Coffee chat

By Moriah on February 11th, 2012

Okay. I’m giving myself 10 minutes here with my coffee to just write. The kids are playing leappad and watching Tom & Jerry and the baby is bouncing away in the jump up. Arianna was too stiff and would just sit there, get bored, and cry. Ethan LOVES it. He twirls around and jumps really high and giggles. So funny.

It is snowing. We’ve had a really mild winter – lots of rain but not too cold overall. The kids were ecstatic about it snowing but a flake has yet to stick to the ground. I had to rain on that parade and keep them inside. Andy’s at a big KW conference this weekend so it’s just me and them – with sisters and friends around to keep us busy. I MADE Drew and Madeline get their homework done practically as they walked in the door on Friday because I knew we couldn’t have that hanging over our heads all weekend. So now it’s just time to play and enjoy. Happy.

I did want to get a few random projects done while Andy’s gone. Drew’s bedroom window blinds were all snapped and broken in several places and it just looked shabby. I’ve been meaning to take them down forever and install the extra black-out roller blinds we had sitting in the attic. I got that done last night – my neighbor came over (NOT the one who moved who left M at the park) for a chat and I swear she was going to have a heart attack watching me working standing up on the stool. ha

Anyway, I also cleared out the too-small boy clothes I was always having to fight against anytime I put away Ethan’s laundry, and folded in all the 12m stuff Dolly just sent me (woot!). Ethan’s well over 18 pounds so it was pathetic cramming him into 9mo sleepers that he couldn’t even stretch his feet out in. She also sent this monkey costume that is way too small for my big girls but they’ve been running around in it anyway and replying to my questions with “ooo-ooo-ooo!” I got some pics, I’ll upload them later.

I need to jump in the shower because Nicky and her boys are coming over for lunch and to play. Might be too cold to send them all outside but I’m sure we’ll manage somehow.

Hey, I need a good book. Any good ideas for me?

    Well I was hoping to bum off your comments list and find a new book to read, but since no one else has left one yet, I guess I will! Good book- well it’s not a get lost in the story book but it was a great read- Going Public by Dave and Kelli Pritchard. Totally changed my thinking on why or how to use the public school system and really convicted me to work more on being a part of our neighborhood and community for God’s glory.

    The Help is a great book.

    Coronation of Glory is one of my all time favourite books. Historical tale of the life of Lady Jane Grey the 9 Days Queen of England.

    I always love “Peace Like a River” by Lief Enger. If you like biography-lite you might try “The Sisters: the Saga of the Mitford Family” by Mary S. Lovell. These girls had connections! One of them was a friend of Hitler; another married Winston Churchill’s nephew; another was related to JFK through his sister’s marriage. What in the world? I have it if you want to borrow.

    I used to be such a book reader but am SO behind on the times. Right now I’m reading Captivating by John & Stasi Eldrege- which I think everyone has read but me!

    I loved that one too, Steph!

    I agree with Evangeline, thoroughly enjoyed Peace like a River. Have a copy if you want to borrow.

    I’ve been reading Ann Patchett books lately and really liking them. My favorite so far–“State of Wonder”. I just finished “Run”, also good, totally different story, and am going for “Bel Canto” next.
