Another day

Today....I am doing some work from home. With my in-laws gone on vacation, Todd and I did some rearranging to our work schedules. I could kind of get used to this. Though Tommy's pretend phone keeps ringing and I have to answer it and I also have Elmo's voice in the background talking about "jumping" today.

Today....I am making a bigger effort to stay on track. Enough said.

Today....I hope to get all of my laundry done and spray paint the rest of the things that need spray painting for my big living room makeover.

Today....I am proud of my husband.

Today....I am grateful for dear friends who love me, check in on me, and ask how things really are. And I am reminded where I want and need to do that same thing for others.

Today....I am still putting off potty training. And this time my excuse is wanting to use up some more of our diapers because I've heard once you start to not go back to the diaper thing. I keep making excuses and I'm running out of them, considering Tommy is practically begging us to sit on the potty. *sigh*

Today....I am wishing I were at the beach. Because my cousins are there and I love going to the beach and never go.

Today....I am excited about a book club I was invited to go to.

Today....I am contemplating things like gratitude and cutting/dying my hair. Clearly, I'm all over the place.

Today....I'm geeking out over one of my new favorite bloggers sending me e-mails and commenting on my own blog. Kristie is pretty awesome and you should check her out if you haven't yet.

Today....I want to take some time to read more of the book 1,000 Gifts by Ann Voskamp. It's really good by the way.

Today....I am hot and ready for summer to be OVER. This 100+ weather and no rain is just a little old. Is it fall yet? another day to live, to breathe, to laugh, to cry, to get things done, to take some time out, to rest, and to play. Today is another day.


  1. I just wrote a post that was inspired by One Thousand Gifts!!

  2. Hi my dear, just read your blog. The best way to live is in THE day. I think Tommy will be easy to train. I love you and I hope you have a wonderful day . Just remember this crazy gramma loves very much.
