Oh Monday. I hate Mondays… especially Monday morning. I hate forcing myself out of bed. I hate trying to get motivated. I hate watching Colby walk out the door.
My fancy washing machine broke last week. I might have to load up two weeks of laundry and take it to my mom’s house to wash. The thought alone annoys me.
The vacuum cleaner’s belt fried in April. It’s fancy too and has some kind of ten-year warranty. Well, they don’t sell new belts to anyone and you have to call the company to get a new one. Well, they won’t send us one. It’s July, people!
(Did I mention that I have a cat and dog who love to play with bugs? They attack them, bring them in the house, and then spread their little bug parts all over the house. Yuck.)
And I can’t vacuum.
(But I have a couple of times… I just have to borrow my moms. Don’t think that our floors are that dirty.)
I did Jillian Michael’s Thirty Day Shred for the second consecutive time last night. Now I can barely lift my arms. It hurts.
Jillian is a mean lady. Mean, mean, mean…
(But’s she’s got my best interest at heart, right?)
Sometimes, I feel like everything around me going crazy and that my life is falling apart. But really, it isn’t. I’m a lucky girl. I’m blessed. And I have nothing important to worry about.
So I’m going to keep on smiling. Keep my head up when I want to complain. Be the light in someone’s life. Encourage others. Be positive. Just keep swimming.
Here’s the deal- I want each of you to name three good things that make you smile…. I’ll start:
1.) Sir Justice… He really loves me.
2.) This picture…
3.) And this man.
He’s my rock. My constant. My sunshine.
(And this picture just melts my heart. Look at that tiny puppy!)
Your turn. Give me three things that make you smile.
