Thank you Universe for the blessings and…

Thank you Universe for the blessings and being so good to me. The past few days have been lovely. I’ve felt content and at peace in my little bubble, as my aunt calls it. Spending time with my husband and our boy at home, cuddling, singing, cooking, acting silly, etc. My phone has been off and I welcomed the silence, a break from the intrusion of the outside world. My mother stopped by yesterday for a little bit to see the babe and shower him with kisses. She was on her way to work. Since my win, her worries….financial anyway, are few. She mentioned not working but so far she’s still going. I know she plans on redoing the kitchen at least. My aunt also dropped by. She “scolded” me for hibernating, for being too comfortable inside the bubble with my little family. I smirked and shrugged. We went out for Dunkin Donuts. We could have taken the 2014 ford focus st. Cute sporty little thing that I knew she’d like. Couldn’t convince her to get a different color though. Red as usual. I felt like walking. I bundled up my little lamb and we walked. Hubby had left already for the store, he planned on making dinner. His flu seemed to have flown. I looked out for some theraflu for him anyways. No luck. Gotta keep it in the front of my mind/heart to express my love, appreciation, support and gratitude for him/to him. He accepts my little quirks although I know they bug him. He’s been in the house with us for several days, and not just because he was sick. This says alot since hubby is very much a social butterfly and appears to need lots of stimulation, sights, sounds, movement. It tends to drive him bananas being cooped up for too long but here he was at home and I was content. Also grateful that the Universe has provided financial abundance to an amazingly awesome degree. This goes beyond simply being able to afford the cars, condos, houses, trips, etc for myself and family but appreciative of the time with each other the freedom of money allows us to have. Aunty and I hit the elevator and travel down to the lobby. We pass the security personnel and I speak briefly to them. Usually I head left for the garage. Eager to step inside my Souped up mustang, push the start and hit the gas. Feeling invincible and unstoppable within its jet black interior but my vibe is more subdued so I go with it. One foot in front of the other, off to the store. Today, I just feel like Tee. Hair done but in a cute ponytail, pedicure, manicure, fitted jogging suit to show off some of the work I’ve done at the gym.

Aunty prattles on about my hiding again. Not letting the world in or more importantly not seeing the world. Not seeming to fully enjoy what I’ve been blessed with. I am enjoying it, I’m still getting use to it. Skeptical of a few things/people because of my new fortune. Moving slowly, taking it in. I am happy.

Today is the type of day that I love. It…

Today is the type of day that I love. It’s almost perfect. I’m sitting in our den with the fireplace on but with the flames on the low side. Enjoying a cup of tea, playing music on my Ipod while watching our son sleep cozily nearby in his pack and play. Our son is beautiful, blessed and healthy. We love him so much. My husband is in the living room with the flu unfortunately. Dozing off and on, surrounded by fluffy comforters, stretched out on our 12 piece black leather sectional. If it weren’t for the occasional rise and fall of the blankets or a sniffle or 2, I wouldn’t know he was there. Baseball game broadcasting loudly from the 82 inch plasma TV. Even though its been months since its been purchased, I still feel weird about having a TV that large but I’m happy. We’re happy. I tell Mr. Man to go upstairs to the bedroom where he might be more comfortable, where he can stretch out on the King Sized bed. Of course he says No, he’s ok where he is. I think he likes being downstairs with his family near. He also enjoys being near the kitchen where he can rummage for snack after snack. What a difference a win makes! I am grateful for the weight that has been lifted. Now I can stay home with our son. Mr. Man doesn’t have to ever worry about working but I know that he still will. I’ll still put in some work with Chris because it provides me with a challenge. I love the high rise that we live in, I love the views overlooking the city. I love that we have around-the-clock security, I love that we have our own floor as well. So much gratitude, appreciation and love! My son coos sleepily from his pack and play. I stare at him again in love and wonderment. Love the little guy. I love the big guy too. I cuddle with my hubby so that he doesn’t feel left out. His body temperature is hot but he welcomes the attention even in his half asleep state. We wrap arms and legs around each other for a few minutes before we let each other go. No need for both of us to be sick. I head to the kitchen in search of theraflu.

I’m still trying to get the hang of all of the cabinets, nooks and crannies of the kitchen and its layout. Always wanted a beautiful kitchen which would inspire me to cook, but right now I’ll settle for just being able to find what I’m looking for. I hear a subtle noise and realize that its drizzling outside.

I watch the raindrops as I set up the coffee/tea machine to get the hot water going for my hubby’s drink. I think on how so many things have changed over the past few weeks. Winning this insane amount of money, marrying my high school sweetheart, and us loving each other and enjoying the good life! more to come <3
