Some days I need to be reminded of my blessings.
It's nice to look back at the last week and remember it's not all bad.
Even when I have to work a holiday and the guys get to go play at the zoo.
At least I have a job that I almost always love. That's more than a lot of people have.
Even on days when my pchem derivations in lecture end up showing that 100% efficiency equals 0% efficiency (curse you Carnot Cycle!).
This is how my brain feels most of the time by the way:
Admist bad news, fussy babies (I'm counting my 2 big boys too), and my ever-hungry, sore post-baby-#3-body, I've gotten to laugh
and enjoy family and friends. (Yes, that's my dad spinning my mom at the park.)
Okay so I sometimes wanted to sit in a corner with my favorite food too, Haddie.
And I kinda did.
Of course, while I'm taking a bite of my HUGE Charleston Chew at school, I ran into two other professors. I managed to say with a full mouth of chocolate-nougat goodness as they walked by, "I promise I'm just having a bite. I'm not eating the whole thing in one setting!"
The other reason why I take a bajillion pictures is because I can't believe that God let me have three beautiful children.
And I have to remember how much they love each other.
Deep down I'm pretty sure they love each other.
Finally, I take a bajillion pictures so my kids will take pictures, too. Nothing brings a laugh like these beauties:
And mother-daughter talks.
All caught on camera. Gotta have those memories!
