Today is Better

Today has been a better day. 

Chris finished reading my post last night and responded with, "Is the pity party over now?"  Very kind and sympathetic, huh?

I truly appreciate the comments and emails...it helps knowing that I am not alone.  Seriously.

My friend Jules posted this phrase on her blog:  Fake it til you make it.  And I think that is going to be my new mantra.  My old one was "In the end it will all be ok.  If its not ok, then its not the end." But there are really only so many times that I can say that to myself.  Perhaps the new one will make me feel all sorts of sassy and then I will end up in a better mood.  Cross your fingers for this.

In the meantime, I started writing this post earlier and in between now and then this is what has happened...

Quinn is insistent on helping with the laundry.  He loves taking clothes out of the dryer for me to fold and putting the wet clothes from the washing machine into the dryer.  Tonight, he pulled the dryer screen out and licked it.  Because nothing makes a better snack than some yummy dryer lint!

Quinn has yet another, most fantastic, trick.  Laying on the kitchen floor and drinking out of Ike's water bowl.  Awesome.

To be fair, I also asked if there was anything I could do to help.

Yeah, Chris is ultra sympathetic like that. And what is with Quinn and the licking things? First it was the toilet cleaner and now the lint. Just so you know it apparently runs in the family, I called poison control after Jonah was caught laying in the driveway licking out of a puddle of water...like the cats do. He was about Quinn's age and Mark had just sprayed for bugs. Then it rained. With bug killer in the puddles. Glad you're feeling better!
