I like to see other people's vacation pictures and check-ins on Facebook. I usually don't think they are bragging or showing off, I think they are sharing things that make them happy.
N*stya and her sisters live in a country that is on the news every single day. They are far enough away from the fighting to be considered safe. Is a country that is at war every considered safe? I am having a terribly difficult time not be anxious and giving it to the Lord.
In the past two days, the children in my house have eaten ice cream and popsicles more often than they have brushed their teeth.
My youngest bit herself until she cried and left a bruise. It has been a while since she has been that emotional. You know how you forget how wonderful a peace is until it is broken by a regressive behavior. That girls filled to the top with emotions and words.
I recently made my great grandmother's fruit dumplings recipe. I made a minor improvement that both my husband and sister agree is better. I felt like I won an award when they praised me!!! (please note that the 3 of the 4 kids sitting around the table still refused to eat the dish.)
My ear right ear constantly feels like it needs to "pop." I now find myself plugging my nose and trying to pop it without even thinking. So like sitting in church, driving, checking out at the store...yeah, I look like a freak. (My husband has yet to say anything but he gives me this look when I do it.)
For lunch, I secretly made myself a cup of coffee and brown sugar & cinnamon pop tarts.
