Mid-night Mishaps

What a day–ugh! That’s about all there is to say. I spent (what felt like) ALL day on the phone trying to get cable/internet setup here because my sister and I need to have it for work, getting the carpets first, and getting us a trash can–as we have a compost trash can & a recycling trash can but, not one for general garbage. Well, none of it worked out–not until my brother-in-law called the people to move things along. It was kind of ridiculous.

Well, ending the day wasn’t any better–I volunteered to make mac n cheese for my sister. Got it all made, baked it, and when it came out–I was putting Z to sleep. Well, Mr. says that it tastes different–sweet. That’s when I knew what I did because it wasn’t getting thick enough. So, round 2 tomorrow. But, it was a $#!++y way to end the day–that’s for sure.

Haven’t had work in the last two days–well, no article writing so, hoping that it’ll start flowing in next week, when my bosses gets the new company. Guess we’ll see. Well, now it’s time for some time with my hubby and a movie–we’re watching After Earth tonight.

Do you get date nights with your spouses? Or just some downtime?

I recommend Fire Proof! Such an amazing movie. & although our marriage is amazing right now, I am really considering doing the Love Dare to my husband, just as a growing experience for myself. But, we’ll see. I think it could be really beneficial for me. More to come about it later.

Hope you all have a good weekend–carpet should be getting fixed tomorrow so, going to do what I can to help my sister unpack and to unpack most of our stuff tomorrow–over living out of boxes.

Well, night readers–and fellow bloggers.

Blogging with a Purpose-Week 2

Well, took me a few extra weeks but, I believe I have figured out 10 things I can’t live without– 1-10 being my family, although, I figured that was cheating so…

(Not in order of importance.)

1) Family

This includes ALL my family–mom, sisters, my family angels–even if they aren’t pictured.

My mom raised me to be hardworking, believe in myself, independent, determined, & to always to my best.

2) Friends

My friends have been my second family, my employers, & my rock to lean on–without many of them, I wouldn’t be where I am today.

3) Writing

Here, I am free to express myself and get out everything that goes through my head when I have no one to talk to, I am able to grow, & currently, I am able to bring in a little extra income for my family.

4) Color

I am thankful for color as it brings more joy to life. We are able to see the changing colors and know that a season is coming or a peeking bud and know a flower is in bloom.

5) Sleep

I am able to recuperate & continue on with my day & enjoy our boys. I am able to be healthy & watch our boys grow & develop into amazing men, like their daddy.

6) My Marriage

Just months ago I would’ve said I was done, wasn’t going to care any more, & was going to find a job just so I could support the boys and me because I knew a divorce was on it’s way–not any more. My husband & I have been sticking through it all. We are stubborn and in love. We are both working hard on our marriage, the life we want, & taking care of our family. My husband has quit WoW. I have quit threatening him with divorce & been appreciating what he does more.

7) Food

Not for the obvious reasons but, because L & I have been cooking, he has been growing his independence and making his brother & him lunch. We have made muffins & brownies this week. & he helped me make hamburgers last night.

8) Medical Advances

I have glasses, have to be tested for PCOS, have 3 healthy boys, my husband is allergic to bees–as am I. & my body is screaming for a chiropractor soon.

9) Hot water/Laundry

I never appreciated hot water until my body was this sore & my clothes/myself would smell so horribly.

10) Human touch/intimacy

Holding my son, cuddling our older boys, snuggling up to my husband at night–they all keep me going. They let me know I am safe, loved, & help keep me warm.

All of these make my life so much better–shelter, heat, etc., they make it too but, these are the key things in life I could not live without.
