Have you ever....
...felt like you have it all together one moment and then the next feel like you're failing at everything?
...gone on a girls' weekend with girls you have never met before? Well, except 2 of them, you can read about last year's adventure here.
...have to explain to your kids that no, you're not mad and that your face just always looks that way. #restingbitchface
...had 8 hours of sleep and still have to take a nap the next day and somehow manage to still be exhausted by the time bedtime rolls around?
...not clean a bathroom just to be badass?
...regret not cleaning a bathroom the next day and do it anyway, forgetting your badass status?
...try to pack for a trip and somehow manage to hate EVERYTHING you own when you wardrobe is perfectly fine on a normal day.
...sat in the parking lot of the gym, contemplating going inside because you can't find a hair elastic and you really like your hair and makeup?
...crave authentic connections with real people?
...have a really great idea and then second guess yourself and end up dismissing it entirely?
...eat 4 chocolate chip cookies and consider going back for more?
...only want to eat popcorn and pancakes all day?
I may or may not have succumbed to
I am grateful that I have so much on my plate- it means I live a full life with great relationships, a fulfilling job, a wonderful creative outlet and a cute family to maintain.
I am grateful I "met" some wonderful women through blogging and that I get to spend this weekend with them in Las Vegas at a blogging conference (which may or may not take place at the mall) (okay, it's a real conference, with a real venue and real speakers but someone, get me to a mall)
I am grateful that my kids are so good at reading body language and are curious enough to want to know if I'm upset or not.
I am grateful I even got 8 hours of sleep, let alone a nap.
I am thankful I have a beautiful house to clean and a wonderful son who likes to pee everywhere BUT the toilet in the middle of the night. Okay, this one is impossible to turn into a positive. LEARN TO PEE, CHILD.
I am grateful for a strong body and the ability to talk myself into going to the gym, despite all the hurdles I create for myself.
I am thankful for this blog and all the crazy that comes with maintaining a social media presence, when I don't feel like being present some days.
I am grateful Willis can bake cookies and that they taste good.
The end. Monday grateful status achieved, I'm feeling better already. Have a fabulous day,
