Sunday Funday!

21 Nov

If all you have been thinking about is Christmas cards you are completely like me .. last year! This year I vowed to have all the Christmas cards and Thank You cards completed before December happened and YAY! It happened!! I wanted to keep the similar style but do something a little different and I think they turned out pretty well 🙂 I also dabbled with colored inks instead of black and although it was fun it didn’t really show up on the red and dark green cards. I think I’ll have to stick to white or pastel color paper when I use color inks.

I managed to finally clean E’s room!!! She outgrew her clothes and I was running out of space to keep them so her floor was covered in piles of and boxes of clothes for a while. It’s all nice and clean now!

Totally random but we got this from a friend of a friend for the baby shower and every day I admire it! I can’t wait until I get back to this level of creativity… the saying “You lose it if you don’t use it” really applies to me.

And last but not least!! My plans for tonight when E goes to bed 🙂 I got these two recipes from a free thing I got from www.freebies4mom.com (if you clicked on this last link in my last post it took you to a completely wrong website .. this one is the right one! Sorry!!) Anyways it came with like 8 different holiday dessert recipes and I got the stuff to make both of these. Super Excited!! I will let you know how they turn out tomorrow.

Well that’s all for today!

Hope you enjoyed.

Love Always,

Just One of THOSE days..

21 Nov

B was having one of those days yesterday where nothing seemed to peak his interest. He sat around the house wanting to do his usual relaxing and enjoying the day with E and I while also enjoying some TV and video gaming. Instead he flipped channels, did a little downloading, played a game, put it down, flipped channels again. He looked so bored and unmotivated that it didn’t take me long to figure out what kind of state of mind he was in. I have those days. Probably more often than anyone else I know. The poor guy only gets two days to really enjoy himself and he spends one of those days caught in the in-between feeling…

I know when I am in that kind of mood nothing seems to make it better no matter what I or anyone else seems to try and that made me stop and think. What can I do to make it any better? The typical nagging me asking him if everything was alright was definitely not helping. What do I do for me when I am in the state? What does everyone else do?

Me? I usually have to put on some music that it is uplifting and inspiring. Maybe drink some hot chocolate or tea. Then if all else fails take a nice LONG hot shower. It wasn’t until 10:30 at night that B put on some music of his and the first thing that came to my mind was .. DUHHH J why didn’t you think of that? I realize that I can’t always fix him or his feelings but I like to think that I could at least have enough ideas to get him going in the right direction.

So maybe it wasn’t meant to be me this time. Maybe he was supposed to figure out what he needed to do for him on his own. But I did think of one thing.

Chocolate Milk.

This boy loves chocolate milk like I love hot chocolate. We used to drink it every night in the summer (yes I convert to chocolate milk when it’s hot and hot chocolate when it’s cold.. it works for me). So I did it, I asked him, “Do you want me to make you some chocolate milk?” and I get an answer I seriously wasn’t expecting. He shook his head no..

What do you do for your significant other when they are in that drifting state of mind? What does your loved one do for you?

In this case, I did nothing and I felt a little disappointed in my usual AWESOME IDEA of a world. All I could do was cross my fingers and hope that tomorrow brought better days, better ideas, better laughs, and please please please bigger smiles!!

Love Always,

J
