Loving :: the nip in the air this evening and the promise of cooler weather to come.
Making :: eleanor field satchels and arcadian lunch totes. Also, in the food department, granola bars and cucumbers.
Drinking :: white wine. don’t hate.
Waiting :: for school to start people. it cannot come soon enough.
Wondering :: if the behavior of my 12 ear old is even close to normal. He wakes at noon, dines on pizza bagels only, and retires to watch The Office at any chance he gets.
Feeling :: a bit overwhelmed but also extremely excited. dream following is hard people, it is not for the faint of heart. but sticking with it seems to be paying off.
Enjoying :: the garden harvest. tomatoes are coming!
Worrying :: about whether I am the dumbest person I know? will I measure up? will I be invited to the party? I wake up each and every morning excited and rejuvenated. I go to bed wondering just who the hell I think I am ?!? unstable much?
Reading :: the ikea catalogue. it’s more of a visual read.
Playing :: rummikub. finally, a game I like. the kids hate it. of course.
Eating :: guacamole.
Dreaming :: of financial freedom. where mister witt and I spend our days together. He can push the grocery cart while I check the list …
Wondering :: what the back to school dinner theme will be this year. wondering when i will lose the kids in defining characteristics in which i think they should embody. any suggestions for going into 7th grade? i am starting to think about rolling dubies and serving 40’s … i know it’s extreme but it is not far off folks. How and when do you decide to share with their darling faces the harsh realities and super important choices that lie ahead. AGAIN, fail on the part of my pregnancy books that mentioned none. of. this. read about our wholesome dinners of school years past here & here & here.
Working :: on being a human being. all day every day.
Longing :: for mister witt. are you aware, that this world sets to pull us apart from the hours of 8am all the way until 5 0’clock at night? it is barbaric if you ask me and I simply will not stand for it very much longer. also, cozy fires.
Embracing :: the annoyance of having 4 people trying to talk all at once. it’s family. I love them. it’s family. if i didn’t have them it would be super quiet and that would be awful. right? the quiet? awful.
i love you all. xo
