Okay, so here's my three things. You know what's funny? After writing yesterdays, I had ideas of like 10 more. This could probably snowball into 100. It's funny how counting your blessings can do that.
But here's today's 3:
- My oldest daughter is wowing me with her drive and initiative. She is riding her bike to and from school most days, working on Safety Patrol (helping those cute little kids across the street on their way to school) and then going to soccer practice for an hour after school. I am SO pleased that she is working this hard but also that her school is providing so many opportunities. She is a little bundle of energy so I always appreciate (free) activities being available for her participation. I love that she gets to learn to play the viola, and have soccer both for free through her school.
- I have 79 blog followers! Every little one that adds themselves means a lot to me. 2 people decided to "unfollow" a few days ago. It was the day I posted pictures for my little guy's birthday. Could be too much "family stuff" shared or simply offended by the title about 9/11? Who knows. What I do know is 3 people quickly filled their space and then more came and it just tickles my little heart that people are willing to read what I write and put forth. I've worked hard to post every day this year, and I will continue to do so to reach the goal for myself, but knowing I have a community, ever so small, who is interested feels good too. I am extremely isolated these days due to my mental issues, like random panic attacks, so having even behind-the-computer interactions with you all means more than you know. I appreciate other bloggers who put themselves out there so I can connect with them too.
- ZUMBA baby! I went to zumba again. I had purchased a 20 class punch pass, and realized I haven't even used half. Why have I not gone for so long? Anyway, it was nice to sweat. I get a little tired of the same songs and same dances, I'll admit...but there aren't many other dancy exercise classes around here, so I'm glad I can go to it, and it's already paid for!
