Gratitude for Homeostasis

December 12th, 2009 | No Comments | Posted in gratitude

One of the things I am grateful for is my health. While it does come and go and sometimes things get in the way in terms of my overall, detailed health, I am glad to be alive and well. Between this time last year and now, I’ve pretty much gone back to my old weight (which I’ve come to accept.. I could probably use to be a little heavier, but oh well) without even having to use any type of slimming pill to do it. I appreciate my body being able to recognize its own homeostasis level and helping me get back to it when the time comes. I feel healthy, alive, and wonderful. I’m glad to be here.

2009 Is Almost Gone

I haven’t had a lot of time to reflect on the things that have happened this year. Lily is in her absolute busiest (well, as far as we know, anyway!), and we’re having a darn time catching up with her! Since June, we’ve managed to do several things: moved from having an infant to a toddler, going on vacation to Disneyland (not one of those orlando vacations, but to California!), have a toddler’s birthday party (several times over, actually!), and even made a few friends along the way. Now, we’re getting ready for the big Christmas season this year, and even getting ready to buy a home in the midst! It’s all so wonderful, so quick, and I’m so so so excited for us! 2010 will totally rock our socks!

Decorating Bug

We’ve been house hunting for only about a week, and I think we’ve already narrowed it down to a few that we really, really love. We’re emotive type of people, and we know what we like when we see it. So we’re going back for a couple of “second looks” to see if we still feel the same way before thinking about making an offer. One of the things we really want to do is decorate, including looking at new furniture and possibly even lighting fixtures to go with the new furniture. It’s a wonderful experience, being able to live in your own home. We’re so excited! We definitely need more furniture to make it feel like home. Moving into a bigger place is going to come in so handy!

New Systems

I’ve been making little changes here and there to Lily’s room. One of my pride and joy when it comes to Lily is that her room is almost always in immaculate condition. It’s always clean, it’s always dusted, everything is in its place, there is a place for everything. One of the things I’ve recently updated in her room is her new mp3 player. Her old one was going wonky on us for a while. She listens to an hour or so’s worth of soft, lullaby music when we put her to bed, so we’ve been depending on a rinky dink mp3 player to do that for us. A couple of speakers hooked up, and voila, it was all set to go. So when we were shopping for <a href=”http://www.buy.com/cat/mp3-players/440.html”>MP3 players</a>, we wanted to get one that was dependable, upgraded, and simple. We didn’t want a fancy schmancy one. We just wanted one that works, that’s all. Welp, we decided to stick with the Samsa. And to boot, we updated her speakers as well!
