What I learned This Week

I'm joining the "What I Learned This Week" Carnival with Jo-Lynne at Musings of A Housewife again this week. Here's just a few things that I have learned.

-Pray, pray, pray. Sometimes that seems like the only thing you can do to try and make things better for someone that you love so much.
-The Muffin has regressed and decided to wake up numerous times during the night. I blame her crazy dreams, but I have no excuse for the past two mornings and her waking up raring to go at 5:30.
-I love Big Daddy so much more now than I did, even though I thought I couldn't love him any more.
-I need a break from everything. I'm taking myself off of the computer (except for email because I need something from the outside world) for the rest of the week. As much as I love reading blogs, I really need to focus attention on some things that are going on in our lives. I'm also going to use my free time during The Muffin's nap to work on a project for her and the Baby-to-be's bedrooms. And then there's those two nights that Muff will be with Nana & Pawpaw and I go for my monthly midwife visit. I may post a weight gain update, but I make no promises. Okay, I should be totally honest...I may read your blogs, but not comment. Maybe I just need to go cold turkey!!
-The Muffin loves snow, even if we're only out in it for five minutes. (I'll have pictures to auto-publish for a little "Wordless Wednesday" post tomorrow.)
-Sometimes God uses unlikely messengers. (I'll have something on auto-publish to explain this too, so stay tuned on Thursday AND Friday.)

Love your last point. God does send unlikely messengers. That could be its own blogpost.

Your right...sometimes prayer is all we can do! Blessings on your bloggy fast and I hope you get lots done!

Q. and La. said...

Oh I will miss you! -La.

I'd love to hear more about unlikely messengers...or maybe write something about it. You may have inspired me!

Enjoy your break! I hope you come back refreshed! :-)

I wish I had your strength to get away from the computer. I think I'd have to go cold turkey too. But looks like your time will be used wisely and productively. Enjoy the time off. We'll be here when you return.
