I am sometimes amazed that anyone reads my lists, but then I remember that I always enjoy reading other people's lists, and besides, this is what's going on in my head tonight. Bear with me!
I'm really enjoying working again. I like what I'm doing.
At the same time, it's hard to work at home. I do, and I have in the past, but being at the church today for some meetings made me realize that I really do like "going" to work.
I got to walk through the new worship center our church is building. Wow. Wow. Wow. (And I stood on the stage and told my imaginary audience to open their Bibles...a girl can dream!)
I love writing Bible studies. I'm so excited to teach at church starting March 24. But I'm having a hard time finding a regular time to write. Between my Bible study homework, my own study, teaching the girls, working with Toben, and maintaining the usual household stuff, I'm feeling like I need an extra hour everyday when the whole world stops--all except me.
Wouldn't that be cool?
I wish I had more time to talk on the phone with my friends. I miss them and feel like I've done a terrible job at keeping in touch lately.
I watched a couple of episodes of Glee the other day. And I'm hooked. I love the music. I want to sing like that. And move like that. Emma's been singing lines of "Don't Stop Believing" all evening. From the bathroom where she's taking a bath I keep hearing things like "Just a city boy..." "took a train going anywhere..." Love it.
I've decided I like the weather in Phoenix. A lot. The trees in my neighborhood are all blooming and chilly here is around 60 degrees. Not -6. I kinda like that. Spring in February is definitely a good thing.
I miss my sister. She and her family just moved into their new house in Denver. And I want to go see it and take her something fun for it.
My attitude this morning stank. No other word for it. Woke up feeling the kind of words my mother taught me not to say. Asked God to fix my attitude, went for run when I wanted to go back to bed, and by the time I got back, it was better. Not great, but better. And despite a rough start, it ended up being a good day.
Audrey made lasagna for dinner. So yummy! And so proud of my girl. She's getting so grown up. Sometimes it makes me really excited, other times I want to run screaming for the hills.
I'm starting to embarrass her. And I kind of do it on purpose because it makes me laugh to see her so horrified! She and her BFF act very shocked when her BFF's mom (my dear friend) and I sing and dance around the kitchen. But secretly, I think they know we're cool.
We're reading Old Yeller for school. Such a good story. I'm totally going to cry--I just know it.
The girls both want to homeschool again next year. I think I do too. We're talking about it as a family and praying about it.
There are days I wish I could do whatever I wanted--days when I really don't want to do geometry.
I am having coffee with a friend tomorrow--and we're going to have a conversation from start to finish. Without interruptions from our kids. Hooray!
I should probably go work on Bible study, but I'm tired and my brain feels mushy. Think I'll go brush my teeth and wash my face and take out my contacts and (::pause:: Emma just came to tell me she needed a hug, stopped to hug her) get into bed with a book.
If I could be anything for a day, I think I'd be a secret agent kinda like Angelina Jolie in Mr. and Mrs. Smith.
What about you? If you could wake up tomorrow to a different life, what would you want do for a day?
