Neglected Daybook

Outside my window … darkness. Which means the Christmas lights have been taken down and Christmas is officially over.


I am thinking
… I need to stop feeling guilty over every little thing.


I am thankful for
… our beautifully-finished office. To celebrate, I completed Simon's first year scrapbook today.


I am reading
An Echo in the Bone by Diana Gabaldon. Finally!


I am hoping
… I can keep this blog up. I think it's days are numbered.


On my mind
… I cannot believe Violet is turning one next week. :(


We’re learning
… that those meddling kids do always solve the mystery.


Noticing that
… all the kids are growing like weeds. Except for Simon. Hmmmm... is he just going to be short or is there something else going on?


Pondering these words
… "Ok - too many different words coming at me from too many different sentences." --Michael Scott


From the kitchen
… getting out of my recovering-from-surgery-and-then-baking-for-the-holidays fog. I have actually been making dinner - barbecue pulled pork, chicken pad thai, enchiladas. And the kids hate it all.


Around the house
… birthdays, birthdays, birthdays.


One of my favorite things
… coming home after a long day to dinner already cooking, the table set, and wine poured. (Okay, no wine poured, but it sounded nice.)


A picture I am sharing
The sweetness of stolen candy canes.

I don't care if it took you a whole month between posts - I do NOT want this blog's days to be numbered!!!

Keep in mind that you have four kiddos and took a nice little blog break during Christmas, New Year's, and Shawn's birthday. We'll give you a pass this time.
