I'm joining in (and linking up) with my favorite girl in Italy, Stephanie, and her Blog Your Heart series/post.
- I am cherishing my husband and our long marriage, while still reaching for more closeness and connection. I'm crushing on that man big time.
- I try to meet my daughter's moods with patience and love, but last night after hours of whining about the unfairness of having to do her math homework and why couldn't she just use a calculator and why can't we homeschool her or send her to private school and why can't she just play video games, I lost my temper and called her a "frickin' brat." Not my finest moment. Ugh. It was an accurate description of her attitude and behavior, but it doesn't represent how and who I want to be, as her Mom. At lights out time, all was well between us, but I feel like I have a temper hangover today.
- I signed up for NaNoWriMo and have written just 861 words so far. I really got into the zone with my pen and notebook on Saturday during G's swim lesson, but haven't made any time to write since then. Even if I don't hit the 50,000 word goal, I should really see if this idea has any legs.
- Holy cow -- how did Thanksgiving get so close?
[I blog most often over on this section of my blog. I just choose to put these more introspective posts here. ]
