Friend Makin Monday

It's time for Friend Makin' Monday at {aefilkins}! If you would like to join in, head on over to Amber's blog! It's a great way to make some new friends!

(I love me some surveys!)

The Simple Woma
n's Daybook

Outside my window... the world is dark, as it's after 10pm - though I see a street light casting a yellow glow through my window. I wonder if it's still raining cats and dogs.

I am thinking.... that I really need to use the little girls' room. I know, I know - TMI. But for reals, I've been holding it since 9:30, and like I said it's after 10pm (10:18 to be exact)...but I just couldn't pry myself from The Bachelor, and now the wonderful internet world.

I am thankful... for answered prayers (thank you, Jesus). For friends. For inspirational people who leave a mark on my heart, even if I've only seen them once, and sometimes never at all (there are so many wonderful friends I've *met* over the internet). And of course my family. My extended family, and my sweet little family here at home.

I am praying... for my family, always. For the people in my life. And for those in need of prayer. And for myself, to be a good wife and parent, and to be a better person, overall.

I am reading... facebook statuses(!), blogs, magazines, and What to Expect the First Year.

I am creating...memories. A home. A childhood. Love, love, love.

From the kitchen...please don't mingle too long in needs some organizing. The floor needs to be mopped. And I the husband needs to put out the mouse traps. Yes, we had an uninvited guest recently. And he/she ate Katie's baby spoons. And her oatmeal.

Around the house... really? Do I have to? Can you tell my home needs some cleaning? Where does the time go?

One of my favorite things... Children

A few plans for the rest of the week... finish Christmas shopping for the nephews. Idol. Cleaning. Laundry. Wrapping. Packing. Then heading to Maine this weekend to spend Christmas with part of my family. Visiting my nephews. Introducing Katie to people who haven't seen her yet. But first and foremost...the bathroom is screaming calling my name!

Hope you made it to the bathroom! :) I'm trying to watch the Bachelor online but it keeps kicking me off. Grrrrrr! Who do you think is going to win?
