Random Wednesday…

…when I type about pretty much whatever pops into my head.  🙂

  • I feel extremely industrious and virtuous when I have dinner prepared early in the day.  It makes the late afternoon so much less stressful.  I wonder why I don’t do this more often.  Oh yeah, I know why.  Because that would require me thinking ahead.  😛
  • I went shorts shopping this afternoon.  This is akin to bathing suit shopping, in my opinion.  I.hate.it.  Running for three years has NOT given me lean legs.  Noooo….my thighs just keep getting bigger.  They are toned and lovely.  But big.  Not thin.  Very frustrating.  The few shorts I have are either a) too tight, b) too long to be cute anymore, c) just plain old, or d) all of the above.  Today I braved the department store, swallowed my pride and bought the size I need instead of the size I want to be, and now I can finally wear something other than skirts this summer.
  • Recently, Matt was teasing me that I was pregnant.  I’m not.  And then a friend told me recently that they are expecting again.  And that tiny flash of baby fever set in.  Or maybe it was because I was in the sun too long.  I don’t know.  All I know is that I wish it was as easy as saying “we’re just having two and we’re done”.  Or, in our case, “four and we’re done”.  That would make my life each month a whoooole lot easier.  I hate fence sitting for any reason.  We’ve been on this fence quite a while.  No clear direction is coming, so I guess we’ll maintain our perch on said fence and see if the Lord decides to surprise us someday or give us some sort of direction.  Direction would be nice, Lord.  Although, if you have more children in mind, a surprise might be the way to go. I don’t know. *sigh*
  • The happy little sunflowers I bought last week are doing surprisingly poorly.  I thought they liked heat and sun and dryness!  I think I’ll be returning them this week.

Well, that’s all I can come up with.  Have a great Wednesday, y’all!

  1. “Or maybe it was because I was in the sun too long.” I laughed out loud! I hear you on the fence sitting though, our life has been in limbo for months. It sure does give your prayer life a good workout!

    Where’d you end up finding shorts? Clothes shopping is pretty frustrating in this town!

    • Glad you were amused! 🙂

      I found a couple pair at Dillard’s. Nothing special, but they’ll do. They are from the junior’s department, which explains the size issue. I’ve finally accepted the fact that I don’t have “junior’s” hips. Ha!

      I am definitely going to begin to implement the dinner ready before lunch plan. It does make a huge difference in how the rest of the day goes!

  2. One other thing I wanted to comment on. 😉 I read on the sonlight forums a long time ago, that the #1 one way to save money and your sanity is to have dinner prepped before lunch. It is a habit that has been a HUGE blessing to our family. I usually just put everything together while the kids eat lunch, and then when they clean up and do the lunch dishes all the dinner prep dishes get done too. Far less eating out b/c of it. And the afternoons are so much more relaxing.
