An Irish Blessing

Many people sent me Irish blessings and wisdom today. It was great reading all the kind words. Waking up to two inches of snow was a mean trick, my daughter said that is what the Leprechauns did to us! So sweet- I had to motivate the house today as we were planning to attend the South Side Irish Parade. It did not snow there so that was a huge plus. As I got ready to head out for our adventure today one could only hope we would find a four leaf clover to bring us some unexpected luck today—

The parade was nice, my daughter loved it, collected lots of crap candy and beads. Two hours went by and I was ready to head home. Another “holiday” gone by…. the years go by to fast. …..

A day with Mom

Having your Birthday a week before your Mother’s has it’s advantages. As an adult now, I love celebrating with her by spending an afternnon together doing something we both enjoy. This year we hit the spa. In years past we have gone to a play, had lunch, gone shopping, or to a show. This year I thought I would be adventorous and try a new place. There are times you just gotta stick to the places you know. The place was not the 10 stars I am used to. There was no class to the place and it could use a good housekeeper. I do not like to talk badly about people so I will stop there—- Let’s just say I will not be recommending it to anyone nor will I ever go back. But Mom and I made the best of it and enjoyed the sunshine God gave us today !!!

Refreshed and Ready

Ready to start the day. Typically it is tough to sleep. Lots of tossing and turning, waking up to the bladder calling me to the washroom…I do not do well the next day when I do not get enough sleep. I am sure I am not alone in this battle. Today is different- today I was not woken up in the middle of the night or from tossing and turning. I got a full nights rest ( or so ) and I an ready to take on the challenges of today. As I had extra time today to take in a news cast I see the topic of the day is women and stress. Stress….UGHH something that ravishes my body frequently, no way to escape it in today’s world. The tasks that come our way and the lack of time to deal with them is an up hill battle. Even as I type this entry I have the endless list in my head of the things that must get done today. How do you deal..how do you get it all done. Impossible on most days.

Rays of Sunshine….

The smell of wet pavement greeted me as I left for work today- The birds were chirpping and my daughter said ” It smells like Spring Mom” Brought a smile to my face. It was a very peacefull drive into work today thinking of what my day was going to be like knowing there are parent meetings to attend and team collabs to complete. Did I mention today is a 12 hour day as we also have Parent Conferences !!! Ugggh. Big Smile.

The kids were here half day- CHECK, no emergencies took place today. Parents are beginning to arrive — here’s to a great evening CHEERS

Calm

The day is calm, the air is warm, there is much quiet in the air. I can hear myself think for once. How long will this feeling last? Boy I hope I can get something done and not be distracted by all the hot messes that come my way- I am greatful, thank you god for this moment. A day to reflect on that brought some peace to the week. Geeeee I hope this continues into the weekend.

Is it over yet….

And the day comes to an end…. My thoughts on things today make me want to break out in song…..Problem is so many come to mind! HA. I guess the fact I can laugh about it well crack a smile more or less is a positive. The day sucked. Nothing more I can say then that.

Tomorrow is a new day. The weather is getting warmer, I feel the winter is finally letting go and the sunshine shall soon be taking over. Everything is better when you add sunshine to it ! Not my best entry as I have to much in my head and not able to put a good thought together today- I’ts just that. Looking forward to a new day…

Reflection….

It was not as I thought- All the time I spent stressing about “what if” ” what will” was for nothing this past weekend. Anxiety is an awful thing to deal with. I am greatful it is something that does not have a huge hold on me in life but I do have some situations that will come up from time to time and the damn anxiety will make me perseverate on that ick issue or situation. It’s not fun, there’s no magical pill to take to help you get past it as for me it is something I need to work through on my own and in my own way—

I am Greatful-

I am Blessed-

I am Loved-

It was a HUGE success…..

Today was my child’s Birthday party with slight nerves of what may go wrong……..Keeping the kids amused is always a worry, will they like the activity, will they like the food you are serving…who is going to not show at the last minute…Typical things you worry about right ? I’m happy to say all went well today ! Sad in a way, where has the time gone?

I say this more than once a year about things, “you can’t get that time back” watching your child grow and having the birthdays go by is one way that statement reminds me just how fast times does go by. Sad. Happy. Exciting, Proud. Happy Mom… Love fills my heart today ! Kiss Kiss Roo Bug !

What a wet day…

So today I had high hopes that we were going to have a 50 degree day. NOPE not hte case. The rain came around Noon and stayed the entire day. This did not stop me from enoying the day of events that was in front of me and my daughter.. First tunmbing. Check- Then off to have a birthday lunch with family and enjoy some Irish festiviteis- Check. Then off to a Birthday party– Check—…..

I thing that is enough for one day but now the evening is here and there is still a few things left to do. Visiting with friends from out of town. With all of this going on who has time to think about the ick weather that has hit today and left the sun behind.

I look forward to the warm weather ahead, I just hope if comes sooner than later.. More tomorrow
