For Today ~ December 15, 2009

Outside my window... it's sunny and beautiful! But, don't be deceived ... it's also 20 degrees!

I am thinking... about how I need to get busy because I have so much to do today!

I am thankful ... for the ability to stay home with my children when they are sick without the worry of missing a day, or more, of work.

I am wearing... my pjs and robe (at 10:25 a.m.), but am planning to get in the shower and get changed in a minute.

I am remembering... my workout from yesterday .. yow!

I am creating... the pieces to the stocking craft for Eli's school Christmas party on Thursday.

I am going... to have to take Eli out with me today to grocery shop, even though he is on the tail end of being sick. (I promise to wipe down the grocery cart with an anti-bacterial wipe!)

I am reading... The Lucky One by Nicholas Sparks (yes, still ... again), and the Bible in my SOAP study on Love.

I am hoping... that we are able to get our house sold sooner than later so that we can move forward with our dream to move.

On my mind... is how to punch holes cleanly through felt.

From the learning rooms... Finals week for the older two ... so lots of studying, or cramming, as the case may be!

Pondering these words ... "We should not always expect or readily desire comfort and earthly prosperity, as this world encourages us to attain. Instead, we should look for ways to serve our families, expecting trials, knowing that by choosing to live the more challenging life we will be made wise through our faith in Jesus!" ~ comforting yet challenging words from Lisa Metzger in her article "Carefree Living .. Is it for Me?" submitted on At the Well ... In Pursuit of Titus 2.

From the kitchen... we're eating some special requests and trying a couple of new things.

Around the house... there are Christmas gifts stashed everywhere! I need to get started wrapping!

One of my favorite things... is having a sick (but not too sick) kid. Come on moms, don't we just love when they revert back to sweet, cuddly babies who need us???

A few plans for the rest of the week... I'm going grocery shopping this afternoon. We are sticking close to home all week getting ready for finals. Eli's all day Christmas party is on Thursday, and I'm homeroom mom (so there's lots to do!) Then Brynne's party is Thursday afternoon and I'm slipping out to go to that, too. I have about 6 dozen cookies to bake for their parties. And both of them have pj days at school on Friday. Rick leaves on Friday to go to Reno to visit his mom, dad and brother who live there. His sister is already there (she lives here) so they will have a nice little family reunion. Kyndal and my niece go to the Justin Bieber concert on Sunday night, so my mom, sister and niece will be here for that. Not much going on, really.

From my picture journal.

Although I hate decorating, I love the way our house looks when it is.
