a new day

What a difference a day makes. Seriously. Last night I went to bed early. Feeling lonely & a lil sad. I woke up, reminded myself it's a new day, went downstairs & everything was different.... I have no idea if the hubs reads my blog or not. I know he steals a couple glances here & there while I'm writing, but I don't know if he actually "reads" it or not. He has full permission to, I told him that right from the beginning that he could read it, I just didn't necessarily want to know that he read it. Anyways, coffee was made (meaning I slept in...a half hour more people, I'll take it!), & the morning went fairly smoothly & was, dare I say, calm. Sweet.

Then I sign into blogger. Holy Hell. I'm featured on FTLOB, I mean could the timing not be any better! Wow!! I screamed a lil & then hysterically  tried to explain to D what being featured meant. Lol! I think he said "I'm happy you're excited babe". Love. I had some amazing comments of support. Tingles. And the ahhhhmazing Vic left me my very own comment. The most wonderful comment. She had me in tears. It was the kinda connection I've been hoping for!!

Then, this afternoon I had a 3 hour nap!! Score. I can not tell you what a difference it made for me. Rest. I needed me some rest. That nap allows me more time to dig into my "when I have a freakin second" basket....
 Let's see...October's Cosmo...You're Not the Boss of Me, How to Brat Proof Your Child(lol), a book from my momma n law...Wy's baby book...What is turning into my new Fave Jodi Picoult book "nineteen minutes"....yummy dessert  recipes...a whole lotta yarn(working on the white ball, making a scarf for a beautiful friend), & a huge bucket of cinnamon hearts, my fave!

So, not exactly a fun post, but happier, right?! I'm working on something a lil fun though, wait for it:) Happy night, & Happy Monday:)

***I just popped over to Kelle Hamptons blog & she has the most beautiful, video up....

I was the same way when I found Vic had featured my blog as well! I felt very honored that someone thought that my blog deserved to be put as a feature! I look forward to stopping by and reading your blog more often.

I'm not sure if my husband reads my blog, but I do know that sleep can completely change my point of view and my attitude. I'm a firm believer that sleep can change almost everything.

Thanks for the follow!

I hate those yucky "blah" days. I'm glad this day was better for you. I need a 3 hour nap!
And thanks for the comment on my blog. I do watch one kid out of my home. This week is kind of wacky. I am watching my nephew and my friend's baby had surgery so I'm watching her older kids.
The boy I watch has a lot of difficulties but my only advice is that it gets better. If you need the money, I would stick to it. The boy I watch has gotten more used to us and therefore my discipline ways have become easier for him. It's been hard but stick to it if you can! I promise, itll get easier. Just get through this first month or two and you'll be grateful.
