a week, that's all... i hope to be able to keep up.

I follow a few scrappy blogs religiously. One i check every day is Ali Edwards blog. Ya, I'd have to say that she's one of my absolute favorite inspirations. Tomorrow she's starting A Week In Your Life. It's basically documenting a week in your life with pictures and words. I'm thinking that I'm sort of needing this right now. Life seems so, what's the word... daily, so monotonous. "I'm just a mom". I know it's the most important think i could do in my life right now, but it seems so un-rewarding at times. I need to get back to understanding and knowing that this is what I'm supposed to be doing. I'm thinking this will help.

Of course, this will be a trying week. Sam has come down with the stomach bug (i REALLY hope that is what it is and not a repeat of last year's parasite? That kid really needs to stop eating rocks and dirt and keep things out of his mouth). DarRell and I spent all night long up with Sam, who was vomiting every two hours, give or take a bit. If it is the stomach bug, I'm sure it'll make its rounds through the house and it'll be difficult to keep up with a week of pictures and words, but it just might be what i need to pull me out of this mommy slump.

I'm hoping that by posting it here, it'll give me the motivation to keep up on it. I think i'll spend the day getting supplies together to help make the process a bit easier to wrap my busy life around.
