I’ve been so off-track recently! Managing a household and four kidlets is the hardest thing I’ve ever done. Some days I feel like I’m taking crazy pills and all I want is a break. A break from the never-ending list of diapers, meals, dishes, laundry, and sibling fights. A break from the NOISE especially. And a break from the lack-of-sleep.
Some days I feel like I have it all together, but those have gotten few and far between! I need more of those days. Being sick a few weeks back kind of threw us all off and it’s been sort of off ever since. Then the weather teased us with a few beautiful days and then threw us back into the depression of the winter blues. Cruel!
A friend recommended this book to me and I’m definitely going to check it out. We’ll see what comes of it!
However, I’m very pleased that cooking once a week (sometimes once every two weeks!) works great. We love it so far and plan to keep it up indefinitely.
I’m loving the mom’s encouragement group at our church. And we love our church in general. We definitely feel that we are in the right place! Everything that we feel very strongly about in regards to what we want in a church is there. Especially the importance of children being welcomed and included in corporate worship!
Speaking of church, Ephraim was baptized just a week ago yesterday!
The Friday before Ephraim’s baptism was one of those beautiful days that teased us and then vanished into thin air. See below:
In other news, the ICAN birth conference is coming up quickly and I am more and more excited every day. Steven and I are actually jokingly thinking of it as a faux second honeymoon of sorts. Even though I’ll be in conference sessions all day, the 3 older kids will stay with their Nana at night and Steven and Ephraim and I are greatly looking forward to a little more quiet time together in the evenings/mornings. We might even get to spend some time talking or eating a meal in peace or something crazy like that. YAY!
So to finish up this rather disjoined and somewhat random post, I have to go feed the baby! Symphony tonight puts us on a rigid schedule which I hate, but is a necessary evil. Later!
