For today, Monday, January 13, 2014
Outside my window... when the sun doesn't rise until around 8am, and a thick layer of clouds fills the sky, outside my window it is DARK.
Hearing... Kerry finishing breakfast, Wyatt leaving for the bus, Tate in the shower, and Gunnar downstairs reading (quietly!)
Pondering... when you have one behind on his schoolwork, how much of his activities to cut. Ugh.
Praying... still haven't heard anything about the job Kerry is applying for, but praying every day(!), also over the whole process of Tate being implanted again (so excited!), and - as always - for wisdom.
Thankful... for technology (Tate, especially!), for my family - present and of-origin, fun memories, and fun times to look forward to!
|2002 Vacation - Tate and Grandpa|
Wearing... blue jeans, navy t-shirt, blue/green sort of nordic looking sweater, and blue Danskos. I love my Danskos :D
Creating... a package to send to a friend - can't tell who!
Going... I can't believe it, but we're already starting rehearsal for the spring concert. Already! I'm always glad I went, but the pull to stay home with my family, a cup of hot tea, some pretty candles, and a good book is very tempting, especially when it gets dark around 4ish.
Reading... just started reading The Victory of Reason, and it's not a light read - going to take some time and concentration.
Learning... how ridiculous the post office has gotten (grrrr). You wouldn't believe the forms to fill out for sending something overseas - every single item by weight and value. Really???
Looking forward to... extended family vacation in Oregon this summer!
|2002 - Wyatt, or a bat, you choose.|
In the kitchen... no plans since I should be going to rehearsal tonight and there are plenty of leftovers for Kerry and the boys.
In the learning rooms... at the moment (afternoon) Tate has long been done for the day, Wyatt is working on his homeschool subjects (US gov't and Chemistry), and Gunnar is finishing up his grammar lesson (underlining) and has some reading to do.
Around the house... entropy. You know, from order to chaos. *sigh*
The Mother Load... let's not speak of that when I feel so un-energetic, alrighty?
Noticing that... my attention is wandering and I'm thinking about a nap... not sure I'm feeling 100%.
Something to remember for later... Tate, bless his heart, has no trouble deciding to get a second implant, but will ask me if he should iron his uniform today or tomorrow, or some other trivial thing.

Something fun to share... out for a walk with Gunnar today we ran into my sister's 1st or 2nd grade teacher and had a brief catch-up chat - fun :D
One of my favorite things... singing :D
A few plans for the rest of the week... homeschool, CAP, Gunnar babysits tomorrow, and the boys are going with the youth-group up to play in the snow on Saturday - really looking forward to that!
A peek into my world... Gunnar, one year old in 2002, discovered a liking for salt, which he was sucking off the rocks at the beach. What a cutie!
