7 Quick Takes Friday (#2)
1. I have come to the conclusion that I am one of the most obscenely prideful and self-centered people I know... trying to work on that.
2. Staying home with Samwise gives me a lot more opportunity/time/energy to love my husband. I enjoy being able to prepare dinner, take care of the home, do laundry, etc. I've always been very domestic, and no, it doesn't make me feel like a slave. I always feel very whole and happy when I've had a very successful day at home.
3. I am contemplating cloth diapers. The progress they've made on those things is ridiculous! It would be a very expensive initial investment... but since some of these companies promise a 3 year life, it would pay off in the long run. Especially since they could be used for more than one child.
4. Jeremy and I watched Smokey and the Bandit last night, and I decided that a former co-worker was just like Jackie Gleason. It made me spitefully happy... until I realized that it goes hand-in-hand with #1.
5. I love early mornings, but I don't like getting up early. Does that sound nuts? Once I'm up (especially if I can get a shower asap), I'm good. It's just the getting up that's hard. My son wakes up at 7:30, and it is my dream to start getting myself up at 6:00. I figure that means I could have up to 1.5 hours for myself before the days starts... shower, coffee, a little reading and prayer. I think I would be a much happier, calmer, and more effective person. So... maybe tomorrow.
6. Samwise was doing soooo well at sleeping for several weeks. 9:30pm-7:30am with one feeding around 3 or 4. All of a sudden, he's up multiple times a night again. This too shall pass.
7. My (very Baptist) mother freaked out, at Samwise's baptism a few weekends ago, about the painting of Our Lady of Guadalupe that was hanging in the sanctuary. She urged me to ask the priest about the symbolisms in the painting-- something about horns and a man underneath. I looked at the painting more carefully and did some research online, then sent her an email explaining that it was a cresent moon and an angel, and told her about the symbolism. She was not satisfied with my research and insisted again that I ask the priest. ::sigh::
