Today was a tiring day! My kids were grouchy, clingy, whiny, and fought each other most of the day. I love them SO much and they are normally pretty well behaved and get along but today they really tried my patience. Don't get me wrong, every day with them is a precious gift, it's just that today the gift was exhausting.
Tomorrow will be a new day!
Then I got a lovely "Anonymous" comment at the other blog address from someone saying they were a long time reader. It was in all caps, quite long and used the words "crazy" & "insane" in response to my fundraising efforts. Well I'm not going to apologize for that because with the help of awesome readers like you, we've raised over $3,500 for a great cause and I'm thrilled and so grateful. Oh well, I can't please everyone and the only ONE whose opinion of me truly matters has already covered me in His grace, Praise God.
But the best part of my day was when I let my dogs out to go to the bathroom while I put my screaming toddlers in their high chairs when my doorbell rang. What greeted me was an angry neighbor who shoved a bag of fresh dog poop in my face and said "This belongs to you! Don't send your dog over to crap in my yard. This was the first time and it better be the last." Whatever happened to "Hi, welcome to the neighborhood, it's a pleasure to meet you?"
Our yard is fenced but we are undergoing a construction project and I guess my dog left our yard and relieved herself across the street. I understand their annoyance but they could have handled it a little nicer. Maybe I'm just too nonconfrontational because that response would never have crossed my mind. No pardons today for the poor lab nursing 9 adorable and rapidly growing puppies.
But in happier news my baby sister Dana is going to the hospital tomorrow night and will be induced on Wednesday morning. I can't wait to meet my new nephew Ben and I'm praying everything goes well for Dana, Shawn, & Ben. So exciting!!!
