hi friends :) i was about to post some more pictures of the weekend with family including a picnic at a park, but that will wait for some other time. michael is in class and i'm sitting here... kind of bored. dishes are done. laundry is finishing up. and i'm thinking i'll watch lots of televison. exciting night, right? i feel like sometimes i forget to enjoy these quiet moments. the silence. yes, millie goes a little crazy every now and then, but she's being super sweet tonight.
i feel like sometimes i am wishing the next big thing would happen in life. i think my life gets dull so i need something new and exciting to happen. but, you know, i really want to just be okay with right now. i know God has SO many wonderful things in store for the future, but He's also given me so many wonderful things right now. i need to embrace right now a little better... because i have a feeling i'll regret it a few years down the road if i don't. i want more adventures. i look at all these blogs that seem like it's one big adventure after the next and dream of adventures like theirs. i don't want to get caught up in wanting this or that... but to be happy with my family and not worry about how much money we have. i want to live and not just work all the time (i feel like i have to keep my current job mostly because of insurance...any pointers here?!) i want to stay home with my kids one day. maybe these feelings have something to do with the fact i'm getting ready to turn 24 and i still feel like there is SO much i need to learn about who i really am. and maybe i feel like i should have a lot of that figured out by now. i'm reaaally looking forward to this spring because michael will finally be finished with school and he'll have more time. we'll have more time. i want us to have time before bringing a baby into this world. remember all my previous "baby fever" remarks? well, i'm okay with waiting a little while longer. we're in no rush. we'll be living life and adding a baby eventually to join in and i want baby to have a pretty darn good life.
p.s. has anyone ever heard of the cookbook more with less? i was thinking about getting it and wanted to know if it's worth it.
