Today my sister Janae asked me if I had blogged yet, I said no, and she asked why not? Well, because I couldn't think of anything momentous to blog about! Those words were just stuck in my head, and reminded me of Elizabeth Barclay. (one of our ancestors on mom's side). She was a pioneer that traveled by wagon from Pennsylvania to Kansas. We are so very lucky that she kept a journal! Often if she thought nothing great happened that day she would write, "nothing of importance". My mother and I have often wished that she had written whatever mundane thing happened, because to us it would have been fascinating! So here is my mundane day, and a few Easter pictures that I finally manged to down load!
Today was rather challenging to my nerves and mental health. I had been meaning to put some of Spencer's old clothes on ebay to sell. I have been procrastinating doing it for a while now, and said enough procrastinating. So while I tried to get that all done I had a young baby not at all happy with the lack of attention, and the toddler was even less enthused saying..."need ttention mama!" So that was rather challenging getting that done with the youngins under foot!
Spencer made a pathetic attempt at passing off a "book report", and had to go back and try to do better! (which he did)
Rose decided that the onions in the cupboard looked rather tasty, and had onion breath for most of the afternoon.
So basically in a nutshell that was our day.
On these challenging days I think it is important for me to remember my blessings. Like a husband who really loves me. That my children are healthy. That I am losing weight and getting healthier. That I have a great supportive extended family, and that I have a safe home to raise my children in. And last but not least, this nice hot mug of peppermint tea, sitting right in front of me.
