Today is a laid back day. I have already walked 4 miles and I am taking a break from cleaning the house to eat some Cheerios and blog. I am so grateful that I started this blog. I am so grateful for all the thoughtful, caring, funny, insightful and inspirational comments left to me. I wish I could bottle all the love and concern I feel from you guys and bottle it. I could sell it and make a million bucks.

Things on the kid front are back to normal. I am really learning alot about myself lately. I have been having some emotional growing pains. It happens. I really do believe that everything in my life, the good the bad and the ugly, has made me into the person that I am becoming... (note: that means I am a work in Forgiveness doesn't mean we forget, it means we learn how to deal. Some days we deal better then others. I am grateful that as a family, we are quite aware of this. Bottom line is we do respect each other. As individuals, and as family members...and the part we all play in this crazy little family of mine.

I am going to go clean the bathrooms. I can't put it off any longer. When I get pissy about cleaning the toilets I always tell myself at least I've got a pot to pee in. Get grateful with a quickness. Then I am off to see the movie "Up". No grandkids this time, I want to enjoy this movie. Then maybe a nap and some reading. I am reading Losing Mum and Pup. It's a book written by William F. Buckley's son about the last year of his parents lives. It is sweet and funny, and an honest look at taking care of an elderly parent. I never knew much that about him. I would recomend it.

Have a good Saturday......


  1. You have such a good perspective on things - love your "pot to piss in" analogy!

    Hope you have a wonderful day - you deserve it!

  2. Sounds like a good book and a good plan for a relaxing day. I wish I could do that! (go to a movie, nap, then read) But my hubby and kids wouldn't dare let that happen ;) Oh well, maybe in 10 years or so. LOL Enjoy it!

  3. Sounds like you are having a good day. I really want to see Up.
    That books sounds good too.

  4. Up is a great movie. It made me cry quite a bit, though.

  5. A great way to spend a day - and Cheerios!

  6. saw UP yesterday.
    want to see it again.
    My daughter (3) was terrified (?) so I missed half the movie.
    Need to rewatch and reSEE the declutteringtips :)


  7. Got that book for my husband for Father's Day. Glad to know it's a good one. Hope you enjoyed the movie and had a great weekend.

  8. Sounds like you're having a relaxing weekend :) Enjoy the rest of the weekend too!!

  9. Sounds like a great day! I love days like that.

  10. I tried that method trying to be thankful about having a pot to pee in when I dread claening the toilet...but then I started thinking...."a clean pot to pee in or a dirty pot to pee in...what difference does it make?" haa haa haa. Ok, ok ok...I do clean my toilets!


Tell me what you think!
