Day 149: What Happened?!

Today should have been a really great day. Just before bed Sweet P actually said it had been a party the whole day. At least she enjoyed the day. We went to a little celebration at a nearby dairy and the kids got to do a bunch of fun stuff. Then we went to the mall in the late afternoon and bought a bunch of things, but most notable to the kids were gummies at the bulk candy store. And then they got to ride their bikes and scooters when we got home. And she got a piece of leftover cake after dinner. Apparently, that is what it takes to make it a party all day for Sweet P.

But there were other things that happened in between that sort of made it a rough day for me and for HH. Sometimes it's no fun being the adult and having to deal with responsible stuff. If only life could just be about barrel rides, bike rides, gummy candies, and chocolate cherry cake.

So, I'm a little ashamed to admit it, but I think today's Joyful Moment was brought to me by some good ol' retail therapy. I bought some much needed new workout clothes and I can't wait to try them out! Normally, buying things makes me a little sick inside because I hate spending money. But oddly, I didn't have any of that. Maybe it's because HH was actually the one swiping the card? I don't know. All I know is, there is no regret, only joy and anticipation!

Wishing you all Joyful Moments brought to you by good ol' retail therapy!

This was a rough day for me too. My greatest joy came with 2 hours of helping my sister clean her home. It was great to put some of my emotional energy to work and end of with a clean home and a way to thank my sister for letting us stay with her.
