Do you ever go to bed feeling like you did not accomplish anything you wanted to that day?

Lately this seems to be the story of my life. I have even taken to writing down all that I HAVE done in the day just to show myself that I did actually do something.

Today I went to church made dinner cleaned my bedroom visited my parents etc but while visiting my parents a migraine struck. Seriously one minute I was fine the next I could not get my eyes to focus to save my life. I was in bed at 7pm much to the chagrin of mr chase. That simple thing caused me to feel like I got nothing done. 😞

I felt like my whole night was wasted, says I as I write this from my iPhone t 1130.

It's been that kind of day... You know the kind. You go and go and go by the time you finally stop you're exhausted and want nothing more than to go straight to bed. Do not pass go do not collect all the toys on the floor do not fold that one last load of laundry just go to bed and when you do, you can't fall to sleep! { insert cursing here } seriously!

Here is a list of SOME of the things I did today. Yes I made a list, a list for my husband because inevitably he asks me what I have done all day. Granted this list is not all inclusive it leave out everything past 7pm and the things I forgot while writing the list.

It's just been one of those days.

Another down

Finished another blanket this evening. Okay finished might be the wrong word I need to weave in the ends and add a stitch or two to reinforce some sewing together I have already done but for the most part it's done!!! No pattern just winged it, I can't read a pattern to save my life.

Take A Deep Breath

Sometimes my own words fail me:

Sometimes Late at Night

The clock is ever so slowing creeping it's way along inching closer to midnight. My house is quite except for the sounds of snores drifting in from the children's room, oh and the loud engine like roar of my dear husband snoring away next to me. But In These not so quite moments, somewhat late at night, I lay here in bed and revel in how blessed and grateful I am.

It's true I don't have many of the things I want and sometimes even go without the things I think I need but right now i cant think of anything i would be willing to trade for this peace that I have in this moment .

My family are all under the same roof. It was a fight free evening. I got to hold and cuddle with BOTH of my beautiful children. My husband, who -God bless him- drives me crazy, fell asleep while holding me, rolls over every so often and when he does he whispers I love you even though he is mostly asleep, he is currently snoring in my ear.

My children are both asleep in their room, which I was just in and they are both breathing, snoring lightly.

As for me... Well I am enjoying the peace that I have right now in this moment. I know it's not gong to last that long but I am enjoying it while it does.

Go Jazz

So for our 1 year anniversary Mr. Chase and I went to the first NBA home game of the season for the Utah Jazz.

Luckily I had pulled some strings and managed to get the Jazz to pull off a win, just to commemorate our anniversary.

We had a great time.

What I've Done

So I know I've been a bad blogger. In 2012 I will work on being a better blogger, not only for your entertainment but to save my sanity. Its been too long. However you may ask what I have been doing with all the extra time I have had since I have not been blogging.

Well...  at least I haven't been sitting on my thumbs!  Throw in 4-5 hats and a scarf or two and you can see what I've been up to.

I hope you have missed me. I have missed you.
