Rainy Days

Lots of people get the blues on Rainy Days. And I must admit after several days in a row, I do too. But today I don't mind. My girls are sleeping, and I am avoiding the growing chore list. But that is ok. Rainy days make me lazy, I read magizines, talk to my husband, and just chill. I start day dreaming about places I want to go, or things I want to do to the house and get caught up in an undercurrent of "I wants" pulling me further and further from reality, until I find my self surfing the internet looking at new homes or wanting to knock out a wall at my house and put in a luxury master bath with a jetted tub. I continue on this wave until something like looking away from the computer to a HUGE stack of papers on the desk pulls me back to reality. Then I look from the papers over to the bulletin board that displays a penguin my daughter made that has her handprints for feet, and a picture made in Sunday School of a cross on a hill. Then... I pause... and think about what I am dreaming of... and realize... I have everything I have ever dreamed of. Yes, I really do like rainy days.

My Life Now

I am not a blogger, I think that is evident by the fact that I just posted a blog written in october 1 month after my second child was born, however, I really like the idea of journaling. Here is what is going on in my life. We have two children now and that has rocked our world, however, it has made it better than I could imagine. I am loving life. Prince Charming has gotten a pretty sizeable pay cut at work, so we have gotten creative, and found blessings in that. I have started making our own baby food, which is really easy. I will post some of the favorites. I have also started making our own laundry detergent which is easy too (that idea is thanks too a very frugal and inspirational family member :) ) I can post that link too. There are just little things I find myself doing, that have really changed our lifestyle, and I promise to try to start posting them. If they help others, that would be worth all this blogging thing.
