At the end of every week I like to look back on the things that made me feel good. Sometimes when it’s a really tough week, it helps to remember the things that made it not so bad.
*ONE* ::: I’ve been under the weather this week (going on day eight) and I started watching this show called Shameless. Holy crap is it addicting. It was nice to binge watch a new show to take my mind off of how crappy I was feeling.
*TWO* ::: I had a fellow blogger reach out to me this week and ask for advice. It really means a lot to me when other bloggers, especially step mom bloggers, reach out and ask for my advice on certain situations. I might not know all the answers, but it makes me feel good when I can lend some advice or just a listening ear.
*THREE* ::: I’ve got to video chat a lot with my husband with week. Thank goodness for technology because being able to see his face makes this distance thing not so bad.
*FOUR* ::: It was a rough start to the week with the munchkins but in the end no one died, the house didn’t burn down, and I’m still standing. I would call that success, especially when it felt like those two rascals were out to get me the entire time.
*FIVE* ::: Throughout the past nine days I’ve been really lucky to have some amazing people in my life check up on me and see how I’m doing while Matt’s gone. It makes me feel good to know that there are people in my life I know I can always count on. That could mean a helping hand moving a trampoline from three doors down, playing with the kids while I made dinner, sending me a text message, or bringing me a bottle of wine and watching some reality television. It meant a lot to me and I don’t know what I’d do without those wonderful people.
