For Today ~ June 18, 2009
Outside my window... IT. IS. HOT!!!
I am thinking... that I should never watch "So You Think You Can Dance" when I am having an emotional day. If you don't watch it, you should! Jonathan and Karla's contemporary piece to "Falling Slowly" had me bawling like a baby. I am now obsessed with that song (as you can see from my Playlist below because I have two different artists singing it .. in my opinion, Kris Allen rocks on that song!!!) Wow I love that show!!
I am thankful for... the creator of stool softeners, who may just be God Himself. That's all I'll say about that.
From the learning rooms... (from Eli) Step 1. We do not touch the coffee pot. Step 2. We do not bother mommy when she is going potty. Good rules to live by.
From the kitchen... I'm blasting the music on my Blog's Playlist.
I am wearing... my p.j.s
I am creating... a grocery list and perfecting the kids' summer point system.
I am praying ... for friends who are in pain, both physically and emotionally.
I am going... to have a good day today! It all starts with the attitude.
I am reading... "Secrets" by Jude Deveraux.
I am hoping... I am able to increase my range of activity and start to sleep without so much discomfort.
I am hearing... Jon Schmidt rock it on the piano, and Eli playing upstairs.
Around the house... are all those household chores I can't do because of my surgery. Upstairs are 4 preteen boys still sleeping at 10 a.m. and Eli playing. The girls are babysitting next door.
One of my favorite things... is the aroma of my container garden! The tomato plants smell so good combined with the basil, oregano and rosemary! I currently have 4 tomatoes, one green bean and one zucchini. Can't wait for them to ripen!
A few plans for the rest of the week... I'm going to go get groceries today and am looking forward to spending time with Rick tonight. Tomorrow I have my second post-surgical doctor's appointment in the afternoon and then Rick and I are going to go out to dinner and do some shopping. On Saturday Kyndal is babysitting in the evening, so we'll just plan to spend some time together at home during the day. Sunday is Father's Day. Since Rick's birthday and our anniversary were disappointing to me (because I was down and out) I'm going to fix his dinner of choice and shower him with love, love, love!! We'll have our second "Taulman Team Meeting" at 5:00 p.m. sharp and then share dinner together.
Eli's very first trip down the big twisty slides at Big Splash!!! Big Day!
