That’s what this blog is…and a lot of other things too.
I’m reconciling myself to a month old pedicure, no nail polish, a dye job that’s a couple of months behind, toys that NEVER get properly put away, being satisfied with sending e-cards in lieu of “real” ones, laundry that is always in some state of flux, dishes that are never done, and who am I kidding, boobs that never get put all the way away either.
Meanwhile, I am getting out of the house, for which my sanity is eternally grateful. In addition to church today and last Sunday, I’ve made a MOMS group meeting and a home school picnic. I made some new friends and thoroughly relished my time with old chums too.
Kevin and I also took the wee boy on a dinner cruise. We met up with some friends and had a most enjoyable evening catching up.
Since we don’t go to a brick and mortar school, we traditionally take our “First Day of” picture on the first day of MOPS, but, alas I’m not in MOPS this year since MOMS group has to meet on the same day, and so the tradition changes. As do these children!

We’ve just been living life. Trying to love life, even if I am a bit bleary eyed and uber forgetful these days. We’ve enjoyed the autumnesque weather, even if it was a tad sunny this day! :-)!
We’ve played some games. We’ve been pirates.
We’ve read. We’ve learned a lot. We’ve changed a lot of diapers and onesies and sheets. We’ve had fevers. We’ve anointed oil and prayed and healed. We’ve watched a lot of Gilmore Girls (well, just me, being the we).
I’m trying to instill obedience and not allow arguing. I’m trying to be patient. I’m trying to drink more water. I’m trying to be ok when I have to nap. I’m trying to remember that being a mama is my favorite thing in the world!
