Find The Time

Ever since our beautiful foster daughter moved in with us my life has been full of wonders. I love spending time with her, watching her grow and learn new things. One of those new things being seeing her first smile which was followed by lots more smiles and cooing. She has the most beautiful smile.

I love having a baby in the house again. My husband and kids adore her as well. We all feel really blessed to be a part of this little girl's life even if it only turns out to be for a few months of that life before she returns to her mom's care

We are so glad to have her if you can't tell. The only thing I have to complain about is loss time. All the time that I used to have a now don't because I spend so much of it taking care of her. I don't begrudge her this time, but I do miss my free time. I used to have time to write, exercise, sleep...you know the little extra joys life gives you.  I used to go to the gym everyday or at least go on a walk, but not so much anymore and my body is paying the price. I miss my gym time. I miss my writing time and I really miss my sleeping time.

I was once told that if something was important to me I would find the time to do it. The problem is I have a lot of things that are important to me and no matter how hard I try here isn't enough time in the day to get it all done.

So this is my question: If you only had one hour a day to do the one thing that was important to you what would it be?

It's Halloween Wednesday!

Today is the first Halloween Wednesday. The theme for the day is Witches and Wizards. My father in law has made all the grand kids wands and I made labels to go with them. I will post a picture in this blog of one of them. I am so excited. They are going to love them. My mother in law is making small bread bowls that we are going to use as cauldrons and serve soup in them(magic brew). We are also all bring bottles of different kinds of drinks that we plan to put in jars so the kids can mix and drink their own potions. There will be games, stories, crafts, ect. It should be so much fun!

I am however disappointed that I haven't had time to get my Halloween decorations out. Having a two month old has really slowed me down. It also hasn't helped that I've been sick with a stomach bug and then our refrigerator broke and we have been working on getting a new one all week. I am feeling better, we did get a new refrigerator, but I still have a beautiful two month old girl keeping me from really busting out my Halloween grove. The good news is my husband is taking the next two days off work for a little R&R so I should have some time to get things set up.
