~ missing my kids. having one of those days that just sneaks up on me. one of those mornings where i'm so sad to leave my kids and go to work... so sad that my heart physically hurts. days like this make me quiet (i'm sure you'll find it hard to believe that i'm usually anything but quiet). it seems like these days often come after a big rush of fun family things... after weekends where the kids were especially good... after holidays... after mornings when the kids wake up and want to hug my neck over and over... mornings like this morning.
~dreaming. of all the fun times that are fast approaching. i love, love this time of year. i spent a few minutes trying to add a christmas countdown widget to my blog (is it bad that i don't think it's too early at all?), but couldn't figure it out, so i'll have to try again later.
this is a picture from big sis's first christmas, which was 4 days before her 1st birthday:
seems like ages ago! and yet it seems like yesterday.... christmas of 2006
~ balancing. trying to figure out how to squeeze in some blogging time tonight in btwn hugging my kids as much as they'll let me and starting wk 6 of c25k. because i've got to finish my recap of our halloween party. there were some costumes you do not want to miss!
