One girl at school. Two down for naps. Laundry in the dryer. Kitchen floor swept. Counters wiped. Dishes in the dishwasher. Windows open. Breeze blowing in. My Bible, journal, can of Coke with a straw… Six years ago, I would have totally taken an afternoon like this for granted. Now, I think it’s paradise.
Just wanted to take a quick xanga break before I get back to my luscious day. Got the girls new shoes and water bottles at Target this morning. Livi got her hair cut last night–her first time at a salon. I could just eat her.
She is beyond thrilled to be in school. I am so excited for her. Other than a few twinges of sadness, I am just tickled at this new stage of her life. I am a mom of a school-age child. Eek. But it’s awesome. I’m happy to be 30 (almost 31). I’m happy to be done having babies. I’m happy, joyful, thankful that God has blessed me so greatly–and even grateful that He mixes in lots of little trials each day to make the blessings POP–to make them that much sweeter.
Tonight is Livi’s first soccer game, and Gabe (the soccer Dad) is out of town. Eek. I’m a little nervous about hauling everyone there, fighting the lovely rush hour traffic, getting all Livi’s gear on her, entertaining the other 2 during the game, and so on and so forth. It will turn out fine, I’m sure.
Back I go to my lush afternoon!
p.s. Got my back massaged again this morning. All done until it hurts again. Have stretches, a big ball, and I’m good to go. I was kidding about the chiropractor saying I would die by 35, but he did have this serious, doomsday attitude on the phone. I saw right through him–dollar figures flashing in his beady little eyes.
