5 GRATITUDES (Thank you, Heavenly Papa!):
  • Thank you God the cough seems to be subsiding and my body healing.  You are the God who heals.
  • Thank you God for the nice clothes the kids got at Goodwill and hopefully that will be fine with my mom.
  • Thank you God for completing all my subcon work even though we had tons of errands to run.
  • Thank you God for good deals.
  • Thank you God for a delicious, simple dinner.
  • Had a couple of vents here, actually more than that, but I'd rather be positive than negative.
  • My mom called me to ask if the kids had nicer clothes to wear and basically, not for the winter.  I let them pick out what they want and apparently it's not nice enough.  Daughter is 5'3" and the pants are just too long, but then, she like it this way.  Son's pants are a little long because he's in between sizes.  So, off to Goodwill we go with a 20% off coupon and today is $1 Thursdays.

    My husband found a couple things.  Our son got a couple more pairs of jeans, a couple nice tops and a couple jackets.  Our daughter got several pairs of pants and tops, so that she has enough for at least 4 outfits and a pair of shoes.  I didn't get anything as I have a lot of nice clothes and more than I actually wear.  Saved a bunch of money as some of the stuff was practically new.  A couple pairs of the pants need to be hemmed, and my dad will do those as he's good at hemming and has a sewing machine.

    Anyway, at least now for the winter, they have some nicer casual outfits that my mom will approve of as she likes a neat appearance.  Now the clothes need to go through their washing to get that Goodwill smell out of the clothes.  Thankfully we only had to go to one Goodwill.
  • Feel frustrated with the kids.  Parenting is challenging.
  • At the last minute, the kids were invited to a birthday party today.  We let them go because they didn't have much homework.
  • This is day 2 in a row with very little coughing.  Praise God!!!!!
  • Surprised I got my work finished by 9:30 pm despite 2 trips to the dealership for my dad's car, quick lunch out, going to three grocery stores for stuff, picking up the kids and going to Goodwill.  Had I not had to do any of those things, I probably would've finished before 5 pm.  So, this has been a super productive day.
  • Seriously, I need to workout.  My body feels unfit.
  • Took my heart meds, hair supps, Multi vitamins, fish oil, probiotics, cinnamon, Zn, Mg, Ca
  • Drank ginger, turmeric, green tea with honey & lemon - just a couple cups again today.
