Crybaby and the Poo

Hi. I'm a crybaby. . .

My mom called me this morning and I did something awful. I whined.

She asked what I was doing. Cleaning. Can't seem to keep up and soon I'll have less time because I'm going to start helping with our business more again.

She asked why. So we can save and move the business into our own warehouse. Because {a certain online auction site} is . . . NOT cool to their sellers. Because I was asked to.

She said it will all work out, that I always know what to do to help my husband in just the right way, that I'll still get everything else done too. That she loves me.

Then she sent me this and I laughed out loud.

"Cheer up-you could be the one in the car!
Love ya

(I have no idea who made this. It sure looks Photoshopped to me, so someone deserves the credit but it isn't me!)

*Then, while I was writing this post she commented on "J is for Jaboticaba." I have the best mom.*

Thanks, Mom! At least I'm not having a crappy day . . . today . . .

Yesterday the boys' toilet overflowed. Again. {Stop shoving a whole roll down there! When you finish, shut the door so the 2 year old doesn't throw something in there!} I was crying as I mopped up the dirty water for what seems like the hundredth time this month.

Didn't Bill Cosby describe his mother's tenacity once by describing her as dancing while plunging the toilet while it sprayed and whistling "Singing in the Rain?" If only I had that kind of resolve!

But no, I'm a crybaby. Yesterday I cried about poo. This morning I cried for Nie, for how pathetic I am to complain at all and for their family's great example of FAITH. Then I cried with gratitude for my mom, for the gift of personal inspiration, for my amazing life, for the pure sake of being a wonderfully emotional WOMAN.

I have a great life!

I'm gonna go cry now. . .

Well just know you are not alone.
NOt that it helps much.
I got your message today, I got busy working in Avery's class and such.
I didn't recognize your number.
I am going to have to work too, I hate it, but that's the way it's gotta be for awhile.
I feel your pain.

Krissy, if/when I get preggers, EVERYONE will know. Don't worry about that! I sure miss you, too.

Shanda, I forgot about Tues for you. I had to call with Chris' phone. I was just thinking it would be nice to get a dessert somewhere and cry & laugh together. I just couldn't get you out of my heart today...are you OK?

I AM preggo and I have a good crying session at least once a week. A couple of weeks ago I thought I would drop tears any and every minute of the day! Sometimes it's good to get a good cry out!

I felt like crying for the past 2 weeks too! Good thing I had bad luck cause otherwise I would not have had any luck at all. Still no lap top. You would think Best Buys could get a new hard drive for the computer they sold me quicker than they are.

Hang in there honey, I hope to see you in a month or so, as soon as we close the gift shop here at the North Rim. I could use one of your hugs too!!:) (And it is about time for you to be pregnant-how much weight have you lost? Always happens when we get close to the size we want to be!:)

Love you bunches xoxoxoxoxoxo

Our Four Sons said...

Wow...maybe by the time Derrick is 2 I will be able to have enough patience to whistle singing in the rain!
