OK, so to be honest I have just been grumpy this week. So first of all I am thankful to my blogger friend Linny for getting me started on Thankful Thursday because it just makes me really think of something positive.
I have had a not so Christian attitude this week. Chris and I are really careful how we spend our money. We rarely spend money on things that we just want. We have been married 10 1/2 years and have bought 1 yes 1 piece of new furniture. We bought a recliner and that was only because I needed a place to nurse Amaya. This week I told Chris that I want a mattress that is comfortable and a table that's not ready to fall apart. Chris said to me "that's just not our taste Sarah". OK so the not so happy wife said yes it is and someday I will have those things.
I honestly get mad at myself for having the desire to have nice things when so many people have nothing. God has blessed us so much and my sinful nature just wants more. I want a nice house and I want nice furniture, not expensive but not falling apart either.
I am also going through winter depression. OK already, I'm tired of snow, tired of 0 degrees and ready to get the kids outside playing. I NEED SUN!
The kids just woke up grumpy today and that was making me grumpy. I emailed my friend Rett and told her I needed a date night and guess what? Chris' grandma called and said she wanted the kids on Valentine's Day, Whoo Hoo. So the second thing I am grateful for today is grandma's that call and tell me to have some alone time with my hubby. What do people do that don't have grandma's around to help out? Chris and I said for a long time we would like to move to Arizona, Colorado or somewhere just warm, beautiful or heck better yet both but we just couldn't leave those good grandma's.
