Today I woke up tempted to not choose Joy..thanks to Pete and a 4 mile run I was able to make that very hard decision to be joyful.

Maybe I found it hard this morning because I went to bed last night and I had one of those nights where I laid there and thought of all the things that had been bugging me about EVERYBODY and I let it take over my mind...It went something like this..."I can't believe when I first saw her she said this to me. Why didn't I say something to her?? Is my life as mom over because I did not address this situation immediately??.  Next time I'm gonna let her have it....I'm gonna say..... (insert NOTHING productively said here)...."

....and on and on it went.  Why do I allow myself to think this way sometimes??  Don't we all make mistakes??  Aren't we all just a bit shy of being perfect...why can't I allow this in others when it is clearly in ME???

Oh well...I am proud to report that upon much thinking, by 9:00...I was on the right way of thinking...I remembered all I had to be grateful for.  So many things...

What else have I done this month of silence...

1.  I made my first Halloween costume.  I was so excited about it I wondered why I had waited so long to create something so adorable (see above owl).

2.  I made cream cheese frosting for the first time....another wonder why I have not made something so simply amazing...it should be smothered on EVERYTHING....

3.  Emily turned 12.  Which means I have been a mom for 12 years.  I may have cried thinking it was all almost over.  I may have felt like part of my life was quickly coming to an end..then Drew pooped and I was reminded I have 18 more GLORIOUS years....

4.  Molly broke her wrist.  Third time Molly has broken a bone.  Poor Molly.

5.  I have knit several things and need pictures.  I used owl yarn from Quince and was SUPER happy!!! Surprise surprise...

6.  Emily has started basketball for her middle school and loves it...first game is soon.

7.  Jack and Lucy started swimming.  Lucy LOVES is...Jack tolerates it.  He BEGGED me to start him.  I was not that excited about being at the pool 3 days a week.  It's hot in there...super crowded and Drew is almost 2...so there.  But with these dark, rainy days a young 7 year old boy needs to burn some energy.

8.  I am going somewhere fancy Saturday...yippy
