I try and wake up before everyone else so I can shower and get dressed and get all that out of the way---because if I don't shower first thing then it sometimes never happens for me...
...and sometimes when it is cold outside, I would love so much to stay in my pajamas and sip hot coffee all day--but then of course that is the day someone unexpected comes to my door...
I have to shower everyday and shave----I never want my husband to think that just because we are married I have gotten comfortable and not care about myself. When I feel good, I do good and when I do good the house runs more smoothly and everyone is a lot happier. I once read somewhere that you should treat your home as if Jesus was coming over---well I am not sure my home will ever be that perfect, but it is clean and neat and it is a nice haven for my husband to come home too every day....and my children too of course.
I was listening to the radio and the person on the radio said, do what you love and you will never have to work a day in your life--that is actually how I am feeling right now--I absolutely love what I am doing. My husband used to say "If Mama isn't happy, no one is happy" Well, I take that to heart and really try to be the best I can--and I am happy, I just try not to let things bring me down--I have noticed that when I am in a funk--I think of all the wonderful blessings in my life--but there are days when I am sad, when I think of my mother or my dear friend that are no longer here with us--and then I have to remember I will see them again.
I love getting out my Household Notebook and making lists and planning menus and printing off pretty poems and gentle reminders about how to be the best wife and mother I can be.
My sweet husband has taken Alexis to the Birthday party and great big *Bounce House*--I turned my ankle the other day so I would not be too much fun---it has not stopped me from doing anything, but I am so gratful for bed time when I can put my foot up.
Tony came to me today and apologized for his actions this week--but he is still on restriction--he is mad, but I can't just waiver this for a simple sorry--I need to see actions with his words. I did tell him I appreciated the applogy.
Little Kevin is napping so I am going to go to the the Prairie Homemaker now and see what everyone is up to there--I love that website:)<>
