Guilty of the following;

1. Thinking I have no time in the day, racing through the morning and realizing at about 1PM that, 'yes indeed, I do have enough time.'
2. Drinking my body weight in iced-coffee, but not just iced coffee, it's the 3ft of whipped cream that does me in, then drinking a glass of water to feel better about it.
3. Reading the 'Count of Monte Cristo' instead of, you know, showering.
4. Making the same meals on rotation and Andy asking me to branch out. What's wrong with chili and spaghetti?
5. I still hate poopy diapers, they never get easier for me. Does this make me less maternal?
6. Loving that song, 'Hey soul sister, hey there mister, mister.' I know it's pop crud, I still love it.
7. I had made this ideal schedule that looked something like this; 5am- workout, 6am-devos/school prep 7:30 breakfast, kids ready, school from 8:30-12 with breaks and chores in there. We were successful about a day. Yeah. It looks more like cuddle til 8-ish, school done by 2-ish.
Oh the fun guilty pleasures.

Should I be blogging right now?

Definite no. We need milk, River is awake and Andy is gimpy after Sunday football, but.... There's things I need to write down. Andy had big plans for ski patrol and all sorts of fun this winter that will now have to wait due to this new knee injury. Lily is obsessed with her American girl magazine and has began a heart system. She puts one heart if she kind of wants something, 2 hearts if she definitely wants something and a bzillion hearts if she will hold it against us later in life if she does not get that horse and sleigh for her American girl. She stays up looking at the magazine with a flashlight and pen every night. It's adorable and reminds me of 'Miracle on 34th St.' Claire is reluctant to turn 4 because I have told her to many times to, 'stay little.' It was obvious I took that too far when she told me, 'she did not want a birthday.'
Oops. Well our little man, is now on the move. He's been officially taking steps for a few days now.He's in the unrolling toilet paper, knocking down plants phase, fun fun. Don't worry about me, my plates are spinning, but not crashing to the floor. Homeschooling is a highlight and has been a great choice for our family structure. Andy did all the teaching yesterday, being couchbound and all. I started teaching zumba again, and love the sweet women and bonding that happens. I also had my first counseling session last night. It's different than you expect. It's not so much, 'How did that feel when you were 15...?' It's more establishing with them who we are positionally in Jesus and the difference that makes in every area of life. Of course with me something had to go a little wrong. I had an asthma attach at the very end. Real professional, me gagging,coughing and puffing on an inhaler. She mentioned she had 4cats and a dog. I said, 'Yeah, that's probably it.' Off to buy milk. Peace.

If you're married or will be someday.

Tune into these. They are frank, provocative and Biblical. I have been convicted and encouraged. They're a great date or to take on your ipod. You won't regret it!
