Currently July

So I actually did my "currently" yesterday, but when you have a 3 year old and a 5 week old, some things get interrupted. One day I'll be able to write a post in a single sitting again...


Listening: Considering our new normal, this was "quiet time". Keagan was supposed to be napping and usually sleeps like a champ, but for some reason yesterday was the exception. He only took about a half hour nap, so we had a grumpy boy by evening. Not fun...

Loving: It had been insanely hot to the point where you didn't want to be outside, so I'm enjoying these days in the 80s. Much more manageable!

Thinking: Between writing thank you cards, dealing with insurance, packing, and taking care of TWO kids, one who needs to be held constantly, there is very little down time. I need one of those wtaps like yesterday. Or maybe a third arm?

Wanting:  It IS summer, after all, and I'm ready to put my toes in the sand and relax. We may try to steal away next week for a day trip in the midst of packing insanity.

Needing: There is so. much. stuff. And we've barely begun. I hate clutter, so this is going to drive me crazy. One week. I can do it!

All star: After reading this, I don't think it sounds true, but I am usually very "go-with-the-flow" and known for my laid-back attitude. It just takes a lot to really get me worked up (although beware when it happens! I have a redhead temper). I'm a problem solver and have always been good at finding a happy medium.

And just because they are the cutest things in the world, I leave you with a picture from Caffrey's newborn photo shoot. Aren't they adorable?

  1. Sweet photo! Despite your hectic routine, you sound pretty cheerful and upbeat to me! Your go-with-the-flow reputation is in tact! I'm really feeling the need for a beach visit, too. We will bring lunch and snacks and make a day of it. Have a wonderful week.

  2. They are adorable! My kiddos are 20, 18, 15 1/2(with temps to drive), and 13. Time flies. Life is busy and all of a sudden they are big! I love the beach! Here in Wisconsin we enjoy the lake...it works until it gets cold...then I wish we had the beach!
