What I Learned in February

Pursuing Community is Worth It. Lice = Lame. I passed my glucose tolerance test. Nesting is so real. I'm a Moody Sisters fangirl.

Pursing community is worth it. Have I mentioned that I'm tired? My body tries to shut down at 4 p.m. every day, right as after-school activities are ramping up. And for some reason these kids want to eat dinner every night. So when an opportunity to get together with people comes up, I'm always tempted to skip and take a nap instead. But I'm persevering with a few activities this spring, namely a women's Bible study on Wednesday nights. I never feel like going, but I'm always glad I did. By the end of the night, I have gotten a better understanding of God's word and been able to connect with other ladies.

I also made the effort this week to go to a newly formed book club hosted by our post-adopt agency. I went without terribly high hopes but left extremely encouraged. The other two mamas who came told stories of their homes that exactly mirror the weird challenges in my own. I had been feeling deeply discouraged and alone in dealing with some of our kids' difficult behaviors, but after this meeting I walked away with lifted spirits and contact info for two like-hearted mamas. God is so kind to not leave us alone.

Lice = Lame. One of my sweet darlings brought home a case of lice from school. I knew we couldn't escape it forever...but I sure wish we could! Combing, laundry, combing, vacuuming, combing, spraying everyone's hair with something that advertises keeping lice away, combing. My washing machine is tired, and so am I. I reallyreally hope we are in the clear. I want my throw pillows back.

I passed my glucose tolerance test. And celebrated with a slurpee from 7-Eleven. Because baby wants those things all the time.

Nesting is so real. There is not one corner of my house that has escaped my nesting-fueled purging energy. On Saturday, my husband found me in our closet. "I'm cleaning out and organizing our hangers. It was driving me crazy." He laughed, kissed me on the cheek, and left to do something not (essentially) worthless. But our closet looks undeniably neater without those rogue hangers.

I'm a Moody Sisters fangirl. I've purchased a few things from this small business over the years, but this month I took advantage of a sale and bought a few face products to try. Y'all. For the first time in so many years, my new breakouts have dropped to almost zero. This is big news, as my skin always looks like it completely forgot that I'm turning 30, not 13, this year. #moodysistersforever
