I'm not big on boasting. But sometimes it feels good to toot your own horn.
SO, despite the fact that my laundry room is so full of dirty laundry you can barely walk in there, and that I'm not very good at encouraging my kids to make their beds and I procrastinate unpleasant tasks, and I am a perpetual piler... and I could fill a post with things about me that need improvement
HERE is what's going on that's good in my life.
I got up at 5am and made my kids pancakes and bacon for breakfast today.
Yesterday I made a Manahattan Fish Chowder (with haddock and shrimp) that was A-MAZING.
(and I didn't even mind that my house smelled like fish)
I laughed out loud when, upon rousing my last child from bed this morning, she told me that in the middle of the night, her room mate was heard to say, in a very sweet and swooning tone, while sleeping:
"Oh Daddy, I love you; MMOOOoooooooooo!"
I cleaned my closet.
I called my parents.
I wrote my missionary.
This morning, in the rain, I ran my third consecutive MILE, without stopping to gasp for air.
I have eaten almost a complete package of Bob's Red Mill 100% Whole Grain 10 Grain Hot Cereal.
All 1 LB 9 oz by myself.
I have not forsaken the sacred tradition of breakfast dessert. This morning I had a large bowl of vanilla ice cream sprinkled generously with Rice Krispies (why bother with milk and/or sugar?)
AND, today I get to have lunch with 125 kindergarten kids.
