We just got back from a long weekend visiting family and friends for the Easter holiday. I'll post some photos when I locate the camera cord. It was, of course, a lot of fun, but we are so tired... Oona even fell asleep at a decent baby bed time (fingers crossed... she could still wake up and decide to have a party!). Now that we're back home, thoughts about real life are creeping in... taxes to finish asap, bills that need to get paid, extensional questions about what we're doing, where we're going, and how we're ever going to save a bit of something to have the gas to get "there". Solar powered thoughts might help. Like many out there, we are just trying to stay a float in a tough economy... but also trying to swim a little closer to our dreams. It's hard not to take it a little personally when the things you put your sweat and tears into are not only not working out, but not recognized or appreciated. I don't know where I'm going with this. Baby sleeping... mama brain starts to spin in strange directions... no longer making sure daredevil doesn't jump off rocking horse, couch, chair, etc.
- for a home of our own
- to improve the one we're in at the moment, since the first thought will take sometime
- to get rid of this sore throat/cold
- less stuff... need to say good bye to some things
- Jake to get home from his practice
- less money stress in life
- a cup of peppermint tea
