7 quick takes
1 -Hope you're not getting tired of all my The Head and The Heart videos I've been posting.. I love this band!
2 - Speaking of music I love: I will be doing an phone interview with Audrey Assad today. I'm so excited about it! I asked my friend Nancy for some tips on doing an interview since she is a professional journalist. She assured me that a little bit of gushing at the very beginning is okay so I shouldn't worry if there's a little bit of "oh-my-gosh-this-is-so-cool-I'm-such-a-big-fan" in my voice.
3 - Thursday night the kids and I were on our own since Travis had to stay late at work for parent-teacher conferences. Dinner was supposed to be a breakfast casserole with from-scratch biscuits. Instead we had leftover pizza, cheese cubes, a can of mandarin oranges, green beans, and bacon. I'd say it was a good meal.
4 - We finally had a call about our house. All I wanted to do was have him come over for dinner, show him the house, sign the contract, and send him home with a bag of my freshly baked chocolate chip cookies. The crazy thing is that the guy has actually been in the house twice already because he's one of our town's volunteer firefighters. So he was here the night JF was born and the night I called 911 because a lightbulb went out.
5 - What if this is true?
6 - Just a friendly reminder that this coming Sunday I'll be speaking in Dixon, IL. If you want more information, please check out this post here.
7 - I have a new post up at Ignitum Today called "Special Needs Etiquette". It's actually Part I or a two part article and in it I interview two friends who are the parents of special needs kids. They answer some good questions about how to interact with their children, and others with disabilities, so that we're not all standing around awkwardly as our toddlers ask loud questions in the Target check-out line.
