Days 11-15

Day 11 – a photo of you recently and how it makes you feel seeing it now

This is the most recent photo of me. I took it this past weekend. It makes me feel really happy. :) Our little rainbow is such a blessing and I’m just so glad that she’s here.

Day 12 – something you are OCD about

I’m big on organization. I like things to be in their proper place. Every once in a while I’ll go through the house and reorganize things and get rid of stuff. I think Anthony hates it when I do that because he never know what stuff of his is gonna bite the dust. lol I’m also the mom that if the toys aren’t put back where they’re supposed to be I’ll throw them away. I’ve done that on more than one occasion with Hannah. Kinda sounds mean but children are perfectly capable of learning how and where to put things away by a certain age. Not putting things away properly is the perfect way to lose things and it bugs me to no end when toys don’t have all their pieces.

Day 13 – a fictional book that is meaningful to you since your loss

I’m not really coming up with a fictional book that means something to me. I guess I like the children’s books that help explain loss and help remember the lost sibling.

Day 14 – a nonfictional book that is meaningful to you since your loss

Books that mean more to me now are ones that have stories similar to mine like Waiting with Gabriel, In Faithfulness, He Afflicted Me, and I Will Carry You. I can relate a lot to them and it’s just something that’s familiar to me.

Day 15 – what you like about your house

We bought our house 5 years ago. It was the nicest house that we looked at and I knew immediately when we toured it that it was the one. The thing I like about our house is the location. We live in a really small town but it feels more like country so we’re kinda the in between. Plus, we have great neighbors.

Above is a picture of the back of our house during our annual cookout this past summer.

Another plus of our house is that we have a pretty big yard compared to the other houses in our area. We actually have 2 lots and depending on what we decide to do later we could have a 3rd once the house beside us is demolished.

Love the picture of Lainey and you.
I'm the same way I'm not one to have toys around that can't be picked up / broken ones.
I think you have a beautiful home to. I like your pick for books too.

Sweet picture of you and Lainey. :)

I checked out your other posts before this one. I got a laugh out of your husband not liking you getting rid of "stuff." lol I do it all the time. Chris didn't care for it too much either. I would do it when he was at work. lol!!

We know what we're doing, right? :)

Magnifique photo de vous et lainey.
Mon mari doit comprendre le votre car j'aime que les choses soient ranger. Les enfants peuvent le faire très tôt et il est bon pour leur autonomie d'apprendre à le faire.

I'm right there with you on throwing stuff out! If you cant take 5 extra minutes to put it back where it belongs then I dont need to spend 15 harping at you to do something with it. I like to remind once and then pitch it. I make so much money at garage sales that way :)
