For Today

I'm a few days late on this but I suppose better late than never.

Outside my window: It's cold and dark, snow - snow and more snow. School has been out for two days already this week and I've already received a text that it's closed tomorrow too. Looks like we'll be going to school in July still. Just kidding, but it sure seems like we're headed in that direction!

I Am Thinking: About my walk with Christ and how it's not quite where it used to be and trying to figure out what I need to do to get it back where it needs to be.

I Am Thankful For: My new job. Now that I've been there almost two months though, does that still mean it's new?

From The Kitchen: Not much. Thankfully I have a sweet husband who takes care of that.

I Am Wearing: black sweats, gray t-shirt. Uber boring, that's me.

On the 'Go Organize' Front: Sigh. Nothing. Nada. Ryan and the girls are still bunking in one room. It's a mess.

I Am Going: To bed soon, my new job is kicking my beeee-hind. But in the best possible way, I really do like it there.

I Am Reading: Reader's Digest. Aren't I just a barrel of fun?

I Am Hoping: It warms up soon! PLEASE!

I Am Praying For: Ryan still, we haven't had time to take him in for the test his doctor is asking for. The snow has messed with my schedule just a tad but hopefully I can get him in next week. Brian is going to be seeing an ENT soon for his reoccuring sinus infections. What's going on around here w/ my guys?!

I Am Hearing: Something is on TV but not quite sure what it is. Really do not think Brian is even paying attention to it. Other than that it's fairly quiet, the girls are bathed and Ryan is showering now.

Around The House: Taxes to finish up, just waiting on one more thing to come in the mail.

One Of My Favorite Things: Reading to the girls. Brian & Ryan went 'to town' tonight for haircuts and the girls and I read for over an hour. The dynamics are just so different when the girls and I are here alone.

A Few Plans For The Rest of The Week: This is a relatively quiet week for us since we're past basketball but baseball hasn't started. Gymnastics for the girls on Thursday. Brian has a deacon retreat thing going on this weekend but other than that, not much on the calendar. So NOT like us.

From the Emma files: Brian & I were talking about a tutor for Rebecca and Emma asks "what's a tutor? Someone who toots?". She cracks me up!

From the Rebecca files: Brian has been trying to teach her knock knock jokes, she has the cutest little laugh ever. So he does the one:
(Brian) Knock Knock
(Bex) Who's There
(Brian) Boo
(Bex) Boo Who?
(Brian) Sorry I made you cry

And little Bex says "that's okay papa"!

From the Ryan files: He's 12. Need I say more? Will I survive it is the question. I used to get so aggravated with my stepsons for some of the things they would do, or more importantly - not do, and always thought it was because their early life was different than how I would raise a child. Or that I wasn't their mother. I had a whole list of reasons why I thought they did the things they did. Now I realize it had nothing to do with all that and everything to do with being a boy, and a pre-teen, teen. Surely it'll be different when the girls hit this age, right?

Have a great week everyone!
