…enjoying the spring rain. We’ve had tons of it here, though we’re still not back up to non-drought stage.
…trying to help a dear friend who doesn’t want my help. I think the hardest part of friendship is realizing that you’re much more invested than the other person is. Nothing like a few “let me call you”s and “we’ll see”s to make you feel needed.
…doing my taxes. (Done! Come ooooon, return!)
…nursing my son through the delightful world of molars.
…grading piles of papers (Hey, Ink!) and trying not to look at all the ones that have yet to be done.
…laughing at Obama. (Come on, it’s me…)
…seriously considering giving up blogging. I find I’m more focused on my kids, husband, and work when I’m not brewing up a new blog post. Some recent acquisitions of lovely cloth-bound journals have been calling me to step away from the computer. And then churn some butter and salt down some venison.
…enjoying our bilingual church. Young and old, rich and poor, monolingual and poly, this place is what I visualize when I think “community”. And the tamales are great!
…attempting to explain to my 4-year-old what bunnies and eggs have to do with Jesus rising from the dead. (“Ohhh….now I get it, Mommy, the bunnies all came out of the tomb when the stone rolled back. And we have eggs ’cause bunnies lay eggs! Right? Right??”)
…wishing a 30-something mom can get away with rain boots and not look like I’m trying too hard.
