So Much Good Stuff

You guys! There is so much stuff going on! I had been feeling overwhelmed, but now I’m just feeling blessed. I’ve been going through the most recent online IF:Equip study on the Spiritual Disciplines¬†and it’s been so magnificent. It has reminded me to slow down and lean into God instead of hyperventilating over my super…

Girls’ Day Out

I realize it’s been over a week since last I regaled you with office updates. Since then I received and put together the cabinet and it’s pretty much wonderful. It’s actually a bathroom floor cabinet from Wal-Mart, but whatever. It suits my needs just fine and it looks great! Except for this little oops right…

I’m Still Around

Holiest of molies! Today marks the end of August and my last post was at the beginning of July. I promised myself I would never again go a whole calendar month without posting because, well, I don’t know why. But since I promised myself and I don’t like to go back on my promises, unless…

A Happy June

June has been quite a month. A great month, really. From really close to the very beginning. I think I’ll tell you about it. The first week of the month it became much too apparent that we needed a new washer and dryer. I was running the spin cycle a couple times, sometimes up to…

Out of Focus

This is going to be one of those really short posts, but I’ve got something to say. Today was Katie’s spring recital – one of my favorite events of the season. I took pictures for the academy’s website and tried hard not to sing out loud along with the vocalists. What a bunch of talent!…

NoThanks – Day Ten

Tonight I’m thankful for the many great moments I had today, a portion of which included both my kids. And that’s all the writing I can muster. I’m whooped from all those great moments today. So whooped I couldn’t manage to take my computer out of the bag so I’m writing this on my phone.…

NoThanks – Day Nine; A Thankful Interview

Katie and I are going to a college open house tomorrow morning so we’re hanging out in a hotel room in Southern Virginia. It was a long (but fun) day and I’m totally exhausted, but I don’t want to blow my record before we’re even a third of the way through the month. So today’s…

Taylor Tales

A lot has happened in the life of our eldest since last I wrote about him. At the end of April he tore up his teenager card and became a twenty-something. As in twenty, which technically means he really is twenty-something, but the “something” is a little misleading. I’m not sure which confounds me more:…

Country Roads…

This past Saturday Todd and I ditched Katie and Sookie and headed down I-81 to bring Taylor home from Lynchburg. He took his last final on Friday and has officially completed his freshman year of college. How did that happen? It seems like just a month or two ago we took him down to “camp”.…
