Yeah... we had our family dinner tonight! Brian was in Burma backpacking so it was fun to have him back. He leaves soon to return to the states for seminary so we need to take advantage of our Monday nights. Isabella was a little hesitant at first but she quickly warmed up to him and before heading to bed... ran to him to give him a hug. It was sweet. Although Daddy didn't appreciate it when she chose to give Brian a hug over him. What little girls will do to get out of going to bed. LOL
We had a very productive day today... cleaning! I know... fun day off but we SO needed to do it and now we can open our closet without fearing for our lives and walk into the bathroom without stepping in sand. We cleaned top to bottom, threw away a lot of unnecessary things, re-organized our kitchen and I went through all my clothes. It felt so good to have this major cleaning weeks (instead of days) before we will move. We don't have a lot but we've noticed that we have accumulated a few things since moving and decided to go through and spring clean. Speaking of moving... it's about that time where we can say... 'Yes we will move in mid-July' and not worry about a lease so now we getting serious about a flat. We have three options available to us right now so please pray that it all works out and God guides us to the perfect place.
A me moment~
I'm so proud of myself. I have successfully gone 4 days without SODA! This is a huge milestone for me. (Ok stop laughing!)
I forgot to mention a fun tid-bit about my daughter. At one year old she has gotten to experience some foods that most American babies have not. She has eaten (and enjoyed) chinese dumplings, fried rice, bbq pork, jellyfish (yes I said jellyfish) and hummus. In fact, she will lick the hummus off the cracker and hand me the cracker while pointing to the hummus for more. LOL
Ah... he's the greatest. He scrubbed the frig down for me today (among many other things) but this was quite the job that I have been putting off for weeks! LOL And he treated me to chai. We've decided that we have to find a babysitter so we can go sit at starbucks and have chai. We used to do this a lot in Toccoa and it was always a great time to just talk. So Hannah... we may add something to your requirements. (JK) LOL
Mike says I've been writing in a different style lately. He says I write, "just the facts." I guess I don't have any exciting stories to tell. Although I did read this in a magazine tonight....
"My 5yr old son likes to pick his nose and eat his boggers. Is this harmful?" I don't know... what do you think? LOL
