Lost in the archives.

<<this post was a draft from early 2012>>

Reading: I am actually not reading any book currently, I put the first book of Lemony Snicket's A Series of Unfortunate Events on hold at our local library, but then forgot to go in and get it. I read books SO FAST. I cannot ever put them down. If I dont have it done in one sitting, it will be finished the next day. The last two books I read are "The Reptile Room" by Lemony Snicket, and God in the Shadows by Ravi Zacharias. They were both good reads, God in the Shadows was AWESOME. Reading about his experience growing up in India, in a completely different culture with all of its expectations, was so very interesting. I loved it so much. I laughed out loud, I cried more than a few times. I can relate to his attempt at suicide- I tried the same thing. Its amazing what can unite us, when on the outside we can look and act so differently from one another.

Watching: Lately, I've been loving movies and videos about nature. It is so very facinating to me. We rented Disney's Oceans last Friday, and my son was enamored with it. My daughter LOVES penguins, and there was a short clip of some penguins so we all enjoyed that. I also found this video on youtube the other day and LOVE I mean LOVE the reaction this guy has to the gorillas. You have to see it!! Its only 3 1/2 minutes long. You won't regret it :)


Thinking About: The next couple of months. Worrying about it all. Baby #3 making her way into our lives, the uncertainty of work for Barry this summer. Little B starting Kindergarten this fall. Its all so crazy and going so fast and I just worry so much.


Anticipating: That sweet newborn baby smell. Cuddling and cherishing this new little addition to our family, seeing  B and I with their new little sister

Listening to: Future of Forestry. Travel 1. LOVELY LOVELY music that belongs in movies.

Eating: Lots of ciabatta sandwiches- they are TASTY! I also can't get enough pineapple. Baby #3 LOVES pinapple!!

Feeling Thankful For: Having minimal swelling and still being able to sleep pretty well. I like to sleep. I like to get enough sleep. When I don't, its so very hard for me to function. I think I need more sleep than the average person.
