Today has been a good day. Yesterday not so much. Well, the day was good, but once evening fell, my spirit did right along with it. I tried to shake it, however, I just felt an overwhelming sadness. The best thing for me to do at a time like that is pray. Pray and remember all that I have to be thankful for.
On Monday my sister texted me reminding me that it is Januarie! Laughing to myself I knew what she meant. The newest season of The Bachelor was starting that night. For you seasoned Bachelor fans, I thought she meant to write It’s Juanuary for when Juan Pablo was the bachelor. He turned out to be a total creep, to put it kindly. Clare was right tho. It is Januarie. As in Arie Luyendyk. He is this seasons pick.
I didn’t watch it on Monday. I DID record it on my DVR. Soooo…..I watched it last night. I am glad I did. (don’t judge) The craziness of it all made me chuckle and it brightened my mood. Now I am hooked to this season and am committed to seeing it through.
Now back to the original topic. The day. It wasn’t anything special. I took Alex to work this morning. When I got home I shoveled out front. I was frozen solid by the time I got in. Baby Jack was still asleep so I curled up in bed for a brief time to warm up. It did the trick.
The boys have been exceptionally good today. We played, read books over and over and had a lunch of fruit crackers and lunch meat. I cleaned the kitchen, threw laundry in and purged the refrigerator of leftovers that are older than I care to think.
Tomorrow is Friday and the end of the Christmas break. Jace starts back to school Monday and Tuesday my Clemons girls make their return + 1. I will have a newborn to love on again! Busy busy days.
When the days are good I will embrace them. When they are not so good, I know it will pass. No cookies needed so far.
