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…

Time // 5:30 a.m. Place // my desk at home. Eating // refrigerator oatmeal. Drinking // coffee. Watching // nothing at all lately. Reading // Happier at Home by Gretchen Rubin. Wanting // to build up a stash of note cards and be more diligent about sending them for birthdays, anniversaries, and just for fun. Thinking // about how glad I am that David is home from his trip. Single parenting is exhausting! Creating // cards for Mother’s Day, a cross stitch about a quarter of the way finished that I’ve kind of stalled out on, and am ready to start sewing my quilt. Hoping // to make a trip to the garden center over the weekend and bring home a…

Playground fun over the weekend. *** Time // 6:47 p.m. Place // home at my desk Eating // cold pizza and strawberries Drinking // cold water Watching // nothing now but I did see Olympus Has Fallen over the weekend and it was intense but good. Reading // Matched by Ally Condie. I just needed something quick and light. Wanting // a new pair of earrings because I recently lost one of my only pair. I am always losing one earring. Thinking // about how I hardly ever use Instagram anymore, and how I need to remedy that. Creating // trying to complete my woven wall hanging before month’s end. Hoping // Meredith’s epic struggle with teething will end soon. She’s soooo slow…
