I miss the sun. I'm okay with clouds in the summer time when they bring much wanted rain and thunderstorms, but more snow and cold? I'll pass.
I think part of my problem is that we have to large windows in our living room and instead of turning on lights, I just let the sunlight in through the blinds. On cloudy days, though, it's just dark all the time. Very depressing and unhealthy.
January 2 and I'm already done with winter. I may have a long couple of months ahead of me.
Especially with my dogs. But that's another post on another day.
We had a great day yesterday. Lots of napping, eating out, sledding swinging and Superman and I watched some movies once the kids were in bed. Eagle Eye was one of them. It was alright. It made me not want to blog, e-mail, text or talk on the phone again, but whatever. =D I'm a big fan of Shia LeBouf, for some reason. I just really believe everything he says and does -- it doesn't seem like he's acting or memorizing lines. Maybe. I don't know. But I like 'im.
Now that I have another blog that I've committed to writing on daily, I'm finding it harder to write here. I'm gonna have to figure something out. Sure I could post ahead, but the POINT of the other is to read my scriptures every day. And I like to do it in the morning over breakfast, but it took me an hour and half this morning between feeding the kids and husband, feeding myself, reading, figuring out what I was going to say, searching for music and pictures, and kids climbing all over me. (There was a LOT of that last one and it was getting on my nerves.)
This is my main problem with reading scriptures. I want to do it in peace. No distractions from kids. I could do it at night, but then it's not running through my head all day, and I like that. I could get up early.......(insert whiny voice) but it's so hard!! I don't want to get up at 6:30 if I don't have to!!
But I suppose my day would go better. What's half an hour, anyway? Half the time I'm awake anyway, but I just choose to go back to sleep. Maybe I should try it.
Because when I read my scriptures with the kids running around demanding my attention, I just get mad. At them, at myself for getting mad, at the fact that I have to read my scriptures everyday. Then I think, why bother? I'm not getting anything out of it but anger and resentment.
I'm definately reading with the right attitude. ( insert eyeroll)
Maybe I could read and write the post at night, and re-reading it in the morning would be enough of a refresher for me?
Hmm. Something I'll have to consider.
I'm VERY anxious to get back to real life. Pre-school, playgroup, babysitting, schedules......this lounging around every few days is really messing with me. Take today, for instance. I'm still lounging, and it's not a lounge day. I should be cleaning, getting myself ready, feeding the dogs instead of cat-napping during Dora while the kids eat goldfish and m&ms for a mid-morning snack.
See, very confused.
I suppose I should get off the computer and do something about all that.
Okay. I think I'm done.
And for your random music -- it's on my player. For the first few days after Christmas, I was sad that all the Christmas was going to go away. By Monday, however, I was done. Ready for my regular stuff. And it's already making me happy.
I've heard Unwritten, All this beauty, Far Away, Ever the Same, David Cook's Eleanor Rigby, Breakfast at Tiffany's, Chasing Pavements, Where I Stood, Mercy and my newest addition, Flightless Bird by Iron & Wine --> it's the song that Edward and Bella dance to at the end of Twilight.
