Karma Shmarma

So, what happens after I pronounce my faith in good karma and making others happy? My apartment building has a massive fire! And Reillys room smells like a camp grounds. My poor girl is sleeping in her pack n play in the spare room.

I will say that she has been sleeping like a rock in there! 12 straight hours two nights in a row! A mom could get used to that. So, here is the thing, the title of the post is just for giggles. Karma is definitely real... This fire was unbelievable, and there is a hallway that leads to an "emergency door" in the nursery and all we got was an offensive smell. My complex is repainting Reilly's room, cleaning the carpets AND installing an ozone filter in there. We were lucky indeed. No significant damage to our things, and no one injured. A neighbor in the building, who noticed the fire, ran through knocking on doors and telling people to get out....Good Karma is coming his way for sure.

Worst. Blogger. Ever.

Seriously, I am. Until yesterday, I honestly totally forgot that I had even started a blog. Let me just say that even the most awesome, put together, intelligent, strong woman (me) cant be perfect. This has been a really crazy year for me. I've been raising a truly amazing little girl alone while Eric is away. He is due home in a matter of weeks now, just an FYI. I cant wait for him to really get to know her, and vice versa. I have done my best to post pictures and videos and keep him updated on her life and progress, but it doesnt even come close to being with her. More about Eric and Reilly in another post though. Today I want to help a friend help the world :) I have this pretty awesome friend back in NY who is so thoughtful, soulful, eloquent and kind. Everything she says, writes, thinks, and dreams is so inspiring to me, and its refreshing to be inspired by ANYTHING when so much is wrong with the world today. She is really amazing at finding the good in the world and i'd like to do the same. She has a blog (that she actually writes on) and Im going to steal one of her ideas (that she stole from someone else). Random Acts of Kindness. She is doing 27 before her 28th birthday. Im going to tweak it a bit, and after the holidays I will do 31 acts before my 32nd birthday. For now, Im going to focus on 10 Acts. So that is about 1 per week until Christmas. I figure that is a good start. I hope that this will inspire someone else to be randomly kind, like my friend inspired me.

Happy Friday!!
