happy happy killjoy.

Once a year, I hate my husband's job. Once a year, I hate myself for hating my husband's job. I also have an epic woe is me day (okay, so that happens more than once a year). He's off to the games with his co-workers, cheering the Minnesota Twins on in PERFECT baseball weather. I wouldn't feel as left out if it was 105 degrees with a mix of rain and extreme humidity. Proof that I'm not 100% nice.

There are days when I wish my job had fun perks...heck, there are days when I wish there were actual co-workers, co-workers that I could go and hang out with outside of the job. Oh right, that's what date night is for. You know what I mean. Sometimes being a SAH mom isn't so glamorous. Most of the time it's not. Take today for example. 4am wakeup call from the youngest. Whining from both kids all.day.long. Problems with naps. And poop. Wow. That's a four letter word that I'm so very tired of hearing, seeing and cleaning up. Can you tell I've seen a lot of it today? Yeah. Not so glamorous.  Don't worry, I hear my own whining and I'm sick of it as well. I wish I could come up with something that would cheer me up. Maybe I'll make spaghetti for dinner and eat without counting calories. Then I can be grumpy tomorrow too...but at least I'll like my husband's job.

I'll leave you with a pic he texted me.
"Yep, I'm here"
To which I replied: Too bad they're losing. Happy happy killjoy.

    1. I am so blessed to have you as a (wise!) friend. I'll be thinking and praying for you. I know from experience how difficult that can be. Hopefully our playdate will be a fun distraction for you. See you tomorrow!!

      P.S.
      Thanks for the prayers concerning the kiddos. I'll be praying the same for you. <3

We are His portion and He is our prize...

I've had this song in my head for a few days now. I love Kim Walkers voice and the passion that she portrays in this song. McMillan did a wonderful job in writing this song, the lyrics are so profound and encouraging and...different (the "sloppy wet kiss" part makes me smile). I especially love the first part of this song...

He is jealous for me,
Loves like a hurricane, I am a tree,
Bending beneath the weight of his wind and mercy.
When all of a sudden,
I am unaware of these afflictions eclipsed by glory,
And I realize just how beautiful You are,
And how great Your affections are for me.

And oh, how He loves us so,
Oh how He loves us,
How He loves us all

Yeah, He loves us,
Whoa! how He loves us,
Whoa! how He loves …

My favorite flower. The peony.

The peony is my favorite flower. They have always held a special place in my heart. For as long as I can remember, they've grown in my childhood backyard. My mom has a plant from the house I was born in, their current house - the house I grew up in - and a plant from my Great-Grandma. As kids, we would watch in awe as the ants crawled over the peony buds, almost willing them to open. It was a chore getting those little suckers off once the flowers were ready to be cut and brought into the house. But it was worth the effort.

My dad has always commented that the flowers smell like old lady perfume. Haha!  I still think of that when I bring the blooms up to my nose for a whiff of Spring. They're such a romantic flower. I wanted them for my bridal bouquet, but they had already stopped blooming by the time June 3rd rolled around. So sad.

Apartment living was dreary for me when it came to flowers. No lilacs, tulips or peonies. When we moved to our current house, I was …

Be Still, My Soul. Remembering...

My first post of 2014.

Looking back on my last post, I'm overwhelmed with many emotions. It was the last post before our world was turned upside down, before the cold weather hit hard, before doctor visits became our norm. Before Halloween, Thanksgiving, my 30th birthday, Christmas and New Years. Looking back at the title of that post, I'm struck with how appropriate it was for the rest of the year. I tried to blog a few times since October 13th. But I never got to the point where I felt like I could publish. I had a million and one thoughts constantly tumbling around in my tiny mind. Writing helped to unload it, but just like it is with my trusty old dishwasher, there's always dirty dishes to take the place of the clean ones and I found myself overwhelmed and overcome with both good and bad...clean and dirty. My brain has felt like mush since October. Add holidays, getting sick, taking care of sickies, being the strong one, being the brave one, being the hea…
