-thrilled that the husband came home today. He's been catching up on rest and helping out when he can and I'm grateful to see him improving. The kids are elated to have him home. Things feel better with all of us together.
-listening to the hum of the dryer. I've been trying to play catch up around here after the craziness of the last few days. Laundry has been #1 on the agenda. Bathrooms and floors are waiting for me tomorrow.
-grateful for dinner from a friend tonight. We got home this afternoon and the errands of school pick-ups and prescription pick-ups and settling back in and late day craziness ensued. One less thing to worry about was so very appreciated.
-wrapped up in primary. There is a constant list of things to do. I wonder if it will ever slow down or if it's the nature of the beast.
-spinning wheels on a variety of things. I'm mulling over good reading and great talks I've heard recently and trying to figure out where they fit for me. I'm sure you haven't heard the last about this.
-nostalgic for the baby days. The summer stole my baby and left me with a toddler. He barely walked in time for summer (late bloomer? yes), and now he's thrilled by the chase. His limbs stretched out, taking some of the baby rolls with them. His vocabulary has expanded as his cries for "READ" have increased. He is quite a ham and brings such joy. But oh I'd love to rewind his baby days just a little bit. He'll be 22 months this weekend. Time flies.
-craving routine. This week hasn't exactly gone according to plan, and I'm ready to get back to the habits I've been working to create. We're still improving our groove and figuring out the best times of day for various tasks. Piano practice works best before school. Reading can wait for after school. Chores are still looking for a permanent place. So is exercise (on my schedule, at least). I feel bad for Miss A and can relate to the trial-and-error feelings of being the oldest. I'm still learning how to handle our increasingly busy schedules, and she's good to be patient as I figure things out.
-ready for bed. Sleep hasn't been the greatest this week.
Be back soon with some recipes and sundry thoughts to share.
