I am feeling like myself again...

just a lot of little things lately, not any one thing in particular, but I am feeling more like "me" again.

I am so excited to get our house in order and decorated, to plan meals and activities for me and the girls, to re-connect with family and friends. I feel like I am coming out of the fog ~ and it is wonderful. :)

I have decided to disconnect a little bit ~ I know that sounds kind of counterproductive. But I need to prioritize my time and use it where it matters most. So I am going to try a little less internet at home and a little less overcommitting to playdates and nights out.

I get the girls back today - I have missed them. I can't wait to show them some goodies I got them from Ikea!

We will work in the yard this weekend ~ plant some flowers, put in the hopscotch grid and rake mulch with our very own kid-size rakes! I'd like to buy or make some bird feeders - we get lots of birds in our yard. I also need to get some ideas for the butterfly garden we want to do. It will be good to be out in the sun and working up a sweat.


  1. Sounds like a great plan! I bet you've missed you're little cuties.....plan special time tonight. Can't wait to see the yard when you're done.

  2. On Saturdays, Lowes and Home Depot have crafts for kids to build. They have bird houses some times. Call your local Lowes and Home Depot and see what is sceduled. As always with all my recomendations, this is a FREE event!

  3. Sounds like a wonderful weekend. I love doing yard work with the kids, they always see it as fun and not a chore :)
