I haven't had the motivation to write in the last few days, but I'm back on the saddle with these 15 minutes. I haven't started off the month very well. I have been drinking less soda, so that's one thing. I realized that one of the things that has got me stuck with projects is I don't have what makes it so easy for the bloggers I read, they seem to have a stash of materials ready to pull out the minute inspiration hits. That and the fact that I don't have a sewing machine. But tonight I will pull out the stockings while I watch Ugly Betty.
So tonight the plan is:
1. give Elisabeth a bath
2. Reboot laundry
3. Pull out the stocking and supplies
4. read to Elisabeth/bedtime
5. Embroidery during Ugly Betty
6. laundry/ put away
7. bed/read if Josh isn't in bed yet.
This weekend I want to stop at the learning store and see if they have a dry erase writing board for Elisabeth and see if I can't pick up a gift for Cailyn there. Then of course we need to go to the book store to pick up the book for Cailyn as well.
I don't think we have any other plans for the weekend. Quiet times.
The past has been creeping up on me this week, thanks to a post someone wrote on Facebook to me. I know this is the reason I have been out of it this week. Why is the past so enticing when you know that it wasn't so perfect to when it happened. It is as if the time in between puts and a rose haze inbetween then and now. And for as much that I remember the tears and disappointed, those memories get set aside for the happy moments to replay, like a skipping record.
