30 Days of Thanks. Day 4

It was as if, my decision to do this, was also a way for the fates to try me. Like they are saying, "Oh you think you have 30 things to be thankful for? I'll show you!"

Today I was sick. I woke up in the middle of the night. That's no surprise, but it was at a different time then the baby. I was super nauseous! Then all day I was have stomach cramping and nausea. I thought it was possibly food poisoning. Josh took the kids out for errands so I could take a bath and relax. As soon as they came home, Aiden called for me. I picked him up to say hello, and he threw up all over the both of us. Thanks for saving that for me buddy.

So granted, I know I have a zillion things to be thankful for. It's just been a rough week, and thinking of the good is hard. It's much easier to dwell on the negative, like vomiting, a bank that double paid your mortgage by accident and now you have no money, a tenant who falsified applications and had her ex husband move in to our property. Totally illegal! It continues, bully guy from island park calling and leaving me a nasty message, another tenant late with rent. Oh and I'm in the Relief Society Presidency, sort of, and I found out that they decided as a ward to only provide ONE meal to new baby families. WTF! I know, that got me all worked up.

I can tell you this, Josh is very thankful for all this other stuff that is bugging me because it takes the attention off of him and I'm not angry with him this week. He actually said that.

So I rack my brain. Think happy thoughts! Today I am thankful for music and the technology we have to play it. ie my Iphone/ipod. I have the strangest mix on my ipod. From Lincoln Park to Miley Cyrus to Peter Paul and Mary to Alan Jackson. Crazy! But oh how music can help to take your mind from things.

If I had some sense, I would know how to add music to my blog so you to could listen.
