positive outlooks

I have had a rough week.  Friday, Meredith and I went for sushi and attempted a movie.  They failed to tell us before we bought tickets and a ridiculous bucket of popcorn that we would not be able to go into the movie with Eisley since it was after 6:00 pm.

I was so angry after discovering this - how could someone else ruin this for me?  I left there, mad, and I knew I was being selfish.  It wasn't a waste of a day.  I found some amazing things at the antique store, I spent time with my sister, and we did get to go have sushi.  The comedy relief I wanted for the end of the week was lacking, but I had what matters - my family.

It's a horrible habit of mine to let one negative thing turn my entire day into a negative one.  Unfortunately, I have dealt with a lot of negative issues since Eisley's birth and I want to stop allowing them to take away joy in such a precious time (that will be gone before I know it).


We went on to have a good weekend.  We went away for the state bowling tournament where I temporarily quit weight watchers (oops) and lost my mind all at the same time.  I took both girls to the mall on two different occasions with various stops in between.  I feel like I look like that frazzled mom that's barely hanging on to her sanity when I taken them out by myself.  It certainly isn't a relaxing venture at this point.  Having a baby that refuses to nap in your car seat or anywhere other than a bed really, and hates the car besides is a little unnerving too. (I'm really wondering how a trip later this summer will go with a ten hour trip in the car...)

I have this week to myself, which is much needed.  I'm excited to finish up my some projects, organize some things, and spend a lot of quality time with my family.

my entire world

They wouldn't let you in with Eisley??? What in the world? Nick and I just went to a movie with Addison a couple of weeks ago and they let us in after 7:00! I'm really sorry to hear that you've been dealing with a lot of negativity. That's never easy. I'm not sure what it's about but I wanted you to know that I am proud of you and the hard decision you had to make. I think it's amazing that you put your family first in this situation! :) It's a decision you won't regret!

P.S. You have such a beautiful family!
