A Little Honesty

Today is one of those days.
One of those days.
When I wanted to be the one driving off.
In my car.
By myself.
With only the sounds of silence.
To a job away from home.
With adult conversation.

The little boys have been fighting.
A lot.
Jobe is almost 3.
WAY worse than the 2's.
Still trying to potty train.
Ryan is gone the next two and a half days.
On a business trip.
My computer is on its last life.
I can't seem to keep my house clean.
My back is killing me.
Whine, whine, whine.Turn it around.
My kids are healthy.
My husband has a good job.
And works hard for us.
My computer is working today.
Only had to restart it 5 times...
To do this post.
I have a place to live.
I have much more than some.
(That would be why I can't keep the house clean.)
My back will get better.

I will choose to look for the blessings.

Oh Gina - I understand where you're coming from! I stay at home with our four children too...and love it....most days! :) I have two in school and two at home. Today I'm wishing for my youngest two to take 7 hour naps! (HA HA!) But - I too am blessed beyond measure. Thanks for the reminder!

As much as I love my kids, I will be soooooo grateful for the day I don't have to listen to them fighting anymore. It's just the worst!!
