currently in september

currently in september
dragging my feet (it's Monday)
hoping I can keep up with my activity challenge this week (so far so good)
planning family get togethers and birthday parties to celebrate the little people in my life (Juli turned 1. Lani is turning 11. And my cousin is pregnant with her first little one)
singing the birthday song on the hour on the half and when it breaks to Juli
making this cake for Lani's birthday party (can't wait to try it)
rocking Juli during her naps and unintentionally falling asleep with her
saying daily prayers with Addy while walking her into school (often prompted by her. "Mom, we need to pray!")
laughing at Evie's jokes- she is effortlessly funny
reading The Great Gatsby for A Beautiful Mess Book Club
listening to incessant laughter (my girls are always laughing- when they're not fighting ;)
eating (pictured) Greek yogurt a la Jasmine- 1/2 c vanilla Greek yogurt, crunchy cereal, frozen strawberries and blueberries (yum)
thinking about redesigning my summer project life book. I don't like how it's turning out so far :/
wearing . . . first a story- the other day Lani's school hosted a "Lunch with your Student" event. I asked Lani where I should meet her. I said, "Well, I'll be wearing-" She cut me off and said, "I know. Stripes." Ha! So, wearing? Stripes.
happy the playroom is clean (it was a nightmare! I got rid of 2 tall trash bags worth of stuff. I figure each trash bag is 3 of the smaller grocery bags, at least which were the size I had in mind for my 30 bags in 30 days goal, so that's 6 of 30 done. Ta da).
intending to redecorate our bedroom sooner than later
needing to take frequent breathers- plus scheduling "me time" is part of my goals for September
wanting that cup of coffee I didn't get a chance to make this morning because see first sentence (or fragment) dragging my feet (it's Monday)
knowing my day will pick up soon ;)

Have a good one!
