The Top Ten Mistakes

Yesterday was Mom's Together. Gretchen invited me, I invited Heather, Heather invited Margaret (another neighbor who actually knew about it, but started coming again). So, we're getting quite the crowd!

The topic was Top Ten Mistakes Even Good Parents Make. I won't give you the whole list, but I did kind of choke up at the reminder of thinking about how I feel when treated in a way I may treat Lubbock. It's a commonly heard refrain "do unto others as you would have done unto you." But, you can never be reminded enough.

My promise to myself for yesterday was to remember this before reacting. So, I laughed more and yelled less. And even remembered this when Kevin asked for cornbread ten minutes before dinner was ready. Yes, I can make that.

Today will be a good day, too (positive thinking).

I probably won't get to write much since I'm headed downtown later to a piano bar with Heather, some of her friends, and maybe even Moshmee and Nadine will come by since Moshmee gets in town tonight! She's staying in the city until Sunday evening and will then grace the suburbs with her presence!

One more thing, for lots of pictures of pretty things ... check out Knack.
