I’m acclimating. I’m making this place, these woods, my home. It’s important for ME to figure out how to make this place a HOME for my babies!
I’ve been struggling but trying really, really hard…pinky swear! We have their rooms kind of, sort of squared away. They have their little corner in these woods! I owe most of that to my husband. He’s worked harder than I at making this place “ours”. He knows it means something to me and that I am not motivated. He’s a good man.
The babies seem happy! I let them play outside in these (poison ivy infested) woods on a daily basis. Bug has already christened the carpet in her room with Kool Aid (think full pack, then water and rag to sop it up before Mom saw it…yea…it’s still there) and Bubby is content to sleep in his bed in his very own room every night. Life is good!
But Momma’s not happy. Y’all know how that goes. If Momma’s not happy…well then…piss on the rest of them! Kidding? Not really! So I sit at my desk, and I do my work, and I smile…it’s all good!
And then out of the blue…HE does it again! Yup, I’m just a shiny happy person and I’m easily persuaded. Beautiful pink roses! There they sit, with my island decor, and I’m once again happy! Call me a sap, call me a push over, call me what you will. You can’t hurt my feelings!
I have my island decor and pretty pink roses. Yes folks, I’ll be OK in these woods because I have the people that know how to make me smile with me! It doesn’t matter where I am, it doesn’t matter what I do…it only matters who I’m with! And I’m with exactly who I want to be with…now and for always!
Sparkle on and enjoy every little tiny bit of your life! Each and every day brings with it a little blessing, no matter how big or small. And always know that someone loves you, and I am happy and content knowing that I am loved! And if you know me or not, if you are reading this, we are connected in some way and I love and appreciate you! Pinky swear!
