10 Points

Guess what Devin said today when he got home from work and saw that I was still in the middle of making dinner and that 2 of our 3 kids were crying and that the toy room was a mess and that I was pretty much completely frazzled...

He said, "What can I do to help?"

Did you guess that?  10 points if you did.  He got about 100 points for saying it.

Yeah, he is amazing.  It was so wonderful that he offered to help instead of criticizing for dinner not being done or anything else he might mention.

There have been a few instances when he walked in and the first words he said to me were something like, "Why does the house smell weird?" or, "Did you make sure the cereal was on sale before you bought it?" or, my favorite, "What did you do all day?" (Men, take note:  that last one is seriously the worst thing a man can say when he gets home to his wife and house full of kids.)

It is unbelievable the difference it makes when the first words he speaks are kind.

Prepping for Thanksgiving

I don't like how Thanksgiving is basically forgotton or overshadowed by Christmas.  Don't get me wrong, I LOVE Christmas.  But I feel like the poplulation in general needs a holiday to focus on being thankful for what we have because it is easy to forget.  I think it would be better if we moved Thanksgiving to sometime in September when there aren't any other holidays around so people could really celebrate.  Then, we could get out our Christmas trees weeks before December 25 and no holiday would be overlooked.  That's what I say we should do.

As Thanksgiving is approaching, I recalled an experience I had last year...

In my attempt to prep Jaxon for Thanksgiving I asked him what he was thankful for.  His response?


How ironic.

I'm training for a marathon and a part of me wishes I didn't sign up.  I want to run another one to get a faster time, but I am just so busy with 3 kids and trying to work on this website and my Etsy shop, the burden of training is just one more thing to add to the pile.  I guess it is good I have an event to train for or else I wouldn't be making the time to exercise.  And I do love running.  It's my sanity time.

I started my Etsy to create some income.  I guess there's no reason to pretend like it is something else.  We have student loan debt I want to pay off and our standard monthly income is not enough to pay the debt off as fast as I want to.  For the shop to be successful I have to have products.  Making products takes time.  I just feel like I don't have enough time!

Anyway, just having a crazy day and needed to take a break to write:)
