Day 25--Perspective

I'm in a little bit of a slump.

The whole "you finished your food challenge hoorah" is over.  I'm tired of cooking 3 meals a day but I'm so please with the weight loss success that I'm not sure what else to do.  Must find more recipes!

My house is a mess.  I feel like we just have so much stuff!  It's time to get rid of things.  But who comes to a garage sale in November?

Blogging 25 days in a row has taken a lot of energy and time.  I'm glad to push myself.  I'll be glad to finish!

I feel inspired to be organized and intentional.  I need a nap.

Currently I have a 4x4 hole in the ceiling of my kitchen, a leak in my roof and a back porch that needs replacing.  I'm already tired of having workmen in my house and they haven't even started.  Having an old house is great but needing all these repairs is not.

I haven't started Christmas shopping yet...usually I am almost finished by now.  Sigh.

When I have a pity party day like this it's time to start taking stock of my blessings.  I'm quite sure they will outweigh my frustration!

--Did you see this post?  Is my kid cute or what?

--The Little Guy asked me for breakmast this morning.  Love!

--We got a GREAT deal on a BOB Duallie and I took it out for a spin today.  It was awesome!

--Our sweet adopted grandparent neighbors are going to take care of the dog for us while we go home for Christmas.  So thankul!

--They also gave me the cutest little pjs and an outfit for the baby for Halloween.  Just because.

--I have about 8 pairs of pants that fit for the first time in over 2 years.  Score!

--I got some GREAT deals on clothes for my new nephew this week.  This furthers my desire to become a professional baby clothes shopper.

--Parent's magazine sent me another Gymboree coupon.  Yay!!

--I have 2 new recipes to try this weekend.

--I have a girl's night tomorrow night!!

--Did I mention we get to go home for Christmas??

--And how about those mercies....new every morning?  That's pretty awesome too.

Sometimes a little perspective is all you need!!
