Shower thoughts...

Do you do a lot of your thinking in the shower?

Well, I do!

It's where I think about my problems, my upcoming plans, finances, and sometimes, I just sob like a baby! I'm hoping to start posing more of my shower thoughts and make them somewhat of a regular post! Here's my first one!

1. We’ve been having abnormally warm weather for January. In fact, we really haven’t had much of a winter yet. There are pros and cons to this…I’m loving the warm temps and not having to worry about driving in snow. Yet, there are so many viruses and sickies going around – we really need a few weeks of super cold weather to kill all the germs!

2. Almost every morning, I spend 20+ minutes trying to wake B – it almost always starts my day off on the wrong foot. I’ve toyed with the idea of just letting him sleep and be late, but I don’t want him to be late every morning. What’s a girl to do?! Please-oh-please, dear hubby, wake up!

3. My family has become obsessed with eating clementines. We are loading up on the vitamin C – seriously, Annie Louise ate 3 of them for breakfast…and I think she would have eaten the entire box if we would have let her!

4. I'm debating on whether or not to send Annie Louise to an additional church preschool in the fall. Right now, she goes to a Tuesday/Thursday program from 8-2:15. I’m considering adding a Monday/Wednesday program that’s also 8-2:15. She’ll be nearly 2 at that point…is 4 days a week too much for a 2-year old? She loves going to school so much, and she’s learning a TON, I just don’t want to over-do it.

5. I tweeted this, but it really really bothers me when people don’t get stationEry/stationAry right.

Stationery = writing paper, writing materials (including notepads, pens, pencils, etc)

Stationary = standing still, not moving

I witnessed a large paper-producing company (hello, they should definitely know the difference) say their “stationary products” were on sale.

Oh, the horror!!!!!!

6. We are going through a bunch of stuff involving our house – a lot of unknowns and scary situations that I don’t like to think about. If you get a chance, please pray that we’ll see clear direction as to all the details.

7. I have started a weekly habit of painting my nails on Sunday night. I usually pick up a new color on Saturday, and I have LOVED painting my nails each week – the only problem is that now I have a bunch of nail polish! I wish they sold like a “sample” size or something like that….anyone want to have a polish swap?

8. B and I get asked this question a lot “so, when are you going to have #2?” While I used to think I wanted our children to be really close in age, I really can’t see myself getting pregnant anytime soon. I can’t imagine doing everything I do right now + being pregnant/having an infant. Now, God might surprise us at any moment, and I’m okay with that, but I am just feeling a lot of pressure to have #2. Am I a bad person for feeling like I want to wait?

9. I have started planning Annie Louise’s 2nd birthday party….wait, should I tell you it’s not until September?!? Am I crazy or what? I definitely have a theme down, now I’m in full-on planning mode!

If you have your own shower thoughts post, leave me a comment so I can read them!

Have a great Wednesday, y'all!
