Popping In

Only have a moment, no internet yet at the house, we are at the library. Our new library has HUNDREDS of kids dvd's to borrow. Being a smart and desperate mama, I brought his DVD player along with my laptop to the library. We are both plugged in and very happy.
Settling in, should have internet soon. Boy starts school soon and I can't wait for that. For my blog peeps in the area, lets go do lunch or breakfast to celebrate school starting!!! Whoot!
Little Man, has surprised me with how well he is tolerating the move. He is over all doing VERY well, and I am very, very, grateful. We are taking the move as a opportunity to change some things in his routine that have been needing to change. Like NOT having 200 toys in the bathtub in the morning. (I wish I was kidding, I am not). Now we say, 10, you can only have 10 and because it is a new bathtub, he took the rule change really well. Whew.
I am grateful, happy, and enjoying the new adventure of being some place I haven't been before. Mwah!

Too Busy to Breathe!

We are all fine. Nothing major to report thank goodness! We are moving on Sat so I am packing like an insane person. Praying Little Man won't lose his sweet little mind over all the changes. No grandson yet, although BB continues to threaten to have the kid just about every day. He isn't due until Sept 6, so I am hoping he waits, because I am too busy already! I need some help thinking of a blog name for him, any suggestions?

Working on it

by Max Ehrmann

Go placidly amid the noise and the haste,
and remember what peace there may be in silence.
As far as possible, without surrender,
be on good terms with all persons.
Speak your truth quietly and clearly, and listen to others,
even to the dull and ignorant;
they too have their story.

Avoid loud and aggressive persons;
they are vexatious to the spirit.
If you compare yourself with others,
you may become vain or bitter,
for always there will be
greater and lesser persons than yourself.

Enjoy your achievements as well as your plans.
Keep interested in your own career
however humble;
it is a real possession in the
changing fortunes of time.

Exercise caution in your business affairs,
for the world is full of trickery.
But let this not blind you
to what virtue there is;
many persons strive for high ideals,
and everywhere life is full of heroism.

Be yourself.
Especially do not feign affection.
Neither be cynical about love,
for in the face of all aridity and disenchantment,
it is as perennial as the grass.

Take kindly the counsel of the years,
gracefully surrendering the things of youth.
Nurture strength of spirit
to shield you in sudden misfortune.
But do not distress yourself with dark imaginings.
Many fears are born of fatigue and loneliness.

Beyond a wholesome discipline,
be gentle with yourself.
You are a child of the universe
no less than the trees and the stars;
you have a right to be here.

And whether or not it is clear to you,
no doubt the universe is unfolding as it should.
Therefore, be at peace with God,
whatever you conceive Him to be.
And whatever your labors and aspirations,
in the noisy confusion of life,
keep peace in your soul.
With all its sham,
drudgery, and broken dreams,
it is still a beautiful world.
Be cheerful.
Strive to be happy.
