I got back on Facebook a few weeks ago (so far, so good) and haven't been as diligent about updating here every since. It's easier to just blurt out a sentence here and there rather than think up and construct an entire paragraph. Lazy.
I think the kids are calmer than usual now
that I have no voice. They have to be very quiet in order to hear me and
they whisper their responses.
I might be on to something here.
I mean, they're pretty calm kids to begin with but now this place is like a library ... shhhhh.
I'm headed out on a very slow, very short walk to the end of the sidewalk this morning. I just need some fresh air! Speaking of fresh air, several of our friends are getting together for what we're calling "A Day in the Woods" today. I've opted not to go after all. This laryngitis is dragging me down, man. Nate is going to go for a bit this afternoon with Mazie while Bjorn, Freya and I stay behind and take a nap. I'm super sad to miss out on this awesome fall-time fun, but such is life. I have cuddly things to attend to here at home anyway.
- I'm a work in progress. I'm a mom to two, soon to be three, awesome kids that have taught me things I didn't know I needed to learn. I'm married to a kind and handsome man that I genuinely love to be with. I like to be around interesting people and enjoy learning from others. I'm quirky, energetic, have a glass that's usually half full (of wine) and am spontaneous when it fits into my plans. My life is much slower than it once was and even though I sometimes miss the old days, I never take these new days for granted. So, I've given up alot of things in order to give more of myself to my family ... and they better appreciate it. I mean, I expect nothing in return for my selfless love.
