Grateful Friday

Today is John's first day back at work after his paternity leave. I'm sort of glad it's on a Friday because it eases him and I back into our normal schedules. So far it's almost 10 and me and the kids are all still in our pj's. I'm trying not to stress about stuff though. I wish I would have realized yesterday though that we were completely out of milk and bread. I'm a little nervous about going anywhere with all 3 of them by myself. Maybe I'll make a distress call to my sister who lives close by, or just wait until John gets home. Stella is sick, she's had a fever on and off for 3 days now. I'm really not sure how she got it sense we've been pretty isolated for a couple weeks. I just am praying that John and I or Rocky don't get it. I'm just happy she's still fairly lively and happy.
Stella and Rocky
What I'm grateful for:
- Our healthy sweet children
- Four hours of straight sleep last night
- Friends bringing over meals the last couple weeks
- Watching "Lost" through Netflix, I'm hooked.
- Conan O'brien on late at night while I'm nursing. It's fun to be laughing out loud at 2 am in the morning.
- Having John home the last 2 weeks
- Having our Rocky on Thanksgiving morning
- Mini marshmallows in hot chocolate
- Jack's smile
