tonight, I am...

... a little bit shocked, because I so did not realize it had been two weeks since I last blogged! It doesn't feel like two weeks. But two weeks it is. And, I'm ok with that.

...super excited because Glee is back!! Call me a "gleek" if you wish, I don't care... I need my song and dance fix. Wednesday nights are way more fun with that show. And that's how Talia "C's" it.

... loving the fact that it was cool and slightly overcast today. I even put on a sweater!

... wondering where the time went today. It feels as if nothing got done! But, we did accomplish all of the day's schoolwork and I had three piano students... well, fancy that, I guess I DID get something done!

... listening to Rosalie talk herself to sleep in her crib and absolutely adoring it. This kid gets cuter every day.

... feeling a wee bit lonely. I think it's because I miss my sisters. A lot.

... wondering why we even have dressers. Because, in all honesty, our clothes sit (folded all nice and neatly, at least) in clothes baskets pretty much until I absolutely need to put them away so I can use the baskets for the next round of laundry! Note to self: PUT AWAY THE CLOTHES. NOW.

... absolutely in love with the music of JJ Heller. Have you heard of her? If not, go here and listen. The music is lovely and she is so talented, but it's her lyrics that get me. They've had me thinking and singing and praising all day long as they run through my head, and it's wonderful. (thank you, Karen, for telling me about her!)

... desperately wanting to eat something sweet (you know, other than the Tootsie Roll I already had). And trying very hard not to give in. Maybe I should go brush my teeth.

... slightly encouraged upon finding out when I got on the Wii Fit today that I had lost 3.5 pounds since my last time using it. Of course, that was over 100 days ago, but at least it's something!

... thinking on this verse: "I love those who love Me, and those who seek Me diligently will find Me" (Prov. 8:17) and realizing that I need to be- I crave to be- so much more diligent at seeking Him. Daily.

... smiling at the memory from earlier today of Emma calling an apostrophe a "catastrophe" and Annabelle stopping in the middle of play just so she could hug all over Rosalie. Children are delightful (usually).

... noticing that my husband looks awfully cute and cozy sitting on our couch with our big fuzzy blanket. What are lists and blog posts when one could be cuddling? I'm off to join him.

good night, good night! she said with a wave of her hand and a kiss on the air

You are so cute with your hand wave! and the catastrope(') is adorable! and yay for 3.5 pounds. That IS something!

I'm trying to put all my clothes away. Off the ground. The "no clothes on the floor" rule has been in effect for just a week or so and BOY is it exhausting putting clothes away every time you wear something new. the bedroom is much cleaner though!

I always love hearing about what you've been up to. Congrats on the 3.5 lbs! Every pound is a victory. :) Emma and her catastrophe!! That is so cute! It sounds like you had a very good Wednesday. Hugs.

delightful, except for missing the sister missing thing :( I completly understand, my mom and my sister live three hours away, which is, i know, NOTHING compared to how far your sisters are, but I still miss them :(. It is CRAZY to me that people know who JJ Heller is! I worked with her like 8 years ago, in San Jose... and now she's on the RADIO! Insane!
Have a lovely week.
