Corona Virus Quarantine Day #297: Nothing in the tank…January 14, 2021:

Do you ever feel or have one of those days where you just have nothing in the tank? I’m having one of those days today.

It’s not any one thing in particular, it’s the normal nitty-gritty of any day of being me and wearing the hats I wear.

It’s stress over things I can’t control, of which there are many.

It’s not getting enough sleep.

It’s the list of things I want to do and feeling like I just may not get to them as quickly as I’d like.

The only thing that I can think of to do on days like today are to laugh with my husband and kids or have a talk with my mom, exercise, because exercise always helps, and to pray the rosary.

As I don’t have a lot to say tonight I can say this…hearing my kids laugh always makes me feel better.

Getting a hug from someone I love always makes me feel better. Having a friend reach out and say hi out of the blue always makes me feel better. Doing a work out, sweating, always makes me feel better. Thinking about all that I have to be grateful for always makes me feel better. Praying a rosary always makes me feel better and more calm.

I guess my point is is that when you feel like you have nothing in the tank there is always something to make us feel better. These things, are things we CAN control!

Above all else we can surround ourselves with people and things that fill us up instead of tear us down.

So I’m gonna take a deep breath, I’m gonna talk to Bryan, my mom and Mary and Jesus and I know tomorrow will be a better day!

Random aside: Today after school I caught Fletcher in a little white lie about a toy he left on the floor. “I didn’t take that out mommy (he said with a smile)!” I said “Fletcher, you know Jesus doesn’t like it when you lie.”

He laughed and said “no mommy he doesn’t but he does forgive us.”

This guy. I’m in trouble.

This was in my memories today when I went to post this…such a beautiful memory of some of my favorite times back in the day when I changed 20+ diapers a day. Look at those 4 chubby faced children…all now 10 years old. Where does the time go? We had a lot of fun together, me, Gaga and those 4 little humans.
