My ideal schedule for the blog is to post one blog a day Monday through Friday and take the weekends off. I used to accomplish this with relative ease, but lately, this seems like an impossible task. For instance, I wanted to type this post up yesterday, but it just didn't happen. I took my son to a pool party for one of his friends when I got off work and by the time we got home, typing up a blog post was the last thing on my mind.
Life has been good lately. We've settled into a Summer routine, and aside from a couple of "incidents" my middle child has been an pure angel. Jerry and I took him to see the new Spider Man movie this past Friday night as a reward, and a good time was had by all. I think it's really important to spend alone time with each child, especially him. He shocked me the other night by telling me "Thank you" for something I did for him and then he said, "Can I get you anything, mommy?" Wow! What a difference a month makes.
It's been about a month ago since I wrote about hitting rock bottom in my life. I'm happy to report that things seem to be turning around for me. As I said above, my son is doing really good off his stimulant medication. His mood has really stabilized, and I'm hoping I will not have to put him back on it this school year. I've done much better about spending money, and my finances are looking better for it. There is one particular dress at Anthropologie that is haunting me, but I'm making myself hold off until next pay period to buy it. I hope it's still around then. It's pretty much sold out in all sizes right now. And, no I'm not going to tell you which dress it is because I don't want to call anyone else's attention to it, thank you very much. ;-) In addition, my mom has been really nice lately. I feel like our relationship is improving. Lastly, as always, Jerry has been my rock. When everything else in my life is topsy-turvy, he's there for me, never failing.
This is why last night was such a shock to me. I won't go into the details, but it was a rough night. I thought to myself in the middle of my mental downward spiral, "...and I was going to write about how great my life is right now. Ha!" Then, I stopped myself and thought, "One bad night does not a bad life make." You see, these are the types of things that have happened in the past that have put me in a funk for several days. I was determined to not let that happen this time. It would have been so easy to get pissed off and dig my hole deeper, but instead, I chose to forgive and forget and move on with my life. I'm a lover, not a fighter. Case in point: Just look at me hugging on that door up there.
