Andy and I have been getting up at 6am almost every day for the last 3ish months. We have coffee, talk about our day and any financial decisions, dream about our lives and long-term goals, and then we do some sort of spiritual reading and pray. It was hard at first but the benefits have been so amazing that it’s become a top priority.

We just can’t have good conversation at the end of the day when we are exhausted and fighting to get the kids in bed. Much better to be hanging out when we’re fresh, with no distractions, and no kids vying for attention.

Anyway. These pics were taken last week when we were wrapping up and the Sleepyheads rolled on down. I always sit on that blanket so I let them have my chair and they snuggled up together. These two usually get a long really well and they are so cute and funny together. Arianna makes a hilarious 3-year-old “mother.”

(Also, this post is kind of an experiment. I posted these photos straight into WP without re-sizing them first. Could you let me know if they loaded slower than photos in older posts? Thanks!)



Don’t you jump in rainboots?

I haven’t blogged because I’ve been feeling lost.  Like, I suddenly forgot how to be the mom.  The 2,384 days of rain sucked the creativity out of me and I still haven’t recovered.  And I spend way too much on groceries because I just. can’t. think.

I’ve been reading Jen Hatmaker’s Out of the Spin Cycle: How to Lighten Your Mother Load which is AWESOME. But convicting too.  Like shouldn’t I be running a soup kitchen?  I feel like laying face-down on the floor crying a lot as it is, and I only have one two-year-old.  How do you get past that?

I think I need my friends more.  I am constantly surrounded by people (granted, usually 9 & under), yet still feel pretty lonely and I am sure I’m not the only one.  It’s hard having your soul sister live on the other side of the planet.

Anyway. Today I’m going to scoop about half of the playroom into the donation pile. I need to make space to breathe. It’s too overwhelming to pick up right now, a sure sign there’s too much stuff. So, cranking up the music, coffee, and Storybook Bible today.
