FOR TODAY December 18, 2012
Outside my window…it’s dark and the skies are clear suggesting freezing temperatures but no rain. Boo.
I am thinking…about all of the Christmas cards I have to write and send out.
thankful…for a warm bed, good food, and my family.
In the kitchen…my husband is cleaning up and just started the dishwasher.
I am wearing…my pajamas!
creating…special Grandparents gifts and a list of GD friendly snacks.
I am going…to read a chapter each of The Hobbit and By the Shores of Silver Lake before going to bed.
I am wondering…about removing my polyp, my diet, and if we’ll have a new addition to our family in July. God, I hope so.
reading…The Hobbit, By the Shores of Silver Lake (book 5 in the Little House series) and Oliver Twist. I have to have more than one book going.
I am hoping…for good news this Friday (Anne’s spectrum evaluation), a relaxing Christmas, and good news with my appt. Jan 3rd.
I am looking forward to…July 2013, seeing the Hobbit on a triple date for free, and a day off for my husband.
learning…to trust in God, to have more patience with my children, and fine motor activites to do with Annie. Google rocks!
Around the house…the kids are in bed asleep…finally, my husband is reading right next to me and the dishwasher is humming.
I am pondering…what things to pack for Annie’s three hour psychology appt. so she is comfortable and what to eat for breakfast. I can’t help the latter, I’m pregnant and ravenous.
quote for today…”Merry Christmas mama!”~Mikey
One of my favorite things…seeing my kids interact with each other and the affection they have for their siblings and for their poor tired parents. Philly runs up to me and leaps into my lap shouting “huggy” and Mikey randomly hands his beloved dump truck to Annie to play with. I also enjoy the moment when my husband gets home from work and the evening magically falls into easy street.
A few plans for
the rest of the week: hanging out next door with my SIL’s family, Annie’s appt., and our new stove being delivered so I can actually cook a frozen pizza and sweet potato fries.
A peek into my day…I didn’t take any pictures today but if I had you would have seen all three kids wearing knit hats banging on drums with kitchen spoons keeping time to “Little Drummer Boy.” That’s how we roll.
