Totally Exciting List of Things Lauren Did This Weekend...
- Painted the living room - the same color. It kinda sucks because no one (including my husband) really will notice, but I did get rid of the many nail holes and smudge marks that were driving me crazy.
- Hemmed and hung new curtains in the living room. We've really had none the past year and our living room was a total fishbowl.
- Finished Natalie's baby scrapbook, chronicling the first year. I already am anticipating the next kids' book is going to be a slide-the-pictures-in-the-slots album. I mean, I aspire for more, but shall I just be honest with myself???
- I got started on painting some furniture I bought for Natalie (a little table and chairs). Granted it's not done, but I started.
I HATE painting. So these projects are ones that I've been putting off for some time.
What do you put off???
So if you're still with me and not asleep about my to-do lists... yeah for you! I'll switch gears now and get some of you fired up and may lose the rest.
What do you think about the end of the world?
Do you think it's coming? Do you think it will happen in our lifetime? Do you WANT to think about it? I don't. I try not to. I'd rather just not think about it and live my life now because, seriously, what am I going to do about it? I mean if something happens where the whole world goes to war and is obliterated by nukes, then what good is it really going to do me to think/worry/fret about that now?
And if you're a Christian, what do you think about this? This has come under recent scrutiny in our house. Do you think it's a sign of the world government in which the anti-Christ will rise up? I don't like these discussions. I feel like some things are just inevitable. And if I'm alive to see them, then I'll deal with them as they come. But surmising whether something IS a sign or ISN'T a sign is just that to me... surmising. I know that seems to some like just "sticking your head in the sand" but maybe that's just how I deal with the thought of potential death, destruction and mayhem.
How do you deal with stuff like this???
So I'll leave you with a few pictures of Natalie and me this weekend. While I feel like I'm constantly attempting to keep her from killing herself (falling down the stairs, grabbing knives out of the dishwasher, flushing herself down the toilet, etc), this is a really fun age.
Here's a picture of Natalie "reading" Good Night Moon...upside down. She's SO serious sometimes.
