7 Quick Takes: Thinking Positive

Today, I feel just negative, negative, negative. I am throwing myself a pity party, in fact.  Woe is me, life is so hard, blah blah blah.

In hopes of getting out of the rut, let's make a rundown of everything I have going for me today.

  1. I took a shower. That is a wonderful thing, even if it was in the afternoon after lunch.
  2. I am wearing socks. They are clean AND they match! woot woot!
  3. John-Paul is using the toilet for the third day in a row. For both bodily functions! He may be butt-nekkid from the waist down most of the day, and we can't leave the house with him reliably yet, but hey, beggars can't be choosers. That many less diapers that I have to buy.
  4. Yesterday we got our curriculum so we can start our homeschooling. It's going to be awesome. One more step in the right direction.
  5. Also yesterday, I was able to open a child's bedroom window with a butter knife and climb in from the outside before the cat ruined anything after being locked in the room for two hours. That's a good thing. Plus, now I know how to open a window from the outside with a butter knife, so hey, we learn something new every day!
  6. There is still beer in my fridge and it will be consumed this evening. 
  7. God is good.

There ya go. That's the scrape-the-barrel kind of way I feel today. There is always something positive out there, and with great stuff like this, I clearly have tons of great stuff to look forward to. Yup, great stuff.

And just because it makes me happy, a little bonus pic for the day:

That is my dearest Gabriel a mere 9 years ago. Isn't he just the cutest, most gorgeous little boy? He makes my heart melt and he is still a momma's boy. Yessiree, those were the days.
