Dag nab it, I forgot to post a list yesterday - girrr!

Today has been a tough day...and it's only 2 pm...not good. I feel like that great children's book, Alexander and his terrible horrible no good very bad day.

So without further ado, my list-o-the-day is;
Reasons this has been a bad day (and what blessings I should have been seeing, but didn't)

1. Not enough sleep. Unfortunately, this is a recurring theme in my life.
Blessing I should see: Having a warm comfy bed to sleep in when so many don't even have a roof over their heads!

2. Waking up to my kids jumping (literally) on my bed & crashing onto me. Ok so I heard them come in but I wasn't expecting the great crash - omph!
Blessing I should see: That I didn't get hurt in the great crash. And I spoze I should be happy that none of the kids did either :)

3. Chris is working overtime today. This is the proverbial two edged sword. We desperately need the money but I hate missing out on time together. Plus having to deal with all 3 kids all day by myself. I've gotten very spoiled since Sam started school!
Blessing I should see: this is an easy one...the extra $$ - duh!! Oh and I guess the fact that his bosses like his work & need him to help get the job done.

4. It's a gloomy rainy day. I was going to take a walk with the kids & dog today but the gloomy skies are keeping us in. I guess I could drag us all out there & get wet but I can't walk fast enough with them to keep warm.
Blessing I should see: That our snow is melted & we have had weather warm enough to walk in this past week. And that we live in a walking friendly small town where we don't have to stick to the sidewalks. Heck, most of the town does not even have sidewalks!

5. The kids have been either grumpy, whining & fighting or manically running around yelling & screaming. There seems to be no middle ground today, it's one extreme or the other.
Blessing I should see: I have 3 normal, healthy kids.

6. The kids all screamed bloody murder when I announced they were all napping today. I mean, they sounded like I was going to rip off a limb or something, geez!

Things are looking up around least for the next couple of hours...

And the sun just came out, yippee! Maybe we'll get that walk after all.

Have a fabulous weekend everybody :)

I had a similar day yesterday. I can relate. Reminding ourselves of the blessing is the best way to get through it
