Take 340

7 Quick Takes Friday
--- 1 ---
Ah April. Remember how I was doing monthly resolutions? This month I focused on not yelling. I don't yell in all areas of my life... mostly just motherhood. So, I read a few articles and I think I made real progress this month. 

I'm not positive that trying to be extra patient hasn't led to a bit more giving in when I shouldn't... but we're all just trying to survive, right?

I did learn one thing during this April resolution. Screen time. I worked on screen time in March and definitely saw that screen time when kids were around led to decreased patience... and more yelling.

Guys. How will we gear up in the next 8 years to feed teenagers? I'm already nervous about my children's capability to eat all day long and eat as much as Brian or I can eat during a meal. Let's just say this: I believe I will need to totally revamp my method for stocking and shopping. Hollow legs.

I realized this week that I have this lofty goal of doing laundry on Saturday. Only Saturday. Somewhere around Tuesday I give in. Then Thursday rolls around. Even after revamping and building up our wardrobes... too many stains. And then I realized... It's kind of a ridiculous goal. And this is just my life. Bring on the loads of laundry.

We found a nest in our garden shed... Isn't it beautiful? 
Brian skillfully removed it and 10 days later she's busy again... starting from scratch... in the exact same spot. Isn't nature crazy?

Today's post is later in the day... want to know why? I worked today. Swapped days and took yesterday off and worked on a Friday. Final verdict? I love Fridays off. Hoping not to have to switch to a different day very often. 3-day weekends are the best.

Celebrating Cinco de Mayo this weekend? We hope to find a way... all the way in Germany! 

Happy Friday!
