thursday thoughts

These are just a few random thoughts from the last couple days... :)

(Par for the course around here, right? :P)

1. We were waiting to get a hinge for this cabinet for over a week, but my handy man (ha!) was able to fix it without needing the expensive hinge after all! 


It surprises me how even new houses need repair more often that you would think! Plus, we need to repaint the doors again for the third or fourth time since we built the house 2.5 years ago. This is the side of the life that's not so pretty to share, but hey, now you've seen it too. :)

2. I love two things about this picture from yesterday afternoon- #1, she fell asleep in my arms which never happens, and #2, her Batman paci:  :D


3. Both boys were studying hard for their tests well after 5 p.m. last night which makes this homeschooling mama's heart happy: :)


They want to do a good job, and that alone is exciting!

4. Never try to break a stainless tumbler's fall with your foot:


A child dropped his big cup while I was cooking last night, and I decided to quickly stop it with my foot because I thought it was my water bottle. Not the smartest. :)

5. When I was growing up and my Granny would come and stay, we made yellow cake with warm chocolate icing. It was so delicious. I tried to replicate it last night with what I had on hand and it was not quite as good as hers, but it did the job and the kids were happy. :)


6. We had an entire day without leaving the house and it was wonderful! :) I took a long nap with the baby, worked on a project, made dinner, the kids and husband washed the car, and then we all went on a walk and went to bed early. I felt a ton better! Staying home and getting a few things back on track really helped our day feel less chaotic. :D
