Reflecting Through the Cycles of Life.

Lately , I've been thinking about the four seasons of weather. I have been reflecting on how each one effects us differently. Take right now for instance, it is in the middle of winter and I am couped up in the house going stir crazy ,while my three year old runs around like a maniac. I think to my self, I can't wait for summer, that way we can get out of the house and play outside and take Jacob swimming and down to the park.
Then I reflect on spring. Spring comes and I am so excited to see the longer days and the snow melt.I get excited to see little flowers pop their delicate heads through the snow. While spring is here, I think of the muddy sidewalks and driveways, and hope I don't have to push a stuck car out of the mud in my Sunday clothes. I don't know if it really is going to stay warm  Will we get another snow storm that is going to kill those cute little flowers. When the trees finally show the bright lime green that is so fresh, all I want , is for it to never end. As soon as I start to notice it , it is gone.

           Summer comes around staring out chilly , I wish it could be warmer. As the days roll by, the sunburns and bee stings and humid weather remind me why I don't really like summer. Just when I am starting to get use to the warm weather and all that it has to offer.

           It begins to change as it gets windier and the trees change color. I love the crisp smell of the air and the sound of rustling leaves as I walk but as the days get colder, I want summer back.

         The first day it snows, I am excited to see it. To remember long winter days fill of making crafts and holidays and family time together. It only seems as if the first few times it snows it is neat . Then after two months of constant snow, I want it to be warmer.
         As I reflect how all of the seasons and how they make me feel, I am learning that life is full of memories in these four seasons, and as the seasons pass I grow older and my life continues on. Jacob is three and growing to fast. I need to enjoy the excuse he gives me to enjoy each season as a child enjoys them for what they are.If you see a grown woman going sled riding with out a child, it seems kinda freaky. But Jacob is the best way I can still have fun like a child but grownup, (adult supervision). When I am old with white hair and can't bend down without my hips popping, I want to look back on the different seasons of my life and remember all the wonderful moments that each of them held. So now instead of looking forward to the next season, I am going to look toward the here and now and think, what kind of fun can I have today with my baby.

It's The Little Stuff That Counts.

My husband usually has to work in the Mornings and he somehow always makes my day, even if he is not home. When he had his cell phone, he would text me the sweetest notes to tell me he loves me, well this morning I got up, did work around the house and went to eat my breakfast and work on the computer, I turned on the monitor and this is what I found.

I know that to many people it wouldn't seem like a big deal but to me it's major. I adore when he does the smallest little things to tell me he loves me. It feels me with joy.

Sometimes It Is The Player and Not The Instrument.

The other day, I was so excited, I got new sheet music for my flute. I was really excited to play cause I haven't been able to play for a while ,because I got my wisdom teeth out. Well I warmed up fine and when I went to play ,it sounded as if my flute couldn't make the high notes correctly. I checked over my flute at least twenty times and couldn't put my finger on what the problem was.
I began to think about anything that could of happened to my flute since I've played it last. I had nothing, then I thought what is the difference between than and now. I then realized that I was two teeth less and to play the higher notes I had to press in my cheeks harder cause there were no teeth back there. Once I did that my flute played perfectly. So I realized that sometimes it is not the object that has the problem but the handler. Boy did I feel like a ditz.

The Feeling of Spring.

I know that it is only February, but I have a boost of knowing spring is on the way. In the apartment where I live, in the summer, the sun constantly pours through my windows. In the morning, it pours through my east windows and in the evening , the sun pours through my west windows. The only drawback is when we want to watch TV in the evening and can't cause we get blinded. For the past two days I have woken up to come down stairs and get blinded with sun in my kitchen. So I know spring is on the way. I am happy cause two words, LILAC SEASON.

First Visit to the Dentist.

Today Febuary 4,2010, marks the first day that Jacob went to the the dentist ever. I was worried that he wasn't going to be good and not let them clean his teeth. wow was I surprised how well Jacob did. He now has 20 teeth and has a really cool marker toothbrush, a new container of playdough, stickers, and new flossers. He was VERY well behaved and was an excellent patient. I was proud when the dentist told me that Jacob has really nice teeth. My baby has NO cavities! I wanted to get pictures of him and the dentist but while he was getting his teeth cleaned, I was getting mine done as well. I can't believe Jacob is already three and has twenty teeth. I remember when we found his very first tooth.

My Two Upper Wisdom Teeth are No more!

Today I got my wisdom teeth pulled! I did it. I was so scared and terrified that it was going to hurt really bad. Well the Dentist was VERY nice and explained everything that was happening. I couldn't believe that after about ten minutes, the dentidt looked at me and said that I was all done! I couldn't believe how quick it took him to get them out. I had a numb mouth for half the day and have been putting ice on it since the novacane wore off. So only one or two more days of soft foods and then I can eat normally again.
