For me, every day is a bit of a rollercoaster. Or maybe that is a bit too dramatic of a statement. It isn't all high-highs and low-lows, but a good day can take quick turn downwards sometimes in the time it takes to say one sentence.
Today was a pretty good day involving an impromptu playdate at a drop in gymnastics class with a friend and her daughter whom we haven't seen in awhile. That tired even the fiesty Miss Evelyn out, which was a nice change of pace! Then after Mylie's dance class, the teacher told me that Mylie had treated her to a show of her best moves. I knew exactly what she was talking about, as Mylie has this signature dance move at home that she calls her hip-hop, where she jerks her shoulders and arms forward quickly while rolling her neck and thrusting her hips. I am pretty sure that her teacher thinks that either Adam or I must dance like that at home, lol, but I swear, we don't (we both dance very poorly, like sea monkeys, but that move of Mylie's? It is all her own... it is very umm, special.)
So that stuff was all good, and that package I complained about yesterday? The tracking was miraculously updated today and it looks like it will arrive tomorrow. More good news! But all that happiness came crashing down this evening when Laina developed a bad headache, possibly even a migraine. I know it isn't the end of the world, and she will probably be all better by tomorrow, but that one little thing... and I am devastated with worry. I wish that I could develop a tougher skin, or "rise above it" as my mom always says. I just seem to be too fragile... or else already broken. I don't know... I read a good quote on one of my favourite blogs the other day, Courage doesn't always roar. Sometimes courage is the quiet voice at the end of the day saying, "I will try again tomorrow." ~Mary Anne Radmacher (check out Kelle Hampton's blog "Enjoying the Small things" if you haven't already!) And so? I will try again tomorrow... to be more complete and less broken.
Oh and my picture for the day? Random. And last minute. In fact I just took it of my cat Pearl a couple of minutes ago.
