The Goods and the Bads

Today’s goods and bads — listed in no particular order:

The Goods

  • The weather!  It’s cool and crisp!  And dry!
  • It’s Friday!  I love the weekends when my kids are home with me.
  • I had a sweet time with friends on Wednesday of this week!  Love that we take the time to do that!
  • I got to hang out with Paul yesterday.  Granted, it was just us running a page of errands together.  But it was TIME TOGETHER nonetheless.
  • A friend is helping me with my impossible schedule in the morning.
  • Chloe finally has the right size diapers again!  Life is good!
  • God is still God!  And tomorrow — He’ll still be God!
  • I have a neighbor who loves us and helps us all the time!!  We love her!
  • The boys have been loving playing in the backyard everyday!  Love fall!
  • We got some fun movies to watch together while Dad is out of town.
  • I got paid for the first time in over 10 years!!  I started doing some childcare at my church when needed.  My first paycheck:  $11.09.  🙂
  • I’ve gotten good reports from Chloe’s teachers.
  • YOU — sharing your time with me!
  • Cookies and Cream Milkshakes from Chick-fil-a.
  • I did Chloe’s hair and fed her breakfast everyday this week before the bus picked her up!!
  • The amount of clothes you can buy a 10-year-old at Walmart for $100!
  • Listening to my boys sing Mighty to Save at the tops of their lungs while Chloe is hollering at me to turn it “UP!”

The Bads

  • The hoops you sometimes have to jump through to get medicine for you child!!  Ugh!
  • Chloe’s current AFOs — her ankle braces.  We are having such a horrible time with them right now!!
  • My laziness!  I have much to do and haven’t done any of it!
  • Paul is out of town for the weekend, and the boys have football/soccer games at the exact same time tomorrow — across town from each other!
  • The fact that it took me a month to get approval to get diapers in the next size up for Chloe!  Ridiculous!
  • I haven’t been doing a good job at Chloe’s home program for physical therapy.
  • The laundry keeps mulitplying!!
  • My backyard is MUDDY!
  • I still have the crud that I’ve had for 5 weeks!!!  And I got the “virus” diagnosis which means just deal with it!
  • My camera is still missing.
  • The resale shop only accepted 10% of the stuff I dropped off to them this week.  They think my junk is junk apparently.
  • The cost of batteries!  Chloe loves all things electronic, musical, and push-button!  There goes my whole paycheck!!
  • Not sleeping well at night!!
  • Having to miss an awesome women’s night at church because Paul works nights.
  • Having nothing to feed my crew for dinner tonight.  Hmmmm.  Anyone want to go out??  That wouldn’t be BAD!

    Aww…love this post. My girls love to sing Might to Save at the top of their lungs as well. They actually have awesome hand motions they came up with. We will have to get together so they can share their dance moves to the song!
