Today's Present Participle List

Outside My Window: It is HOT! It has been over 100 degrees for days now and will continue to be until the weekend!

Reading: The Bomb - with Josh and the kids. The first book we've all read together in a really long time. Brody is a little bored but he's tolerating it.  I'm really trying to get into this book since it was MY suggestion for book club. 

Making:  List after list because that is what I do. 

Working: Trying to get everything done so that I can be off for just over a week.  So looking forward to time away!

Listening: To a few new podcasts:  The Art of Simple and The Read Aloud Revival.  We (I) read aloud a lot with our boys and plan to continue to, it is a ritual that I can't imagine letting go of. 

Hoping: That I can get my butt in gear and start running again so that I can do a September 5k with Amy.  I really need to run but can't make myself get up in the morning...struggling with a little indulgence issue I think.

Planning:  Our back to back trips that start this week.  A very long weekend in Pacific City, Oregon with one group of friends followed up by another long weekend in Hood River with a different group.  Josh and I are finishing that my cashing in my Christmas White Water Rafting gift certificates.  So excited!

Wanting: To get caught up or at least restarted on my photo album/Project Life; or really even just blogging again. I feel the need to capture our memories and retain a little bit of who I am.

Loving:  My husband - that's not news I guess.  I'm just very happy with where we are and the work we put in to get here.  He's the best partner for me and father for our boys.

Wanting: Well not really wanting because its ridiculously priced but I'm admiring the new Fitbit Bracelet from Tory Burch. It's already gone from the Tory Burch site so I can't even link there.

This is What Our Day Looked Like...

Just after midnight, Boone came down to tell us that Brody was screaming at him. After a tough night getting them to sleep, I had run out of patience and just yelled at Boone to go sleep in another room. About 5 minutes later, Brody came down to tell us he had thrown up in his bed. Lovely…so after cleaning him up and cleaning his bedding up (luckily Josh woke up to help), we got him back to bed. I wasn’t so lucky - it took me another hour and a half to fall back to sleep so I read “Let’s Explore Diabetes with Owls” by David Sedaris to pass the time.
We had to wake up early so that I could drop the boys off early in order to pick up mom and get her to her dentist appointment. She had to take a valium to help with the sedation efforts so she couldn’t drive. I amazingly made it to work, just in time. We had Brody go to school today, even though he was sick last night. We were very certain it was from the huge birthday dinner and two desserts he had partnered with lots of trampoline jumping and new Wii game activity. It was…he felt great all day! At work I got so busy that I forgot to pick up the boys from school before noon due to early release and then forgot that I had a conference call from 3-5 so I had to work late. I was so glad for the day to be done and just be relaxing on the couch.
