Wow. Just when you start to think you've got things figured..your hubby goes back to work. I. Am. Exhausted! BOO HOO! He was helping with Pepper's feedings during the night, we would trade off so that we each only had to get up 2 times with her, but now it's all me.  Don't get me wrong, I do it very lovingly and willfully, but I have no energy left for the daytime. There are SOOO many things I want to do, but just have no soup left to do it! I am feeling a lot better today, because, frankly, instead of laying in bed all morning being a complete loser, I got up and carpe diem'd!! Yeah, I'm still tired, but I feel so much better. I think it's because I stayed up until 2:00 so I could feed her, then she slept until 6! I can stay up with no problem, but once I'm in deep sleep and I have to get up, no bueno! Now I'm just whining. 
So, I've been thinking pretty negatively lately and it is manifesting through my words, actions, and health. Bad momma! I really took a step back yesterday and decided that if I was going to start feeling better, I need to start thinking better. Love and gratitude. So I made up this list in my head while I cleaned my house.

I'm grateful for housework, because it means I have a home. 
I'm  grateful for the laundry, because it means my family has clothes on their backs.
I'm grateful for dirty dishes because it means we are well fed. 
I am grateful for our noisy muffler on our car, because it means we have a car, and it runs!
I am grateful for bills, because it means we have electricity, water, and heat. 
I am grateful for bad days, because they make the good days so much better. 
I am grateful that I am exhausted, because it means I have a healthy little baby girl who needs my care.
I am grateful to be missing my husband, because it means he has a job.
I am grateful for a messy house, because it means we are having fun and making memories.
I'm grateful for pain, tears, because it means I am alive!
