Lily is at big girl school,
Eden is at preschool,
and Maggie is asleep.
And so I am home, snuggled up with a blanket and The Civil Wars pandora playing softly.
[Family pics!]"I should write about stuff" I think.
Want to know something about me? I think, A LOT. I am constantly thinking thinking thinking. For the most part, deep thoughts, and ideas, and things I want to accomplish.
[please be mindful that there will be little flow, as these are just my thoughts rushing out of me]
So, what am I am thinking a lot about lately?
Yes. Did that make you cringe/get excited/want to tell me that's crazy?
I really think the girls and I could, and would be awesome at it if we did it. For all sorts of reasons. But I also get worried about far in the future, how would I teach them certain subjects, how will I help them not be weird? And I plan on taking it one year at a time, re-evaluating the girls' and my needs. I am currently researching curriculum and what would would be a good fit for us.
2)My body. How I treat it, what "works" for me, what science tells me, what my heart and spirit tells me. How I like to be curvy. If I try to be super toned and skinny, I am just a big loser in the wrong game. When I eat healthy, run daily, and let my body be curvy-big boobs, big hips, I feel like I am winning in the game. Sometimes I need to remind myself that.
3)I have been wanting to grow my hair out for about 4 months now. But today I woke up and said "screw that!" and texted Robin, my hair girl, and set an appointment, bring back that faux hawk! A red one!
4)Houses. Do you know what my dream house is? A little apartment in San Fran where its so small it requires a triple bunk, and us to not have a lot of stuff. WELL, we found a little old (100 years old!) house we want to by that would be like that, except, in Arkansas...not San Francisco. Can we all stop reading now, and say a prayer that our house (its under contract!) will continue to sell, and that we can by that little old house (we're under contract!). I hope it happens. I will be amazing/hard/crazy/fun/rewarding/frustrating.
I am thinking about a lot of other stuff too, but Mags just woke up and yelling at me from her crib.
Adios, love you, my dear blog.
