Terrific Tuesday

Tuesday, November 19, 2013

Thanks for all the kind responses to my last post. Today is much better. After i got home, my husband said his 'back' was feeling better. Yeah- that's his story and he is sticking with it. Not my conscience. emoticon

So pretty uneventful and predictable work evening, just the basics on communicating with my husband, going over the weeks chores appointments and schedules, helping DD with her homework. He made his juices for the day, and I cooked a stir fry. It is pretty liberating that I dont have to consult with him anymore on what to prepare, I make whatever my daughter and I feel like. As long as is healthy, of course. ;) emoticon

And I did my C25K run, and that was good. Except my MP3 player was acting up, so I need to switch it out and use the other one next time. But I did good, 2 weeks in a row off to a good start! Wed will be next, which I wont miss because DH takes the child to her cheer practice so I have NO EXCUSES! I signed up for the DONE GIRL challenge, but getting 180min in will take some planning, because my zumba girl is on hiatus til the New Year.

Also RSVP'd to come to my aunts on Thanksgiving, we have had our little Thanksgiving at our house for the last several years, because my husband wanted it to be 'our' tradition. Personally, 'my' tradition before I met him was going to my aunts, but I have gone along to please him. He loves to make the bird, so that helps. but since he is still only juicing, he has agreed that it would be pointless for me to fix a turkey for me and DD alone (ya think?) Need to thank God for small miracles too, I guess. emoticon I so excited to be going, its been 7 years or something. They invite us every year and she mails a really cute handmade invitation card and everything. I'm going to bring sweet potatoes and a Pumpkin Roll I'm ordering from my work cafeteria. I'm really looking forward to it. I told my aunt too that I was feeling blue about the birthday and she said we could celebrate it at T-Giving if I wanted and i said-"I wouldnt stop you if that's what you wanted to do." emoticon It really has not be awesome turning 40 so far, so I really cheered me up that she said that. Bless her heart, I know no one can really help me with the struggles I have in my marriage. And I feel really alone sometimes, without a mom and all that. emoticon

So- Just For Today: I will be happy. This assumes to be true what Abraham Lincoln said, that "Most folks are as happy as they make up their minds to be."

So true, so true.......

Also: Just For Today I will adjust myself to what is and not try to adjust everything to my own desires. I will take my 'luck' as it comes and fit myself to it.

Sometimes we encounter opposition or roadblocks on our journey and that's normal. If you are running into some bumps in the road, just keep moving forward. Don't let them slow you down too much.
