and i'm back.
In retrospect, and in the scope of life, it was super trivial, and plainly, just an inconvenience. I realized through it that I am so incredibly thankful we even have a/c. And I am so incredibly thankful the boys are safe and healthy. And I am so incredibly thankful for our amazing church community - one of the families from our church let us borrow a large window a/c unit to use and we bought a small one for the boys to share a room at night - not an expense we were expecting, but worth it to be able to be home and have the boys in their routine (small children and routine - eating, sleeping, playing - is key :)). I realized that I easily take things for granted. And this was a definite help to see that, and I am thanking God for all of the little things that I am so inclined to forget day-in and day-out.
So all of that to say. I have been trying to catch up from those several days. I had a bunch of orders from my shop come in right before this all happened, and am thankful for super understanding and gracious customers, as the shipments were delayed almost a week.
As I am getting back into the swing of things, I am working on a few things - like getting my workspace cleaned up and re-organized (a little tour coming soon!). Planning some new journals (!!!), and really just trying to take it easy and enjoy these last several weeks until we meet our new little one! I will be posting some more random thoughts and info. this week -- blog and shop related.
