Something Good 7/15

Happy Friday!

It’s been a little quiet around here the last week and a half. Miss P has had a rough time going to bed at night, so we’ve been doing lots of extra cuddles. I’ve got some great stuff on deck, but the baby cuddles have come first.

Happy Friday afternoon! We take time on Fridays to look back and remember the good this week.

I had a great post planned about how I finished my first 5k since P came along, how I managed to finish with a time comparable to what I had run before she was born, how I did it while pushing her in a stroller. But this morning, something even better happened.

We slept until 8am. Lately P has been getting up even earlier than I wake for work, often between 5:00-5:30am. I’ve been so exhausted the last few weeks and it’s caused all sorts of problems. I work Saturday so I had today off and it was so nice to slowly wake up to her chatting away in her crib with the sun fully out. No alarms, no pre-dawn rushing around or trying to get a baby back to sleep. The whole day has been great. I have more energy, I don’t fall asleep while driving and I don’t drift off in the middle of a conversation.

It’s the small things in life that we need to celebrate.

Hello, Friday! We take some time each Friday and celebrate the good this week!

It’s been super hot here in Michigan this week. We seemed to have skipped spring all together, going from 50F to 90F within a week’s time! The weather was great this past weekend and we got to take P to her first baseball game! She wasn’t very impressed with the game itself, but highly approved of the fireworks afterwards. Jeff remarked that it was the longest he’d ever seen her pay attention to one thing. We went to the game with a group of 30+ extended family members and took over a good portion of the lawn seating. It was a blast!

Something Good 6/3

Happy Friday! We take time at the end of each week to reflect on the good things (big and small!) in our life.

Our very lovable Doberman hurt her leg on Memorial Day and spent the day in a considerable amount of pain. Not even treats or food could motivate her to move across the house.  We spoiled her overnight until Jeff could take her to the vet on Tuesday morning. $200, one x-ray and two bottles of pills later we had a very drugged dog. She laid around and cried most of Tuesday, too. But last night as I came home from from work, she was waiting at the top of the stairs wagging her tail. It didn’t last long, she laid down and waited for me to make it up the stairs to pet her, but the meds are helping.  She still limps funny and she’ll still whimper a bit when she leaps up onto our bed. Dakota is a 9 year old dog with a puppy’s mindset, so I’m grateful that she’s healing quickly!

Hello Friday! We take time at the end of the week to celebrate the good and positive things (even if they’re small)!

Every summer, I tell myself that I’ll train to actually run a 5k race. Every summer, I don’t.  I’m resolving to make this summer different. I started on Sunday and have been training consistantly all week. I’m quite proud of this. I don’t expect to be able to run the 5k that is in three weeks – but I hope to better my time substantially.

I’ve promised myself some very pretty exercise gear if I can meet my goal this summer.

Imagine that, a New Year’s resolution… just five months (and a couple of years) late!

What’s good this week for you and yours?

Well, it’s been a week. It’s been a long week. Seems like I was just here writing about my crazy day last week.

This week, we’re so grateful for our friends and family who have supported us. All the kind words, cards and hugs have been much appreciated!

Something Good 5/13

Happy Friday! We take some time on Friday to reflect on what’s good and positive in our lives.

Taleah: I’ve had a pretty crazy 24hrs. In this time period, my husband put his golf club through our living room ceiling, Baby P was super fussy and somehow Jeff and I managed to walk straight into each other and knock our heads so hard that I still have a headache almost 24 hours later! I left for work without some important things and just been out of sorts all day long. (And it’s been exactly one year since I hit a cow while driving home and my car was totalled.)

But wait! you say. How is that something good?

You’re right. That’s all the bad stuff. Want to know the good thing? (Of course you do, otherwise you wouldn’t be reading… right?)

This morning when we woke up, Baby P looked up at me from her crib and smiled. Then she grabbed her toes and giggled. When I reached down to pick her up, she kicked her legs in delight. Even though I’ve had a crazy day, my daughter loves me. The day before is forgotten and it’s a new day to her. How wonderful!

Jeff didn’t give me anything so here’s his from me…

Jeff: I earned a 4.0 grade last quarter and received an invitation to a President’s Dinner!

Happy Friday! Today is when we take time to look back on our week and celebrate the good and positive things!

Taleah: Today is an official holiday, so I have the day off with pay! A four day workweek was very  much needed!

Jeff: I had a test in one of my classes, so I got to leave when it was done. I got out an hour early!

Happy Friday! We like to take time on Fridays to look back and remember the good and positive from our week.

Today is Tax Day! We’re cheering on behalf of all tax men everywhere (including mine)!

 

Taleah: P slept pretty well most of this week, so I’m finally catching up in the sleep deficit. Still not 100%, but I’ll take not falling asleep while standing up.

Jeff: Golf season started!

Baby P: This week, I found my toes! They’re quite fun to hang onto although it’d hard to chew a toy and grab them at the same time!

 

That’s it for us this week – what’s good for you?

Taleah: I was at the dentist’s office this week, and they like to tack inspirational posters to the ceiling to give you something to do while you sit there. One said “Spring isn’t spring until you hear the birds calling.” Isn’t that the truth? It’s still cold (although we’ve been promised that warmer weather is coming) but now when I pull out of my driveway before 7am – I’m ushered on my way by a cacophony of birds. It’s SO beautiful!

Jeff: (Taleah’s note: Jeff didn’t give me anything this week. Please feel free to harass him for doing so! 🙂 )
