He tends his flock like a shepherd: He gathers the lambs in his arms and carries them close to his heart;
he gently leads those that have young
. {Isaiah 40:11}

26 August 2011


the following may sound a bit like whining... i won't be offended if you ignore...

let's just say that i'm a little overwhelmed these days.
i don't feel like i can get a grip on anything anymore.
the house is a bit of a jumble.
half filled boxes all over.
laundry i can't motivate myself to fold because "hey, we're moving".
my meals have left a lot to be desired lately because i don't want to spend the money on groceries. i don't want to go to the grocery store. i don't want to cook.
we've had a lot of "breakfasts for dinner".
i feel like i have one foot in the door and one foot out.
i've never been a fan of limbo.
the kids are feeling it too.
CJ isn't happy unless he's in constant physical contact with Hubs or me. {his love language is physical touch to the extreme and i think starting school exacerbated that}
Mak isn't happy because, well, she's Mak ...see pictures below {i don't mean to mislead you, Mak is hilarious and SO fun but she's like her mama. when she's unhappy, everybody is}
and Bean isn't happy unless you're making direct eye contact with her.
we had, what i consider to be, my least favorite day of parenting this week.
no one listened well.
no one napped well.
i had a total of one hour of quiet all day. the rest was fussing, whining, yelling.
it was as if aliens took over our home and my attitude about it all certainly didn't help.
i've had to be purposeful about being thankful.
those days are tough.
we went to the new house for our final inspections and everything is great! as in... the inspector wishes he was buying it instead, great! {sneak peak. more to come. closing the 14th!}
i've been finding some great deals on items we've wanted on craigslist.com.
the kids, despite having a miserable start to the week, have been so kind to one another. lots of voluntary hugs and kisses.

Mak can only say a few words clearly but today she said "coffee". that makes me smile. maybe it shouldn't.
CJ turned 3 and started preschool this past week.
very dear friends of ours are getting married tomorrow!
i'm attending a bachelorette party tonight. i get a chance to unwind!
Hubs has been so kind and kept the kids on the nights that i've wanted to run errands.
i wasn't able to find fabric that i wanted for the girls' room... instead, i found even better ones!  already made!
they're just what i didn't know i was looking for. 
i borrowed a camera from my friend and fell in love with it...
a canon rebel
maybe if we weren't buying a house.
anyway... God is good.
but as for me... i am tired.
stay safe this weekend, fellow east coasters!
