Things I've been Thinking....

  • The Superman roller-coaster at Six Flags is really, really fun. So is Goliath, Batman, and the Georgia Scorcher.
  • The Chronicles of Narnia series is way better than I thought the first time I read them. I just finished reading The Voyage of the Dawn Treader, The Silver Chair, and The Last Battle. Now I'm so excited for the movie to come out in December.
  • Online tutorials are very, very helpful. I used them to make my girls and I coordintating dresses and skirts for the 4th of July.
  • The more sewing experience I gain, the more I like sewing. I still consider myself a beginner, but I'm excited to see my skills progressing.
  • Thank you to Abbi for letting me borrow the book Feeling Good. I am learning so much and am excited to find practical ways to deal with my sometimes distorted thoughts and feelings.
  • We're definitely in the summer groove and I'm loving it. I'm getting used to having my kids around all the time and they are getting better at working and finding ways to keep themselves busy.
  • I really wish I loved to exercise. The last couple weeks I've been averaging 1-2 workouts per week, which is okay, but not quite up to the goal I set. In order to exercise I need to get up before the girls do, but I have really enjoyed sleeping in.
  • David has got to be one of the best men EVER. He works so hard for our family and I am sometimes afraid I don't quite deserve him. He has been working in his free time to finish our basement and it is looking so, so good. I love you, David!!
