Turns Out, Life is Pretty Darn Good

Our day got off to a pretty pathetic start this morning...I stayed up too late, had bad dreams, which is crazy for a girl like me who never even remembers my dreams, had to deal with a clogged toilet this morning after electrical issues last night, boys woke up fussy and fighting over me, breakfast was a disaster, the boys wouldn't let me do my workout, I started feeling very sorry for myself, it was getting ugly...

So I did what always works for me.  I got out the dumbells and very quickly kicked my own butt following the best body fitness workout for the day before hitting the pavement with the jogging stroller to meet up with some other MOPS moms at the park.  The fresh air, sunshine, and exercise was the magic potion I needed.  It was just what the doctor ordered!  We all returned home after a couple hours with a much better attitude and these lovely photos...

How cute are they?  I am so glad we didn't surrender to our bad day.  It was so good to get out and play and on top of it all, Elizabeth takes the BEST photos.

She even got a shot of me with Colton.  I never get anything but self-portraits these days and I'm really terrible at those so I'm really grateful for this candid shot.  Isn't she a fantastic photographer?!

There's light at the end of the tunnel... The toilet is unclogged and got a good cleaning too as a bonus.  The electrician is coming this afternoon so I should have a porch light back this evening.   I got a fantastic workout in today and ran the bridge for the first time in over 6 weeks.  My core is healing.  I'm trying out a recipe for eggplant "fries" with our dinner tonight.  I found out about an awesome Joyce Meyer app that I plan on incorporating into my day since I need all the help I can get on keeping my focus where it needs to be.   I have fantastic kiddos and an amazing husband who makes me so proud of him.  I have some really amazing friends.  The bills are paid.  We have delicious, nutritious food to eat AND I have a bottle of wine I will definitely be opening tonight.  Turns out, life isn't so bad after all.  In fact, it's pretty awesome.  Sometimes...ok, alot of times, I just need to be reminded of how good it is.  What do you do when you need a pick me up?
