It's a beeeeeauutiful Saturday morning.
I am on-call this weekend and have been getting calls this morning since 5am, so my day started kind of early.
But I don't mind.
Kenadie woke up. I fed her. She fell back asleep.
She is so deliciously cute, I can hardly stand it.
So I'm reading a little scriptures
and letting my mind wander.
You'd think that my mind would immediately float to spiritual matters with my scriptures in front of me.
I guess I need to work on my spirituality, because I mind wandered to greedy desires.
I want a pair of red high heel shoes.
I've never had red high heel shoes. I don't know if I could pull it off, seeing as my wardrobe on my days off is so often yoga pants and a sweatshirt.
I went shopping at our local thrift store yesterday.
It was great and I got a lot of cute summer clothes, dresses, and pants for the Kenners, some large sweaters to turn into dresses for Kenners, and some shirts for myself all for under $40! Woohoo!
And I saw a pair of reeeeally cute red Steve Madden high heels that looked a lot like this:
It made me suddenly really want a pair.
But, they were too small for me. *sorrow*
So no red high heels for now.
Then my thoughts drifted to laundry.
Ugh. I hate laundry.
I have to haul the laundry down to the laundry mat, pay a lot of money to have a rickety old machine do a fair job at washing my clothes and then pay another machine to do a very poor job of drying them (I usually end up hanging a lot of our clothes to dry up around our little apartment).
I wish I had a washer and dryer.
I don't think I'd mind the laundry at all then. It would be soooo much easier, I wouldn't know what to do with myself!
Then I started looking through some blogs and had camera envy because so many bloggers out there have really good cameras to take amazing pictures with. I would like to have a nice camera to get such nice pictures of our family life.
And now that I'm contemplating things a little more,
I don't know that I'd change anything about my life.
It's okay that I don't have red shoes.
That's something to look forward to someday.
It's okay that I have to drag my laundry down the stairs to the laundry mat
because someday I will have a washer and dryer and I will really appreciate it because I've had to go through a period of hanging my soaking laundry to dry all over my apartment.
And someday I will have a nice camera, but for the time being, our little digital camera will work just fine. Besides, it's not like I taking photos for the National Geographic or anything.
I think I'll survive.
Actually, I'll do better than just survive, because my life is maybe just two crumbs shy of perfect.
I have a home.
I have a job.
I have a car that runs (not always great, but it gets us from A to B!).
My husband is going through school to be able to help and serve others (and provide for the fam).
I have an incredibly cute, fun, vivacious little baby girl sleeping in the room next to me.
I can talk to my family on the phone whenever my little heart desires.
I can see my sister and her family often.
I get to go to San Diego in a month (woohoo!!)
and then to Utah in August (double woohoo!).
I have incredible peace and happiness in my life because I have the gospel of Jesus Christ.
Our family has been sealed together for time and all eternity in the temple.
Really, there is nothing more that I could ask for that would truly make my life better.
So go away greediness.
You have no place in my life.
