Comfort and Joy

I will turn their mourning into gladness; I will
give them comfort and joy instead of sorrow.
Jeremiah 31:13

This blog post is authored by one tired mommy.  David worked last Wednesday night until midnight, a regular 12 hour day Thursday, Friday morning until Saturday night and then worked Monday until 11:30 at night.  There has been a lot of mommy/little guys time and even though I love it...I am tired.  I can't even imagine how exhausted my husband is.  I don't know about you other wives out there but if David isn't home at a decent time then I don't go to bed at a decent time.  I stay up doing ridiculous things until I can't keep my eyes open any longer.  So because of my lack of sleep this blogpost will be a filled with a wide assortment of subjects.

What I have been up to that has kept me up late...
Reading incredible books like this one.  The Hunger Games Trilogy was awesome...I mean awesome!  A must read!  I wanted something similar to read after I finished this series so I just started this series. the_maze_runner
I know they are both Young Adult books but I don't care...I will shout from the mountain top that I love these books. I am also a HUGE Harry Potter fan so maybe that tells you a little about me.  David bought me a Kindle for Mother's Day and I love reading at night on my Kindle.  He also made the mistake of buying me a light for it so now I stay up too late (often disturbing him) reading on my Kindle.

This morning I watched the trailer for the Hunger Games coming in March and I am pumped!

Anyone want to fly to Boston to see the movie with me?  Hoping I can talk my husband into it.  He made fun of me for years about being obsessed with Harry Potter and now he is a huge fan as well after reading all the books.

I have also been up late scouring deals for Christmas shopping.  I kinda obsess about finishing my Christmas shopping early.  I really want to spend the month of December focusing on the real meaning of Christmas and not being stressed about shopping so instead I'm just stressed now.
Austin has entertained himself as well...
Yes, he is playing on the iPod touch while going to the bathroom. Are you kidding me...he's only 3 and he's acting like a full fledged grown man. =)

On a final, very important precious niece is turning 4 today.  Happy 4th birthday Olivia...we love you very much and wish we could be with you to celebrate your special day! Sweet cousins

If you have some time to do my Christmas shopping online as well, that would be great :)

I always think, "Oh, good. Kevin's gone and I can go to bed early." It never happens. You're about the fourth person who has recommended that trilogy. I'm going to have to read it soon. And I really want to read all the Harry Potter books, but they aren't on Kindle. Frustrating. That potty picture is great - love it! Miss you!
