100 Posts ~ Happy Valentine's Day

Happy Valentine's Day

Along with it being Valentine's Day, this is also my 100th post. I am in a somewhat better mood overall. It is still midwinter, snowy, grey, cold, and I've been pretty much stuck indoors for about a month, BUT I'm dealing with it better.

Kenzie is getting a little better as well. She has become so defiant lately. She screams if she does't get her way, and she growls at you. Then if she still doesn't get her way she ends up crying. For a while there it seemed like my whole day was filled with screaming and crying 24/7. It was driving me absolutely nuts. I just didn't know what to do.

I have a better grip on it now. I just have to remember to stay calm and not to let her get her way. She will figure out that it's not working for her and eventually quit. Like I said, she's already calming down some.

Some reflections on the blog: I started this as a way to vent my frustrations and fears of mommy hood. Also as an outlet for some of my more creative endeavors. It really has turned into more of a journel type blog. I have come a long way since I started. My emotions are so much more in check, I have gained some control over my panic attacks *which are almost non-existent now*. I am getting more and more back to my "normal" self every day.

I want to thank those of you who have been here for my journey so far. Your comments and support have helped me more than you know. Sometimes that lil friendly note made my day and kept me from totally losing it. Hugs all around and good feelings sent your way!

Special thanks go out to Diner Girl, E-dog, Bernie, and Velvet. You guys rock and thanks for reading my ramblings!

and on to other things:

concerning Valentine's Day,

Brad is such a good husband. He continues to make my dreams come true. Those of you who are regular readers might remember my post about concerts. One of my all time favorite groups is The Police. I have always regretted that I never saw them in concert.

My hubby who is awesome knows this and for Valentine's Day he got us tickets to see The Police at Madison Square Gardens!!!! A weekend in the city! My dream to see them in concert will come true! Whoooooo Hooooo! * yes I did the happy dance*

He also got me some beautiful roses and of course some yummy yummy chocolate! I love you baby!

I can't believe I'm going to see STING!!!!! *yes I'm happy dancing again*

Happy 100th and Happy Valentines Day. I enjoy reading your "ramblings."

OK, how did Brad score Police tickets in NYC when they're not even on sale yet? Actually, I probably know the answer to that. If they don't play DC, NYC is the show I'd like to see (or New Orleans).

Thanks Bernie,

I know I wish they would play somewhere closer to home. I wouldn't mind going to more than one show. :)

Happy (belated) Valentine's Day and congrats on your 100th post. Glad to hear you're feeling good..... perhaps it's some synchronicity?!?!!?

DG- Thanks and YES, I definitely think that must have something to do with it...or maybe the chocolate?
