Day 5

Today was a good day... I really shouldn't post on how patient I have been until at least the day is over lol but I figured I better do it now while I am in a good mood :) A very good friend sent me this today from (Thanks Sara) and it made me chuckle

"I have no regrets about anything. Every decision I have made in my life has ended up being a
good one even if at the time it was not. I learned from my mistakes and did not pine away my future by beating myself up over past mistakes. None of us are perfect and the sooner we understand this and quit punishing ourselves for this lack of perfection the better off we will all be. Perfectionism keeps us stuck in the past so we are unable to function in the present. Let's take that perfectionism bat your are beating yourself up with on a daily basis and use it to hit home runs. Each time you see perfectionism throwing you a curve ball; turn it around and hit it back to where it belongs; Out of sight and out of mind! Perfectionism is the Body Clutter we all have to face."

Now where did I put that bat????

I got the privilege of having our 3 year old granddaughter today. Yesterday Mommy took over 3 hours to get home from work and this little munchkin HATES to be in the carseat for more then a couple of minutes so it was not a pleasant drive home. I offered to take her so if traffic was bad again our DIL at least was able to do it without too much hassles

So this morning we got all bundled up and dug out the tobaggan and went to go visit her auntie and cousin. Then after a bit they got all dressed up and we all went for a long walk. Who would have thought that a 3 year old and a 2 year old would have weighed soooooo much?? I am sure I won't have to worry about that excess skin hanging from my underarms anymore as I sure built up my triceps and biceps hauling them around through the snow.

But now I hurt like heck from back spasms and Papa just got home so I am going to take some pain killers and go for a nap! I put a selection of small goals on the fridge door to work on while working on my patience levels. One of them was to be patient with Keith at dinner time when my nerves are shot and he asks me if dinner is ready. So now every day at dinner time Keith comes up to me and gently asks if I still have one nerve left lolol. I guess he thinks as long as I have one left it's ok to ask if dinner is ready :)
