Another Day for random thoughts in a list

~I am so thankful for a reliable babysitter! We've gotten a date night four Friday's in a row now! :O) It doesn't even matter what we go do, I'm just thankful for the time.

~The walls in our girls' bedroom are brown wood and I've wanted to paint them since we moved in. Today I started on what may turn into a long term project. I'm painting the walls in vertical stripes of three different colors. (I'll post pictures when I'm done, but I'm not even going to guess on how long that'll be)

~I finally got my plant starts in my garden yesterday. Watching things grow will be really neat, and hopefully produce yummy veggies.

~Max Lucado writes amazing children's books. I have a hard time not crying every time I read one aloud. (In a good way)

~Praying that we can order parts and fix our furnace ourselves and not have to pay the amount the service guy quoted us. EEK! (one of my very sweet children who shall remain anonymous managed to flood our basement with 1/2 inch of water and saturate the inside of the furnace)

~Noah turned 2 last week! We had fun celebrating, though I think he was completely unaware of what was going on and why we were singing to him. :P

~I'm trying to wean myself off of caffeine. I'm down to one cup of coffee per day from two and I switched to caffeine free diet coke since I can't seem to stay away from it altogether. Thinking decaf coffee is next.

As you decrease your caffeine...I must increase mine. :) I'm gonna have two today in your honor Laura!

Hi Laura
Those date nights sounds fantastic!! We do it all too rarely (although we try to once a week eat after the kids are in bed).
I weaned myself off coffee (my only form of caffiene) last year for my 30th - except I went cold turkey - let's just say that I was very, very sick for about 4 days,but then no worries after that. I do think you're doing it a much more sensible way!
Hope you're having a very Happy Mothers Day with your beautiful family
Renata :)

You are a brave woman to give up caffeine. I couldn't do it ;P I am sure the girls room will look very cute. I envy your date nights :P

Kimmie said...

Oh, why must you give up coffee? (I am sure it is the right decision for you, but my heart screams, "LAURA, NO!!"

Glad you have gotten back to date nights. What have you done (hey, I am living vicariously through yours right now.) I am sure they were wonderful whatever they were.

bless you my sweet friend.
