7 Quick Takes - 27

--- 1 ---
I walked to our Cathedral from work over the noon hour and went to Daily Mass today!  Yay!  I really need to commit to doing that every day...at least more often anyway.  I had started walking over lunch down to the Farmer's Market to get produce.  So when the Fortnight for Freedom started yesterday, I was trying to figure out how I could do more praying and decided I would attempt daily Mass at least today.  Now I am looking at my schedule to see how I can do it more often.

So this past week, I got 61 activity points.  But it didn't do much for me on the scales at my Weight Watchers meeting yesterday.  Boo on me.  A friend had a good point that maybe I'm not eating enough to feed my body properly for my increase in activity.  While she gave me some food for thought...I really think my problem last week was eating fried chicken and cinnamon rolls on Saturday followed by a breakfast buffet on Sunday followed by a birthday party where I consumed cake on Tuesday.  I suppose it could have been way worse, huh?

Got to meet our parish's new priest last night at our parish welcome potluck.  It was nice.  The priest is something like 26 and he looks it!  I love seeing new solid young priests coming out of seminary (this year our parish had 7 total).  I told Father we'd like to have him over for dinner and that perhaps I should make the call because I've been waiting on my husband to invite our pastor over for awhile now and maybe the project just needs a woman's touch.  Nah...actually, we're just too darn busy.  But we really need to make time.

At work today, the Cafeteria had "Sushi Friday."  I don't know if I have ever mentioned on here before how much I love sushi.  Well, i only got 2 pieces to go with my salad because I wasn't sure how many PointsPlus they are.  Well it's only 1 PointsPlus per piece!!!  Yay!!  I'm glad to know that because Sushi...is DEFINITELY worth the points.

My baby boy has an ear infection.  He's been spiking a fever off and on for the last week and a half.  At the same time he has been whining and grabbing his mouth, so I kind of thought it was just teething.  My kids have always gotten a bit congested when they are getting teeth in, so I chalked it up to that.  But finally, last night, I had had it.  Vincent was up for 2+ hours just whining and crying and hot with a fever again.  So, Craig took him to the doctor and they discovered an ear infection.  He turns 1 next Saturday and this is the only ear infection he's had.  I don't know if he's been in the pool or not (Craig takes the kids swimming if they go).  But either way...I'm not glad he has an ear infection, but I am glad to have an answer for the last week and a half and sad that we didn't tend to it sooner.  :(

Dani and Helen are doing really well with swimming lessons.  The teacher for Dani this session was surprised she hadn't passed her level, so he asked her to bring her test paper and she did.  So now he's working specifically on those things that she had trouble with.  I think she's gonna pass this time.  :)  Helen has gotten so brave and gets her head underwater and blows her bubbles.  I can't tell you what a relief it is to have my kids swimming.  The boys will be projects starting next summer, but it's a HUGE relief to get the girls all to a point where they will be able to survive and have fun in the pool.

Sarah and her team have improved in volleyball.  A LOT!  It's exciting to watch!  They are going to be in 6th grade this year and I am looking forward to seeing how they do this fall.  Dani gets to start playing this fall, too!  I'm glad my girls at least want to try volleyball.

Can you believe we only have one more week of June!?!?  Holy Moly!  Time flies!

Okay, so I had to add a BONUS!  #cathsorority ladies rock!  We are gonna do 24 hours straight of rosaries and I am just floored at the commitment of everyone to do this.  God is good and I feel so blessed to know you and belong to such a wonderful Catholic women's community!

For more Quick Takes, be sure to head over to Conversion Diary.  Thank you, Jen, for hosting!

  1. 1. I love Daily mass at lunch time - so worth it :).

    5. Don't beat yourself up - it could have been the congestion from the teething that hung around and caused the infection (oh, and most ear infections are not infections at all...rather just fluid built up in the middle ear w/ no bacteria...treatment is still antibiotics b/c it can develop bacteria if not treated.) For pain, a warm, wet washcloth held against the side of head can help. (I don't know if you know but I used to teach kids with hearing loss...know all sorts of stuff about ears :)).


Thank you for reading. I enjoy reading other perspectives, please feel free to share yours. :)
