After yesterday's post, I feel a driving need to be positive today. 

I have been fighting a cold the last 3 days.  It's got a nasty cough, that when I lay down to sleep, I can hear it rattle in my chest.  Literally, I can hear it as I breathe.  I cough until I almost throw up.  So, what's positive about that?  I have kept exercising, for one.  I haven't been going as hard as I was, because to do so, induces a fit of coughing that triggers my gag reflex.  My co-ordination isn't great, I think because of the medication I have been taking to try and sleep at night.  But, after all that, I am still going.  I only skipped one part of an exercise, my 15 minute ab routine.  My abs thanked me later.

I still haven't gotten my tax stuff together.  Oh, I have it physically together, in a giant bag, full of every scrap of paper I have found over the past year and though might be useful for tax time.  Or even flyers and other things that I just didn't feel like throwing out.  But, on the bright side, I figure the longer it takes me to sort through it, the later I will get my tax return and that means that I will have that much more to use towards Sebastian's school in September!

Umm...let's see, what else is good today?  I cleaned out the van, and got a bag of garbage.  I wiped it down with a vinegar/water mix, so now it smells good.  I just need to vacuum and get it washed and we will be all good.

Morph is getting really good at taking his needles.  This morning he even jumped up on the bed when he was done eating, and didn't hide.  Made both our mornings that much better.

Sebastian's room is pretty clean.  Sawyer's is no where close, but it will be by the end of day tomorrow.

Geoff has set himself a chore schedule.  That makes me really happy.  It means he is really listening.

I found the head for my mop today.  It was washed and put away, I just didn't know where.  So my floors got mopped, which is always nice.

I am going out with friends tonight.  Should be fun.  I don't know what I am going to do about my diet.  I have been visualizing all week, trying to plan on how to avoid and resist the nacho bar.  Geoff is in my corner, and as long as he can help me resist without making me feel like an idiot, we are all good.  I don't know what I am going to wear, but whatever it is, it will be comfortable. :)

The snow that fell last night was very pretty.  It's gone now, replaces with cold, March sunshine.  My daffodils and hyacinths are blooming.  I think I will cut some tomorrow.

My sister in law dropped off beautiful orange flowers for me.  Yes, they are from a funeral, but I don't care.  They have birds of paradise and other beautiful orange flowers that look lovely in my living room.

We started organizing the kids toys in the basement.  Beginning of the purge, I feel it coming, and it's a big one!! (Well, if I have any say in it, it will be big.  Geoff is still resistant.)  This week will be a Value Village week for sure. 

Tomorrow is April.  Yeah.

See, positive.  Good thoughts.  There are some rocky waters ahead, and I want to keep all the positive and happy things that I can near and dear to me. 

Have a good one, everyone!

  1. I picked those ones especially out of the large group left over because they remind me of your colours. In life, your wedding, your home, who knows...they are just 'your colours' to me.

    And from my stand point, you were getting a daily, hourly abs work out with all the coughing so you still did your abs portion and then some!!
