Here's a weekly insight into my life and a chance for me to debrief my own brain and sort out my thoughts.

This is where you can find other daybookers.

Outside my window...we've had a respite from the already sweltering heat that March brought with it although I'm afraid that it won't last for long and we'll quickly be back up into the 80s temperature wise.

I am thinking...that I might die this weekend.  Well, figuratively.......not literally.  I have my Warrior Dash on Saturday morning with my sister-in-law and I'm terrified because my work-out regime didn't really work out too well for me.  Ugh.

I am thankful...that Craig is home to fight the bedtime battle Natalie is currently waging because I fought the naptime battle this afternoon and it's his turn in the hot seat.

In the kitchen...I've been making some good stuff lately!  Last week was Taco Pasta Salad and tomorrow night we're having homemade pizza!

I am wearing...make-up!  And my hair is straightened!  Hurray for a long morning nap by Natalie!

I am creating...a list of all the things that I would like to do this summer but that is already saved for an entirely separate post.

I am the doctor tomorrow afternoon.  I've had this weird (and painful) bump on my hand for about a month.  Last week at a doctor's appointment I found out it was a ganglion cyst (don't Google it - I did and it's GROSS) and tomorrow I'm headed to a orthopedic hand specialist to see about getting it either drained or removed.  Hopefully this doesn't wreck my plans for Saturday!

I am wondering...when (and if) Craig and I will get a full night's sleep again.  If it's not Natalie, it's the pups and if it's not the pups, it's a thunderstorm or my own personal nightmares.  Sigh.

I am reading...1Peter from the Bible.  Tuesday night is the last night of my 10 week Bible study on this particular book.  I'll admit that I'm relieved to have another night free to spend at home with Craig and Natalie but I've really enjoyed the new friendships I've made and all the interesting and enlightening conversations and discussions.

I am hoping...that my hand gets drained tomorrow and that it's not too painful.

I am looking forward to...a summer vacation with a toddler full of swim dates, trip to the zoo and aquarium and lots of reading.

I am learning...that perhaps I didn't just "suffer" after Natalie's birth so that I could learn something about myself, but instead so that I could be a solid sounding board and source of support for my friends experiencing a similar path.

Around the house...although things are relatively organized and picked up, I can tell that it's a "Martha" week and I'm ready for her to come on Friday and give the house a deep scrub.

A favorite quote for today...I am terrible with quotes.  Really, I am.  

One of my favorite things...having lunch and catching up with one of my college roommates Lauren and her baby boy Bennett.

A few plans for the rest of the week: Last Tuesday night Bible Study, volleyball (hopefully) on Wednesday and Craig has lots of basketball practices.  And of course......Warrior Dash on Saturday.

A picture I'm sharing: My roommate Lauren and I a VERY long time ago getting ready to go out on Fry Street in Denton.  Having lunch with her this afternoon reminded me of how much I enjoyed our year of living together.  She went through a bunch of crap with me and for that - we are forever bonded.  Plus she's super stylish and funny and gorgeous and we can cut through the BS with each other and get to the heart of the matter.  I love friends like that.

Hi Laura! You will do awesome at Warrior Dash...I promise it's not as scary as I thought it would be. If I can do, you certainly can and it's SOOOO fun!
