Get everything done yet, I am not compelled to compare myself to other women. Why? Simply because while I do notice when Jonesnita has a new car -- its just a image in my mind's rear view mirror. What I have learned since being out of the military:
A. 'Stuff happens' and usually resolves itself without my assistance so, I don't meddle.
B. I stop and smell the chicken poop sometimes -- yep poop is a fact of life without it NO ROSES.
C. Dust is inevitable, get to it when you can because it's always with you even ON YOU.
D. Boys need space to be boys same goes for girls as well.
E. Be aware when 'stuff happens' -- just don't dwell on it enough to sway your tracks unless necessary.
F. Forgive everyone because one day you will make a mistake or about a million of them.
G. Say Thank You, Please, You're Welcome, I Love You, I Need You, I Am Sorry -- and mean it.
H. Share 'because' no one gets out of life unscathed and your gifts may mean life to another.
I. Be honest, to lie is another version of stealing and avoidance is just another shade of lying.
Update on school room (note, my hubby is the hardest working man I know):
The 7 foot book shelf he built this weekend.
Where Zephyr is standing will be the fifth book case he has built to house all the books and materials sent by Mr. Larry and ourselves.
And the book case is full..............
The other book cases are 48" high to get an idea of their size.
Grumpy Gramps Science Lab is almost finished.
Soon I will be inviting other children (families) to share all books we have been given.
Happy Belated Mother's Day All,
I am off to study for mid-terms.
