we’ve had a crazy three weeks around here. my mom and a friend came to visit for two weeks (!!), which was sooo good for me. we did some traveling to kyoto and tokyo, and i did a fair amount of walking that my pregnant body just wasn’t used to. then last week, we spent five days away from home, traveling as a family to utsunomiya to visit staff friends, pray, and ask questions about how we would fit into the ministry there, should God lead us to go. of course, we made an overnight stop in tokyo to stay with the ebbers, which is always full of food, laughter, and GOOD conversation. i stayed up waaay later than usual, though, which is typical for our time with them. 🙂 it was all good until little J decided to have a few five-star fits whilst in utsu that just drained whatever i had left from my mom’s visit. i’m wiped. and happy to be home. this week, i plan to live a normal, slow-paced life around the neighborhood — taking as many slow walks with J as possible, visiting the neighborhood parsk and letting him look at all the little bugs and grassblades as long as he wants. other things on the list:
-take a good look at my pantry and little upright deep freeze and see if i can get two-weeks worth of meals out of their contents. should be fun and interesting. we’ll see how far we can get with just purchasing produce, eggs, and milk!
-clean out the dining room cabinet and DUST IT. hasn’t been done since we moved here (yikes!) — and contemplating a possible move of dish items to the cabinet.
-fold laundry and put it away before it sits for a week.
-snuggle with my little dude and enjoy him as he enjoys being home.
-keep the evenings free to hang with hubs.
what are YOU doing this week??
