Doing it alone Current mood: pleased

SO today I took on the task of putting together a huge trampoline alone- without the help of another adult and let me just say- it was a sight to see!
There I was- leg hiked up on the trampoline pole, garden gloves on my hands, pulling the springs to the holes- it is not as easy as it might seem! Once it got down to the last 20 springs it was hard labor!!! I am sure the 50 people that drove my house and saw me in my front yard sweating, pulling, leg hiked up pushing the pole- thought I was a complete lunatic! BUT I promised my kids we would put the trampoline together today after school and darn it I was going to do it for them- and do it alone! I have not felt such accomplishment in a long time as I did when I got that last spring in its hole! My kids were so happy and so proud of my hard work- it was a proud moment of single motherhood- I love this journey of doing it alone! Very rewarding in more ways than one!
I love being a mom and I love my children- they make all this drama fade away and they are certainly worth the drama I have to put up with!
