Getting To Yes

Through no fault of my own, I'd been sucked down into the muck of "no" and "wait" and "later". You know what? I'm not all that patient a person. I know that must come as a shock to regular readers. [ I can't even type that with a straight face :p ]

The reality is that I'm a grown-up. I get to make choices. I get to set goals. I get to organize my pantry any old way I want! I don't have to wait to start living. THIS is living. AND ... I don't have to wait until next week to move my desk. Thats how I spent parts of yesterday and today -- breaking down and moving the school-room. Not finished yet. But, YES I'm doing it and YES we can have pizza for dinner and YES we took today off from school and the world didn't end and YES I'm feeling very ... empowered.

The children ... notice ... when I get like this. They've started suggesting projects. Lee is so thrilled with his room re-do that the others have asked for me to "do" theirs next. And then the playroom. And then the garage.

Tomorrow I'm going to finish moving the schoolroom. Sam will be back from vacation and help arrange the stuff and YES its super-fabulous to have a good interior designer walk through your house and say where stuff would look better and YES ... I'm. Going. To. Use. Power. Tools. Soon. YES! YES! YES!

Remember. Happiness is a choice! Hmmm. I sound like a woman thats had some chocolate. Maybe a lot of chocolate :)

UPDATE: I made it through ALL the children's rooms before collapsing. We have a new rule at our house. Mommy will not do this again. NEXT time she'll just sweep it up and throw it away. They kinda looked at me cautiously out of the corner of their eyes. I think they believe me :)
