Pretty much, I am sitting in my warm house on this cold day with a tummy full of an orange (I really like oranges) and a (momentary) quiet houseful of kids and am finding it hard to make a list of things I am happy about. There is no excuse for me. I am a whiny rich kid. Except I am not rich or a kid. Just whiny.
But Justin is coming home.
Lily is sitting in her cardboard house talking happily to herself.
Our new-ish wall clock is chiming.
Orianna is sitting on the sofa reading a book with her bag packed to go to Livie and Tori's for a sleepover tonight.
Gilbert has been helping me all day--vacuuming, picking up fridge magnets, pulling things out of the dishwasher.
And Elsie had her first ever pony tail today.
These pictures are giant. I have no idea why. But she is cute even in giant size.
And now, I think I will go have a little attitude readjustmet--namely go into my very cold uninsulated walk in closet and fold clothes in the freezing, can-see-your-breath temperature so that when I come back into my warm house, I can find true happiness.
