Simple Woman's Day Book - Week 7

Outside my window... It will hopefully warm up soon and turn to spring, I'm so done with this!

I am thinking... That there must be something I've been eating recently that's upsetting Ruthie's tummy.

I am thankful for... My cousins who live close by.

I am wearing... Jeans, gray nursing tank and brown hoodie.

I am remembering... How Dave proposed to me 7 years ago. <3

I am going... To be giving up the internet for lent. Feb. 17 - April 3. Don't miss me too much!

I am currently reading... Discipline Without Distress bu Judy Arnall (still slowly plugging away) AND Pregnancy, Childbirth and the Newborn by Simkin, Whalley, and Keppler. I also just finished Ina May's Guide to Childbirth by Ina May Gaskin.

I am hoping... That my time away from the internet is refreshing and productive.

On my mind... All of the things I need to do while I'm "away".

Noticing that... I get a lot more done and am in a better mood when I'm NOT online all day.

Pondering these words... Psalm 91:1 "He that dwelleth in the secret place of the most high shall abide under the shadow of the Almighty."

From the kitchen... We will be making pizza with Ashley this evening!

Around the house... It's a mess! I need to clean up asap!

One of my favorite things... Getting a massage this afternoon!

From my picture journal... Dave, the great multi-tasker. Playing video games online AND parenting.

Ina May's Guide is my favorite birth book, hands down. The birth stories in the first half are just so wonderful, so empowering! I remember sitting in the bathtub at 41 1/2 weeks pregnant, thumbing through it for the hundreth time while (not-so) patiently waiting for my little Myles to decide to finally get here. What a great book!
I'm chipping away at the Simken right now, too...we'll have to compare notes, post-Lent. I'm sure that we'll both get some decent reading done, with out the internet! I'll be taking a DONA course the week after Easter, and I'm really excited to be able to finish the required reading before then!
