Note: the following was all typed yesterday (Friday) and in the interest of actually getting this post up, I’m not going back to edit it. So, just pretend today is Friday while you read or make the changes for yourself mentally. 😉
This week has been both long and short. My heart has been heavy, my arms longing to hold that little girl. I know this is only the beginning. I am thankful for four pregnancies to condition me (ever-so-slightly) to the pains and heart tugs of a child you can’t yet hold. But with a pregnancy, at least you have some assurance of when you will hold that babe. This road….it has no definite end. And we’ve only just begun the long, long journey. sigh
Yesterday turned into a good day. Seventy-five degrees in mid-February makes everything better! We enjoyed our zoo and the girls all took their cameras and each took about 200 pictures, I think. And then we hit the Sonic play place for slides and Happy Hour.
Today it is hair cuts for chicks and cleaning house and hopefully this weekend we can de-winter the garage, porch, and patio a bit. (Only a bit, though, as more winter is forecasted for next week. 😦 ) Everything just feels so cluttered and dirty from the winter, even the floors inside the house showing signs of melted snow tracks. I may even charge the girls with cleaning out my truck. It hasn’t been vacuumed in at least a month, probably more. I don’t do well with dirty, messy, in my own spaces. I start to feel things closing in on me and my brain just can’t focus on anything until I clean.
Added on Saturday morning:
The house is now clean, girls have trimmed ends. Everything is feeling better. Last night Matt and I enjoyed date night at a local Thai restaurant. Money bags…..mmmmm! Today is one of Chandler’s last Upward games and then, hopefully, a productive/relaxing day at home.
I hope you all have a wonderful weekend and that you are able to enjoy both work and rest.
For His Glory ~
