i am...

disappointed that sweet hubby doesn't start his second job today, as originally planned, but next week....that's one more week without the little extra to help get us back into the black...but also pleased that sweet hubby is going to be working more so that i can continue maternity leave for these next four weeks

in disbelief that i return to school in less than four weeks. (also: sad about it. but trying not to dwell on it....trying to focus on re-learning how to wake up at 5 a.m. and stay alert for the rest of the day without napping before 4 p.m., and teach a baby to go start a long sleep before 12 p.m....ha!)

listening for Peanut to wake up from her nap

planning to help mama pack up more of my grandma's things later this afternoon

able to button my pants, for the first time since december!

expecting a little bit of fabric fun to come in the mail in the next few days -- wet bag for the diaper pail, and maybe (hopefully!) a couple of new diapers for the Peanut, if there is enough fabric left over and i can figure out how to sew them without wanting to break the sewing machine

waiting for the diaper laundry to dry

reading and enjoying the "No. 1 Ladies Detective Agency" series (while feeding the Peanut)

SOOO excited to have talked the family into a beach weekend

worried about my mama -- she's been having chest pain and shortness of breath, and failed her EKG stress test on Wednesday...next Monday she'll have a heart cath done, and we'll know more after that....but until then, it's lots of prayer (and probably after, too)

i am...

feeling a little calmer about finances (at the moment, but probably not long term)

listening to the birds chirp outside

snuggled in my pjs -- flannel and a sweatshirt! Oh, my, fall has arrived!

getting SO close to cleaning off the bookcase in the living room

also close to pulling the boxes of my pre-pregnancy clothes down to find some warmer clothes that fit me now that the baby is born

excited to take Peanut to supper with my hallway team from last year

still avoiding thinking about going back to school -- even though more than half of my maternity leave is already over (boooooo)

thankful that sweet hubby is trying hard to work with a menu for the week and a small, small grocery budget

hearing dinosaur noises coming from the baby's room -- she must be stirring from her nap

blessed beyond measure to have my parents close by to keep the baby when sweet hubby and i want to take a trip to target (returns, then groceries...we returned more than we bought yesterday, which felt like a win!)

planning to return to yoga class for the first time post-birth tomorrow -- and hoping that my body doesn't simply fall apart from it after such a long break (and the birth of a baby!)

going to get that Peanut now!
