Through my blog travels, I’ve found Home Sanctuary. I’m not fully immersed in the wonderful small things she does (although I’m probably going to jump in gung ho next month (she offers some great prizes!). Every Friday. she also has a “company girls coffee chat”.
I’ve been meaning to write about my week anyway, but this is a wonderful way to do so. And what better way than to combine it with Conversion Diary’s 7 quick takes?
I’ve been in one of my “Funks” this week. The last few weeks (from sometime after Christmas until a week ago) I’ve been pretty gung ho, pretty on the ball, pretty good overall. Then this week started and all I’ve wanted to do is eat and read. So that’s mostly what I’ve been doing. I think it’s good to have a balance and that’s what I’m taking out of this: I need more balance. I can’t just relax all the time, nor can I expect myself to be on the ball all the time.
Tomorrow Grace will be 9 months old! We’ll be going to get her pictures taken at Olan Mills today. I’m so excited to see my big girl growing up.
Last Friday, Grace’s first tooth popped up! I no longer let her bite my fingers. It is one sharp little bugger.
Chris is getting more fully immersed in his school work this week and it makes me think. Frankly, I will be SO GLAD when he’s done with school. I”m very proud of the work he puts into it but it is very time consuming and I’d like my husband back. Now, please.
This past Tuesday, I started my Wilton Course 1 decorating class! I’m planning on writing up a post about the class, but it will wait until tomorrow when I bake a cake. My Grandpa’s birthday is next week and I”m going to be making the cake for out get together on Sunday. I’ll show off the skills I learned and give you an update on that class!
It pains me to tell you this. Grace can drink out of a sippy cup and can feed herself snacks out of her “no-spill” snack cup. The move to independence has begun in earnest and it’s one of the saddest Mom-feelings yet.
I’m pretty sure I’ve decided on my “Word of the Year 2010”. It’s one of my core focuses lately and I’ve labled it as an uber-important “value” of mine. What is it?
I hope everyone has had a fantastic week full of joy, self-discovery and peace!
