2nd Blog Birthday
I'm having a contest!
Leave a comment, tell your friends to leave a comment, everyone leave a comment- even if it's just to say, "Hi!" and I'll pick one person from the list (all seven of you, lol!) to win a fabulous "Shut Up and Knit" mug.
Contest runs until April 19th at noon, EST.
I also have bad news about my wrist. I cheated yesterday and knit for about 30 minutes (first time cheating, I swear). All afternoon it bugged me and this morning it's really, really sore. So I'm going to see a specialist sometime in the near future.
The first few days of not knitting were awful. Seriously- awful. Now that I've had time to do other things- cleaning, organizing and reading- I know that it's not a bad thing to take a break once in awhile.
And one last thing- a story.
So at the gym there's a sign in sheet for the women's exercise room. I have no idea why, but I diligently sign in every time.
Thursday was not a good day. We woke up too early, everyone in the house was in a bad mood, I swear if Motherhood was real job I would have quit that morning. Seriously, the morning was awful.
I went to the gym, not really wanting to be there, but knowing full well that I'd walk out of my house and never come back if I stayed home.
I go to sign into the women's area and someone had written, "Today is a great day!" on the top of the page. It had hearts and sqigglies all around it.
For whatever reason, it made something snap- in a good way. I worked out with renewed gusto. I forced myself to repeat those words over and over again all day long. Whenever I felt overwhelmed, whenever I wanted to give up, whenever the Boy whined or cried for no reason...I said those words.
Today is a great day.
So my wish for you is to remember: Today is a great day!
