just sayin’… =)

Ahhhh Friday –

It’s good today because my babies are home from school and my pain is a lot better.  I realize that really all that can be done til I see this specialist in Denver is to let the doctors manage my pain – and no, that doesn’t mean with wine.   So today, I am thankful that my pain seems to be under control for now!!

Since I started having all this pain and going to the doctor for it back in November/December, I’ve completely slowed down my wine consumption.  I love wine – love it – ok?  Don’t get me wrong – I still have a glass or two every now and again, but only once or twice a month if that often.  It’s because I’m taking all these anti-inflammatory medications and because now that I’m living in Colorado again, I rarely have any nights without kids… and it’s just a little harder to justify drinking wine every night when my children make a pretty good argument for how i should be doing stuff for them instead. haha! 

There’s another thing I just need to get off my chest, so please bear with me…  I’m pretty much over having people in my life who take joy in bringing me down to make themselves feel better.  I just am.  I’ve worked hard to be where I am in my life – and while it may not mean much to some people –  I’m a loving and hardworking mother and I take a lot of pride in that.  I love my friends and my family and there’s next to nothing I wouldn’t do for them, but I’m finished putting up with less than I deserve.  So it’s as simple as this – if you don’t have something nice to say, don’t say it.  If you can’t be good to me – then back off and stay out of my life.  That’s where I’m at.  If this applies to you, you know who you are.  I’m just tired of pretending that it doesn’t hurt my feelings… it may seem that I have a tough exterior, but I’m really a marshmallow. 

Have a great day – I have some little people to take to the park now.

    Ok – I submitted that comment before I was done. Figures eh?
    I think I would cry if I couldnt have my wine every night. I may not always drink it every night, but I like knowing I CAN! lol

    OH – and I keep forgetting to tell you – my address is the same. I still get all my mail to my parents house because its just easier.

    • oh ok – well that’s good to know. thanks! ❤ you
