Can I confess a pretty ungrateful heart? I could hide behind sleeplessness and little people, but in the end, my attitude is my choice.
So, let's begin the remedy, shall we? Four days in, here are four blessings beyond belief in my life...
1. The baby poops. We stopped nursing, started removing things from her diet, and finally, Scrunch poops like a champ, sleeps through the night, even naps. Oh, and her eczema is clearing up. And she's happier--way happier--which makes everyone else happy. It's almost like meeting her real self for the first time.
2. Professor's getting results. Which means publishing in a higher-impact journal. Which means more open doors. Which can only be good from here.
3. Work. I'm using naptime these days to edit other people's work. For money! It's nice contributing to the family coffers, but even more so, it's nice to have a project with a beginning, middle, and end. You know, unlike laundry and diapers and dishes.
4. I'M GOING TO CALIFORNIA!!!! This probably deserves a post unto itself, but Professor is going to a conference in December, and since his way is paid, we have enough for me to go along, too! We haven't been out-of-state together (aside from going back to Minnesota) our entire marriage, so it'll be a real treat.
I'm feeling more thankful already...and that's just the tip of the iceberg!
