From Rush To Hush And The Little Bits In Between

Today has been one of those days where I've felt like I've done everything and nothing at the same time.  I woke up early, packed a lunch for my husband and made breakfast for the little one... just like every other day.  Then before I knew it, it was 10:45 a.m. and I was rushing out the door, trying to make it to the gym in time for a quick workout before the "kidz club" closed for the afternoon.  So long, morning...

The afternoon brought lunch and a nap for Eli.  And by nap I mean a 30 minute snooze which was interrupted by a lovely little diaper surprise.  There was no going back down for my blue-eyed boy.  Thankfully, he remained happy and content for the rest of the afternoon, allowing Mommy some time for crafting :)

My brother-in-law has been working on starting up his own clothing company.  I am so proud of him and I have no doubts that he will be successful if he keeps at it.  Anywho... he asked me to throw around some ideas for hand-made tags to go on his T-shirts.  Twist my arm why dontcha! ;)

Craft time was followed by cuddles with my favorite short one and splashing bubbles around in the tub.  Now my Elijah is sleeping soundly and dreaming of happy things.  Cliff is working late tonight.  The house is too quiet.  I miss my boys when they're not with me.  Still, gotta take advantage of the alone time when it comes around, right?  I'm sure there's a chick flick around here somewhere just waiting to be watched...

With Love,
Danielle Renae
