Things may have been rough, but I’ve managed to stay on top of it. And I’m proud of myself!

Despite all the stress I think I’ve managed turn things around for the better. And in doing so, I’ve even managed to keep the level of stress under control. Never knew I could do that!

And then there were long and difficult talks with teachers and principals. And they went well too, even though I went to tell them they weren’t doing their work properly; that their school wasn’t functioning properly. I managed to do it without anger and instead be firmly grounded in my confidence that we were making the right decision in pulling our kids out of that school. And then to see Nevynn so relieved and so happy! What a reward!

It’s okay that my house looks like a war zone now. And it’s okay that I haven’t managed to work on my journalling classes yet. And that I quit my painting lessons. I’ve been a good mom and that matters more than what any unannounced visitor thinks of my house.

Well, before you start believing that I’m actually posting a huge brag session about myself, I’ll finish this message. I just wanted to let you guys know that I’m grateful for all the support I’ve had. It’s really helped me keep my chin up. And that we’re doing well and that I’m doing well.
