Every Once In A While

I try to make lists of things about me once in a while. Things I like and things I don't like and random stuff that's in my head. I started writing out my lists sometime right after I got married. I don't think I have any of my earlier lists, but I read all of them a couple of years ago when we put our house on the market and were getting ready to move here. It's funny to see the things that were big and on my mind then that I had totally forgotten about.

So...about today.

Maggie is home from preschool because she woke up (several times) during the night with a fever. I'm hoping that it's the same short-lived fever that Ellie had on Sunday that was accompanied by no other symptoms. Unfortunately, Maggie often throws up when she has a fever.

I emailed my Awana director and called my co-teacher to let them know that I wouldn't be at class tonight. Big Daddy offered to stay at home with Maggie, but I told him to go ahead and go to the gym. He's in a fight this weekend and I'd like him to be prepared. BUT, I'm totally bummed that I'm missing class for the first time.

Pete Wilson posted this verse on facebook today and I thought it was special. Ephesians 2:10 "For we are God's workmanship, created in Christ Jesus to do good works, which God prepared in advance for us to do." And I adore Pete Wilson.

I took the girls to T@rget on Monday morning and then we met Big Daddy for lunch. Ellie screamed like you wouldn't believe because I put her in the shopping cart. Once I realized that she wasn't going to stop, I carried her...and pushed a heavy buggy.

I want a sewing machine. Sew bad. I confessed this to Big Daddy and of course, he told me to buy one. It makes me feel good that he wants me to have things that I want, but I don't feel like I need another distraction right now. I have crazy ideas of things that I would make, but time is limited and I am often in high demand. And I only average 6 hours of sleep most nights anyway. I would make things that we don't need, like curtains and blankets and things. Maybe I'll get one the next time it hits me! ( I know how to sew because I took one of those classes in high school. I was also a proud member of FHA... Future Homemakers of America. So, I really do have my dream job.)

Ellie is really good at communicating, but she doesn't talk much at all. Sometimes I find it annoying, but Maggie talks enough for all of us.

Maggie was up so much last night that I'm thinking that she may take a nap today. If so, I can't wait to do yoga in peace and quiet.

I hate it when someone likes a certain ____ and they feel like they have to put down all other _____s. I think it's one of my biggest pet peeves.

I took the girls to the grocery store on Monday afternoon. Ellie screamed like you wouldn't believe because I put her in the shopping cart. Once I realized that she wasn't going to stop, I carried her...and pushed a heavy buggy. (sound familiar?)

Big Daddy and I have a date planned for Sunday afternoon. I'm going shopping alone on Saturday morning (alone!!!!!) so that we don't have so much to do on our date. We'll be able to see a movie, have dinner and still pick up the girls from my sister's before bedtime without being rushed.

I like your list idea, especially being able to go back and read things that seemed really important to us at one time, but really don't matter anymore. I may have to start doing this:)

I love lists! Blogging is the perfect place to keep them. I think I'm going to make a pro/con list here in a minute to post early next week!
