Wednesday Ramblings

Ahhh, I've been listening to my Christmas music this evening.  Some of my favorites are Donny Hathaway's This Christmas (probably my favorite Christmas song ever), Kirk Franklin's Now Behold the Lamb ("why you love me so, Lord I shall never know..."), and some songs off Mariah Carey's classic Christmas album. Oh, and Pandora threw in a little Justin Bieber, too.  Morgan and I were already fans (hey, don't judge), so I wasn't surprised to find a couple of things on his Christmas album that I like -- have you heard the one with Boyz II Men?

Hope everybody's having a good week.  Mine has flown by.  I can't believe tomorrow is already Thursday.  Of course time flies when you have a million and one things to do.

Remember when I told you I'd eliminated Facebook and Twitter as I felt like they were distracting me from more important things? Well, it's been over a month, and I've pretty much stayed away.  Occasionally I'll get on there to respond to/send a message.  Sometimes I'll get on when I'm standing in a long line at the store or am simply somewhere where I can't do anything else, but that's about it. I haven't been actively checking them every day like I used to.   The only thing I really miss about Facebook is the connection I have with my hometown.  I can find out about all kinds of things going on in my small hometown by just checking my news feed.  In some odd way, it's comforting to know what folks at home are up to.

We've been busy. Work's been super busy.  I'm trying to wrap up a grad school class.  I'm starting to think about what I'll be packing for my trip. And I literally have about six loads of laundry on my couch and bed.  I've been trying to do some fall cleaning in M's room for two weeks.  I've emptied all of her drawers and made piles on her floor of things to donate, save for Baby Sister (not preggo -- and not trying -- but just in case Baby #2 is a girl), or simply throw away.  Well, the piles are still there.  And since her room looks like a tornado, I've been letting her go to bed with us.  And one night when I put her in her own bed, she called me in there and told me she was afraid of the monster.  What monster?  She then points to the pile of clothes on her floor that probably did look like a monster in the dark.  And the Bad Mama Award goes to...

I'm gonna feel like a super mama in about a week, though, when M has her birthday party.  She is going to be thrilled to be at a party that's her very own.  As I mentioned before, this will be her first birthday party as I've always said my kids won't get a party until they understand what it's about.  I'm probably the only person I know that feels that way.  I've always known I was weird, so no need to tell me.

I think M's going to love her party.  It's at one of her favorite places and she'll be spending it with some of her favorite people (mostly family).  And eating cake.  Dang, I've got to order the cake!  

I'm no good at this party planning thing.  Which is probably why I've chosen to have it at a place where the kids can entertain themselves and I won't have to clean up afterwards.  Yes, sign me up.

Well, anyway, just wanted to pop in and say hi.

Pics? Oh, of course. These are just some phone pics I snapped one evening while we were out.  Does anyone else take pics of their kids ALL THE TIME for NO REASON AT ALL?

Okay, glad it's not just me. :-)


She told me, "Mommy, I wanna take a picture in front of the water..."



Super blurry but there's something so adorable about this little person standing in front of this huge tree.

Enjoy the rest of your week!
