I sat here for what seemed like forever, trying to figure out what to write about. Bedtime wasn’t going well, so my creativity was hindered. Then I started writing something deep, but just couldn’t. So I tried to be inspirational. “Why I am like a delicious mix of ice cream.” Eh? Yeah that didn’t happen either.
So here I am, pondering my week last week, looking forward to next week. It is all a mish-mash of randomness. Nothing goes together. But it all goes so well together. Because this is my life. My life is beautifully crazy and strange. As perfectly delightful as Chewbaca playing with Princess Cadence and Heatwave the Rescue Bot.
That is just one little glimpse into the joys of three kids under the age of six. Thankfully, they all play well together, not even caring about crossing imaginary boundaries.
As I sit here, smiling and rejoicing in my blessings, I want to share some of what is on my heart with you. I am trying so hard to keep it organized…but my heart is just so full that it might seem kinda random.
Josh took Lizzie on a five-hour date, just the two of them. I spent the best time ever with David and Lucy.
Then the next day Josh and I were given a rare gift – spending time with friends our age, and without kids! Together! We need to do this “hanging out with friends” thing more often. It is so much fun, even if it is so difficult to coordinate.
I start my new job soon! Josh might get to serve on jury duty! (He is really really giddy – no sarcasm! I’m serious. He really wants to get picked and do this. I’m proud of him)
And I have a super close friend that is going to have a baby boy soon. I cannot wait to hold this baby! (I adore holding new babies and playing with babies. Even more thrilled that I get to hand the baby back and not have to go through pregnancy and childbirth).
Funny Josh story
Josh took David and Lucy fishing Sunday afternoon. He was basically running three fishing poles by himself. He cast David’s and set it down. As he reached for his fishing pole, David’s caught a fish – and plop! Down it went, into the lake. (Josh was on a bridge, not the edge of the water).
They mourned the loss of the fishing pole – and the fish that took it down – and kept fishing.
A little time went by and Josh kept catching fish. Then, after he cast his line, he caught another one! Except…this felt different. So he reeled it in slower. He caught a fish alright! And as he reeled it in, he caught something else with it! On the way in, he caught David’s fishing pole and a fish still on that little boy’s hook!
Yup! He caught a fishing pole with a fishing pole, and each had a fish on it!
I need some good recipes for Trout now!
