Drum Creativity and Undergarment Epiphany

I'm sitting here in my dark blue wing backed chair and Anna is asleep. So nice. Today was a really good day, a really full day.

{I wrote that last night and Anna woke up shortly after I wrote the above and so I am continuing now...the next day...}

So. Yesterday myself, Matt, and my two brother-in-laws did music for Mass. I sang, and I really enjoyed doing it. Matt's Mom and Dad watched Anna for us and it was really great for the first time in a very long time to be so involved in the Mass. My mind usually wanders even if I don't have Anna with me, but since it has been a while since I've helped with music I didn't want to miss any cues. Especially because the clicker for the slides was in my hopefully-capable hands. (I only forgot to change the slide twice, I consider this a victory)...(Furthermore, I was very impressed by my husbands talent of playing the drums very tastefully with two of my wooden spoons. We got to the Church and the drum sticks were MIA, so...second victory!)


Anyways, to the point I was trying to get at above: I was very focused and was taking the Mass all in as it came and I was reminded how much I love being Catholic. The Gospel really stood out to me, and I also enjoyed the intentions written by Pope Francis. I would be more thoughtful and profound, but my brain is not in the right place to say much more than this...so I will leave it at that, I love it!

Matt and I came back to our house after Mass and relaxed for a little while, which is always a Sunday highlight, I'm loving our little family more and more everyday! Still sometimes can't believe that I have a baby, but then again I can't imagine not having her...she's not much of a cuddle-er but she was sitting all cozy in my lap for a while which made my day. (She wouldn't let me put her pants on so we took a breather)


We then went to Matt's parents for the afternoon and evening and lots of laughs and ham and pumpkin pies were had all around and I even got to feed my tile rummy addiction, yay! I won both games, since you were wondering...

In other news I had an epiphany last night that if we had one designated drawer or basket for clean socks and underwear I could simply toss all of the clean undergarments right in and never fold another! To which Matt replied: Duh I've been doing that my whole pre-marriage adult life...or something along those lines...well...I guess I am late to that train, but excited none the less! So much spare time to be had!

Happy Monday folks!
