Good afternoon, friends. It's been a rough weekend here in the mountains.
Without going into too much detail, last week, I found I was pregnant with our third child, but the prognosis was not good. I was told to basically prepare for a miscarriage. I went home, hopeful, but bracing myself. I lost our baby the day after Thanksgiving and am still healing and grieving. Putting up the "Happy Homemaker" post today gives me something to do as I sit and rest and recover and grieve.
Looking outside the window: It's gray and wet outside, and is supposed to remain that way until Wednesday night.
Right now, I am: Typing up this post, and debating getting something to eat.
Thinking and pondering: Oh, all sorts of things. I'm debating putting up the Christmas tree this weekend, and being more than a little sad. I'm also intensely grateful for everyone who reached out to me this weekend.
On my bedside table: Water bottle, Kindle, pen and paper, glitter, cardstock, glue, craft supplies.
On my TV this week: Things to make me laugh, because it's either laugh or cry...and I don't think I have any tears left.
Listening to: Don't laugh, but Uptown Funk. I need something happy-ish right now.
On the menu for this week:
Um, grocery shopping. Our week kind of stood still last week. so...
Monday: Breakfast for dinner
Tuesday: Asian Ribs in the Crockpot
Wednesday-Sunday: To be announced.
On my to-do list: Light cleaning and rest.
Happening this week: Hopefully, a quiet week. At some point, I have to buy groceries, and we have a Family Fun day planned on Friday.
What I am creating: More pieces for Winter Remembrance. Also, a birthday-something for my Daddy, who will turn the big 6-5 this Saturday!!!
My Simple Pleasure: Laying in bed, reading a book, something I did a lot of this weekend.
Looking around the house: Ella is having a snack, and sorting through clothes for her cousins, and The Sphinx is asleep next to her.
From the camera:
Prayer List: Mom, Dad, kid brother, everyone who's having a hard time this holiday season.
Bible Verse, Devotional:
Have a blessed week, my friends.
