Currently (08.24.15)

Bringing it back old school. Hoping to make this a (semi-) regular feature 'round here. No promises. Ever. Because I'm writing while entertaining two sweet ragamuffins, which makes it hard as heck to get stuff accomplished on the computer. But the weather is nice and they are happy outside with me, so I'm trying.

Excited for: This is a big week 'round these parts -- Clare is staring preschool on Tuesday! There will definitely be pictures and more on that later in the week. (At a minimum, Charles is off this weekend, so I'll get something pulled together then.)

Thinking about: Peter's sleep/teeth/whatever issues. 'Cause man, does he have them. Every time I feel like we have him sleeping well, something happens and we regress, regress, regress. I blame teething, but I don't know. He's just not the best sleeper, and he's a great example of how different kids need different things, so what worked for one just might not work as well for the other. 

But he's walking and throwing (EVERYTHING) like a pro, so there's that.

Reading: Thanks to Peter not napping, my afternoon time has been pretty limited, so I've not read nearly as much as I would like to have. I'm stalled out mid-way through Go Set a Watchman, but because I'm "reading something," I haven't picked up anything else. Dreaming of a day when I have more time to read -- wishing it didn't mean wishing away the future.

Making: I'm getting back into my bread routine. The weather has been ever so slightly cooler, so it kicked my bottom back into the kitchen. I made these beauties Friday afternoon.

In Residency: One more week of this rotation (outpatient pediatrics), which means lots of clinic time, which is more of a mixed bag for all of us than you might imagine. I think we're ready for another service month. Remind me of this in 4 weeks when we're sick of OB and so so so ready to be off service again. ;-)

Grateful for: The aforementioned break in the weather. It was beautiful all week -- cool in the mornings, not too hot even in the late afternoons. Spoiled. We've been able to go to the park and the zoo and go outside and on walks. Plus, we've had some rain and cloud cover. Lovely weather never goes out of style.

From the train ride at the park. 

Praying for: I have several friends who need prayer for various situations. Praying for them.
