1. With Miss Pink in school all day and Mr. Blue in preschool 8 hours a week, I have more time to do all the things I need and want to do--from keeping the house cleaner and more organized to reading blogs to writing. Then when I have the kids with me, I just enjoy them. I had wondered if I was fooling myself that when they got older, I'd have enough "me time" to make me less stressed--but I'm pleased to say that I was exactly right, and I am really enjoying this stage of our lives!
2. I'm reading a lot more. Like most people, the number of books I read went down when I discovered blogs. But now that I have to pick Miss P up every day, I have to wait 30 minutes or so in the car (I have to get there that early to get a decent place in line). I cut the engine to save gas, roll the windows down part way, let Mr. Blue listen to that Blue's Clues CD we all have memorized, and start reading whatever book I am keeping in the car. Bliss.
3. Justin finished the slab on the playroom addition. Now I can really see how big the room is going to be. Next up: framing.
4. I had my hair guy give me bangs. I like them a lot. Miss P said, "Mommy, your bangs make you look so different!" What do y'all think?
I hate these pictures--except for my hair. My husband had the camera right up in my face and I felt very self-conscious (although I'd asked him to take them for a profile pic). Also I plucked my eyebrows for about 15 minutes last night. Anyway, I still like the bangs. If I got square glasses I could look like Sarah Palin (kidding).
