I'm giving myself 5 minutes

5 minutes to write whatever comes to mind.  10:02. Go.

This morning, we took pictures of our house to get it on the market (it's been a slow process).  And by we, I mean, Drew took them and I went from room to room clearing it out before he got to it and then I went back and put everything back in its place.  So, what will be depicted in the pictures, will not be real life.  It will be what we would love for real life to look like except, not so much, because that means that we wouldn't have 4 little people in our lives or if we did, they would be robots or cats, maybe cats would make more sense and then they wouldn't be people, because they'd be cats.  You probably saw where I was going with that, didn't you.

Anyway.  The pictures were taken and we think the listing will go live Saturday.  Except maybe not because that was before Drew was taken out by some strawberries at dinner.  Or so he thinks.  He ate some strawberries for dinner.  I took Annika on a quick walk (that makes me sound cool and healthy except this was the first time it has ever happened and it was seriously a 5 minute walk, much like this blog post).  I came home and gave her a bath and started nursing her (which means I nursed her as long as she wanted and read blogs on the Ipad).  And then I kept hearing the boys laughing and talking loudly and kept wondering why he wasn't putting them to bed.  It was, after all, inching towards 9! Yikes, that's late for our kids.  Finally, I decided Ani was done nursing (which means, I read all the blogs that I wanted to) and I took her up to her bed.  And then I checked on Drew.  And quickly determined that I didn't want to be too close to him and then read the boys a Franklin book and 2 short chapters about Hudson Taylor from Hero Tales.  Google that.  It's a really neat book. 


To summarize, we took pictures, Drew got sick.  The end.

  4. I love your "timed" posts! They make me smile! :)

  5. I'm glad you gave yourself 5 minutes. Do it more often! :)

    Even if it takes 7 minutes.

  6. Okay so I probably haven't talked to you in person in like...years...but I so love your blog. For so many reasons! One that immediately comes to mind is that you don't just post your rosy times, you post real stuff. I'm single, and it's easy to think married people live these charmed lives or that it's all horrible (depending on who you talk to) but I think you do a good job of just...keepin it real. THANK YOU, for that, so much. =)

  7. Your blog posts always make me SMILE....really big!

  8. You sure covered a lot in 5 minutes! I would love to see the link when it goes live, so I can be in awe of what you did. I am already, but you know what I mean.


Comments make my day and bring a smile to my face, so thanks!
