It's getting better all the time

Better, better, better.
Getting so much better all the time.
(love those Beatles!)

To all of you who commented in my last post; You are so great!!! Seriously, each of you got me teary eyed in gratitude. It's wonderful to know that I am not alone (as I always feel on days like that), I have great friends that will lift me in prayer when I'm in need, and that I don't need to be sent to a loony bin! }:0)
I just can't say enough how much I appreciate your heartfelt words to me, they make all the difference.
I also want you to know that the very next day was SO much better & I know that was a direct result of your prayers.
I goofed around with the twins, we made cookies (and a huge mess, and ate way too many) and when Sam got home we watched Ratatouille together. Chris came home early & we had Sam's parent/teacher conference which went very well. Then we had dinner & just hung out together. That's pretty much how the weekend has gone, hanging out and enjoying each other.
So I seem to be back to normal, whatever normal actually is. :)

Sam's on spring break this week so I'm taking the kids to visit my parents. I'm not sure If I will have time to blog or not. I'm going to visit a couple of old friends while I'm there so I'm looking forward to that & just hanging out at my old home. They've lived there for about 42 years, when we visit the kids sleep in my old room & I use my sisters room. The rooms have long since been converted to guest rooms but it's still fun for the kids to think they are in 'my room'. I love that all my memories are in that house, I know the neighborhood like the back of my hand & I'm completely at home there. Plus it's almost like a vacation from the kids when we go there. I get to sleep in, the kids want to hang out with g'ma & pa so I'm virtually ignored - darn!
Poor Chris will be left at home cos he has to work. He very grudgingly agreed to us going, he hates missing out on time with any of us. I'm making a big meal tonight & will put a soup in the crock-pot for him in the morning. What a good lil wifey I am (HA!) I'm sure he will find something to putter with to pass the time in the evenings. Maybe he'll even get a project or 2 done (could be wishful thinking but I can always hope.)

A parting gift of thanks to my friends

And 2 more just cos they make me smile :)

Have a fabulous week everyone!!

I'm so glad your weekend went well. That's just what you needed! Have a good time away this week - Chris will be so happy to see you all back!

I'm so glad that you're doing better! We all have days like that. Mine was today (okay now, although I did slam lots of things and yelled). Sigh.

I love that first song and I loved watching Ringo at the back, just holding the umbrella and peeking out from time to time.

The second never, ever gets old. My mom says she was one of those screaming girls.

I really needed to hear the third one today. Really, really needed it.

Yellow Submarine always reminds me of Electric Company (or was it Sesame Street): "We all live in a capital I"

I don't know that I've ever heard the Octopus's Garden song, although I must have. A good song to keep in your back pocket for those really crummy days.

Have a great trip!

sorry about you bad day the other day. I am not going to lecture you about how you should count your blessings and thank God that your children are alive for you to scream at when all I want is mine back...I hate it when people do that . Yeah I get jealous when I see a mom loving on her 4 year old , but it isnt her fault that mine got cancer and died...
I lost Julian , it taught me a lot . Loving more on the kids, letting them and myself do crazy stuff as long as it isnt life threatening , laugh a lot more with them , but for sure it hasnt taught me to NOT yell at them when I get frustrated!!! I still tell them to leave me alone , i still tell them to get out of my face at times...Kids just likek to push your buttins at times you are the most vulnerable..WHY IS THAT???
Anyways, i dont know that I made sense . but step back ,take a breather and hug the kids...Then yell at them again!!HAHAHAHA
