You know it's time to change or tweak things a little when you are quick to get angry about the above broken chrome plated garden stool. If you look closely you can see that I did pick up the pieces and then glued the stool back together. I'll tell ya' what, putting the pieces back together of the stool were much easier than the pieces I had to pick up after making my little girl feel so bad about breaking the silly stool. That is why I am usually always thankful for a new day.
The days all start out the same way with all kids screaming for their vitamins. "Oh here it goes again", I thought. Another day to try and cross off the list. That is when I knew a little tweaking of the day needed to come into play. By golly, I was going to break free of the same old same old so I started with breakfast.....
No more hot cereal that is usually made by robot Mama. I busted out a brand new pancake recipe and served it in my fun aqua china.
At first I thought it was kind of funny to break out the china for just the kids and I, but oddly enough it made me feel a little better going against the norm and spicing things up. There was only one problem though and that was that the pancakes I made called for yogurt. I didn't have a problem with the yogurt itself but the trail of thoughts that followed...........
YOGURT....wait wasn't I going to learn how to make my own yogurt using the nifty yogurt maker I've had for a few years.....
Wait come to think of it wasn't I going to finish the below book for somebody that I think is just out of this world amazing........
I did say I was going to finish hanging the vintage hats in my craft room. We will just have to play with them instead for now. Seriously they didn't forget any of the details back then, did they?
Shoot I still haven't checked off the below from my list:
*Alter embroidered dress for myself & then don't forget to paint that chair.
*Make girls a new dress out of curtains from Goodwill and vintage trim.
I think I said on this very blog I was going to get to my cross-stitch project for the boys room? With the way things are going I made need more than the original year that I gave myself.
Have I ever mentioned my obsession with needlepoint, embroidery & cross-stitch? Just refer below. I couldn't believe my eyes when I saw the pillow with a B on it. That will be going on my son's bed that starts with a B for sure.
Oh & don't forget that I still need to finish the laundry room (that darn wallpaper). Projects, projects, shmojects. I'm letting go right now and focusing back on what really matters. Life would be so awesome though if I could live by the motto:
"Not quick to get angry but quick to get projects done"
Hey how come letting things go are easier said than done? You think I would have learned after 4.5 months of bed rest, a tag along friend named catheter for 1.5 months and 5 kids in 2.5 years. I guess I will have to just keep reminding myself about what really matters then.
At least I got most of my Christmas cards out last year. Well except this one apparently. Sorry Willis family but I just found your card in my car when I was cleaning it out.
