currently (& a new feature)

August 1, 2014

New favorite picture of the kids. Every other Friday I’ve been sharing links to some good stuff I found around the Internet. On the other Fridays I like to pop in with a quick personal post, and today I want to add a feature to those “currently” posts. One of the podcasts I love is called One Bad Mother (warning: there are swears) and every week they share their genius & fail moments as a parent. It’s probably my favorite part of the show, and I thought it would be fun to share my own personal genius & fails with y’all every couple of weeks. And of course, I’d love it if you’d chime in with your own! Genius : getting myself…

snacking on dark chocolate covered almonds. limiting dairy in my diet because it makes me feel bloated. hoping it doesn’t rain tomorrow for Meredith’s birthday party in the park. keeping the party stuff simple. starting a new daily photography project involving my Instax. wishing for a digital camera other than my iPhone. itching to tweak my blog design. loving my morning Bible study time. evaluating our budget. planning my whole-life personal organization notebook. needing to dig deep for patience with the kids sometimes. missing one of the daycare teachers who I’d come to like, who just left to continue her schooling. enjoying the company of David’s aunt who is in town. taking Liam for his six-month checkup this afternoon. feeling energized…

Other than the Bible this book has been the most influential on my spiritual life and from the very first pages I feel deeply moved. wanting a blender for smoothies. It doesn’t have to be a nice one, just functioning. surprised to find a $50 gift card to Target in my wallet that I haven’t used. How did that happen? Might use it for the blender! excited about the new (free!) gym opening up at work. It’s going…

returning to our routine after last week’s hospital visit. learning to administer nebulizers to a baby, and praying he doesn’t develop asthma as a result of this RSV. coughing up a storm. grateful for my short commute (as I am everyday…I don’t know if the excitement over it will ever wear off). sleeping poorly still; between my sore throat, Liam’s coughing, and our dog, something is always waking me up. drinking two cups of coffee per day. contemplating posting to the blog five days a week; I’m very inspired right now but I’m not convinced I could maintain it in the future. spending my downtime at work (which is a lot) taking continuing education classes. preparing to press my quilt rows…

wishing my husband a happy birthday anticipating some alone time with him tonight and this weekend pleased that my family got him Apple TV just in time for maternity leave holding back from making any goals for the year since it’s so in my nature to do so, but still… forming a list of things to do on maternity leave really into cross stitch again and looking forward to sharing more works-in-progress and finished projects contemplating buying  this loom kit to try more weaving projects sleeping poorly and propped up taking down holiday decorations a little at a time drinking orange juice every morning and evening amused and exasperated in equal parts that Meredith hates changing clothes these days grateful…
