The other guy was in fact a mosquito that got me while I was peacefully slumbering (dirty fighter). Got me right on the eyelid while I was snuggled up in bed. I didn't even get the satifaction to squish him during his feast. My eye has been swollen all day. It also got me in the eyebrow of my other eye, but that's not nearly as swollen. I took the max dose of benadryl about an hour ago and am now going to zonk out. I hope I can wake up before noon tomorrow....
I've been thinking a lot lately about what my children are teaching me and thought that with my 100th post (go me) I would record some of those things.
Through Cougar I have learned the importance of perspective. In his eyes, plain old seagulls become "Eagles!" Various flowery weeds become beautiful bouquets that must be shared. I see another plane in the sky making those cloudy tracks. He sees a shooting star and a reason to make a wish. I see potato bugs or worms or some other common crawly thing and he sees great scientific discoveries. I see me as being average, plain, not much and he sees a beautiful woman who can fix any problem, do anything, who knows the answer to every question. He sees things a totally different way. His way is better. I need to look through his eyes more often.
Phoenix is teaching me to never settle. As soon as you accomplish a goal move on to the next thing. Keep growing and progressing. There's always room for improvement. He shows me that simply being with the people that love you is enough.
I got married to Mark Davis in January of 2004 became a mommy in May of 2005. I stay at home and raise our sweet (most of the time) son Cougar. I am patiently awaiting the arrival of our second bundle of joy. (Due in October)
I really don't have very many links to everyone else's blogs, because I don't know that many. If you'll send me an email I'll be sure to include yours!! firstname.lastname@example.org
This is a system I wholeheartedly believe in! It is slowly, but surely changing my life. I have never been a good housekeeper and am perpetually unorganized, but my kitchen and living room have been pretty much spotless for almost a month (and it's spreading to the rest of the house). Check out what she says, try it, all of it and see what happens in your home.
