Slow Down

What a beautiful day!

I was so pleased with the weather today, we're not even going to talk about the silly winter temperatures and snow that are supposed to come back on Wednesday.

Today was nice enough for me to take Jake, the sweet baby boy that I nanny, for a walk today. First of all, jogging strollers are amazing! I love his stroller, it was so easy to push and to get around! I am going to have to search the thrift shops for one of those for our baby. We had a nice 25 minute walk around his neighborhood. In just the short time that we walked we found three parks! Tomorrow I plan to dress better for the weather so that we can enjoy one of these parks for a little bit longer.

Sense I wrote early yesterday I'll have to catch up on what happened the rest of the day. We made it to church, there was a guest speaker. I have never been a fan of any of the guest speakers that I have heard at a church. So, I was pleasantly surprised when I not only liked our guest speaker, but loved him! Once the sermon is on the church website I plan to share it with you all. If you have an extra hour I encourage you all to listen to it, there's no way that I can even begin to describe how wonderful the sermon was.

When we got home I was finally able to appease my desire for pancakes, I had wanted to make them for three days and finally did! After the pancakes the real cooking began. I had this great idea that I wanted to make two meals yesterday so I wouldn't have to cook as often this week. It all worked out fine, I made lasagna and beef stroganoff, both were very good. However, I learned a lesson: slow down. When Tim realized how warn out I was getting from being on my feet cooking all day he came into the kitchen and informed me that he is really capable of taking care of himself sometimes. That I didn't need to worry about his dinners all of the time. Little does he know that I know that his idea of fending for himself does not quite meet the nutritional guidelines that it should. Never the less, he was very insistent that I stopped what I was doing to listen to him. He informed me that I was going to need to slow down and he held my stomach as he said this. Do you think he was trying to tell me that at some point in the near future that being seven months pregnant might keep me from moving as quickly as I want to? Not only that but soon my hands will be busy taking care of a baby? Not only will I need to slow down but I am now realizing that I would have had more time to spend with Tim had I not been so concerned about meals. He mentioned that I would be upset today because I miss him and he is right. So, even if he has to eat a sandwich for dinner sometimes that's ok. The time that I get to spend with him is few and far between so I need to take advantage of it.

Other than a walk with Jake, my day was relatively uneventful. This evening I will make fried rice for Tim and I to have for dinner tomorrow. I think I will also work on finalizing the address list for our baby shower that is in one month and two days! Other than that, it should be a relatively relaxing evening, just right.
