I have two "weeks" that my life rotates around. I am coming to the end of my good one. The good one is where I only work 1 day out of 7. My one day falls smack dab in the middle of my good week--3 off, 1 on, 3 off. I get very productive during that 2nd group of 3. My bad week is quite bad. I work 5 12 hour shifts in 7 days--3 on, 2 off, 2 on. I am very unproductive on those 2 off and the first 3 of my good week as I am recovering from the bad.
That is what made today feel so good. I unpacked 6 boxes and found homes for everything in those boxes. I hung pictures up in several rooms of the house (although I still have a lot waiting to go up). I bathed both girls. I made all 3 meals today (this is rare, Ralph has been doing almost all the cooking). I had time while both girls napped (at the same time!!!) to spend some time in the Word. Ralph did the grocery shopping and ran quite a few errands. After dinner, he cleaned out the fridge, freezer and pantry while I just assisted (how cool is that?!). Oh, and did I mention I almost blew myself up with the grill? No? Well, I'll have to tell you about that later. Did I mention I blogged too? Yeah, you probably figured that part out already.
Now we are relaxing, drinking coffee, surfing the web at oh, 11:30 at night. No wonder I struggle getting up at 4:45 am on my days to work! Oh, well. I was pretty excited about all I got done today and had to share. It probably won't happen again for another two weeks. It is starting to look like home here. I found some of my "favorites" in those boxes. Things that speak to my heart that I love having in my home. Hope you all had a great day today (probably yesterday as you read this) and another good one tomorrow (today).
|And what is a good blog post without pictures? I just realized today that I took similar pics of both girls at 3 months. How cute are they?! Nugget is on top and Zita on the bottom. Nugget's reminding me a bit of Benjamin Button. Not sure that's a good thing.|
