My little Emily loves to bake! Every chance we get to make daddy a cake, a box of brownies or cookies, we do. I have also been teaching her all of the ingredients in English and in Spanish. She is getting better at repeating the Spanish ingredients. I love it when she wakes me up and askes to bake something for daddy! She runs to the kitchen pulls out a chair and expects me to start whipping something up to bake. These are the moments that I will look back upon when she becomes older. These are the stories I want her to read to show her with some dedication and constant practice anything is possible. While I train minute to be a mini me, what are your little ones up to? 😜
I couldn’t have said this any better. Yes, I have to admit, sometime I wonder how others feel about my posts, but then I think….WHO CARES. It’s my way of venting, and if you don’t like it, then unfollow me. It’s just that easy.
With that said, please follow me and click the like if you like it 🙂
I know this is a touchy subject for a person in my household (my husband) but I have to know:
Why not pay attention to detail?
For instance, I came home and immediately started dinner. I go into my cabinet to get a 9 inch skillet and when I take it out I noticed that the pot is dirty. Normally I’m the one who is in charge of dishes, and by in charge, I mean putting them in the dishwasher. I know I am a Nazi when it comes to checking for clean dishes and to make sure everything is clean before it’s being put back into the cabinets. What I don’t understand is; how my husband can put a dirty skillet away without thinking “hmmmm let me put it back in the dishwasher or let me scrub it by hand.”
Another example: In the shower he would rather cut open a toothpaste tube instead of going into the closet to get a new one.
I’m not too sure why my husband chooses not to pay attention to detail. I find it rather unattractive. 😦
As for my last example–now that February is right around the corner, I’ve already purchased my Valentine’s Day card (over a week ago). How much would you want to bet that my husband will buy my Valentine’s Day card on 2/14/15. How much more would you bet that he’ll purchase it an hour before I come home and all he will do is sign it? I’m not saying that it can’t be purchased the day of, but at least put some words in it.
Look at your notebook; did you know that you are more likely to jot down thoughts if you LOVE the design of your notebook and enjoy the feel of your pen on the paper? So you know where I’m going with this…INVEST IN GOOD QUALITY PRODUCTS to keep you motivated!
P.S. I took this picture off the internet. I’ve never done drugs…I know…I tell people it’s my only V card! LOL
I read this in an article this past week and saved it. It comments the following:
“It’s easy to live like a mouse on a wheel: you go to work, you eat, you sleep, you go to work again, and so on, and then it’s the weekend. Make regular time to step off that wheel and reflect on your life”.
Today, spend a few minutes daydreaming on your commute to work. Don’t interrogate yourself during this downtime; simply let thoughts emerge and listen to what your innate wisdom is telling you.
I did just that today! I picked up my kid from the sitters and just relaxed on the ride home. No radio, no singing, no noisy toys. We really didn’t say much to each other either. Not only was it therapeutic, I got a lot of thinking done. Normally my thinking time is in the shower…I’ve must have been a mermaid in another life with all the time I spend showering (thinking).
I will need to incorporate this in my daily routine more often. Even if it’s for 3 minutes. Just like you de-clutter your house, work and life; you will really feel like your mind has been de-cluttered by giving it some love. I dare you to try it.
Well that’s my rant for tonight. Hope you guys have a great evening!
