But I really, really WANT it!

Life is tough sometimes, isn't it?  I have really wanted a new comforter and bed set for a while now.  We have mixed and matched blankets and afghans on our bed at the moment because our comforter and matching pillowcases is so worn out and so hard to clean.  I've wanted for sometime, a nice new dresser, and maybe throw in some new kitchen supplies that have slowly gone missing with each new move.  Those of you who know us, are probably thinking, why don't you just go get those things...I mean you have enough!?So I would like to share what I'm learning  right now about life...and the necessity of first, being content with what we have right now, and secondly, of being ready at a moment's notice to give to those in need RIGHT now.Every time I think about a new matching bed set, I have to keep reminding myself that we have what we need, and the rest will come in due time.  Of course, the more I think this way,the more I see clearly how silly my desires are.  And the …

My Day Off

Today has been beyond amazing!Dan finished finals this week, and went to play for the day on Wednesday.  So yesterday, he informed me that today, I could have the day off...he would take care of all my responsibilities so I could go do WHATEVER I wanted! Let me tell you, I was pretty excited as you can imagine. First, I woke up to breakfast in bed.  Then I took a shower and got myself ready for the day. Then, I went bike riding with my babysitters' Mother...I've loved their family.  They have four teenage daughters who switch off babysitting for us and I think the world of their entire family.  We went about seven miles on a nice bike trail alongside an old abandoned railroad.  I had no idea we had gone so far because we were talking the entire time.  But, I'm pretty sore as I'm typing this, so I can only imagine how it's going to be tomorrow (I'm not in good shape).  We went back to their house, I practiced a song with her oldest daughter that we're going to …

My baby!

My baby, who has been determined to grow up since she was born, has started both walking and talking.  She recognizes and imitates words right and left like my other two did at fourteen months!  "Bow" is bear (teddy's are her favorite), "Muh!" means no, when she's fighting back after her brother and sister tell her she can't do something.  Sometimes it's "Dah!" "Boo(k)", "pathe" (toothepaste that she is always wanting to swipe and suck on), "Mom" and "Mama" both me.  She pretends to kiss by smacking her lips together like we do, with a closed mouth.  She pretends to cry when holding a dolly, then hugs and kisses the doll, saying "Ahhh".  She blows on food like we do. Where did this girl come from?  She is doing what my other two did at at least a year, and she is ten-and-a-half months old.  She really is in a hurry to grow up.   She climbs on anything, does patta-cake, and shares her food wit…
