On my mind

It has been busy, busy, busy at work and I haven't had a second to think about what to get the boys for their birthday. Nor have I had a minute to think about food for their party, or order a cake, or decorations. Maybe tomorrow. . .

We had a delicious dinner tonight: crisp green beans tossed with chicken apple sausage and carmelized onions accompanied by mashed sweet potatoes. Mmmm, sweet and savory. I discovered a new web-based meal planner today called relish! and I already signed up for a 3 month subscription. I'm looking forward to seeing how well I follow it next week.

Monday is the birthday so I've gotta make cupcakes this weekend. I also signed up to do snack every day next week for Jack's class so I expect this weekend will be a busy one. Thankfully, I'm feeling better and coughing less. Even discontinued the cough syrup with codeine. That's for the best - I was having a hard time waking up in the morning.

I'm going to keep writing what I'm grateful for. It reminds me to think positively and helps me to remember what is truly important.

Today I'm grateful:
  • that Tom put an audio book on the power of positive thinking on my ipod so I could listen on my way to work
  • at how well the boys shared their candy tonight after dinner
  • that Tom gave them their baths
  • that I live in a nice neighborhood with friendly neighbors
  • for my health
  • that Jack is healing well following the biopsy of his two moles (it's ok, just being extra cautious and having them biopsied - results next week)
  • for the after care program at school with teachers who are caring and energetic
  • that Tom put the boys to bed which gives me a little quiet time to write
  • for my coworkers who support me, respect me, challenge me and, best of all, make me laugh
  • for the courage to try new things and venture beyond my comfort zone

Hey Kelsi,
I just checked out that Relish website. I am going to try it as well. The food looks good and anything that can help me get in and out of the grogery store faster is A-Okay in my book. I am going to go sign up now, let me know what you think after you do it for a week or two.
Bye for now,
