How Come I'm Not Blogging Very Much?

Oh, 'cause I don't have much to say. Here's my exciting day so far:

Got up and swam at 6:00 a.m. By the way, this is my new thing. Since last December when all the stress started really rolling in, my sleep has just been shot, sliced to ribbons. I can't sleep at night and I can't wake up in the morning. So, right after turning 40, I joined the swimclub and I get up early and swim laps for 30 minutes. Guess what? I feel better. I'm tired at night, and I wake up just fine in the morning. I feel less stressed out too. So...yay for swimming.

Then I made banana-blueberry bread.

Now I sort of have the girls playing peacefully in their room (actually, Elaine is sitting in the guestroom, reflecting on her bad behavior for a few moments) while I clean the kitchen--you know, when you open up all the cupboards and throw stuff out and clean the pantry and the refrigerator and all that good stuff (It should take me about three weeks)--and listen to James MacDonald on my laptop. (His quote of the day so far? "Absolute truth in the hands of absolute sinners can be absolutely brutal." Yup.)

So there you go, those are basically my days. Sometimes I mix it up and make a different kind of bread while doing the laundry and listening to Beth Moore instead. It's been a nice sort of break!

Great that you are enjoying swimming. It's a way of getting in exercise without you really knowing that's what you're doing.

Do you swim at the Y? The one thing I wanted to do while I've been pregnant is to swim, but I've not done it yet! Maybe after???

I'm glad you are finally getting more sleep! :-)

I do love your comments about Elaine and all the things she gets into and thinks up. It makes me laugh and it brightens my day.

Even though you think your days may be
"all the same", we love hearing about them.
