Happy Homemaker Monday 06/05/2017

I took my Josie in to the doctor today, because I had a few concerns...the doctor is not concerned about them, as they are common in small babies. I'm due for another weight re-check on Wednesday...however, the doctor is concerned about my "very obvious" lack of rest and the fact that I'm "probably overdoing it." Whoops. Is it that obvious?

I've been relegated to doing the two things I hate the most...sitting still and eating as much as I can. Aurgh. I realize to most people it would be a dream come true, but this is not a lifestyle I'm used to, and I'm not most people.

So, to stay sane while I sit still and eat (sigh), I'm going to *try* and get back into the blogging thing, while taking insane amounts of pictures of my girls. (GIRLS!!!!)

Let's get on with it, shall we?

The Weather: It's raining here, but supposed to clear up by tomorrow. It's typical late-Spring here in NC, where it's warm during the day and just a touch cool at night. Perfection.

On my reading pile: Oh, gosh. I guess now I'll have time to read, huh? I'm reading Abandoned Prayers by Gregg Olsen. Lots of dark scary stuff going on in an Amish community...and this took place in the 80's...and it's a true story. Yikes.

Movies or TV shows I watched this weekend: Nothing. I watched my newborn sleep.

On my TV: I've made a date with myself to sit still through an entire movie. I'll let you guys know which one I ended up picking.

On the menu for this week: Probably a bevy of quick-cooking foods/whatever my 11 year old can whip up/Gabe's on vacation so he can cook...

On my to-do list: Rest, rest, rest. Drink lots of water. Rest some more.

What I am sewing, knitting, crocheting, or creating: Nothing...although I suppose I could do that while I'm resting, right? Hmmm...

Looking around the house:  You can see that we've been blessed. Gift bags everywhere. I need to start writing out thank-you cards. Glad Gabe is on vacation this week. He can help me catch up on laundry...

From the camera:

my girls are 11 years and 11 days apart.

One of my simple pleasures:   Sleep. Kind of hard to come by, but treasured when I get it.

Inspirational quote, Bible verse, etc: 

Josie's life verse: "Weeping may endure for a night, but joy comes in the morning."
