–The fact that I get really bad cold sores after being in the sun has not changed.
–I love how when Dave smiles he gets this vein that pops up down the center of his forehead.
–Getting a 24-hour urine sample from a four-year-old is no walk in the park. (Sorry if that’s too graphic, but wow, that has engulfed my week.)
–Instructions for 24-hour urine samples are enough to put me over the edge. Especially when you mix them with the instructions for a simultaneous other test you’re supposed to get your four-year-old to cooperate with. (Again, I know, too much information.)
–Lucy’s new doctor has got to be so darn sick of me calling asking nit-picky details on how in the world I’m supposed to do these tests.
–Lucy’s veins are still so darn tiny it is extra tricky (and takes forever) to get blood drawn from them.
–Don’t plan to get to a hair appointment a half-hour after a blood draw for that girl. You’ll never make it.
–If you decide to do an at-home hair-color kit in desperation after missing a hair appointment, don’t leave it on your hair for 30 minutes while talking to fellow Young Women leaders. It will result in jet-black hair.
–I need to make the Yogurt Chicken Masala recipe from my new beloved “Keeping Up Cookbook” again in the future. It was a hit.
–Pre-schoolers are fun to do art projects with. I love Art Masterpiece.
–It is priceless to have a park right around the corner.
–I need to get to the park with my children more often.
–The Young Women in our ward can pull off anything. New Beginnings was last night and man alive, those girls were awesome. Even though we were all a little worried a half-hour before it began, in the back of my heart I always knew they’d be able to pull it off beautifully. And they did.
–Having a “board” of amazing women to work with in the Young Women is priceless. I love these women with all my heart.
–It is tough to be “present” when life is crazy. But I’m so glad my kids and Dave help remind me of that over and over.
–Just because one “big thing” or event is over doesn’t mean you can stop and take a breather. Another “big thing” is always right around the corner.
–My laundry room may never be fully organized.
–I love listening to Dave explain the scriptures to our children.
–The desert is about the worst place in the world for allergies. We are all sneezing and sniffling like nobody’s business.
–We have a negligent tooth fairy. She hasn’t come in three months. Yep, that’s not a typo. Three months.
–It really is almost Valentine’s Day even though it seems like it was just Christmas yesterday.
