As you come to him, the living Stone--rejected by men but chosen by God and precious to him--you also, like living stones, are being built into a spiritual house to be a holy priesthood, offering spiritual sacrifices acceptable to God through Jesus Christ. 1 Peter 2: 4-5

Procrastination, princesses, and perceptions

Procrastination is a problem in our house. In fact, you could say it runs rampant. Daryl got through graduate school (all three of his degrees) doing his assignments the night before, and sometimes the day that they were due. I am just as guilty. Laundry gets done when we have nothing else to wear. Lesson plans that have to be turned in at 8:00 on Monday morning? Yep, still writing them at 7:45. And I won't mention the fact that Josh's 18th birthday is in four days and we are still at that "What do you think we should get him? I don't know. What do you think?" stage.

So is it any surprise that Charlotte is soon to be 6 months old and we are just now (as in today) getting Charlotte's crib set up? OK, so her room isn't done. But she now has a little corner in Hannah's room...
and you see that little pink basket on the far right? She now has her own toy basket. How sad is it that all those other toys (plus three baskets you can't see because then I would have to show you the HUGE pile of laundry I still have to put away) are Hannah's and that little bitty basket is Charlotte's? Lucky for us, she gets just as much pleasure out of a plastic cup, a cell phone, or one of the dogs as a toy right now.

oh, and did you notice the unfinished window frames? Yep, we started on those when Hannah was 6 months old. I told you...procrastination abounds.
Our break has been filled with lots of sickness so far, and so we haven't ventured out much. Hannah's been her usual busy self, despite the fever and the stuffy nose, and she has been drawing and making "caffs." (i.e. crafts) Her latest creation is a picture of a "princess standing on a colorful rock."

And I'll leave you with a little Hannah funny. This girl just cracks me up sometimes. We were lounging around this morning, trying to wake up and get going. She looks at me and looks at Daryl and says, "Mommy, Daddy, can I be a wife? I want to be a wife. I want to dance and eat cake."

If only....

  1. Funny! Lucas asked me one time if Mimi and Pappy got married and "did the dancing." Kids are funny.
