Five minutes inside my head.

A group of ladies over at The Gypsy Mama are doing a fun thing called Five minute Fridays. The challenge is to sit down and write for five minutes. No editing. No planning. Just write.

So here it goes. Five uninterrupted minutes inside my head.


START

Cooper is having a rough day. We had a fun morning at the park but for some reason he didn't want to eat any lunch and cried through our normal lunchtime. He went down for a nap 30 minutes earlier than he usually does. Now I can breathe. I need a Dr. Pepper. Why is caffeine so often my source of comfort? That's probably not a good thing. But IT is so good. Especially Dr. Pepper. I will probably take a drive to clear my head. How in the world do mom's with multiple kids keep their sanity. Maybe they don't. I am thankful for a boy who doesn't cry that often but oh when he does, it's draining. And I don't think I can even blame it on the terrible twos yet. Before I leave the house I'll have to clean up the kitchen and all the toys in the living room. I hate leaving the house with a dirty kitchen. I'm weird. Justin is working on a sermon today. He's preaching on Sunday and I'm really looking forward to it. He's such a great communicator. Gloria (mother-in-law) is graduating tomorrow. It's going to be 88 degrees. We are in for a long, hot day. On the bright side I got a new dress for $8 at a consignment store that I can't wait to wear:)

  1. Courtney, the fact that you can see the bright side of the terrible twos with a sermon, a graduation and a new dress is beautiful. You are a good momma. Thanks for the post, and have a lovely weekend. Rosanne

  3. I, too, have often wondered why I turn to my beverage of choice (coffee) when I am stressed!

    How do moms of more than one do it? We just do! :) I have 4, ages 18, 12, 9 and 6... Somehow we have survived!

    I hope you have a great weekend!

  4. I don't believe that sweet Cooper was crying ;-) my stress beverage of choice is also caffeine.

    1. It's true Jenna:) I know it's hard to believe. From one caffeine junky to another.

  6. Ok, so the new dress... were you wearing it today, because the dress you were wearing today was great, and you looked so good in it! I love finding cool clothes secondhand! There's just something about knowing I didn't break the bank on a single item that makes it much more enjoyable to wear. :) I really enjoyed being in your head for 5 minutes.

    1. Yes I was wearing my new dress yesterday! I actually bought it to wear to Justin's mom's graduation on Saturday but I loved it so much I wore it two days in a row! :) I love finding stuff second hand too. It's much more of a challenge and a fun one:)
