My life is good. Wonderful, actually, all things considered. My children are healthy and smart and caring and kind (most days). We have wonderful friends and family that surround us, if not in person, on the phone. My children have the opportunity to have two sets of wonderfully adoring grandparents and even have a set of great-grandparents.
Yesterday we had lobster, steamers, corn on the cob - FREE. My Great Aunt turned 60 and her husband threw a surprise birthday party at a local seafood restaurant...and he paid for it ALL. Everything. If nothing else, I should be glowing right now because of that :)
After eating WAY TOO MUCH, we took the kids fishing. Andrew, who has the attention span of a flea, caught his very first fish (pictures to come)! A blue gill - HUGE. He was so proud. That makes me happy...but I am still feeling a bit funky.
I have a wonderful business. I love my boss, she is THE BEST (have I mentioned that I am the boss :). I make my own schedule, I charge whatever I want...I never miss a kid's event because I am always sure to take it off.
And things between Kirby and I are working. Slowly but surely we are finding a way to make things work - better than ever. Our trip to camp was exactly what we needed to remind us that, us, the family of us, was something that we didn't want to lose. It is a long road. There are millions of things to work out and work on. But we are committed to the work. We are committed to making it better for us and better for our kids.
Just one more think I should be so grateful and thankful for.
So, why am I in such a funk? I am not feeling like myself. In fact, I feel kind of fluish...and the fact that I know there is bug going around makes me feel even more fluish (paranoid much....but really Andrew DID puke yesterday on the way to the birthday party...but free lobster was on the menu, no way in hell were we turning around). I am feeling that, "I don't want to get out of bed for the next year" feeling...
So, I am leaving it up to you, bloggy readers, to share something funny. Pass along a good story. Leave me a silly comment. Get a good You Tube video (but just an FYI, I HAVE already seen the one where the cop steals the pot from the evidence room then calls 911 because he thinks he has overdosed...to stinking funny and I have also seen the one where the guy gets his head stuck in the elephants ass).
Today's challenge: MAKE ME LAUGH!
