Thursday morning was MUMS group. After 6 months of going, I finally know what MUMS stands for; Moms Uplifting Moms. Then I wondered where the Dad's go? There are dads who could use some inspiration every month. And what would we call that one? DUDS. Hmm?
Anyway, the topic this month was Mom Rage and how to handle it. Our speaker was a woman named Nicole, and she is a pastors wife with two boys, ages 5 and 2. She spoke about how she struggled with controlling her anger, her rage, around her children. She was so candid and honest, about a topic that most people don't talk about. She stood there in front of 50 or so Moms, and talked about her rage and the effect that it was having on her kids. This is one brave mama. Usually the speaker is given 30 minutes, but Nicole talked for an hour on Thursday. It made me feel much better about myself, b/c I get Mama Rage quite often. I am using her words as inspiration and since Thursday, I have been doing a much better job at controlling it.
In other news, my poor hubby is sick. He's been fighting it for awhile now, but today could no longer take it and went to the docs. He is on the verge of Bronchitis. So the doc gave him some anti-biotics and some strong cough medicine. Hopefully the drugs will kick in and he will be feeling all better.
Friday night we watched "Borat." I must admit that I laughed at lots of his crazy, rude antics. Tonight we are going to try to watch "Stranger Than Fiction," if Bob can keep his eyes open long enough to watch.
Today I finished "Devil Wears Prada" and it was magnificent. I had such a fun time reading it. Another blogger recommended reading Lauren Weisberger's
other novel, "Everyone Worth Knowing." I went to the library and picked it up, and started it tonight. I really can't comment on it yet, as I only made it through the first chapter.
Hope you are all enjoying the weekend. Don't forget to spring ahead tonight!
