Outside my window…
February March grey. Yuck.
I am thinking…about the conversation I just had with the La Leche League representative and how I’m going to implement all the suggestions she made to (hopefully!) alleviate the nursing pain I’ve been experiencing now for about a week and a half. A trip to the OB yielded a prescription for thrush, but neither I nor the baby has any of the usual symptoms. The LLL rep confirmed that thrush doesn’t always have any symptoms. I’m gearing up to be super vigilant about cross-contamination AND my sugar intake. (Guess which one will be harder?)
I am thankful…that it’s March, even if it’s still cold here.
In the kitchen…navy beans on the stove, which will be later be turned into chicken tortilla soup.
I am wearing…a dull lime green 3/4 length boat-neck tee, brown jacket, jeans, white Nikes.
I am creating…lots of complicated plans in my head.
I am going…to Target and maybe the Y later, but first to my dear mother-in-law’s for supper.
I am wondering…if I have the energy to reconvene school this afternoon. I still need to review some of Lulu’s work with her and do some history reading (as well as our usual read-alouds).
I am reading…Gone with the Wind.
I am hoping…that our nursing issues are resolved quickly.
I am looking forward to…attending a showing of “King Midas” at our local children’s theater later this week.
I am learning. . . to give myself a break by choosing to not obsess about certain things (namely, next year’s school plans).
Around the house…someone’s coming to clean while we go to CBS tomorrow. Yippee!
I am pondering…if my girls are mature enough to visit a civil rights museum. Steady Eddie will be traveling to Selma later this month, and I’ve thought about taking the girls and going with him. It’s such a dark period in our state’s and nation’s history–when is the best time to introduce it?
A favorite quote for today…this from a devotional reading called Holy Emotions I’ve been doing from YouVersion (whatever this is–a Bible app? a Bible website?):
Many Christians are more connected to the pain of their past than they are to the reality of God’s presence on a daily basis. It really does matter to you emotionally whether or not you read your Bible every day. It really does matter to you emotionally whether or not you worship in spite of your disappointment. It really does matter to you emotionally if you pray for those who have been unkind to you. It really does matter.
One of my favorite things…that the DLM still says “yes, suh” (“yes, sir”) to me when I give him directions. It will indeed be a sad day when he figures out I’m not a “suh.”
A few plans for the rest of the week. . .lessons with the girls, reading with the boy (and girls), CBS, piano lessons, church, play and hopefully lunch with friends. The usual.
A peek into my day…
Guess who’s 11 months old as of Sunday? How is that possible?
