Someone needs to tell you. You've become...dare i say it...a little negative.
Your having trouble seeing the positive. Lately, you're focusing a lot of your energy on things that you cannot change and not focusing enough of your energy on the things you can change.
You really need to stop.
People aren't going to want to hang out with you.
Repeat after me...
It is okay if some people completely ignore your texts. Perhaps they are trying to give you a hint. They just don't want to talk to you. Instead of feeling hurt, consider it a blessing. If they don't have enough time to text you, they really aren't worth your time.
True...your kids have been fighting a lot. Try to notice when they aren't fighting as much as you notice when they are fighting. I think you might be surprised that they are actually getting along more often than they are fighting.
Simply put, some things are just out of your control. School budget cuts, field trip costs, cafeteria management changes, PTO drama...the list can go on and on and on. You cannot fix it. No matter what you do.
No matter what you do.
And you know what? That's okay.
Work on your book more. Scrapbook more pictures. Braid your daughters' hair. Get your toenails painted.
Focus less on the things you cannot change and more on the things you can.
I know you can do it.
But you have to be willing to try.

I use my blog to make others laugh, to share some cool crafts, to document my lunchlady adventures and to lament about the challenges faced by us all on the journey called life. Thanks for visiting. Please leave some crack...um...I meant some comments.
