New Day, New Outlook

I went home last night and decided I needed to do something about my house so I started. I ran the Roomba in the kitchen and the bathroom. I did two loads of laundry and I actually put some laundry away. I also wrote about 15 thank yous for things I have received for Zack.

So today I feel much better. There are still lots of things I need to do but I am getting there. Maybe it took my one bad day yesterday to kick me in the ass who knows. As I told Jake's aunt I felt like it was all crumbling down on top of me yesterday.

I suppose in the grand scheme of things everyone is allowed to have days like that. In fact I even considered pulling down yesterdays post but then I decided against it. It is real and it is who I am and as much as I try to put on a happy face and act like a strong person there are inevitably days that I break and days that I don't feel so strong.

But today, so far, is a good day. Now if I could just figure out how to get to work on time my days could go from good to great!! :-)

I always feel better about myself and my days when I make productive ones. When I am able to stay on top of things it reflects my attitude.
I see that in you too. The situation you are in with Jake already adds chaios to your life. I notice you feel better and your mood shifts when you are able to stay on top of things. Keep practicing...I think you taking pride in a clean and organized house will help you stick to your guns about a new way of life when Jake comes home also!

WAY TO GO!! Keep it up! I am proud of you and it makes me even happier to see you feel good about yourself! Now I know massages could make us feel better buuuutttt...those will have to wait for another day! :)

So glad you are feeling better. Good for you for tackling your house keeping, I always hate doing it but feel so much better when it is done.

I'm glad you're doing better today, and that you were able to get so much done. It's amazing how such a little thing can weigh on you even when there's already so much going on!

Good job. I have no idea what a Roomba is but it must be some sort of robot floor cleaning thingy. It doesn't make up for everything amiss in your life just now, but dang, how lucky are you, if you have one of those??????????? WEEEEEEEEEHAAAAAAA!!!!!!!!!
