Daybook 2/28/11

  • Outside my window... bright blue sky and beautiful snow covered peak.
  • I am thinking... of all the cleaning I'd like to accomplish, but trying to keep it realistic. I tend to over-plan my days and end up feeling defeated when all I can get to during the day is changing dirty diapers. 
  • I am thankful for... a husband who is in this life with me. Yesterday we had a hard day with a sick child and a little one who cried non-stop. He launched into the day with me not backing away from household duties. It's not what he wanted to do on his day off, but he did it without complaining. 
  • From the kitchen... planning to make some chicken soup for lunch and ham, broccoli, potatoes for dinner. 
  • I am wearing... a happier face than yesterday! 
  • I am creating... an overabundance of compost. I need to empty out our bin into the garden plots and make room for stinky, black wonder. 
  • I am going... to go easy on myself today. 
  • I am reading... the New Testament in a year.
  • I am hoping... that Gage will get over his cold quickly. Wiping snot is not my idea of a good time. 
  • I am hearing... a song I haven't listened to in a long time. It's on the radio. "Should I Stay or Should I Go" by The Clash
  • Around the house... I love the sun coming into the methlab (long story on the name of that room... ask me if you are interested). I love the new open space in there for Gage to play.  
  • A few plans for the rest of the week... library time, getting out in the nice weather - maybe a trip to the park, wiping snotty noses, changing dirty diapers, helping language development, reading Goodnight Moon too many times. 
  • A picture to share:

Nice list Sarah! Applause! Maybe the 'methlab' story would be a good blog post? ;-) Hope your kiddos get better soon!

Love that picture of Gage! Sorry he's been sick and Mia's been cranky. Hope everyone is feeling better quickly!
