Promises Made

Yesterday just wasn't my day.

It had some high points - 

-Ina Mae gained 1.5 more ounces - only 1.5 ounces left to go until she gets back to her birth weight!

-My house was cleaned up and down, inside and out, by my awesome cousin.

-My wonderful friends in North Carolina sent us some beautiful flowers (thanks guys!).

-We attended my dad's office Christmas party, where fun was had by all -

I tried to remember those high points when the day wasn't going so well.  

Yesterday I swore to never give Wal-Mart another cent of my money after I stood in line for 30 minutes only to find out that my online order for Christmas cards was lost and there was nothing they could do about it.

I swore to always pack an extra change of clothes for me, as I sat in my car, wondering how to cover up a milk stain that covered half of my body.

But, most importantly, I swore to never take anything for granted.

To soak in every second I get with the awesome people in my life.

Especially the children.
