Ups and downs

Did you really think I was going to post everyday??? I hope I was only kidding myself on that one. Does it make any sense that I would pick the busiest month of the year to commit to a blog post everyday??? I must have been drinking that night or something when I said that.

My dad called me and informed me I'm "a lazy blogger."

Nothing but encouragement round these parts.

Anyways....

Today has been a day.

A day full of ups and downs.

It all started with the fact that I noticed a couple of weeks ago that I had a receding gum line on one tooth. I was seriously freaked out for the last two weeks that the dentist was going to yell at me about it today and tell me my teeth were going to fall out. Personally, I would rather my momma yell at me than my dentist. I'm scared of my dentist. Even though he really is one of the nicest people I've met and he's never once yelled at me before.

Anyways, it's most likely genetic and at least has nothing to do with anything I'm doing or lack of doing I should say. Looks like I can put the denture order on hold for now. I got a thumbs up and a $10 co-play, so I was happy and flying high when I left.

On the way home from the dentist, my MIL called and asked to take me shoe shopping since she evidently has noticed I only have two pairs of shoes I wear. My feet grew a whole size from pregnancy and I'm too busy buying shoes for my daughter to buy any for myself.

Then, out of nowhere (also known as facebook), I got an email from a high school friend that I, no lie, have not talked to in over ten years. It was a very sweet and encouraging email that told me (from reading my blog) she thought I was an awesome mom. I was like "wow." Because even though she said I probably didn't need to hear it from some random person, I did. Sometimes it means more when random people are the ones to say those things. Because at least I look like I've got it all together, right?

And then....my husband and I got into a fight and he said something to me that really hurt my feelings. So much so, that hours later, I'm still fuming and can't seem to let it go. I quickly fell from that flying high mood and unfortunately, it feels like I cannot recover for the rest of the day. It's amazing how only five words can turn your day into a great one to a crappy one.

So, the lesson of the day is.....watch your words.

You never know when your words might make or break someones day.

I could never commit to posting every day, even if it was just a picture! Good try though. :) I know what you mean, it is nice to hear from someone that they think you are a good mom. We second guess ourselves all the time, so a little pat on the back is greatly appreciated!

Sorry your feelings were hurt. I am usually the offender when the hubbs and I get in an argument. I don't know why we automatically go for the hurtful words. It doesn't solve anything and only makes things worse. I hope your day is better today!
