    A little indulgence

    Thanks to my cute friend Brittany for giving me this idea.

    I think it's important for us to focus on our good qualities and talents. Sometimes this can feel selfish or indulgent, but it helps us realize that we all have worth. Whether we have a full time job, a part time job, no job, stay at home, home school, are social butterflies, or shy wall flowers, we need to remember our selves. So here goes.

    5 things I've accomplished this week:

    1. Stayed current on my laundry.
    2. Gave my mom a haircut.
    3. Made a grocery list a mile long!
    4. Checked the pool twice a day.
    5. Cleaned my bathroom, the girls bathroom, and the nursery.

    5 things I'm good at:

    1. Taking care of my home. I like a clean, fairly organized place to live.
    2. Getting up in the middle of the night. This just doesn't bother me.
    3. Finding humor in just about everything.
    4. Taking care of my kids. They might look like orphans occasionally, but I let them dress themselves and brush their own hair. I think it's good to have them assert their independence.
    5. Relaxing. I love to lay by the pool and just chill.

    5 things that make me feel good:

    1. Seeing my kids learn new skills. Potty training, swimming, smiling, you name it.
    2. When I hear Sean's truck pull in the driveway after work.
    3. Accomplishing 1 task a day. Maybe it's laundry, dejunking a drawer, or dusting.
    4. The smell of Gretta in the morning. I don't know what it is, maybe the diaper full of pee, or the spit up down her neck. But seriously, that is the best smell in the world after a night of good sleep. And seeing that sweet smile just makes it better.
    5. 500 thread count sheets. Like butter.

    5 things I love:

    1. My home
    2. My family
    3. Pictures of other people
    4. Vacations
    5. My life

    5 things I like to do:

    1. Laugh at everything (and everyone!)
    2. Catch up with friends and family
    3. Blog
    4. Nap
    5. Eat good food

    You are so cute. Ya know I was thinking about this blog thing, and one of my guilties is that I NEVER write in a journal. This is my journal! You are awsome.

    We had a tempura party too. My favorite, AVACADOS!! They were so yummy. Sweet potato's were next. Glad you guys had a great time. Are we the only two that read blogs? Do you tell mom to look?

    I know, the blog totally makes me feel like I'm keeping a journal. Better than nothing, I guess.

    I have been telling mom to read the blog for 2 years now. I think she reads, but I don't think she comments.
