So as I lurk through blogland (or blogosphere, whatever) I notice that a lot of people do a “wordless wednesday” or a “thankful thursday” or like my friend Tam at InProgress does, a “Fill In Friday” (which is really fun!) and I really like that they do this. Kind of simplifies things for when you can’t think of something to blog about, or for when you are thinking of too much to blog about, which happens to be the case for me most of the time. I have been told more than once that some of my blog posts are little novelas. 😉 So today I was thinking about my blog and I thought I wanted to revamp a few things, and having a point to each day kind of strikes my fancy. 😉 Yes I said “strikes my fancy” just like I also say “draw the boys a bath” to Jake, to which he says “seriously? did you seriously just say DRAW them a bath?” Yes. Yes I did.
Anyway, I came up with a Monday through Friday theme and I have to say I am kind of excited about it. Plus, I think in the next few weeks (2 months about) when our lives will SO extremely chaotic with moving and everything that entails, it will be good to still post a blog w/o thinking much about it. I’ll save the weekends for my outpours. Jake is home then and that will give me quiet time. 😀
So this is what I came up with:
Mouthwatering Monday: For all of my easy family recipes that we love. They are so great I am always passing them on to friends. In fact several of my cookbooks are loaned out right now. I must get those back. 😉
Talk To Me Tuesday: I’ll post a question that has been on my mind that I wonder what everyone else thinks about. I often wonder what others think about things, or if others think about the same things. Tuesday though could also be Top Ten Tuesday, just depends on my mood. I haven’t decided yet. haha! 😉
Wordless Wednesday: I like the idea of this one and enjoy looking at others’ wordless wednesdays. 😀 I see it all over blogland.
Thankful Thursday: This one really blesses me to read on other blogs. It reminds me to be thankful for the little things, not just the big things. One that I read said “tiny hands patting my cheek” and I instantly felt all warm and fuzzy thinking of when Owen pats my cheek or when Dylan rubs my arm or when Aidan runs his fingers through my hair. Lots to be thankful for! 😀
Funny Ha Ha Friday: The boys are CONSTANTLY saying funny stuff. I am sure that I can find something to add every friday here. 😉
So to start it off today Dylan said the most hilarious thing to me. I couldn’t stop laughing. I was talking to him about moving to North Dakota, b/c he seems very nervous about it. He is always asking to see pics of where we are going and lately he has been very clingy and even climbing into our bed several times at night, just since we found out. He even asked once if we were going to leave him behind! 😦 This is how our conversation went today:
M: Dylan how do you feel about us moving to North Dakota? (after we had talked about it a bit)
D: I don’t like it.
M: you don’t?
D: No, I don’t.
M: Why not? Does it made you sad?
D: It makes me feel gooerish.
D: no, gooerish
D: yeah, gooerish, not gooberish. (B/c there is clearly a difference)
M: Oh. Well what does gooerish mean?
D: Gooerish is when I don’t like something.
M: Oh, so you feel gooerish about moving? You don’t like it?
D: yeah, it’s gooerish.
Okay then. 😉 hahahahaha! I love my kids! heehee
