Backyard, a work in progress.  We used to have lush grass in our little back yard - and then we had four boys in a row - the first one was the hardest on everything from furniture to landscaping!

I am thinking...
about the difficult week that just passed.

And I hosted a reception for our choir concert.  

Between it all were the swimming lessons.

From the Learning Room...
taking a break this week.

From the kitchen...
Turkey tonight!
I am wearing...
Black athletic pants, and an orange work out top by Danskin.

I am remembering:
For mama, always. I do feel a sense of - I don't know... maybe acceptance since her anniversary has passed.


I am creating...
a nicer backyard. And some ivy around my new tree that is coming today!
Update - it's here!

I am going...
to work out with my new kettlebell and the Bob Harper Kettlebell workout.  That is killer! Planning that for Wednesday.  Tomorrow I am either going to do Complete Aerobics with weights or Firm: Calorie Killer .
I am reading...
















I am hoping...
to finish swimming lessons this week and kind or relax before my next rehearsal and wedding this weekend.

I am hearing...
the buzz in my ears and the humm of my computer.

Around the house... 
My new tree comes today!!   Pictures to follow.

pictures I am sharing:  
Gabe's new hair cut.

i read the duggar's book before i had my first child and it blows me away how chill they are and how michelle disciplines without yelling or spanking. i'm glad i read it because it showed me that there's no such thing as a perfect family -- you kind of have to just figure out what works.
