managed to desecrate a side-table and a wall in our bedroom.  It was utter defeat. There were no words. Just steam coming out of my ears.

What is it they say? Fool me once, shame on you; fool me twice, shame on me.

Needless to say, I've scoured the apartment for any remaining/hiding Sharpies who are obviously out to get me in their pact with my child to destroy all things pretty in our house. They are packed away nicely... where grubby fingers can't find them.


And here's to a more positive attitude and a mind set on thankfulness. To be thankful for a child who has the ability to be curious. And thankful for a loving husband who works hard for the money. To be thankful for the little things and the big things. Everything.

Tomorrow will be different. I can feel it.

Here's hoping.

In everything give thanks... for this is the will of God in Christ Jesus for you.
1 Thessalonians 5:18


  1. Shark Week! Too funny... I went a year without a period from BFing both Grace & Violet so fingers crossed that happens again.

    I so hear you on the husband working too much. Rob is studying for his boards in a few weeks and things have been a little rough over here between that and newborn life. Ugh. Hang in there...

  2. Right there with you more than you'll ever know!!!
