You are my sunshine my only... nope not really

My kid can be so sweet one minute and then the next minute he's just a big meanie.  Like Dr. Jekyll and Mr. Hyde.  Does he drink some potion in the middle of the conversations we're having and I just don't see it because he's also a ninja? And if he's ninja where did he get that skill from? I need to stop letting him take MMA and Civil Air Patrol.

So the Benefit Betties were on Great Day Houston this morning.  We were in the audience but still.  It just so happened that the only real shot you see me in is at the very end when they are scanning the audience and I am the last person you see. Zach watched the recorded show when he got home from school.

Zach: Wow mom, you're like at the VERY end.  You're the last thing people see.  You are probably the sunshine in their day.

Me: Awww Zach that's so sweet. 

Zach:  Yeah I mean they are probably thinking "If an unpopular person like her can make it on TV so can I" and that always makes peoples day! They will start believing they can do it too.

Me: Really?  you had to go there?

Zach: So when are you going to the big screens?  You've been on the small time screen, now it's time to move up.

I swear... goes from sweet to insulting all in a matter of seconds.

Not a real post... just lots of mushyness maybe... emotions blah!

I have to say that it has been extremely hard for me being laid up in bed with this broken foot.  I haven't wanted to do anything, including posting stuff on my blog.  I have felt left out from all the goings on my friends have been doing and the invites I haven't been getting.  I understand, I'm on crutches and inviting me out means you're sort of obligated to help me do things since crutches = not doing much for  yourself.  And I understand that sometimes I'm not invited out because people think that since I'm on crutches I probably wouldn't want to go (which who knows at the time it may have been true).  It's still nice to be invited though so you know you haven't been forgotten.  :(

Saying that I have to say that I am THANKFUL to be part of an amazing charity group called Benefit Betties.  These ladies are wonderful and I just don't have the words to describe how great they are.  They have been so supportive of me with this broken foot and have made a point to make sure I'm not left out when we are at events helping raise funds for the troops or our furry friends.  They make sure I have somewhere to sit and I'm still included in conversations and the fundraising and everything.

  I know this is just a small thing, but when you can't do anything for yourself (even for a short time) you start to feel like you are useless or worthless.  I personally hate asking people for help and I know my amazing son is tired of helping. I hate not being able to get up and get a drink of water and go back to my seat without someone having to carry the water for me.  The Betties and other people at the events we have been to haven't made me feel like I have been a burden to them at these events.  For that I am truly thankful.  Thankful to have such amazing people in my life and to be a part of a group that is so positive and supportive and do their best to make sure no one feels left out or bad. Joining the Benefit Betties has been one of the best decisions I have made in a while.  I love those ladies (and my kid of course). 

Didn't mean to get all mushy and what not just wanted to voice how thankful I am for the betties.  :)

On a side note, my son downloaded a new game on his phone called hungry shark or something like that. And you get to swim around and eat people!!! How awesome is that?!?!  want to take some anger out? Go be a shark and eat people!  Obviously you can eat fish and stuff too but the people part is more fun.
