On a Tuesday Morning in Ferbuary

February 7, 2012

There are so many things I want to talk about.  How it feels like we’re moving slowly and that feels good.  How pork chops breaded with corn flake crumbs and baked are amazing.  How I love the Pepperidge Farms whole wheat cinnamon raisin bread toasted with some whipped cream cheese. How both of my kids decided to completely stop napping which means double the messes, none of the recovery time and killed my 2ish hours in the afternoon to be productive or relax(depending on the day) and also happens to be my most common time to sit and blog(hence the lack of post s lately.)  How moving my kids into the bigger of our two bedrooms is revolutionizing my world and theirs. How I’ve been focusing a lot on getting our new little bedrooms to come together now with a teensy budget and a few cheap DIY projects. How I turned on my digital camera and realized that I hadn’t even used it in two weeks. How shooting film lately and barely editing and not staring at a computer screen makes me so happy that I could sing and if you’ve even remotely considered the same, get this book to go along with your journey! How I watched an episode of Downton Abbey accidentally on Saturday night when I should have been going to bed and now I can’t get enough. How little girl braids make me so very happy. How it feels good when everything feels chaotic and I can’t keep up with cleaning my house to just bag up the excess and keep sending it to Salvation Army – I still can’t get over all of the stuff we have, even after we’ve gotten rid of tons and tons in the past months. How I got to visit preschool for the day last week and I cannot believe how much girl dynamics are already apparent, even at 4 years old and a bunch who are all immensely smart and bright and kind.

But I just can’t seem to get my footing , so hang on please, ok? We’ll figure out a new normal soon enough.  I always go back and forth when it feels like this with blogging. Whether to just skip posting and do massive posts once a week or to just pop in a bit with a picture or two here and there and a few bits of words. I don’t think there’s a right or wrong answer, but I do need to figure out and stumble around a bit with getting into a new routine all around.

p.s. Any favorite Etsy stores for wall art? I have a few pieces in mind and I have lots favorited(is that a word?), but while I’m hunting I’d love any suggestions and I promise to share in an upcoming post!

    Favorite-d… yeah, it’s a word.
    No naps, huh? That’s a rough spot.
    I have no advice, but I offer my sympathy.
    Seems like it’s all about changing our sails, right?
    I thought this post was good!

    This link here http://www.etsy.com/blog/en/2010/how-tuesday-stenciled-handwriting-art/ is an amazing idea.

    I’ve been saving it for a while trying to think of where I want to put a couple of the kids’ drawings. Even if you don’t like the exact way she’s doing it (b/c I thing somehow projected on the wall would be TONS easier) it’s a great idea!

Leave some love! (It always makes my day:)
