What a day! For the first time in a long while, we were home all day. It was really nice. And while I had hoped to get more things done around here, I am happy that I got to cuddle with Flannery a bit and help Amos do various (and messy!) projects. I still got things done but it was a struggle to stay focused.
Today was the first day that I’ve missed coffee for somthing other than the caffeine. I think I miss the romance that surrounds coffee. Someone mentioned on Facebook how they were sitting at a Panera, with their husband, having a cup of coffee together and immediately, I missed it. I missed the thought of sitting and hanging out, sipping on a cup of joe. The funny thing is that I cannot remember the last time (aside from last week when I was on vacation) that I have sat down and had a leisurely cup of coffee. I never sit at the table and just sit. I’m usually chugging as I feed one or both children. I think if I go back to drinking coffee, I may get up early just to sit and sip a cup of decaf.
Today I realized that I feel really level. I feel so even keel and even when I was hungry, my blood sugar didn’t plummet. I haven’t felt this good since before getting pregnant with Flannery, over a year and a half ago. I think my thyroid is evening out too, which really helps.
I worked out today, but only for 40 minutes and not the full hour. It was either finish the workout or get a shower, since Flannery was due to wake up and want lunch. I chose the latter and don’t regret it. I’m pretty sore.
Tonight we had dessert for community group and I really wanted to eat the yummy looking cheese cake with raspberry compote. I didn’t really miss dessert until tonight. Our friend Jeremy makes such yummy desserts every week that they are my one treat!
Last night before bed, I read the first few chapters of Matthew. My One Year Bible was downstairs (still is!) so I read the Bible near my bed. I read about the lineage of Jesus, leading up to his birth, and found out that Amos, the prophet was in the list. I had no idea! That definitely makes Amos’ name more special! I also found it ironic that I was reading the Christmas story after Christmas. Still, it was moving and things stuck out to me like never before.
Tomorrow, my parents come for a few days and I am interested to see how that goes. I’ve bought some wine in honor of my mother’s few days’ of freedom. I hope to keep up my end of the deal, so we’ll see how it goes!
