I have been sick this week. All week long! Ugh!
Today, I'm a little better and I am trying to get my house back in order, one little spurt at a time (I'm taking lots of little breaks to catch my breath). Oh man, my house really has fallen apart this week.
I tend to get so down when I don't feel like I accomplish enough. It really depresses me. And mothers can't afford to get sick. We just can't. Not when there is so much to do. I think it is easy to dwell on what we are not accomplishing, but Wade keeps reminding me of the things I do accomplish. He tells me how it is an accomplishment just to be home with the kids and let them know they are loved. (He's a good guy! I love him!)
So, today I am trying to be grateful for some restored health, and for the fact that I get to be a stay-at- home mom.
It is challenging and the work never ends, but I am so thankful to my husband for working so hard so that I can be home with my kids. With Chase in school half the day, I'm so glad that Livvy is still home with me. I've just been enjoying her today and how much she makes me smile. I feel so fortunate for all the little moments that make my days meaningful.

Livvy was the cutest baby! And so sweet! I miss this age!
She's part princess and part cowgirl.
Her artistic expression is getting the better
of me lately. (On furniture!)
