So after my chicken pot pie post, I got some flack. Usually I ignore (and delete) the cranky pants, but I've had more than usual lately, so I thought I would address it briefly. Flack about what? About posting what my life is really like, asking what I'm hiding, accusing me of being fake, etc. (BTW, thank you to those who leave sweet, happy comments. I heart every one of you!)
Truly, I am not trying to sugar coat my life. I simply enjoy sharing things that make me smile, that I hope make you smile, things I want to remember about my life when my kids were small. How much I enjoy my role as a mother. Because no matter what my day is like, or how crazy it is, I love being a mother.
Have I had a few breakdowns from sewing all night because of a deadline, getting cranky kids to school in the morning, a grouchy baby, and all I want is a shower and a nap but I have too much to do? YES. Other life struggles/job worries/disappointments? YES. Hard times? Absolutely. Do I get discouraged? Yes, in fact, tonight was a pretty crappy night. Am I grouchy sometimes? Umm, yes. Definitely.
I love my life. Do I always like every part of it? No. I just choose to share a few of my favorite things about it here. The good stuff. I save the private stuff for my private life. To talk to my close friends and family about. I do not complain about it here. This is my happy place. This, and Target. (and Cafe Rio)
Because you know what? I have a heck of a lot to be grateful for, and a whole lot to be happy about. So I choose to focus on that.
Hope you don't mind. :-)
