Being Positive

Ummm...ok so I promised some good attitude right?

Uhhh....well maybe I literally yelled to my child "Ezekiel Clark I will FREAKING KILL YOU if you don't stop!" just now (he's been banging something against the table for a good half hour now, and yes, it IS his nap time and yes, there are now dents all over my table). But his hair is spiked and it looks rather cute.

And my house might be 50 degrees in the livingroom because I cant turn on the heat yet because Josh hasnt finished winterizing (meaning we still have an AC unit in the window (therefor open window) upstairs and 4 measly inches of insulation in our roof) but the livingroom is a rather cute (and warm) shade of yellow?
And I also picked up my borrowed maternity coat today so at least I can wear it in an attempt to keep from re-enacting that Titanic scene...

And the fire alarm may have been beeping (every 26 seconds to be exact) all morning long. I may have tried EVERYTHING to get it to stop and it wont, hence a child not asleep and a mommy about to TEAR HER EARS or maybe even her BRAIN off.

But, GOOD THING, we have an emergency fire back up plan. It involves a sock monkey and a fire extinguisher. So at least I dont have to worry about a fire, what with our broken fire alarm. The monkey is in position, as he always is (being magnetic and stuck to the wall), ready to deal with it. And hey, a small kitchen fire might warm up the house a bit...
And at least the monkey is appropriately dressed for the temperature around here. I mean, I'd hate to think he was SUFFERING.

And yes, maybe I had a rough time getting my pajama pants on last night, what with the bulbous stomach and all. And maybe I got a charlie horse in my right thigh and left calf at the EXACT same moment, sending me into an immediate panic (under my 5 blankets). But Zeke slept well....

See? I'm looking on the POSITIVE side.

Where are those brownies I made yesterday?

Oh....I want brownies. Okay, I might have to go to the store tonight and treat myse----the ki----no, myself. Not the kids.

I think you gave a tremendous "looking on the bright side" effort. Congrats to you! Is the fire alarm beeping because it needs a battery replaced? I know nothing about fire alarms - ours have never worked. I know, I know, bad mommy.

I'm popping over from SITS roll call - happy Thursday!

I think I ate all the brownies....

Way to look at the bright side. Sounds like you had a terrific day. ;)

Hope things start looking up again soon.

Yes- you need to change the battery, that's all! It kept us up one whole night once, till we sheepishly figured it out.

It gets harder when you're down to the end of pregnancy and you still have this little person who needs so much and you just can't lay down and rest the way you did with the first. But He will sustain you!

Blessings!
