As I sit here droopy-eyed at the computer and ponder the day, I must restrain myself from just falling into bed for the night. Perhaps I should just give in, you say.

Alright, but only after a moments reflection :-). For if I don't prop open my eyes for the next 5 weeks or so, I'll surely fade away from the blogosphere...

Today we fed the full ducks, made bad-for-you pancakes, hosed the bird-poop off of the pool. We counted marbles and beans at the island, dreamed of living in the fertile crescent and rode tricycles to our hearts content. We napped and read stories and made ducky nests. We watched the people in the parking lot as we waited for Uncle Ben. We put away laundry. It was a very full day, and tomorrow will be another, Lord willing!

On my mind....attitudes. I am in a hormonal, pregnant state of mind. This may seem the perfect excuse to be a little grumpy; to allow my emotions to get the better of me. But I believe I have a responsibility to continue smiling. To be a gentle, joyful witness to my children instead of an angry, impatient one. I have been slipping lately - quite a bit. So I will read this article, which never fails to inspire and motivate the attitude nerve.

Okay Danielle, you can expire now. Goodnight all!
