When you get to the end of your rope, tie a knot and hang on

It seems like so often lately that I have been OVERWHELMED by life.  So much, that I have wanted to get back into my sweats mid-day, lie in bed and suck my thumb.  But alas, I am a woman with too much integrity to let that happen (3 times out of 4) so I get my big girl panties on and trudge through.  Maybe it is part of maturing or being a mother and not wanting to let my kids down.  I don't know.  Either way, God gives me enough strength to get through each day, one step at a time (even if these are small baby steps done in sweats, and sucking my thumb) Ha! 

So, I will carry a "to-do" list, a cell phone with good friends #'s on speed dial, the good book and some tylenol with me all the time as I get through this chapter in my story.  And I am okay with that.

St. Pattys' Day

So, I am totally motivated to make something super fun for St. Patty's Day with the kids.  Good thing I just got a SLOUGH of Michael's coupons in my e-mail this morning!
Here are my ideas:
-Rainbow cupcakes
-"pot of gold" with candy inside and a rainbow handle made from pipe cleaners
-shamrock paintings

Should be TONS of fun  :)

Up to zero

Today, I feel like it might take a miracle to get me up to zero.  It has been a rough and stressful week.  The good news is, that it is half way over.  With good friends, good food, great family, decent wine and a little sunshine everything will be just fine.  I know it.  This definitely keeps me going:

Cute cousins!
