It's 10:21 p.m., Wednesday, and I haven't forgotten my goal of writing something on Wednesdays, even if only to get the creative juices flowing for another day. I must admit, not much is flowing right now, so I'm resorting to a blog technique I've seen others do and that seems to fit my not-much-to-say-on-any-one-thing dilemma. Top ten thoughts -- go:
1 -- We are having such a great school year. I'm not trying to brag or gloat, but this has been our best school year thus far. I attribute part of it to having gotten our science text completed during the summer, thus lightening the load for the rest of the school year a little bit; and part of it to having all my students literate! Work goes much more quickly when even the youngest can read the directions on his math worksheet without help!
2 -- I met my first nephew last week and he is... I can't even come up with a word delectable enough to describe him. Precious, beautiful, kissable, sweet, hilarious (love the faces babies make!), and oh-so-sweet smelling. I wanted to take him home, but alas, he would have missed mommy before we got very far down the road!
3 -- On a related note, we're still eagerly awaiting the chance to hug and kiss and snuggle and love on our first niece, who is halfway across the world and awaiting a visa so she can travel here (and back... I think it's the "and back" part that's actually causing the hang-up). Hopefully soon!
4 -- Wow, did I really say top ten? I may have to reduce that number.
5 -- Since I missed writing anything on the day before Thanksgiving, my belated thankful list: Wade! He takes such good care of me and our boys. He's my rock and my pillow and he makes me smile every time I see him.
6 -- Our boys! They are such a joy.
7 -- Family: immediate, extended, near, far, biological, foster and honorary. I have been so blessed.
8 -- Our church family at Holland Center who bless us, accept us, put up with us and teach us and for some odd reason really seem to like us.
9 -- Friendships new and old: the women I didn't know my heart needed until we moved here, and the ones I miss so much now that we aren't in Washington.
10 -- Ten! I made it! Hope it wasn't cheating to go make number 5 spill over into 6, 7, 8 and 9.
Hope you all have a lovely night and a blessed week.
