Daybook December 28, 2009

FOR TODAY... Monday December 28, 2009

Outside my window... dark. I'm at this late again.

I am thinking... why isn't this kid in bed. Grom can't sleep. He has "too much energy". He "must've ate too much dinner". I think it was the cake after dinner and the lazy morning with Grandma.

I am hearing... powertools on the TV. Grom is sitting here with me and we're watching one of those show where the build a hot rod or a motorcycle or ??? I'm just glad every-other word isn't BEEP.

I am thankful for... Anne Voskamp and her encouragement to count my blessings.

I am wearing... black pants, orange long sleeved tee, my Birk loafers.

I am remembering... that I have laundry in the washer. What's new?

I am going... to have an amazing 2010.

I am reading... "Have a New Kid by Friday" by Dr. Kevin Leman. I don't really want a new kid, I'd just want to stop screaming and feeling impotent. And I'd like my kid to listen and obey a little bit better.
I am hoping... that my friend Stacey and her family are home soon and that the surgeries for Baby Simon will be done.

On my mind... commitment, dedication, constancy, delusion.

From the learning rooms... Grom is out of school again this week. We are reading a bunch of books about cake. I see some cupcake decorating in our future. Maybe this weekend?

Noticing that... there is an newly empty flat surface in my studio. It was so covered with stuff that I didn't even need to dust after I cleared it.

Pondering these words... the verse of the day that I get in my email speaks to me so often.
"Let us hold fast the confession of our hope without wavering, for He who promised is faithful." - Hebrews 10:23 (NKJV)
From the kitchen... Our fridge and freezer are stuffed with food and leftovers. I need to clean out and get some leftovers used up.

Around the house... I'm ready to get those Christmas decorations put away and do some decluttering and organizing. It's time to get my studio back under control so I can do some crafting.

One of my favorite things... fresh brushed teeth and minty breath.

A picture to share... making orange & clove pomanders at the Kinder Christmas party.

  1. sweet photo! I did my daybook late in the evening, too... I think I am where you are at, frustrated with my kids being out of their routine, watching too many cartoons and eating too much junk. It all makes them out of sorts...and yet, I'm not ready to go to the effort to marshall then into shape!

    have a wonderful New Year!
