My MONDAY Day Book

Stolen once again from my friend Molly - someone who put up with me as a teen and is proud of the adult I've grown up to be.

Outside my window … there is the remnant water puddles from last night's much needed thunderstorm.

I am thinking … that Natalie had a pretty good night last night - asleep by 10:00, up at 1:30 and 5:30 and sleeping well in between.

I am thankful for … the community that I live in - one of my students' families brought us a delicious dinner on Friday night and then we ran into three of my favorite 8th grade girls as they were fishing at our neighborhood park while we took a walk.  Kind of felt like I was living in a Norman Rockwell painting...and that means life is good.

I am hoping … that  my sister-in-law Meredith and I are able to successfully figure out the breast pump this morning so that I can have some of the "feeding" burden taken off my shoulders.

On my mind … a dream about his father that Craig had the other night - there are some things I can't fix in his life and so I pray for more emotional resolution for him.

Noticing that …I have a stinky dog...and after taking hot bluebonnet pictures yesterday afternoon, a stinky baby.

A few plans for the week … Meredith and Ford visit today, Natalie's ONE MONTH (holy cow) check up on Thursday and maybe a play date with my friend Jill and her baby Joley.

From the kitchen … I am going to brave the grocery store sometime this week with my munchkin in her sling so that I can get some food for dinners.

Around the house … is put together and organized - my favorite room in the house is Natalie's room because it's so magical, yet relaxing in there.

One of my favorite things … the fact that it's 9:00 in the morning on a Monday and I've got a sleeping baby in her bassinet, a sleeping puppy dog at my feet and I'm getting to blog and drink a delicious cup of coffee.

A picture I am sharing … well, I would love to show a picture, but blogger is saying "server rejected" to any photo I try to upload from my computer.  If anyone knows what I'm doing wrong and how to fix it, please let me know!!
