In the grand scheme of jubilation, exhilaration and rejuvenation, today is not particularly noteworthy. However, my life is blessed and beautiful, so who needs those other things?
- A heavy measure of Unanswered Prayers is the main ingredient in my steaming pot of God-Knows-Better-Than-You Stew. Thankfully, the other ingredients include Hindsight and Reassurance.
- Dr. Caples isn’t making me wear those embarrassing rubber bands on my braces anymore during the day. When asked how much longer I have to wear the braces, he says, “We’re getting close.” Woohoo for progress!
- A nice man named Sylvester and his young family are now enjoying their new dining room set, which means we have a huge space in our living room where it was when we called it ours. That means we can finally rearrange our living room!
- Tomorrow I get to take my new car on its first road trip. Brace yourself, I-20!
- I just found out Academy has my treadmill in stock!
- My handsome, hilarious nephews Grant and Ethan turn two this month. Don’t you agree that it’s time for their parents to start planning their next set of twins?
- I guess now I’ll know if either my brother-in-law or sister-in-law read my blog because they will never let number six go without a response.
- I never understood why my parents used to say if they could’ve afforded it, they would’ve had six kids or more. I loved having just me and my brother and my parents in the house. However, now that I have kids of my own, I get it. My kids are awesome. Can you imagine if I multiplied that rockin’ awesomeness times six?
- Wee Ball is about to start! At the end of the season last year, I said that when the last batter had gone around the bases at the last game, I was going to home plate and spike Sarah’s pink helmet right there in the dirt to show that I was officially over the whole thing and done with it. Since Sarah was the last batter of that aforementioned last game and she fell at home plate and hurt herself, it didn’t quite seem appropriate. Now that the season is here, I am excited again! I guess it’s like labor pains – once it’s over, you look back more with fond memories than with the pain of what it took to go through it. I’m sure our little bat girl Aubrey will throw in her craziness contribution and won’t make practices and games easy, but it will at least be interesting.
And thus sums up my terrifically average Tuesday. Better than some, not as great as others. Oh well. It’s mine nonetheless. Might as well enjoy it!
