I'm going to jump in with a few thoughts today!
Wednesday night was our first dry night! Okay, let me back up: we are in our first month of serious potty training with my oldest, and he woke us up a few times to go potty, but diaper was dry in the morning. I am going to get him one of those spinning candy dispenser things he is always playing with at the check out. Or a rocket ship, per his request.
85 days away from my due date, and I am experiencing the worst baby fever ever. I do not like holding babies that are not mine, but I want to grab every little one I see. Then I flip out because it is less than three months away!
I am totally going to bring it up again because I seriously am so excited about being nominated for a Sheenazing Award. Bonnie over at A Knotted Life put some work into setting up the awards and being nominated was a total surprise: I went to vote for some of my favorites and saw my project was listed! I hope I was not one of the ones reported as heretical, because I love Catholicism. I was not a winner, but there were some really great blogs listed, so go check them out!
I am getting more comfortable with my prayer life again. It is really difficult in the day to day swing to lose track of time and ignore the praying and spiritual growth I need as a wife/mother/daughter/sister/friend/human. In the spirit of my renewed love of the rosary, I dug out the beautiful rosary bracelet my wonderful friend bought me for my birthday years ago. The crucifix and the marion medal fell off and I never put it back on and stopped wearing it. Time to get it repaired!
On the subject of repairs and gifts, my husband gave me my dream watch for our one year of dating anniversary. It is my favorite thing, but I wore it so much that the crystal casing is scratched beyond belief and it is hard to see the time. I discovered that Fossil will repair it! As soon as I get around to it I am sending it off for a new battery and casing and then I will have all sorts of things to wear on my wrists!
Ace of Base made the bestest, grooviest vid ever.
