on the up and up?

This week is starting off well. And I don't want to jinx it. But maybe 2007 is finally taking a turn for the better. The magic 8 ball has to give me some good news sooner or later.

First, Great-grandma2Amara was released from the hospital. Thank God!

And remember my top 10 reasons why all moms go to heaven? Well the great ladies at the Crazy, Hip Blog Mamas have informed me that I am one of their grand prize winners!

Side note: Have you noticed I have already said "God" and "heaven" in my post? How very Catholic of me!

The only thing that could top this week is finding out a way to make "being Mom2Amara" a six-figure empire. Guess many other blogs are capable of doing. At least that's what an article in today's Boston Globe says.

I am in the process of doing a thorough spring cleaning on my two closets. I have organized my shoes (and it's quite impressive to say the least). And my clothes are now organized by season, type, and color. I need to make room for all of the great new summer dresses I plan on buying! Hey, we're not moving so I have a few more dollars to work with now!
today's good: Even with our 40 mph wind gusts, I went for a run yesterday. The resistance was incredible, and as tired as I was afterwards, it really felt great to hit the pavement!
today's bad: For the first time in a long time, I don't have a bad to report just yet. I sit waiting for my new purse and my new necklace. And I'm getting antsy over it. But if that's the biggest of my worries right now, I think I'm heading in the right direction.
