I have been having a great week!
I got my house clean, I got to spend a couple days with my family. It was too short but so good to see them!
I took a day off, I finished Season 2 of Pretty Little Liars and I’ve watched a couple movies.
I watched a very funny movie tonight which put me in a very good mood!
I got to spend an evening watching tv and eating pizza with my husband.
And I am so excited for the weekend where I will have down time, more movie time, book time, and friend time.
AND I haven’t had a migraine since Monday night!! 4 Days with no Migraine! Woot Woot!!
I have been having a great week!
My favorite color is blue. It always has been it probably always will. I like to wear blue because I think it looks good on me. I have only had a blue room once. And that is when I got to pick my own color. It was blue, with pink polka dots. Yeah, it was pretty awesome. To me, blue is happy and calm. This is my favorite shade of blue:
Isn’t it beautiful? And it just works out that my favorite basketball team is blue (The Kentucky Wildcats). I just love the color blue. It is my favorite.
What is your favorite color?
A feeling of accomplishment is one of the best feelings in the world. Having a whole list of things to do and not being able to check any of them off feels like failure, but even if I mark only one thing off I have accomplished something.
Yesterday I was stressed because of all the things on my to-do list and between last night and today I have checked nearly all of them off. Now that’s accomplishment if I do say so myself. Last night I finished all of the laundry, did all the dishes, went grocery shopping, and read my Bible. And then today I made all my phonecalls, paid all the bills, I made dinner, balanced the checkbook, kept up with the dishes, made Rice Krispie treats, and got to watch The Voice last night and tonight. Talk about marking things off my list!
I only have a few more things to get done before Thursday and I know that I will be able to get them done. I feel like the more I get done, the more I will be able to do. Want to know how I was able to get so much done last night and tonight?
Adam wasn’t home. I always get most of my to-do list accomplished when Adam isn’t around. When he is, I’m lucky if I get one thing marked off my list. I think it is because when I am by myself the only thing I can do is mark things off my list.
Yay for this feeling of accomplishment, I predict I will sleep soundly tonight!
As I told you before, I am currently reading Julie and Julia, which if you do not know, is about Julie Powell cooking her way through Julia Child’s Mastering the Art of French Cooking. And I am really enjoying it. Today while I was reading, I ran upon this paragraph that I would like to share with you.
Right before this paragraph, Julie is making a very delicate sauce for her mussels and is trying to add just the right amount of spices. Her husband Eric is standing beside her while she cooks.
I was Tom Cruise hoving with a bead of sweat. I was Harrison Ford in a battered fedora, weighing a bag full of sand in my hands—and Eric understood. He was my partner. It occurred to me, as I beat my rebellious sauce into submission, that my husband was doing more than just enduring this crazy thing I had gotten myself into, doing more than being supportive. I realized this was his Project, too. Eric wasn’t a cook, and like Isabel, he only care about Julia Child because I did. And yet, he had become part of this thing. There would be no Project without him, and he would not be the same without the Project. I felt so married, all of a sudden, and so happy.
I really enjoyed this section because 1-of the movie references and 2-because her realization of marriage.
I know I have had this same realization of marriage many times. Adam partners with me in many crazy things: crafting, scrapbooking, my movie lists, to name a few. And while he is not as invested in them as I am, he shares in the good and the bad with me. Adam is not just my partner in crime, but my partner in crazy! He truly is my partner in life.
Yay for realizations of the amazing men in our lives!
