Welcome to my new blog, www.wonderwahls.wordpress.com I was having far too many technical difficulties with the last one-my mommy brain just couldn’t get past the mass confusion, and so I decided to throw in the towel and start fresh. I’ve been thinking a lot about what I want to be [when I grow up] when the kids are in school. Allen is always going back to that age-old question of, what are you passionate about, what do you love to do? Besides being a mom, of course, I LOVE to write. I love to write mostly about motherhood and my adventures with 2 kids, 5 chickens, the world’s laziest cat and our oft forgotten fish. A blog is a great place to vent frustrations, ask great questions and get some perspective on life. So, here I am, after a couple months’ hiatus.
I feel like I’m in a really great place right now in life. Things seem fairly stable, and of course experience has proven to show that when life gets too comfortable, the unexpected comes along to re-awaken my ability to be flexible and trust God in His plans.
I’m super excited that we are soon going to be heading on a plane to San Diego. Okay, so actually it isn’t for another 2 months, which is kind of dreadfully far away (especially for Abrielle who insists TODAY must be the day we’re going to meet the princesses at Disneyland and swim with the dolphins @ Seaworld). I know that I have tended, in the past, to, like Chevy Chase in “National Lampoon’s Christmas vacation” really build things up in my head and get easily dissapointed if they don’t go according to ‘my plan.’ Hey, another opportunity to trust God with the details! Ye-ah. Mostly easier said than done. The fact of the matter is, I’m already scared about the 2-hr plane ride with my kids and the fact that Sawyer has NEVER done well sleeping away from his crib, and we’re talking about a whole week away from home. In fact, when we tried to put him down in the pack n’play for the overnight Thanksgiving trip at my mom’s, he cried so hard he puked, all over e-v-e-r-y-t-h-i-n-g. I guess a week with 2 kids in between us won’t necessarily kill me, or…..perhaps we can get a room with 2 beds?
