Currently I'm trying to get the kids out the door and being met with huge resistance. Enough resistance that I'm taking a break to write this post. Some days it's impossible getting them moving.

Reading: I just started The Poisonwood Bible by Barbara Kingsolver. I'm not too sure about it but now that I've started it I'll read it. I might have to put it down and come back to it later if something else comes along. I have a bunch of books on hold at the library and one ready to pick up.

Writing: I wish I could say I was writing the content for my doula website but I'm not. I can't seem to find the motivation to get that done. Instead I'm writing blog posts and finally some pitches to companies that I want to work with. Exciting but scary, but I've resolved myself to doing it and knowing that the worst that can happen is I don't hear anything.

Making me giggle: J's admission last night that Little J's behaviour is just like his when he was little. Payback's a B, as they say.

Loving: How excited the kids were when their new shirts came in the mail. There was a big sale and instead of just buying things I liked, I let the kids pick one shirt each. Little J chose a yellow one with a truck on it and Little K chose a yellow one with a butterfly on it. Little J was shaking he was so excited. I'm learning that I'd rather him have a couple shirts he loves and will wear than more, cheaper shirts that I picked out, sitting in his dresser while he wears his two favourites over and over. My kids, they have opinions.

Watching: I actually sat down last night and started watching a movie. Other than kids movies this never happens. It was Skyfall, the latest James Bond movie. Little K woke up a couple times and eventually I just gave up, but I did see more than half the movie. On tv I've been watching Grey's Anatomy, New Girl, The Mindy Project, Modern Family, and Bunheads.

Wishing: We were heading somewhere warm for vacation. J and I were supposed to have a nice day yesterday of snowboarding and spa-ing, but puking kids put a stop to that. Hopefully they'll be healthy for next Monday.

Thinking about: What to do about preschool for Little J this spring and whether to register the kids in swimming again. Paying money and pushing them to do things versus staying home and doing nothing.... I'm glad we have a choice, but it isn't easy to decide sometimes.

Also loving: That the kids insisted on getting me flowers when they were at the store with their dad this weekend. I was upstairs when they got home and J called up saying the kids had a surprise for me. I came down and saw their smiling little faces, waving a bunch of flowers each, excitedly telling me that they got me flowers. I wasn't surprised at all that Little J picked out pink ones and Little K yellow ones. They ask me all the time if I like my flowers and beam when I say I love them. It's true - I love them.
