*Today I am thankful that I was able to sneak a nice nap with Little One tucked snugly in my arms. A nice cuddle was had by all.
*DD2 has come up with new lyrics to a song that we sing at church that include the line "Jesus crackered the grave". The original: Jesus conquered the grave.
*I have determined that I am unreasonable sensitive during the time immediately preceding my shedding and have resolved to be more reasonable during that time frame in the future.
*I am really looking forward to spending time with the in-laws in just a few weeks. We always have a great time and this year we're going to see our friends from VA again as we'll all be rallying around DH's parents' place. What fun! I just have to remember to take my allergy medicine along. And bring additional tranquilizers in the form of childrens' dimetap for their skittish dog. Their skittish, epileptic dog.
*I was able to pick up a few things for the girls' Christmas presents this week and that makes me feel like I've got a small lead on the holidays. And that feels good.
*I have lots of crafty ideas running through my head that I'd really like to get done this week which means I'll likely be motivated to do the laundry early tomorrow to get it out of the way. ::crossed fingers::
*I lost a few more pounds recently which brings me within the 5 pound PM/PHSW (pre-marriage/post high school weight).
*DH brought up the idea of renewing our vows next year for our tenth anniversary. I thought that was very sweet, and very unlike him. While DH can be very sentimental, he's not typically very thoughtful in this area--kudos to him for being a forward thinker this year!
*Been listening to a lot of Brian Doerksen lately and while SOME of his lyrics can lean towards being cheesy, a good portion of his songs are very stirring and I love the laid back, easy feel to them. The atmosphere of worship isn't contrived which brings a deep down peaceful feeling that makes my heart feel full.
*Little One has started giving what she terms "Puppy Kisses" which involved her licking your cheek with her soft little tongue and then smiling. Lots of great big smiles. It's cute and while I do get covered in drool, it warms me down the the core.
*I love my family. I love being a mom. There are ups and downs, but the pros far outweigh the cons and I know that I have been blessed beyond measure. And there is more to come. For me, that is all I need.
