EDIT (9:38 pm): I cannot believe these are my babies! They’re soooo grown up! I want a poster of this for my wall. 🙂
In my head, I am listing all of the discouraging/disappointing things that have happened today. But on my xanga, I’m going to list all of the happy thoughts I can think of…
–Nina is filling her pants and working so hard at it. Grunt. Grunt. Sigh. Heavy breathing. Grunt. So endearing. Must be freeing.
–Nina’s room is all decorated…another step toward making our new house a home.
–Livi and Ava and I made Auntie Anne’s pretzels today (thanks, Wendy!) and they were a bit too plump but yummy.
–My family is coming to spend Labor Day at our house. I love getting together with all of them.
–I placed my order for the pics my friend Cami took of us in June. They were running a special offer–free duplicate prints. Anyone want an extra 11×14 picture of my babies? Just kidding!
–My back feels really good.
–When I can’t see the sense in something, I know God has a plan.
–Our new church has AWANA, and my girls are so excited.
–Nina has been “talking” off and on for awhile, but today she just started saying 7 or 8 different syllables over and over. Not amazing to anyone but her mom, I know, but I can’t believe my baby can talk!
–Gabe bought a Macintosh Classic computer off a guy at work for $10 today. It looks hysterical next to his iMac. It cost $1500 when it came out in 1990. What a bargain!
–Our internet came back on this evening–it was down all day today (and yesterday).
–Livi and Ava are watching The Sound of Music for the 20th time. (and it’s at my fave part–where she makes them play clothes out of drapes) I love that they love old movies. Can’t wait to add to their growing collection.
–Our Kroger carries Starbucks Mud Pies now. 🙂
–Poppyseed Pasta Salad and Corn on the Cob for supper. Yum. Okay, that was fun, but I’m ready for fall.
–Livi and Ava and I have been playing, “I point to a country on the globe, now you find it on the map.” I’m really bad at geography and have a strong desire to know where everything is. This is helping!
That should be enough good things to cheer me up. I still feel a bit like giving into the tears, but I truly am blessed.
