Oh Liz, I'm sorry. I hope you're feeling better soon!
I was in a mood like that yesterday. Bills and all that. My sil came over and could really tell that my energy was just foul. So, I went to toys r us yesterday and forgot my credit card at home.(that's a good thing and a bad thing, depending on how you look at it
I washed dds Tamagotchi and I felt pretty bad about it because she really liked it. So, I decided that I would get her another one. Well, dd2 is pretty in love with it, so I was going to get her one. I had a $20gc and the Tomigatchis came to $30, I think. I also had a $5 cupon off $25 purch....so I needed $5 stinking dollars, I was going to charge that but didn't have the cc. Well, I look in my purse and there are 5 dollar bills, woot!
That sort of changed my outlook on things for the rest of the day. The electric bill was past due simply becasue I'm lazy and have to go o0ver there to pay it. So, I took the 100$ and needed $20 more to pay it. I was lamenting over that when I decided to go to my grandfathers house and get the 20 or so that he gives us everyweek for fruit(long story but it has to do with him being donned the name 'fruit fairy'
, I'll share if you like.
So, I go to the designated 20 spot...lol and I find an extra 20 in there(which he will do occasionally) I was so happy. I went to pay the electric bill...and all the way home I thought about the secret, there were green lights all the way! Several other things turned out the way I wanted them to...I was just so happy and I really felt validated that the secret worked~! Increased my mood tremendously.
Thanks for the suggestions about solstice. I think we have some things to talk about now. It's not really presentations that they have to do....one girl in the class talked about the Hannaukah( i don't think i'll ever spell that right)
and it made dd really want to talk about yule, solstice and paganism. I had to explain to her that some of her friends might not want to play with her after they go home and tell their parents about what she talked about. She didn't care. She said it was more important that she talk about it and she'll still have some friends so its okay. I'm so pround of her, she amazes me everyday.
We went to chuckie cheese last night for a bday party.(ugh, we came out with a headache) dd1 was trading in her tickets. She got this little wand with asparkly star on it and leaned over to me and said 'witches use magic wands, mama'. She's so great!
Everyones trees look great! I'll post a pic of my hanging tree when I get a chance!
