Where I Am: It is 10:18 on a Friday night and I am already in bed…this is what pregnancy has reduced me to, but I’m surrendering and embracing my exhaustion to the best of my ability! Josh is entertaining our 5-year old nephew who is visiting with my sister-in-law, Joy, with an AMAZING fort and movie. I feel that my husband’s expertise and fort-building is a good sign for his prospects as a dad in the near future. So, here I am doing my best to follow-through on my commitment to start blogging 2-3 times a week. I’ve made some writing goals for myself and blogging seems to be a good way to keep the juices flowing!
In the meantime, here are a couple blogs that I currently frequent:
http://www.flowerdust.net/ (for thoughts on theology & ministry)
http://promisetangemanblog.com/ (for inspiration regarding ministry coupled with art)
http://peacockfeatherevents.blogspot.com/ (for pretty things that make me smile)
What blogs are you reading? I’m especially looking for a good blog on mother-hood that is maybe a bit…unconventional (like me)…let me know if you know of something & of any other blogs you would recommend!
What I’m Watching: Not much to report here – I enjoyed the movie The Blind Side…I got sucked into Glee (because of my sister Leslie)…Josh and I watch Community occasionally…
OH, and I saw two episodes of Hoarders on A&E last Sunday. Seriously, disturbing and yet fascinating all at the same time. I think I was especially hooked because in our last house, our next door neighbor was hoarder. I don’t mean she had a little trash around the property…NO, she had 7 storage buildings in the backyard, her car was filled to the place where she could barely get in, and neighbors constantly called the police because the stench was bad. My heart broke for her, and yet we could never seem to connect or find a way into her life. Anyways, the show was mindboggling…and I can’t help but keep thinking about our neighbor – praying she finds freedom and someone that she can trust.
Most Embarrassing Moment: I’ve decided that this needs it’s own post…so, I’ll just tempt you with this little picture – Me (in my pregnant glory) fainting in Red Lobster in the presence of 8 very concerned men…more to come soon.
Favorite Picture: We took Levi & Joy to Santa Land tonight- I love lights, cold weather, hot cocoa, and smiles on kids faces!
