You know what? It’s actually been a pretty good day. Obviously, it wasn’t perfect or stress free but I don’t think those days even exist.
I feel like we made some progress around the house and for the most part, the kids got along with each other. I’m always grateful for that and it helps to maintain a positive tone for the day. It’s amazing how something so simple can change the demeanor in the house.
I didn’t get a whole lot of work done but I’ve written twice and that hasn’t happened in forever. That’s big for me and it’s progress.
This week I need to focus on finishing up episode 39 and before Wednesday. That should be relatively easy, assuming the boys let me have the time needed to get it done. It’s a short school week because of Thanksgiving and it just occurred to me that I should probably push the episode back a week. I don’t know. I’ll figure something out.
The boys and I are cooking a turkey this week. I had not planned on that and had zero desire to do so but the school dropped off turkeys to all the families on Friday. Now we’re cooking a turkey I guess.
This will be my first time doing something like this on my own and I’m hoping it goes well. The kids deserve some normalcy in their lives and I intend on delivering.
I’m actually writing this before 10 pm and the kids are already in bed. That means I get to go to sleep early and I’m excited about that. I’ve not been sleeping well lately. My mattress is heavenly but my brain just won’t shut off. With any luck, I’ll fall asleep early and feel fabulous in the morning.
On a side note, Ruby will not be joining me tonight because she puked on my bed the other night and I’m still a little salty over that. Yes, she looks adorable and super comfortable but she has a nice little bed underneath mine. She’ll be fine for the night.
My best to all of you.
