For January 26th 2009
Outside my window...I'm downstairs with the blinds closed, but the weather channel icon says it's cloudy so we'll go with that. Lots of snow--which I am glad about because January is too early for spring. A driveway with very little pavement showing even though we did shovel last night and today.
I am thinking about....how to decorate a little girls room. I looked through HGTV's Rate my Space and got some cute ideas. For some reason I just can't do baby pink. I think I could do a dark pink though. .....How many kids to have. This is such a hard decision. The whole time I was sick I was sure I was done. Now I'm not. I know I don't have to decide now (I probably shouldn't decide with pregnancy hormones working, but how does one know she is done?)...
My friend Ani's sweet little baby girl in the hospital.
I am thankful for...the gospel. I am so glad to know that my family is sealed for time and eternity and that God lives and loves me and my family. I'm grateful for Joseph Smith and what a powerful man he was. .... Tristan's job. Hearing about all of these job cuts just makes me panic, but I'm grateful for husband who works 14 hours a day during tax season so that I can stay home.
From the kitchen...We had pizza for dinner. Red sauce gives me a lot of trouble when I'm prego. Why do I bother? Why can't I ever sit down and plan a menu for the week. I'm so not a planner, I just fly by the seat of my pants.
I am wearing...My pink fuzzy PJ's that Tristan gave me for Christmas. Love them. I don't wear light pink except to bed. Weird eh?
I am going...maybe do another batch of family indexing, then either watch something or work on Tyce's birthday slideshow.
I am hoping...that I can handle tax season. It really all depends on my kids. If they are good players everything is great. If they are bored and expecting to be entertained 24-7, I go crazy. I'm not the one that gets up at 4:30 though so I really can't complain. ...That I feel this good for a lot longer and that the 3rd tri goes well.
I am hearing...the sweet sound of everyone in the house sleeping and the hum of the computer tower.
Around the house...Messy, but well-lived in as always. I try to clean up every morning.
One of my favorite things...This is a new favorite, but I got introduced to black bread. You can get it at Winco by their bakery. I've never heard of it, and I love it. I'm not a real toast person but this makes really good toast. You should try it. It's only a dollar more than a bread store loaf.
A few plans for the rest of the week...Help at Brandon's school, go to Scouts, have the missionaries over for dinner, make a snack for Creighton's preschool, shop for baby fabric, get more girl clothes from my sister-in-law, make a Saturday jar (different activities that we can go while Tristan works on Saturdays), clean the office, enjoy my family!
