Magical Monday

This Magical Monday I’m grateful for:

* Cat piss. Stay with me. I actually hate cat piss, but I find it to be an extreme motivator. When one of our cats started peeing all over hubby’s clothes last Spring it motivated me to clean out our laundry room and to clean up his closet. Then his closet looked so good, I decided to clean mine out too. So, thanks to that cat-piss episode, our clothes and closets got super organized and have stayed that way for 7 months.  Fast forward to now: one of our kitties has been peeing in a corner of our taproom (we have a taproom in lieu of a formal dining room, complete with restaurant booth) and he’s been doing it for quite a while. Yesterday I had to really dig into that corner to clean it up, then I just started cleaning everything in that room and then decided to rearrange it (took me almost 4 hours!). So, now we not only have a sparkling clean taproom but it’s looks like a new room with it’s arrangement and I’m so pleased. We made sure to eat in there last night to celebrate. Thank you cat piss for being such a strong catalyst for change!

This Magical Monday I’m grateful for:

* My cozy, comfortable bed. And I really love snuggling with my 3 year old ~ my last co-sleeping child.

* Hot showers and epsom salt baths. Been spending a lot of time in the water.

* Fall scented candles.

* Tacos (a regular item on my gratitude list).

* A husband who picks up the slack when I’m not feeling great.

* Piles of leaves that make my boys happy.

* Pinterest. I’ve been making lots of aerial silks boards and being so inspired.

* Mexican Coke ~ it comes in a glass bottle and it doesn’t have high fructose corn syrup and it just tastes so yummy!

* Watching “Earth to Echo” with my boys this weekend and having them declare it “the best movie ever.”

I haven’t left the house in a week as I’ve been super-sick with some shitty cold.  Not only have I been sick, I’ve had to deal with migraines on top of the sickness. The hardest part of all this, is that this past weekend I had three whole days of aerial fun planned ~ Friday night was the open stage at my studio, where two of my classmates performed, Saturday was a 2 hour choreography workshop, and Sunday my classmates and I had a Russian Breakfast planned (two of my classmates are part of Russian families). This was to be my “Aerial Weekend” and I’d been looking forward to it so, so, so much ~ for inspiration, for giving me new ideas and for strengthening the Sisterhood between me and my classmates.  To me it represented New Life to my aerial silks practice (which I was so excited about in my last post on my aerial blog). It represented a New Beginning.

Magical Monday!

This Magical Monday I’m grateful for:

* Fulfilling my only 2014 goal ~ to rent a bouncy house (yes, I dream BIG!). My boys and I sat down at the beginning of 2014 and went over the things we’d like to do this year, and honestly, I just wanted to rent us a bouncy house for the fun of it! So yesterday, I did. And it was AWESOME!  It felt absolutely decadent renting something outrageous, not for any special occasion, but just for the enjoyment. We didn’t even care if friends could come play with us (which they did!) because we were so excited just to do this for our family. Still patting myself on the back for this one.

How could this not make you happy?

This Magical Monday I’m grateful for:

* Making it through another weekend without hubby seamlessly, while he was off running the VT 50. This used to be hard for me but now I’m quite good at it!

* Tacos! This is a family favorite, except for hubby, so we have them every time he leaves. We’ve eaten them for 3 meals now and it makes my life so easy…and yummy.

* Our kitties! I know I say this every time, but they just rock. We have one that sleeps next to our dog and one that sleeps next to our fish. Seriously, how magical is that?
