Happy thoughts

Things around here haven't been especially happy and positive lately so I thought I would post all the good things happening. I have been in a funk, and I am hoping that focusing on the positive will help break out of it.

  • I have a 95% test average in my class right now. All the late night study sessions are paying off. 
  • Meeghan is 99% potty trained. At night one of us has to wake her to take her to the bathroom, but most morning she is waking up dry. Plus she is over her fear of public restrooms! A few weeks ago she had no choice but to go in one, and she did. Since that night she has gone without a fuss. It has made outings so nice. 
  • E is taking leave in a few days so we are taking a mini vacation
  • Hannah ate mashed potatoes last night! I know it doesn't sound like a huge deal, but for 2 years she has been refusing to eat them. Last night she helped me make them, and decided she wanted to try them. I can finally make potato dishes again!
  • I may have made a friend here. She is close to my age and has two boys close to my girls' ages. We were talking about going to Disney together while our husbands are gone.
  • E was promoted this month. The pay raise is always nice when trying to pay down our debt. 
And with that bit of happiness, I am off to study about point of care testing and all the crap that goes with it. Sounds like fun, doesn't it? I hope everyone had a great weekend!


  1. Good for you on having such a good grade in class! You are awesome!

  2. Sounds like you're rocking your classes. Nice job, lady!!
    We get Marcus up to use the restroom before *we* go to bed. I know 99% of the time Marcus isn't even awake when we do this, but it means no wet bed at night.
    YAY! For mini vacations! You all deserve it. I can't wait to hear all about it.
    And oh. my. gosh. I NEED Marcus to like mashed potatoes. They are literally one of my favorite foods, and he REFUSES to eat them. Perhaps having him help me make them would give him a push to actually try them.
    Have fun at Disney with your newfound friend!

  3. Way to go on your grade! That's fantastic! Yay for the friend! I don't know why it's been impossible for me to find friends around my age with kids the same ages as mine...

  4. Great news on the potty training front! And congrats on doing so well in your classes, that is amazing! Hope you guys are having a nice weekend! :)


I'd love your opinion!
