The Simple Woman's Daybook

For Today (November 15, 2011)


Outside my window...
Sunny and 70 degrees

I am thinking... our life is about to change again. Move #3 since Enlistment #1!

I am thankful for... a 23-month old toddler (today) and three and a half year marriage (tomorrow).

From the kitchen... an organized disorganized mess. I'm separating the liquids and opened items that I know for sure the movers will not pack tomorrow.

I am wearing... blouse and capris

I am going... to uproot my tomato plant today :( I'm sad the tomatoes never ripened in time before our move but it's good to know I can grow a plant.

I am reading... nothing at the moment.

I am hoping... to get better sleep tonight. Since Sunday evening, I've had restless sleep where my brain just won't shut down. I think I'm just a liiiiiitle bit stressed out about the move.

I am hearing... Nathaniel playing with a ball.

Around the house... packed suitcases. Operation Live Out of a Suitcase started yesterday.

One of my favorite things... OTC analgesics that takes care of cramps and backache.

Inspired by our wedding song... The Way I Am

"If you were falling, then I would catch you.
You need a light, I'd find a match.
Cause I love the way you say good morning.
And you take me the way I am.

If you are chilly, here take my sweater.
Your head is aching, I'll make it better.
Cause I love the way you call me baby.
And you take me the way I am.

I'd buy you Rogaine when you start losing all your hair.
Sew on patches to all you tear.
Cause I love you more than I could ever promise.
And you take me the way I am.
You take me the way I am.
You take me the way I am."

A few plans for the rest of the week...
  • TMO packs our house tomorrow
  • Half year wedding anniversary tomorrow (3.5 years)
  • Clean the house, final house inspection and return the keys on Thursday
  • Hubby's graduation on Friday then drive straight to Carthage, MO
  • Spend a week in Missouri
Here is a picture I am sharing... 11.08.11 What a beautiful face.
