Reading.. Wonder by R.J. Palacio. I made it to the library yesterday and picked up a few books, including this one that’s been recommended to me many times. I’ve only read a couple pages so far, but I’m excited to see what all the fuss is about!
Cleaning.. I’m trying to get the house into a decent state before Josh leaves, because I know that if it’s too cluttered while he’s gone, I will get overwhelmed and I won’t do any chores the whole time he’s gone. Do any of you relate to that? Because it made me feel kinda like a lazy weirdo when I realized that was my motivation for cleaning up, haha. Whodathunk that actively cleaning would make me feel lazy?
Cooking.. last night, I made Hawaiian meatballs with pineapple, served over rice and roasted broccoli. It was really yummy and it made a lot so there are LEFTOVERS. I love when a meal lasts a few days.
Sending.. I’m putting the final touches on Donna‘s personalized secret prize for winning my birthday giveaway, and then I’m off to the post office to send Donna her box of goodies. Putting together this giveaway was really fun!
Thankful for.. the many kind people who have reached out to me after I wrote about struggling with Mom’s dementia. I was scared to publish that post, but I’m glad I did. I tried to write a little more over the weekend, but it was too much and I needed to step away. For now, I’ll just say that it means more than I can express to know that there are so many of you praying for my mom and my family. Thank you all!
I’m also thankful for unexpected hugs, caring messages from friends, all the prayers for my momma, phone calls, crockpot meals, the library, and cuddles with Lulu.
