The deal: Use our themes or use your own - just let us know what is 'currently' going on with you. Be sure to stop by and say hello to the other bloggers linking up - especially to my amazing co-host Randalin of Kale & Beans.
This week's themes:
growing, playing, singing, choosing, looking
Both my little kiddos have spent the first part of the year Growing like weeds. Otto is six foot three. Just kidding but this kid will be towering over me well before he starts junior high. Someday he will have an ironic, or maybe even not ironic, mustache and Loretta will ask me to pierce her ears and I will lay down and die right there on the spot or hopefully I will spontaneously do 100 burpies because I'll be so fit by then (and who are we kidding, the second Loretta asks for earrings I'll be hopping immediately in the hot rod with my girl and dashing away to the mall because how cool will that be?!?!). Evidence of said growth, Otto was not going for the crop top look...
We have all been Playing "soccer" in the back yard which is really this sort of croquet mixed with h-o-r-s-e mixed with tag game we invented that doesn't have many rules, uses every ball we own, and lasts about four minutes. I love sunshine.
Loretta has been Singing the Uptown Funk. When it comes on the radio she screams, "Hey it's our song!" Otto remains deeply enmeshed in a Weird Al obsession and got some smiles at the grocery store last night singing Trapped in the Drivethru to himself.
Last night after taekwondo we ran by the grocery (as mentioned) and Otto was Choosing a special treat. That's definitely not a regular thing so he was super excited. We picked out two flavors of Ben & Jerry's and took them home. When Loretta heard that she'd be having a little strawberry ice cream before bedtime she ran into the kitchen and yelled, "I can't believe it!" Smiles all around!
I'm Looking forward to a nice weekend with visiting loved ones and also to getting back on track and back to my "real" self. So as not to bore you all with breaking news that I'm sleepy and grumpy all winter long, I try to brush over just how paralyzing my "winter blues" can feel. It ebbs and flows but it's also super real and as the days get brighter I can feel my energy come back in a real way. I'm looking forward to being super productive this summer. It always feels better once I'm doing... it's just hard to get the momentum going between January and April because I'd rather frown and hybernate.
That was this week & here are next week's theme's:
trying, eating, wearing, going, making
