Simple Woman's Day Book - Week 5

Outside my window... It's still white.

I am thinking... Yeast and I don't seem to get along well. Yesterday the cinnamon bun dough wouldn't rise, and today my pizza dough. D'oh! (I tried different yeast too)

I am thankful for... How cute my babies are. I think God gave me cute babies so I don't kill them when they cry incessantly (just kidding, of course).

I am wearing... Gray yoga pants, gray nursing tank and a navy Roxy hoodie.

I am remembering... How wonderful it was getting 6 straight hours of sleep the other night! The baby hammock rocks.

I am going... To become a doula! For realz!

I am currently reading... Discipline Without Distress by Judy Arnall. I read ONE chapter this week!

I am hoping... uptoten.com continues to occupy my kids this evening so they will stay out of my hair as I attempt to get this pizza made!

On my mind... The future, like where our family is headed. Or where I'd like to be headed.

Noticing that... Skype is such a great way for the kids to keep in touch with Grandma! So much better than the phone.

Pondering these words... "No. A glimpse is not a vision. But to a man on a mountain road at night, a glimpse of the next 3 feet of road may matter more than a vision of the horizon." - C.S. Lewis

From the kitchen... FAIL.

Around the house... Puzzle pieces, crayons, and random bits from making Valentines this morning. Oh, and flour.

One of my favorite things... Having friends over!

From my picture journal... Ashley rocking the sling.

I'm going to become a doula, too! I'm slowing chipping away at DONA's required reading list...I hope to take their certification course this spring/summer. :)

I also would really like to become a doula. Okay, I really want to become a midwife. It's a dream for another day though.

How'd that pizza turn out?

my littles like uptoten as well. But haven't been playing it lately...thanks for the reminder

Emily - I'm working on the reading list right now too! I'm going to take the course in May.

Grace - The pizza was really good! Judith ate half a pizza (like, a large-sized one!) herself, which is crazy because she's so picky and usually barely touches her supper. BUT, I have to admit that there may have been some swearing and unnecessary banging of utensils before I FINALLY got the dough to cooperate.
