It’s been a while since I caught you up on what’s been going on around here. I’ve been home for almost a week now from my big trip to Utah for the Young Living International Grand Convention.
We had several weddings to attend, each in different towns. “OK,” I told myself, “You just have to be prepared.” I got the clothes ready in advance and made sure the car was gassed up and cleaned out. Meals ready – check.
This is a whole new level of parenting. People say toddlers and teenagers are hard….we never had big struggles with those ages. But adults, that is a topic that needs some attention!
I remember in college I could stay up all night for a week then recover with a nap and some cold pizza. Now I require three days of sleep and chicken soup (without the noodles) to get over staying up until midnight.
But I realize I have not told you much about all of the writing that’s happening right under our very roof. #mykids
I’m really happy to have an office for myself. I took what was our little study room (it used to be Noah’s Lego room until we moved him upstairs) and made it into my own office
Some weekends are the lazy kind where you sit around and wonder what to do with yourselves. Like when James and I were first married and we would hear people say they were really busy and wonder what they meant.
Did you know that my older kids went through a film making phase? My son Jacob made 2 animated movies and entered them into a Christian film festival several years ago and was a semi finalist with one of his films.
After a long, cold weekend Monday is a beautiful thing. I like normalcy….if you can call 11 people in one house all day normal.
Last week I showed you my beautiful new shutters and how they have improved my lifestyle. I no longer have to wedge myself between my chair and the wall to open the curtains in my bedroom.
