No more "Woe is me"

I'm feeling very much in the mood for a "pity party" over here, but I don't really have the time to be posting and even less time to be dwelling on all of the frustrations of the day. Instead I am jotting down a few things I am grateful for today in a hope of getting over it.

Gratitude to change my Attitude
1. I'm grateful that it is April 8 and baby goat isn't in the hospital, unlike last year.
2. I'm grateful that I have a flexible job so I can stay home when my son is sick.
3. I'm grateful for a husband who willingly stays home with said sick baby last night so I can still go to the Bon Jovi concert.
4. I am grateful for Bon Jovi, Bon Jovi's jeans and the collective singing of a stadium full of people.
5. I'm grateful that I have my blog and lots of online and IRL friends who support me when life seems difficult.
6. I'm grateful for Easter candy and diet coke.
7. I'm grateful that tomorrow is another day to try this again.

Bon Jovi? Jealous!

I'm grateful you posted another blog. I love reading your posts.

Also, how did the no multi-tasking thing go for you? I keep meaning to ask.

Funny! I've had a pretty similar week, and it's SO easy to go into pity party mode. Glad you got to have some Bon Jovi fun!

After a Lent without dessert, I definitely am with you on the Easter candy thing. :) I hope you have an awesome weekend. You deserve a little R&R. :)

Yeah 'cuz I'm watching that 'pity party' stuff and you need to just flush that talk down the pot. Enough. And enough and enough.

You are a million times over better than all that self-pity. You are the daughter of a King, and don't ever forget that.
