My goal is to write everyday for the next 30 days about gratitude and my life. I feel like I've gotten away from being so vocal about gratitude. Here's my gratitude for today.
I spent all day, and I do mean all day, trying to perfect a 90 degree cut. You would think cutting hair would be easy. You line up and then you cut. That's what I thought. Show me how to cut hair in a day and I can do it. Yet I was totally wrong. Today's cut involved pulling the hair out from the head 90 degrees and cutting it to a length of 3 inches. I just couldn't get it. At all. I was getting frustrated and I think I was frustrating my teacher with all my damn complaining. I hate that I drove her nuts. I was THAT student. What a dork.
I kept working and working and working and then it clicked. The proverbial lightbulb. Boom. There it was. The cut. I did it!! And I managed to cut the shit out of my knuckle in the process.
Short and sweet. Tomorrow my goal is to blog about Halloween and the fun the girls and I had.
My Life in a Nut Shell
3 surgeries for Endometriosis, countless medications, and lots of difficult years trying to conceive. We put the medical stuff on hold and decided to work on being parents instead. In July of 2000 we were blessed beyond all measure with a phone call announcing the birth of our daughter, Megan. Megan's birth mother had given birth the day before and was leaving the hospital. We had no warning that Megan was coming. At 4:29 in the afternoon we were a couple, at 4:30 we were parents. Deciding that we wanted a sibling for Megan, we looked into all our options. This time insurance covered IVF. One round and we were blessed with triplets, Abigail, Brigid, and Caroline. Did you know that there is a 70% chance of divorce in families of Higher Order Multiples? Almost two years after the triplets were born my ex-husband and I separated and eventually divorced. During that time both my Mother and Father passed away from cancer. In February of 2007 my sister came to live with us to help out. In December of 2008 she had to leave so now it is me on my own with the girls. In February 2010, Lisa passed away and finally found her own Peace.
