Handy Manny Ain't Got Nothin' On Me!

You know. With Abel being a railroad conductor and always gone, I knew I was going to have to learn to be independant. But I didn't totally understand it until now. I'm so proud of myself and have reached that point today. I'm a single mother 3/4 of the time raising my two children and taking care of my father and his medical issues. Along with the daily duties of cooking and cleaning and taking care of the house and peole in it, I'm constantly running errands and grocery shopping and bill paying. Now if that weren't enough, things got really hectic with tax money coming in. Not in a bad way. But I ordered a lot of big things for Ignacio, such as a carseat, his high chair, his crib, a dresser, and other stuff. Plus we are STILL doing his room, so everything is sitting in the hallway or down here in the living room. It's worse than moving, at least when you move, things move. LoL. They are at a stand still here. Tomorrow, the painting will be done so I'm not worried about it, I can start moving things in his room. Finally. That's one part of my pride comes in. Except for the tearing down of wallpaper and putting up of sheet rocka nd mud and tape, I did my son's room. I painted. LoL. And today, I put together his crib. Woot-woot! I had both my husband and father tell me how I wasn't able to put it together and to just wait until this weekend when Abel would be home to do it for me. Well, it took me an hour and twice I had to take things apart, but by gum, I did it! Booyah! LoL. My bicycle came in today and that got put together by me as well. So I'm pretty handy right now. :D When everything else come sin, I won't even get nervous. I'm excited because I know, I can do it. What's that saying?? Tell me I can't and I will show you I can. yes. I will.

On another note. My Fed-Ex man? Pretty darn cute :) Hehehehe.....

Hope you all are having a fabulous day!

You go, Mama. I am the official assembler in this household. And painter. Also, every other chore except the lawn. I refuse to take that on. ;) Women are superheroes. We are highly underrated and extremely capable.

Go girl! I love it when I can put something together or fix something Michael told me to wait on and let him do it.

I'm in your boat. @ kids and 18 years of marriage to a man who has only been around maybe 7 years collectively.
It's good to be independent. SAVOR it. Your stronger, smarter, and more capable than you know.

ROCK ON MAMA!
