Chip and I got to go on an impromptu date night last night!!! It was so exciting. I got a call from my mom. She said, “come over for dinner!” Then she added “Orrrrrr, we can take our grand babies to pizza and you and Chip can go on a date!” Of course, I took the second offer.
I’m making some Kombucha right now (the water is warming) my two older kids are playing at a neighbor’s house and my littlest is having her “special day” with my mom! I’m sitting here wondering how I actually have some quiet time right now??
I stood at the stove yesterday, heating up water, dumping my usual 1 cup of sugar in to melt and adding the 11 tea bags to make my homemade Kombucha and I then I realized. I’m at my stove EVERY.SINGLE.DAY making Kombucha!!
Welcome to my next installment of “You’re better than that.” If you remember, this was the phrase my amazing friend used with me, when I asked her for advice. I love it, because first of all, not too many friends are willing to say that kind of honesty to a friend. Which is mostly because we (the friend) aren’t willing to take it.
We are still in the thick of organizing our life in our new home!
It was a little like Christmas going through all my kitchen boxes and putting up our King size bed (oh how I missed my Cal King!!) We packed up a bunch of toys before we moved, so the kids are loving going through their old toys, they are like new again!!
It’s been almost three years since we moved our family back to CA. Malina was 13 months old. Jackson was just 4 and Cana was in Kindergarten. The 5 of us moved into my parents house. Humbled and Hopeful. We put 80% of our life in a storage unit. All the material things that we thought were super important, we put them away.
