I have found myself needing to congratulate myself on any small (or not so small) victories I have of late. I've dropped several balls and disappointed some loved ones lately. I don't think berating myself will help. One night I made a list of my fails. But when I compared it to my list of successes, they were both equally impressive. I figure I'll be happier if I focus on all the good things I did. Can you believe I actually cleaned my living room blinds. Whoa! Where did that come from. I understand that some people do that on a regular basis and thus only need to lightly dust their blinds to clean them. Um, yeah, I do that every three years or so, so there is water and scrubbing involved. Go me!
this article in the paper recently that talked about adventure playgrounds in which "free play" is the order of the day. Not a lot of structured play, rather a lot of junky raw materials and the kids are free to have at it to build or create whatever they fancy. I love it. Our garage is kind of like that. If you can find it and think of something cool to do with it, then go for it. Note the danger of knives left lying around the floor. Does that make you feel better about sending your child over to our house to play?
Oh, there were tears. I mean, I did save $15, but it wasn't really worth it.
Announcement! Announcement! Last night Peter slept completely through the night. We're talking 8:30 pm to 6:45 am. Glory Be!
