Lent 2013

I keep getting asked what I'm "giving up" for Lent this year. Well, considering that yesterday was Ash Wednesday (see Wordless Wednesday with Julia's ashes!), I guess I need to really nail down what exactly I'm doing this year and get on it! I don't think I'll be giving anything up, per-se, but I will be trying to do a little something extra. Normally, I share what I've decided to take on, but this year...I think I'm going to keep it quiet. I'm really starting to work on me. Work on being more positive (especially when the kids wake up at 6 am), work on being a better friend, a better mother, a better Catholic (as stated in my What to Expect from ME in 2013 post)... So I guess you can say I'm just going to roll all of that into one big ball of Lenten joy! I know I haven't done all that great with keeping up on my day-specific blogs, but we're selling our house, and things have been kind of crazy thus far. If I can get the kids to sleep just a wee bit longer in the mornings, I should be able to take on those posts much more freely. :-)

We had a bit of a scare with baby girl Tuesday night. I was having some pretty moderate contractions for about an hour and a half, so the doctor had me come in just to be safe. She sounds fine, and I'm not dilating any yet, so that's good. This baby needs to cook for at least 5 more weeks!!! I took it as a smack across my head to chill out and not get so stressed about everything.

Anyways. Justin is upstairs making all kinds of racket in his crib again, so I must get him up and snuggle him before he wakes Julia up!

Oh, here's a picture for good measure. :-)

Keep your eyes peeled for an update on my Project 52 blog as well. I'm falling a couple of weeks behind on that one, too!

God bless!

Cute kids! Good luck on getting kids to sleep longer. I cannot get more than 4 hrs of sleep at a time before one of the kiddos wake up. If you figure something out, let me know!
