I feel it in my bones...

I love this feature (...) I use it all the time.

I feel spring is coming. Somehow, my body senses that it is right around the corner. I have started to get more done and feel capable of actually accomplishing what I am supposed to do during the day. It's been November since I felt that way. I feel that yesterday with Paige and Heather helping me that it jumpstarted my system. Thanks again, girls. There is so much that needs to be done before our supposed move to Jackson (we're not %100 yet) that I think I've felt overwhelmed about getting it all done. There are clothes to get rid of from the boys, toys to go through and purge, and general crap to discard. I think I'm ready to get started with that stuff.

Felix is nearly potty-trained. Woo hoo! He has been able to pee on demand for a while now and I've felt guilty that I haven't started training him. So, last week I just slapped some underwear on him and left the house. That's the only way the I can get started: making myself take him potty ALL the time. He has only had one accident. I think it's because he doesn't like to be messy. No poopoo on the potty yet, but he brings me a diaper and says "I go poopoo now". This is okay with me for now. We'll worry about poopoo on the potty when he feels more comfortable, or when I run out of diapers.

Silas is excited that he no longer has to wear Pull-ups anymore! He has always been a hard sleeper and has never been able to wake up to go to the bathroom, but recently has been able to wake up and go. I'm glad to not spend that extra money. Felix wakes up dry pretty much everyday so we may not have to do Pull-ups for him. Crossing my fingers.

We got a recent report on Rebecca and baby Jonathan. Everything looks good so far and his vitals are normal. He is on oxygen, but the doctors say that is normal for him being so early. Rebecca is recovering well. I'm so thankful that he is doing well.

I love Tuesdays and today is gorgeous!

I have a new hair cut! Sorry it's off the subject but I'm so excited. And the report on Rebecca made me smile and cry at the same time! Yay!

I like ....... too. Only three ... are necessary, but I like more. I also use ??? alot. It makes the sentence more interesting without using more words. I'm in spring cleaning mode now too. I can see the light at the end of the winter tunnel.

Glad to hear it, I hope it spreads in time for the church clean up day Saturday!
Shameless plug!

In response to your comment... :)

This week, while grocery shopping, I bought "Crusty French Bread". Now that may not seem significant except that I ALWAYS buy rosemary and herb bread, which is not labeld crusty french.

Also, I have a big pack of chicken and was just thinking I've got more food than we'll use this week. Those two things may seem coincedental except that I don't believe in coincedences.

It's one of those things that makes me (at least), feel like God spoke directly to me.
How cool. Thank you.
