7 Quick Takes (Vol 5)

--- 1 ---

I'm almost a regular blogger this week! Woo! Go me! I really love blogging, but sometimes I feel like I don't have anything interesting to say. But, I've realized after reading various of my favorite blogs, that I'm never going to be as awesome and funny as Dwija, Cari, and Grace, but I'm not writing for fans. (ha! Fans!) But I write because I enjoy it. :)

I don't do hyperlinks very often, and even though I looked at it like 20 times, I'm still afraid that I put the wrong links with the wrong names.

It snowed this morning some time. I am so excited! It's not like snow all over the roads type snow, but it's pretty and nice.

I'm ready for more babies!!! We are not struggling with infertility (I don't think), we don't practice NFP for avoiding or conceiving, so trying to just "let go" is really hard. We got pregnant with the boys really easily, and quickly, so we expected that would happen again. I know that God's time is perfect...but boy do I have baby fever!

Speaking of babies...Dominic has been saying "want baby" and then hugging Christopher or this morning, kissing him! It is so adorable. He even woke in the middle of the night the other night, and was crying so hard, and when I came to him he said "want baby, baby baby" with his arms held out. I guess he was having a nightmare. It was cute. Even the screams and the cries.

I am seriously so ready for the election to be over. I get a ridiculous amount of calls and mail. Holy cow, the mail I get. For a party that espouses being more green, I'll say that the Democrats in Colorado sure waste a lot of trees to send out giant postcards.

Which leads me to my last quick take. I am so done with people talking about birth control being healthcare and about how women "deserve" to receive it. I even responded to an annoying tweet from Bill Maher last night (no, I didn't get a response) that someone in my feed had retweeted. Seriously, how is it possible that this is what the democratic process in the "greatest country in the world" comes to?! How sad. Just, sad.

  1. I think everyone is ready for this election to be over. And you put all the names with the right links ;)

  2. I love these Quick Takes! I could have written the first two myself!

  3. I read your post the other, love, love your potential Christmas Card photo! ;-)

  4. Woohoo! Every once in a while I get things right! :)

  5. Yay for being a regular blogger this week! You are doing way better than me. However, you motivated me to blog, and I did! I love hearing how your boys are getting along. I'm still trying to get mine to really learn that they can play with each other without mama. Sometimes it works sometimes it doesn't. And yes, with the election, can the junk mail stop already. I look everything up online about the lesser candidates anyway.
