Ok, so I have been what I call “blog stalking” for some time now. It took me two years of reading blogs everyday to finally get the courage to start my own. That being said, I’m not sure what I am doing and ask forgiveness if I am stepping on anyone’s toes. I have decided to join in on this Friday event our in the bloging world. The image is one I highjacked from another blog. I’m not even sure if that is allowed, so if it is not, I apologize and if you contact me about it, I will be happy to remove it. Ok, so now that all my apologies are out in the air—I am ready for my first seven quick takes!!
Our home is clean!
Ok, so maybe clean is a bit of an overstatement. The master bedroom has become a graveyard for the clutter I can no longer handle being in the communal living space and I still need to organize the back bedroom. But, the dishes are done and the floor is vacuumed! I’m sad to say, it has been a looooong timeJ
I’m on the market.
After two years, two babies, lots of praying, crying, and long talks, I am once again on the job market. This is a mixed one for me. The decision to go back to work is always a painful one. For me, the biggest challenge was having to die to myself about not being what I think defines a “good, Catholic, mom.” I couldn’t breastfeed, I don’t feel called to home schooling and now I am going to work! But, I still feel like a good mama—and I am really proud of that. Please keep us in your prayers. We came to this decision in prayer and we are now praying for the blessing and the opportunity to present itself.
I can’t believe Anna is now smiling and giggling. She is still screaming, a lot, but the fact that she can smile and be happy makes me feel like we are doing a good job and reminds us of what a blessing she is.
I have an amazing husband.
This week I have really been appreciative of the wonderful man God has placed in my life. He is an attentive and patient husband and a wonderful daddy for daughters.
I often shy away from things that seem “too hard.” For me, figuring out the bloging business was one of them. It is funny how I get more done when I am really busy. Now that I have 2 kids under 18 months, I find I’m being blessed with the confidence to try new things and have the patience to figure out the things I really want.
I want a town home so badly I can taste it. I’ve been thinking a lot about town homes. This is not a good thing, as I am now on The Total Money Makeover. Oh greed, why do you set up camp in my heart?
I’m excited about the potential community online. I never thought I would be, and a few years back I found the whole thing odd. But, here I am! I would reach out to all your beautiful women I have been following for two years, but I don’t know how to tell you I am a follower or ask you to become one of mine—so please say hi if you can! God bless and happy Friday one and all!
