A Perkier Post

I'm feeling a bit uncomfortable with the weight of that last post.  It's what happens when you are sad all day and then on the internet when you should be in bed.  I should have taken it as a sign to not write public things when I showed up at my neighbor's house for a play date and hung out with my friend in her yard wearing a nightgown I've had since I was 12 and sweat pants.  At 4:00pm.

Oh my, but it's out there, and I can't redact it. (I just said redact because it makes me think of an episode of The Office.)  So anyway, I am sad.  However, today I am making good choices in my sadness.  I am choosing to know God's goodness, to enjoy Harper, to work hard tonight, to smile, and to be loving instead of ugly.  I also chose to wear actual clothes today.  So that seemed like a real step in the right direction.

I will also choose to engage in bits of happiness like this sesame street post I stole from my dear Kelsey.

... and this is a bit racier than sesame street, but pretty hilarious if you need that kind of thing.  So I am choosing to partake in this too.

Choosing to keep my head up,

I've said it once, and I'll say it again: you're my hero. And I'm still in my PJs today. So you're not alone there. Well, actually I changed shirts because the first one had puke on it. Awesome.

Can I tell you how proud I am to now have had two shout outs on the blog?! :) Okay, the first one was really a shout out to my dog, but still. I am glad that you feel comfortable enough around me to wear your sad clothes, but I am happy that you are wearing happy clothes today. Still praying for sweet memories and thoughts to sneak into your day.

way to go on choosing to keep that head up - not an easy thing to do sometimes (or often). business time always makes me laugh....i even downloaded a ringer, but couldn't quite bring myself to use it. :)
