Today I’m blogging just because I said ill blog.  So obviously I will not be blogging every day but at least I get to do this once a week.  Today is my day off…yes, no volunteering at the school, no washing or ironing, just get to do what I want.  I chose to spend it sorting out my linen closet and bagging winter blankets and extra bedding.  I feel all proud of myself.  I would like to see if I can tackle the baby’s drawers and make some of my famous mac and cheese for dinner.  We’ll see if I can fit it all in.  I feel very thankful and blessed for my great life; I get to choose what it is I do and how I will fill my time.  Also today is day 2 of my 2 day cleanse and I have not eaten a thing today (granted it is only 10:18 and I am doing mac and cheese for dinner).  I am focused and sweat is dripping down my back from all the hard work I’m doing today.  Proud momma indeed! Still have to find Ky’s missing library book L

So its day 2 and I came back…As I am sitting there feeding my 9 month old I’m contemplating my contribution to the household.  My brain tells me that I am having such a positive impact on my children’s lives and on our health and wellbeing.  For sure my own wellbeing!  J is eating his pureed papaya and vegetable breakfast and I feel extremely proud, as a working mom he would have had store bought rice serial every morning (Not that there is anything wrong with store bought stuff – but would you like to eat the same thing every day?).  Anyway, it makes me feel good to know his little body is well nourished.  This morning when I was thinking about the blog, it was hard to decide what I will be writing about today and I had so many things I could not choose.  Now that I finally am doing it, it’s all gone.  I think I will stick to what we conjured up for Teacher’s day.

I found a lemon loaf on pinterest and it looked fabulous. Ky and I made 2.  One for the teacher and one for the family.  Be warned, with 2 cups of butter and 8 eggs, there is no doubt in my mind that this cake could kill you slowly.  It did come out delicious and half of our loaf was shared with our two lovely retired teacher neighbors.  It is so worth the time.

So it’s true, everyone does have a blog and I have been sucked in too.  I don’t know exactly what it is that I will be blogging about, since I am doing this not to seem crazy when I’m thinking out loud to myself.  I need to make sense of these thoughts I am having.  Don’t get me wrong, there is nothing wrong with my life!  In fact I think it is the kind of life that most people would puke about.  It is pretty near perfect.  The loving husband, 2 beautiful kids, a stunning home. Perfect!  Here’s the deal; I recently quit the “professional” scene for home life with honey and the kids.  All of my friends said that I would not be able to do it, that I would get bored and go crazy, and be back to work within a month.  Boy did I show them…It has been 2 ½ months now and I am actually loving it! Well since it is my first post I will keep it short and go and figure out what my Kindergartener and I am going to be doing for his teachers for tomorrow’s teacher’s day.
