1 - So maybe I'm on a Walk the Moon kick right now. I need music that will get me movin', ya know. I got dishes to do, pancakes to flip, a Thomas train track to build in a figure 8 so that it has to include a bridge and tunnel, a baby to nurse, and a miracle boy to read From Head to Toe to for the 80 billionth time. I'm busy, people! I need some pep in my step.
|Can you do it? I can do it!|
2 - My newest article at Ignitum Today is up. It's called "The story of a house: one person's redemptive suffering is another's second chance." So I broke the rule about short titles. *shrug* Go read it! Share it with your friends and your grandma! She'll love it!
3 - The article is about my friends Alisha and Jude and this amazing thing that happened to them when they sold their house. I even did an interview with Alisha for the post, which was a lot of fun, really long, and had many fun tangents - including one about gravy.
4 - I still have a cough and a sore throat from my stupid sickness. Last week was horrible and when I went to the doctor he looked at my throat and said, "Ah, that's gross!" Then he laughed and gave me a prescription. I feel better in every other way but I still have this dumb cough.
5 - Travis and I love our family practitioner. Who may or may not read this blog... I'm not sure. (Hey, Mark, if you're reading.) I asked him if I'd be well enough to go to my family reunion, which was last Sunday. He said yes but that if I didn't want to go he'd write me a note.
6 - While at the family reunion I was holding Ben when one of my great aunts approached. "Is this your son?" she asked me. "Yes. This is Ben," I said proudly. She looked disappointed and confused and then told me she wanted to see the miracle baby she was reading about in the papers. Poor Ben - she doesn't know what she was missing out on!
7 - This past week I've continued to keep a fairly low profile, mostly because of the dang cough. The kids and I have walked to the park, had home-made pancakes for breakfast, and even done crafts. (!) The days have been pretty smooth and I have realized that the thing that makes this possible is if I do not shower until quiet time. Me in my pajamas until 2pm = everyone's happy. I'm glad to know how to make it work, but I think that it's not too practical.
