Celebrating the Wins

The past few days have felt like marathons. Lately, I’ve felt like a need a weekend after my weekend but it’s seemed like Mondays and Tuesdays end up being busy too and then by Wednesday I am so DONE. (Okay, I’m really done before Wednesday, but I try to fake it for a little while).

The weekend really wasn’t that busy overall, it’s just the way things fell and my apparent lack of prep for the week that got me feeling like I just needed another day. Not even a day, just a few quiet hours to get my life together again. (That’s a daily thing for everyone, right?)

I think the problem is that I actually felt ahead of the game Saturday morning, since I cleaned and did a bunch of stuff before book club on Thursday so that a sitter (a cousin) could come watch the kids that I sort of forgot to keep staying ahead of the game…Also, my head keeps going to these weird and critical and overwhelming places and my headaches have been increasing (they were decreasing)…and now I’m just starting to ramble.

I need to celebrate some wins!

Okay, so I did get to go to book club last Thursday! WIN

I did get Natalie to her games on Saturday (yes, 2 games) WIN


I got to see my dad at Natalie’s game WIN

He bought us things from the food truck because I didn’t bring cash and because that’s what Papa’s (and daddy’s) do WIN

Natalie started off the second game by scoring and then they won in overtime WIN

We went to Sunday School and church on Sunday WIN

I led another cookie booth on Sunday WIN

I prepped a lasagna before church so we would have it for dinner that night after cookie booth WIN
