Hitting the Links
My Saturday morning coffee is in-hand. My oldest had a friend sleep-over and they were up past midnight. They got up at 7. My oldest requires more sleep than that. My second son was up really late and woke up at 6:30. My smartest son (I mean, my youngest son) is still asleep. My daughter is also snoozin'. My husband is in the kitchen starting breakfast. I love that he likes to cook Saturday morning breakfast. I have missed relaxed Saturday mornings. Soccer ended last Saturday. I don't have a lot planned for today but I want to get a lot done around the house. I feel like being relaxed and working really hard. I wonder if motivation or relaxation will prevail.
If you have a little time to relax and surf around, here are some places I recommend visiting:
My Colossal Task Burden
"In one sense, task-juggling makes me feel great: busy, energised, fulfilled, as if I'm living three lives in the space of one. But I also know I'm scattered. I'm overloading my circuits. This overstimulated, underfocused world is driving us all batty"
Um, yes, I can relate.
Swagger Wagon "This Goes out to all of the Mini-Van families out there..."
This really cracks me up when I imagine myself and my husband singing the song. Ok, it cracks me up no matter what!
provide. ABIDE. "I am always praying “provide.” Gimme, gimme, gimme! God is always saying “ABIDE.” Abide in Me."
This was just the reminder I needed this week.
Parenting in the Rearview Mirror "Looking back, I realize that the words that next came out of his mouth marked the watershed moment in my life as a parent, and in our family's life. There was life before the words were uttered, and then there has been life since that time."
Read the post. Pray for Henry. (His family lives in my hometown and my husband is friends - or at least facebook friends- with a family member of his.) You can find updates on how Henry is doing on Katie's blog: Mamapundit He is in critical condition again, as of last night.
