OK, I'm feeling inspired by my friendly neighbor's blog. She is writing everyday about something she is thankful for. I will try to do it too. It will help me to stay positive in my frantic suburban spin cycle, I hope.
This morning I am thankful that my brother, who just moved back here from Montana, got a job. Not any job, but the job he was most excited about, being a Mac Genius for Apple. I am thrilled for him and I'm sure he will like it and excel at it. We drank champagne with him on Labor day weekend when he got the call for a second interview and now we need to celebrate because he's hired. Good luck on your first day of work, Pablo!
- I'm just a mom in the world. A crunchy Catholic mama of 6 trying to make sense of it all and stay positive. 5 boys here & 1 in heaven. One awesome man who I get to grow old with. I help new moms breastfeed. I`m happy. I don`t go to shows or dance clubs every night but I would if I could. Where`s the nanny? When I see her she`s SO fired! One of my boys is super sweet and sensitive, another one is a holy terror. I learn a ton from all of them daily. Like Nigella says, as any parent of small children knows,there comes a point in the day where you can`t go any further without a drink! I love cocktail hour. I`d like nothing more than to be with my family and some good friends surrounded by tropical plants drinking a margarita listening to the Eagles. I don`t care about trendy, I like that grungy 70`s vibe.
