Saten is attacking!

Today was another attempt at the stay at home mom bit...it didn't go all wrong but it was very VERY long.  Miss Abbie has a cold and in return its hurting her ears and that my friends makes for a super cranky child.  It would have been okay if she wanted to sit and snuggle with me but I would pick her up and sit her with me and she was so fidgety!  She just wouldn't sit still so I put her on the floor and she would cry and cry and cry and I would pick her up and she would cry and fidget...you can see the vicious cycle starting can't you.  Add to that trying to get chores done around the house and a dog that wanted to play and snuggle and you get a very long day.  I can't say that over the past few days it hasn't ocurred to me that I should have just stayed at work but I know this is God's calling for my life and saten can attack me all he wants but I'll just pray and pray and try harder.  Well friends I'm out for the night, I'm going to wait for my love to get home from work. 

Blessings today and always,

Day 2....Attempting a full day out

Well today is Saturday, once a month on a Saturday morning me and a few lady friends get together for what we call "Coffee Chronicles" it's basically just a time for us ladies to get together study scripture together, encourage one another and drink coffee and eat yummy breakfast food!!  Well today we didn't make it to the actual bible study but we had a wonderful time of encouraging each other in our marriages sharing struggles that we have with ourselves and praying for one another.  It amazes me that we always end up hanging out till the early afternoon!  So around one I headed over to Target (diaper run) and got me and Abbie some lunch!  Then we headed over to PetSmart to take a look because they are having a pet adoption there today and there were the CUTEST shepherd mixes there!  Now, Adam and I have been praying and talking about getting a puppy and I didn't get one today but we're going Monday on Adam's day off to look at them.  I'm praying they still have one left because they were SO sweet!  It's going on 5 o'clock and I'm about to start laundry...I will never understand my need to wait till the late afternoon to get started on laundry!  I need to work on that!  Anyhow, Abbie is waking up from her way to short a nap so I need to get her!  I'll leave you with a picture of this sweet dog! Tell me it's not the most adorable!

Blessings today and always,

Stay at home mom

Today started my first day as an official full time stay at home mom....I had visions of what it was going to be like.  I was going to be like Martha Stewart get my house SPARKLING clean and have my husband come home to a nice home cooked meal a full fridge from the visit to the store I did and a daughter in her high chair ready for dinner...ummm NOT.  That is not like ANYTHING that happened today!  My day started out with a cranky daughter waking up to early with dark circles under her eyes coughing at me because she caught my cold from last week.  I got her up got her changed gave her a cup of milk and we snuggled which was nice :)  I finished my grocery list printed that two recipes and my meal plan for the next two weeks out (sounds like its starting off ok doesn't it) well Abbie goes down for her nap and I relax for a little while.  I get ready to leave the house getting myself cleaned up, getting Abbie's bag together and just in time for her to wake up from her nap (perfect timing) I then left the house in plenty of time to get to my previous place of employment for the going away lunch they were throwing for me (which was nice) well on the way I stop to fill my car up (and here starts the down fall of my day) FIFTY SIX DOLLARS to fill up my car.  I remember the day when I said "I'm never getting a truck they cost fifty bucks to fill up (jokes on me right).  Well we get done with lunch and Abbie's doing alright mood wise so I decide to go to the store to get my groceries for the next couple weeks I get Abbie out of the car get in the store and.....my list is at home on my kitchen counter.  Way to go Amy!  So I load Abbie BACK in the car go home lay her down for her way to short afternoon nap and she wakes up in the WORST mood a mother can ask for, poor thing just doesn't feel good!  So we snuggled all evening because that husband that was suppose to come home still isn't home and it's 10:30.  So needless to say my first day as a stay at home mom wasn't perfect but I loved it still the same.  Instead of someone else holding my child because she doesn't feel good it was me.  I love my life and I love that my husband works so hard so that I can wipe these runny noses all the time!  Tomorrow is another day...maybe I'll get my house spotless tomorrow...maybe :-/
