I am probably one of the last people someone would expect to hear that from due to my many past complaints about various things that has happened in my life and that is happening in my life. I simply stepped back and reminded myself things happen for a reason and we make of it what we will. Since I have applied this to my life things have gotten better for me. Not everything is perfect, because well no matter how bad we wish things could be nothing is perfect. My family is healthy and happy. We are finally getting answers on the baby's health issues even if it does mean possibly more specialist and further away trips for doctor appointments. Whatever helps us out and makes him better. Plus we can make the most out of the trips. We always do. If we have to go to New Orleans I will make the most out of it by going to Cafe Du Monde.
There are always things people need, but we are at a point in our lives where we are able to get those needs. Might take a little time or might have to wait till the following week (or month depending on what it is), but needs (and wants) get met. My kids are waiting to see if they are accepted into Connections Academy for our state as well. I am hoping this does happen for them (and staying positive that it will), because if not I will have to find and purchase home schooling materials for them. This is a free program and books are provided. I just have to provide things like pencils and a way to go for the field trips. I will of course also provide my time and lots of motivation for my runts to grow and flourish.
Other great things on our horizon is the fact that I am hoping we can make us a little vegetable and herb garden this late spring/early summer. My middle child LOVES tomatoes. He loves them so much he will go to an all you can eat buffet and eat all he can of tomatoes. Especially if they have the cherry tomatoes. I want to buy some tomato plants for him so he can grow his own cherry tomatoes. Homegrown and harvested with love always taste better. We are increasing the baby's protein intake. So far this has helped him gain another pound. I am happy about this and now I am aiming my goal to hit 33 lbs since he is already around 32 lbs. One pound at a time. Just like the old saying one day at a time. We are taking everything one step at a time putting one foot in front of the other.
On another note before I go. I have been a major fan of Mortal Kombat the video game since I was a teen. Some people may know (some may not if you don't follow what games are coming out), but the new Mortal Kombat for PS3 was released at midnight this morning! I totally am excited, because my husband preordered me a copy and paid it off Friday so now I just have to patiently wait for him to get off work so we can pick it up. I can not hardly wait. I feel like a little kid waiting for Santa's visit. I love love love this game. I don't even play video games much (aside from my guitar hero once in awhile), but this game I can see it now will get worn out.
Hope everyone has a good day and hope spring weather soon reaches the north as well.
