I can tell it is January.

I feeling so blah. I can't see the blue in the sky, or the sun. January just finally caught up to me since I was gone for the beginning of it and crazy busy the few weeks after I got back. Luckily for me, February always helps me get through the winter months. My b-day is the first week, and should be great as long as my husband puts a little effort into making me feel special that day. (help from a sister, like ideas of what he could do/ get me, is not out of the question) The next week in Valentines day, an excuse for me and my hubby to spend quality time together, something I always enjoy. And the we are more then half way done with Feb. Hopefully March isn't too over cast, like Jan has been, and me and the kids can get out and feel the sun on our faces. Either way...... the best is yet to be. :-)

mostly for myself

If you are complaining about the pile of dirty clothes you have to wash and fold, be grateful you have clothes to wash., some people don't. If you are tired of cleaning your house only for it to get messed up again, be happy you have a house to clean, some people don't. If your kids are driving you crazy and you feel like you aren't equal to the task of raising them, be grateful you have kids to raise, some people don't. If you are arguing with your husband because he just can't do things right, be grateful you have a husband to argue with, some people don't. And last but definitely not least, just when you start to complain that your life is too hard, be grateful that you have a life to complain about, because some people don't.

I had fun playing with Elena today, Daniel was with his grandma, so we had some girl time. She is getting big, but still little at the same time. I also discovered I really enjoy making jewelry. I am sure I can sell it for enough to have it pay for it's self. I got a lot of supplies in Peru and think I will keep getting more and see how it goes. Some days are hard, and some days everything falls into place, random I know but true. I have to get off the computer and try to unwind for bed.

Okay, I wont be posting after this for a while because right now life is too busy and so I have to take care of the more important things. But I thought I would post about Peru. It was amazing, we were there for three weeks. It was hard for me to get used to the food, but I did eat some very yummy stuff. I saw some beautiful beaches. We went to Truillo, 9 hour bus ride over night, and there we saw some amazing ruins. They were huge and had so much detail. Some were from as early as 400 ad, I think. Can't describe the feeling I felt walking through them, but it was amazing. I got sick on New Years Eve and wasn't able to go to the party, which was a bummer because I wanted to dance. But I got better before we had to go, which was good. The people there amaze me, both in good ways and not so good. But it is amazing that they have so little but still they give you whatever they can. I also loved how openly they talk about God and their feelings toward Him. In general I loved it and sometimes I already miss it. Christopher has lots of family there and it was cool to meet all of them and get to know the ones I knew better. I look forward to be able to go again sometime.
