I’m coming to you today in a little of a complain fest but also a bit of an epiphany. I came into my bedroom the other day after a shower and caught one of my older children using my deodorant. Now mind you, I put my deodorant in my room because I am so tired of it being used. I felt like that would be the best place to protect it, and the kids would not know. Needless to say it didn’t work, but that wasn’t what threw me over the edge. The thing that threw me over the edge was finding Ellie with my toothbrush in her mouth. Unfortunately, this isn’t the first time I have experienced one of my children misusing my toothbrush. No joke! One time I caught Reggie playing in the toilet with it. He was 2 at the time. Anyway, I know she's my daughter, and I give her kisses, but to me that is one of the most disgusting things on the planet. I went on a rampage through the house proclaiming at the top of my lungs that I have nothing sacred. There is nothing that is just mine.
Another day of not very much sleep the night before. Something that most people don’t know about me is I struggle with sleep. I’m not sure if it runs in the Tracy family or not, but I do know that there are quite a few of us that don’t sleep well. Usually when I can’t sleep, I turn on a movie on my DVR or something from Apple TV because, let’s face it, in the middle of the night even the commercials are too racy. Last night I chose the movie “Olympus has Fallen”. This is with Gerard Butler and was a fantastic movie. I will say it’s probably not safe to watch outside of TV as it has a lot of swearing, but in this case, it was recorded off of TV and was really great.
