Well, folks, it’s been another busy week around these parts. It seems like everyone I talk to is feeling overwhelmed with all there is to do. I guess that’s January for you. I’ve had so many half-formed blogs in my head, but just can’t get them typed out. Maybe bullet-points would be easier?
:: snow:: For some reason this winter has been getting to me. It’s our fourth one in the Midwest, but it’s really the first time I’ve been sick of it. It is snowing today, though, and it is gorgeous. All the needles on our pine tree are coated with it–it’s just mesmerizing to watch.
::red coat:: I’ve wanted one F-O-R-E-V-E-R. And now I have one. I am so stinkin’ happy. I found it on clearance at Target, so that was a double bonus. It’s bright, cherry red, down to my knees, simple, button-up, and has a faux-waistband that makes me look fabulous. Or at least feel fabulous, which really, isn’t that the same thing?
::sweetness:: I just love my husband. He has been so sweet lately. Yes, even sweeter than usual. He brought me flowers, took me on a fabulous date, and really listened to me. I could just talk and dream with that man for hours. He also sacrifices every single day for our family. He pulled an all-nighter last night just to keep up with all the work he has on his plate. And he still won’t let me leave without a kiss. Love him.
::giggles:: Parker has been full of them lately. And singing. That boy loves to sing. He is always asking me to sing the Itsy Bitsy spider. It gets a little old, but his expression never does. Watching him light up is the highlight of my day.
::food:: I haven’t been eating much of it lately. Although it is on my mind constantly. Yep, I’m on a diet. It’s high-time for the baby weight to be gone all ready. I’m basically limiting myself to lots of veggies, protein, good fats, and whole grains. The food is delicious, but I still miss my chocolate. A Lot.
::peace:: I’ve been feeling a lot of it lately. Which is unusual for me. I am actually content with life. Wow.
::reading:: I have been reading a ton lately. I went through our local used book store and came home with a handful of old classics. You know what? A lot of old classics are really depressing. I’ve read: Man in the Iron Mask, House with Seven Gables, Tess of the d’Urbervilles, Robinson Crusoe, and a few others I can’t recall at the moment. I still love to read classics, but give a girl some happy endings. Seriously.
What’s on your mind these days?
