all the colors

Funny how our family room has way more color now that a baby is in the house :)

Hangin' with her pooch

I am feeling so yucky right now. I climbed into bed last night (Friday night) at 9 p.m. Slept until 8 and i tried to get up and work, but I only lasted an hour. 9 a.m. found me back in bed until 1 p.m. So thankful for a Hubby that will step in and take care of Rylee without me having to worry about her at all. 1 p.m. I headed downstairs, fed Rylee, put her in her pack n play and she went back to sleep. Jay left to perform a wedding at about 3. He came back and I was still sleeping! LOL So he took Rylee over to the neighbors and chatted with them until about 5:30. So yeah, I basically slept all night and all day. Jay and I put her high chair together that a good friend bought for us. It is very nice. The seat actually reclines and there are two food trays! She really likes sitting in it.

She has already been to a Reds game - when she was about 3 months old. She likes watching them on TV too :)

Any tricks?

Okay, you 'experienced' folks out there! Give me some good tips for being 'content' no matter 'what state I am in.' Lately it's been really tough to be 'happy.' Life is zooming by while I wait on the platform to get on the next time it slows down enough to hop on and find a seat.

I know one thing that causes me some 'huffiness' is when folks ask "Will Regi be coming?" to any function during the day? One way to really get me going is to say that I don't do anything or that I am lazy. But then sometimes I wish I could go to those functions during the day, to have all the time in the world to attend each and every little thing, hold Rylee for hours on end, quilt as long as I wish and have a maid to wait on me...but that's not the world I live in.

I was reading Job this morning and pretty much no one has it worse than he did. So in comparison, I have nothing to be complaining about, but I also don't have much 'joy' either. Then again, I can't say Job was very full of 'joy' either. Nice friends he had too. Which is worse? No friends or friends like his? I mean they at least tried...sorta. I do have a great best friend who also happens to be married to me (yeah, i planned it that way) but even he isn't superman.

I am pretty sure the evil villain is trying to weed his way into my life - the nice thing is that I am aware of it. Now to find all those underground tunnels and blow 'em up before he gets inside the house. Prayer and Bible reading are pretty good dynamite when used together.

So I guess I can't say "i have learned in whatever state I am to be content" but rather I could say "I am attempting to learn..."
