A few confessions to cleanse my soul...

1. I wasn't really all that calm or collected during Zack's seizure. You all give me too much credit. I called 911 because I had no freaking clue what else to do.

2. I have not gone to the gym one single day this week. And I plan not to tomorrow. I have excuses? You want to hear them? No? Here they are anyway.
Monday... I was sick
Tuesday... Eric was sick
Wednesday... I volunteered at school.
Thursday... Ben, Zack and I were too traumatized after Ben's blood draw to think about it.
Tomorrow... Well, heck, why not round out the week of NOT exercising and go play with a friend instead.

3. I stink at things like sticker charts and long term ways to motivate the boys to be good. I usually make a great chart, use it for maybe a week and then it goes by the wayside.

4. In spite of having a really great day yesterday, I felt the same impatience & stress at dinner time that I usually do.

5. I kind of hope Ben is allergic to some food so I can remove it from his diet and CLEAR UP THE ECZEMA once and for all.

6. I need to potty train Zack. He's ready. I'm not. I must get over this and DO IT ALREADY. Next week, k?

7. I am losing my mind a little. As well as everything else. I've lost my camera (which I mentioned), my cell phone (which the kids found in the back of the van 2 days later) as well as other things that I can't remember right now.

8. I don't always keep things in perspective. I try. Really. But I fail more than I succeed. (Another case of you all giving me too much credit-- going from your comments.)

9. I had a bad case of the I don't want to's last night when Kevin came home ready to work on tile. I didn't speak of it to him, but I dreaded it. We got a lot done though, and now I'm glad we did it (plus he's doing all the hard stuff, I was just being a whiny baby.)

10. I am so happy and get giddy every time I get a comment on this blog. It amazes me that you all show up here to read what's on my mind and about my silly guys. It's fun for me to write it, but so rewarding that you actually take time out of your day to read it and even more time to comment. Thanks so much!!

Oh, me too, me too, me too. Especially #2, 3, 4, 7, 7, 8, 9, 10. And I have totally been there with both 5 and 6. Boy, it really is a mystery that we are friends... :)

Hang in there. Next week will be better. Or at least different, which sometimes is all you can ask for. I want to write more, but the kids just ran out into the street and I am legally obligated to go after them.

uhhh.... 3, 4, 6, 7 here. And I would say 2 as well, but I haven't even JOINED the gym yet. (You know, like I said I was going to on Tuesday?)

@Shanna, you crack me up!

It is so nice that I'm not the only mom that isn't perfect! I would give you my confessions...but really they are much worse!

I was/am not good at star charts either, hate to tile and have done tons of it in my life and never want to do much of anything I don't want to do these days. Hope you have a good weekend - see you soon- Kellan
