I've got a few things on my mind...
Tomorrow (Tuesday) Ryan goes in for a knee surgery.
While I am sad for him that he even needs surgery,
I'm grateful that he will finally be free of major pain he has had for a year now.
I am thoroughly enjoying this winter so far.
It has been downright cold. We have had the same snow for over a month and I can't get over how beautiful it is.
There isn't much to do here in the winter and I am continually trying to figure out what to do to keep the girls occupied.
The evenings are especially long.
I have noticed especially lately, that Ashlynn has such a compassionate heart.
Ryan tore his finger open pretty bad at work a couple days ago and has several stitches and Ashlynn asks several times a day to pray for him.
And every time she sees him wince in pain she says,
"Oh daddy I'm sorry for your hurt finger/knee. Can I kiss it for you?"
I've decided I have terrible self control when it comes to food.
I joined a competition with several other women to loose weight.
Whoever looses the most wins a pool of money.
It's way harder than I thought.
I said no to a cupcake today though.
It was extremely painful...but gratifying.
Next year marks one year since we moved from Washington.
I absolutely cannot wrap my mind around that.
Talk about wild.
I think I have figured out a routine for laundry that is working.
It's only taken 4 1/2 years.
I just realized a couple days ago that I feel more at peace in my spirit that I have in so long.
I'm always thinking/worrying about what is next for us.
I'm not right now and it is incredibly freeing.
Peace is beautiful.
I love you all.
So very much.
