I am so lucky

I don't say this enough, but its true.  It is easy for me to focus on the negative sometimes.  I don't want to but it is glaring in front of me.  The weight I want to lose, the cleaning that needs doing, the stress of the job, the lack of the moo-lah.  But the fact of the matter is that I am so very very lucky and blessed.

Yesterday Mr. Goat and I celebrated 7 years since our wedding.  In a way I can hardly believe that it has been 7 years, but the math doesn't lie.  I still think it was one of the best things I've ever done.  The week of my anniversary often has me running around crazy with VBS at work so I was also lucky to get out to celebrate with Mr. Goat twice in two days.

On Sunday Grandma and Sister Goat came up to watch baby goat and Mr. Goat and I went out to Bridge league.  We hadn't been in nearly a year and it was so good to work together and play some cards. And for having such a long break we did very well!  We ended up getting 3rd of 8 E/W couples and 5th of 16 total.  Not too shabby!  We even had time to go out for dinner afterwards.

Yesterday we took baby goat with us and had a family dinner at Champs.  It was 1/2 price burger day so we were able to eat cheaply and it was just a fun family time.  We also had some cheesecake once baby goat went to bed!

It was a lovely two days and combined with a fun playdate and a free Saints game this weekend I am feeling very very lucky to be where I am in my life.  I have a husband and son I love and that means more to me than any of the negatives or stress I may be feeling!

Congratulations on your anniversary. Wow! Seven years!

Also, Hans and I have decided that Emily has to get married on August 14th. That way we'll all only be a month apart (May 14th would work too). :P
