Outside: Very warm temps (it got to 85 degrees today -- now THIS is why I live in the South!) and beautiful, beautiful sunshine. While we were gone for only 4 days, the tree right outside our front windows went from completely bare to blooming with these perfect almost-neon green baby leaves, and the sun is making shadows on our hardwood floors through those baby leaves. Golly Moses, I just love the Spring.
Thinking: About my job in this economy. Even though I only need it for a few months longer to meet our financial goals before I become a full-time stay-at-home mommy, it would still be a great loss to me to lose it now. We are also becoming more and more Indiana-minded with each passing month (and as my belly gets bigger and bigger!). We just want to be HOME, where we can raise our children around their family members and where we can have support and help.
Thankful: For my Jesus. For the promise of the Resurrection and to know that He will wipe away every tear from our eyes and then there will be no more tears. Ever again.
From the kitchen: A fresh pot of coffee. We're lazing in the afternoon sunshine at the moment and not hungry enough for dinner yet. And I was too busy earlier today to make coffee and I'm getting a dreaded no-caffeine headache, so Marty made me some of his famous coffee. Of course, I won't sleep until 3 in the morning, but that's okay!
Creating: A "spring greetings" card. I have to send some kind of correspondence out to make up for the Christmas greetings that never happened!
Going: Nowhere this weekend! We need a break from the traveling. Let's just say that 8 hours in a car with a 9-month-old is no fun for anybody, even with a brand-new DVD player and videos of Dora, George, and Clifford!
Reading: It Sucked and Then I Cried: How I Had a Baby, a Breakdown, and a Much-Needed Margarita by Heather Armstrong. I'm going to do a book review on this as soon as I'm finished -- wait for it!
Hoping: That Marty hears back with positive news on a job possibility.
Hearing: Marty watching Paula Deen. We are big Paula fans in this household, and if we ever get to Savannah (hopefully before we move north), we're going to stand in line for a table at her restaurant.
A favorite thing: Short sleeves. Flip-flops. Pedicures. Four-cheese pasta and brown bread with butter at Cheesecake Factory. A chance to go to aforementioned restaurant with my hubby while my mom watched our son!
