Friday Dreaming

Guess what?

John slept for seven hours last night!!!  Glory Hallelujah.

And you know what else?

He and Ada are currently both napping.  at the same time.  Again, glory hallelujah.  We are going to make it.

And for the third thing, I spent the morning having some adult time--thank you, Jessica, and happy birthday!! 

It's a good day.

I am using this down time to dream a few little dreams.

Thinking about things like ripping up my terrible, horrible, makes me want to scream carpet, and replacing it with hardwood floors.  Maybe one day.

And more realistically, the plan to pay off so much debt over the next six months.  Thank you taxes and a car that is finally paid off.  Debt snowball, here we come.

Maybe after that...hardwood floors.  And some new jeans.

What else?  Dreaming of a house that is painted, every room, in just the right colors.  And new tables and lamps for the master bedroom.  And you know, a wall in the kitchen painted in chalk board paint just for fun.  (Thanks for the idea, Sarah).

And, of course, I am dreaming of losing these stubborn last ten baby pounds (though I want to lose 15).  They are hanging on tight.  But...thanks to John's new ability to sleep, I have started the Thirty Day Shred, and I hope to fight those pounds and come out the winner.  A bonus would be to lose them in time for summer and the dreaded bathing suit post baby.

Oh how different our life will look if we can really get that debt snowball rolling, so that dream is what mainly occupies my mind. 

What's on your mind, this Friday afternoon?

Yay for paying off debt! We are beginning to work on that too, and man, it's hard. I would like a professional decorator to come in and get my house organized! : )

I'm dreaming of not working full time forever! Love the recent pics. John's hair does look red too.
