Sometimes life gets so hectic. Ok, not sometimes, most times. Don't you agree? If it is not one thing then it is another. And that is the way life is. In desperation we try to keep things intact, to keep the appearance of simplicity. Think of duck on the water. I am sure you are familiar with the analogy. Having trouble picturing that?
That should help.
While graceful on top underneath the water this little guy is moving at a ferocious speed. One would never think so from how serene he looks.
I do have a point. Stay with me. All of our lives are moving at ferocious speeds. If it is not one thing, then it is another. I had this whole week off of work and was really looking forward to finishing all of my projects. Instead I tended to a very ill little girl the past 5 days. It was fine. Lots of cuddling. She is 90% recovered.
While I say that I did not get "anything" done, I know I did. I was a mother to my baby and that is irreplaceable. This blog however, is not.
We have gone back to our original blog. Its mkhansens.blogspot.com. Go on over. Tell us you love it. And tell us how you manage with the day-to-day instances of life. I am a new mom still, just a beginner and could use all the tips I can get.
ps-if you need my new email address and phone number, please let me know. Also, if your blog is private, I am not able to access it anymore but would love to.
I am sure the hubbs is happy for the 7 day marathon to be over. For me though, it is always a little sad when it ends. Good thing the anniversary is real close behind. This year it my turn to plan it though. More if that in a little while.
Day 1: Ice cream, new cut
Day 2: Pioneer Woman Cookbook
Day 3: Starbucks Strawberry Frappachino
Day 4: Dinner cooked by the hubbs, turning back time for me so we can watch Lost
me: I can't watch it. It's too late
him: Hello Moshi (our talking alarm clock). Set time. 8:00pm. There. Now its 8.
Day 5: Sealings, dinner at BJ's, visit with Berlin.
Day 6: Surprise in the YW Room at church, Family Birthday Party. This is the cake my sister made.
Day 7: Lunch with the Girls, SALT and MarbleSlab, 1 hour massage gift certificate.
I am Dependant on air and water and food. Without it, I will not survive. When I leave the house, I always have my car keys, lip gloss on incredible G1 Phone. I have to. Its like air.
So is posting. It is how I de-stress. I know, I am weird but chances are that if you are even reading this then you have a blog too.
Which brings me to this point. If you ever change your password, write it down. If you changes your password write it down twice. I did not. I failed to do either. And now I have a new email. I will probably have to get another blog address. I locked myself out of all of my blogs so I am writing under Mckay's.
Good thing it is my birthday week. And a Friday. Because I think this could whole thing could possibly make me go grey. And lose my marbles. And let's be honest, I only have a cracked brown and yellow marble left so I can't really afford to lose anymore.
On a more spiritual and insightful note, I felt prompted to just jot down the new password. I didn't. And now look. Its not a tragedy but my life could be that much easier if I would have heeded. So there is your lesson for the week. When you feel like you should do something, do it. I am recommitted now. I am better prepared. I am acutely aware of how not responding can bring me a whole mess that could have easily been avoided
Oh, last thing. Since the comments you make are kept private unless I publish it, please send me your email. Thank you. Gratsi. Mahalo.
Its day 6. Birthday week has begun folks. This is one of my favorite weeks of the year.
28 years old. Hmmm.
Want to know what I have been spoiled with so far? I bet you do. Who wouldn't. But it will have to wait.
I will tell you this though. I did get something I have been waiting for. I'll give you a hint. It has to do with the owner of a female orange tabby cat. Yup, female. Girl. Tabby. Cat. But its not the cat that is necessarily important. Its the author. And her cookbook. Ooh ooh ooh, I am one happy woman with the best hubby. Ever. That is not up for argument.
And I just had to post this one too. I was showering. It was innocently enough. And then I realized that the toddler had put half the roll of Charmin down the toilet. She is being potty trained and LOOOVVES that part of the process. Keep in mind, the one roll is actually 3 rolls. Its a mega roll. I also have been going ice cream free for the last two weeks. My birthday weeks starts on Tuesday. I intend to eat ice cream each day for teh rest of the month. Hmmmmm.....
“Our most important and powerful assignments are in the family. They are important because the family has the opportunity at the start of a child’s life to put feet firmly on the path home. Parents, brothers and sisters, grandparents, aunts and uncles are made more powerful guides and rescuers by the bonds of love that are the very nature of a family.”
"In terms of priorities for each major decision (such as education, occupation, place of residence, marriage, or childbearing), we should ask ourselves, what will be the eternal impact of this decision?"
