I think I am the type of person who really thrives on being busy. Okay, it stresses me out to have too much going on, especially when it involves having to leave the house and drive somewhere. Something about having seven kids makes me really enjoy the stay at home pace versus the run around everywhere pace.
But we are not talking about that.
I am talking about how sometimes when I have too much on my plate I get motivated to actually get really busy. Crazy busy.
Case in point:
Well, I was motivated today. The pile of laundry made me get crazy busy and it is halfway done, folded and put away.
Speaking of having more on my plate, we drove to Powder Springs yesterday and put a down payment on our new family cow, Molly. Oh we are excited! We will pick her up in mid- April so today I sat down and ordered some of the supplies I would need to begin milking her. When she gets here you can bet she will be the subject of many posts, so I will title those posts " Adventures with Molly the Family Cow."
In fact, I am removing the "domestic Adoption" line from my header. It's not that we have given up BUT I feel silly having it on there when it could be forever before DFCS calls us with any child. Well, it feels like forever already. It has been more than a year since we first started the paperwork. We are still waiting, and waiting, and waiting for that "phone call."
The cow is going to be a lot of work, but I am looking forward to it very much. I have always wanted a Jersey milker and now that will be reality. I think all of the kids are excited as well, especially the younger group.
Today's cleaning spree has inspired me to take a hard look at my own closet and stash of clothing. Okay, perhaps the fact that I can barely walk into my closet helped inspire me some as well. I do not need all these clothes. I only need some essentials and a couple nice things, right?
What do you think are really necessary to own or not own in your wardrobe?
Have a fantastic weekend!
