A few days ago, I was putting laundry in the washing machine. Because it is such a brainless activity, my mind started to wander. I realized that as I was working, I was not smiling. I have only recently stopped working and started being home all the time and I am still adjusting. I like it more and more as time goes on, but I am trying to find my "place" as a stay at home mom. Anyway-I thought, "why am I scowling? Do I hate doing laundry? NO. Am I depressed? NO. Am I happy? YES. Do I like being at home? YES." All this in a matter of a few seconds. But I realized that even though I am happy being home (and I actually love doing laundry!) I am not a "whistle while you work" type of person. For a second I felt bad that I wasn't, then I got over it and decided that it's ok to be the type of person I am-whatever that type is! Yay!

I participated in a favorite things swapjack at the Red Velvet Art blog. It was so fun! I am not going to post photos of what I sent Tracey in the UK until she receives the package. I don't want to spoil it! I will post photos soon though, as well as photos of what I receive from her. What a fun thing this was! I am so glad I participated! Those girls at Red Velvet Art are so fun and creative! Love it!
