Yesterday might have been the best stay-at-home mom day I've ever had. I don't really know how to explain it. I got more done around the house than I usually do, got more play time in than usual, painted my nails, sneaked in a family walk after David got off work, wrote a few guest posts, and ended the day feeling refreshed, accomplished and invigorated. In reality, none of it was that big, but overall, it was just an awesome day.
|I love this picture I took of my two loves on our walk this afternoon!|
I have a four day weekend, so hopefully I'll be having another one of those days today! School is in session today, but because of field trips and other special activities, I would have only had to teach one half hour class today, so I just rescheduled it to Wednesday this week. I love only working Monday, Wednesday, Friday because that means when I get a day off, I have a long, long break. Next week is a full week and then the following week, Spring Break! (And the week after that we have a few days off during Holy Week and Easter Monday.) I love all the extra time with Lulu this month!
Yesterday was my little brother's 21st birthday! He's my only sibling and we're very close. I've sometimes known people for months or even years and never known that they had a sibling. I do not get that at all. I talk about my brother all the time. He's a typical younger brother and gets on my nerves sometimes but I really love that kid and am proud of the man he's becoming!
Next Saturday is my birthday and I've decided to write a "30 before 30" list. I've been having so much fun planning goals for the next four years and thinking about where we might be while I'm working on the list. It's been really enlightening to spend time contemplating how I want to look back on my twenties. I still need to add a few more goals, so if you have some ideas (or have written/come across similar posts), I'd love to hear them.
I'm getting my hair cut this afternoon. It's been almost a year since my last haircut! I'm not going to do anything drastic, I've been growing my hair out for almost 4 years, so there is no way I'm cutting it yet, but I may get bangs. You can see what I end up with in my What I Wore Sunday post this week.
Why are so many shoes made with light-colored insides? I means seriously, they don't stay clean for very long and they instantly make the shoes dingy (and embarrassing to take off in public) once they get dirty. I get shoes that should always be worn with socks (like tennis shoes) but flats? Heels? Flip flops? Really? I have the hardest time finding a pair of flip flops that I like. Requirements: standard colors (usually black or brown), no fancy jewel or huge flower embellishments, dark-colored insides, and less than $30/$40. I wear my sandals until they fall apart because I can never find decent new ones, and unfortunately, mine did fall apart. If you can send me an idea of where to find a pair that fits those requirements, I'll be forever grateful!
How is your Lent going? Mine has been...almost nonexistent. I don't know what it is, but this year, I'm just not feeling spiritually challenged. More like spiritually lazy. And just tired. Very tired.
