I figure it's close enough to Monday to actually post this...its not like I've had it written for hours :) If you want to see more confession posts check out MckMama's weekly Not Me Monday Carnival of fun-ness
I did not just watch as my baby boy climbed up onto his booster, reached over the tray and dangled into the seat harvesting every single little cheerio that he had dropped - of course I picked him up so he wouldn't fall and gave him fresh cheerios.
I certainly did not bribe my toddler to let me get him dressed in the morning, using a cookie.....more than once this week.
I did not take a walk in the sleet to finally get pictures of my street in the snow. This was not after venturing once again to walmart in the snow and sleet so I could get some necesities and hopefully a pair of snow pants for Tommy. I was not horribly disgusted at Walmart for only carrying girls snowpants - I did not for a moment consider buying Tommy the bright red obviously made for a little girl pants out of desparation. I did not also consider buying him another snow jacket with red on it just so I could somehow excuse the girls snow pants.
I did not get absurdly excited when I found an incredible etsy store that has the most amazing fabric. I am not throwing myself into sewing and trying to figure out everything I can do!! I did not completely blow our budget recently buying lots of pretty fabric.
Well tomorrow I return to work - I am definitely not looking forward to it. I am going to miss my time at home, my time being around for my family. I am very motivated now to find a new job, I am determined to find something that will allow me to be home more!!
But here, now, instead of dwelling on the fun I'll miss at home, I will revel in the beauty that is the outside world today. I will marvel at how blessed I am to live in such a beautiful area, to have a 4 wheel drive vehicle that allows me to traverse our unplowed street, and that I have had the option, all weekend, to come and go as I pleased.
Seriously who gets to live here?!
