It's strange how quiet a house can be. I am lonely today. Cooper stayed home, and I still have Macy, but my tiny little house, that is usually packed to it's gills with people, feels empty today. Jon was lucky enough to have the last 2 weeks or so off from work, and all the kids were home, so we have had a crazy, noisy, busy house over the Holidays. I miss everyone today. I'm hoping I will get the energy to accomplish something, but so far a shower is as far as I have gotten.
Last night was a baaaaad night. Macy woke up at 1:00, and I got her back to sleep by 2:00. Jon's snoring woke her up by 2:15, I got her back to sleep at 3:30. This time she fell asleep, but between Jon's snoring, and Cooper's hacking, I didn't fall asleep until 5:15 or so. I am dying today. I think the babe is teething. I have a feeling she will not be a happy teether, so wish me luck!
I am feeling especially grateful today, I don't know why, but I do. I am so lucky to have my life. I have 5 amazing, healthy children. I have a roof over my head (although it is somewhat leaky). My car is in good condition. We have food on our table. I have a job, and my husband's business is doing well. I am so appreciative of all the things I have. I need to keep that thankfulness in my heart when I get down, because no matter how hard things are, it could always be worse!
