Current Events

I love this thought via this etsy shop via pinterest

I am currently:
-wrapping up Sunday preparations.  Tomorrow is the primary program, the day when the primary children do the program for the whole congregation during sacrament meeting.  I am so excited for the kids to show what they've been working on.  And I am also so excited for it to be done.

-fighting the tickle in my throat that's been coming around nightly for the past three days.  Luckily it goes away the next morning (so far), I'm just hoping I can keep it that way. Come on, Emergen-C!

-happy after a day full of good news at doctor appointments yesterday.  Baby looks good at the 10 week mark.  The  muffin did not react to tree nuts or eggs, so he seems to be outgrowing some of his allergies!  Hooray!  And there were no cavities for the big kids at the dentist yesterday.  High fives all the way around.

-feeling a little guilty about skipping out on the blog all week.  Life just happens.  I've still been trying to play along on the happy day challenges.  Some days are easier than others, but I always feel better when I make a deliberate effort to think about others, and sometimes it's nice to have the service already thought out for me.

-thankful for good friends.  I received happy mail this week from an old friend I worked with during college.  She sent me an envelope full of comics all pertaining to pregnancy just to lighten my mood and distract me from the blahs.  It was so thoughtful and unexpected- the perfect pick-me-up.  I have some pretty amazing women in my life and I am grateful for their influence for good.

-satisfied with my dinner performance this week.  It wasn't perfect, but 4 out of 7 dinners being thought out, well-balanced, and planned ahead was definite improvement from where we have been lately.

-warming up to the holiday season.  I suppose I've started to realize that summer is indeed over and I should embrace this time of year.  This week was a flurry of email activity with Thanksgiving menu planning.  This year we're doing Thanksgiving two days in a row with different sides of the family, and I'm excited to be a part of double feasting/cooking/planning.  It's one of the best holidays, I must say.

-grateful for the designated day to honor our veterans yesterday.  What amazing sacrifices by so many.  I am humbled by their service.

-a total cryer.  I'm pretty sure by the time the primary program is over tomorrow any ounce of make-up I put on in the morning will be gone.  I'm trying to be tough, but really there is no fighting it right now.

Hope to be back soon!
