"Monday Monday" Daybook

Outside my window … snow, snow, snow. Winter has finally come to stay in New Hampshire.

I am thinking … that Thomas the Train is the dumbest show. Why does Clare like it so much?

I am thankful for … car insurance and that the driver who hit my car last week actually had some. I am sorry I doubted him.

I am readingCity of Bones by Cassandra Clare. (And still finishing the other two books - now I have a downstairs book, upstairs book, and rocking chair/nursing book - such a geek.)

I am hoping … (selfishly) that Shawn chooses to drive three hours home from Connecticut tomorrow to drive three hours back the next day.

On my mind … whether or not it is vanity that I want to have my Lasix surgery touched up. Ten years post-surgery, I really need to wear my glasses full-time again, but I really don't want to. I sound like a little kid. I don't wanna! I don't wanna!

We’re learning … lines for the school play. Jamie has a small speaking role in The Emperor's New Clothes. Maybe one day Shawn and I will be able to get back into theatre.

Noticing that … I really need a Kitchen Aid Mixer.

Pondering these words … "The winding roads shall be made straight, and the rough ways made smooth." --Luke 3: 5

From the kitchen … Christmas cookies. We've already baked galettes, sugar cookies, and Russian teacake surprise cookies. Peanut butter cookies are next. All cookies from my childhood, so I am awash in memories of Christmases at my parents' in Rhode Island and Granny's in West Virginia.

Around the house … Violet is cruising everywhere now. Nothing is safe, and she has realized that if she stands on her tiptoes, she can reach even more stuff!

One of my favorite things … my laptop. It's great to be portable!

A picture I am sharing

Simon and Clare challenge each other, cheer for each other, and love and hate like the best of siblings!

What a cute picture!!! Definately not vanity on the lasik surgery. Glasses and contacts are so so annoying. Every year Mike and I wish we had the money to get the surgery done!

Love your updates. I will have to check out those books next..I am running out of books to read! See I'm a geek too. Love the picture.

I love this new part of your blog. I wish I had the motivation to do it...but I think trying to come up with everything would be too difficult for whatever remaining brain cells I have left!

Again...thanks for sharing! I am rooting for the lasik touch-up! Also for the Kitchen Aid mixer! The photo is so sweet! May they always be best of friends!! hugs!

Please share galettes (and, oh yeah, other cookies, too!) next week. I need my childhood back in that little way.

You have some cuties!

It's funny you should mention "The Shack", by the way. I just started re-reading it about a week ago. It really is a great book, and very healing.

Thanks for continuing to think of and check in on me!

Here is an additional resource about the genetics of Williams Syndrome: I hope it helps. Thanks, AccessDNA
