Those who hope in the Lord will renew their strength; they will soar on wings like eagles.
They will run and not grow weary, they will walk and not be faint.

Hello, Dear Ones

It's been a while, and since I know so many of you read this here blog regularly, you've missed me terribly. {Right teebs?}

Sorry for my absence, but this week has just about slaughtered my soul. In fact, I expect them to be selling  pounds of my spirit in the meat fridge at Shaw's in a couple of days. It's been that awful. Its been a week of fussy {and rather mean, really} children, and my own insecurities overwhelming me. It's been that kind of week.

So sorry for the negativity. Moving on.

So big news for this week:

My family got a new car! {What?! Yes! A NEW-to-us CAR!} It's a 2004 Dodge Stratus. The newest car that was sitting in our driveway a month ago was our wonderfully decrepit 1995 Ford Mustang, and while it looked like, well, a mustang, it drove similar to the 1988 Toyota Celica we also have sitting in our driveway. Needless to say, that does not drive well at all. So basically, I'm thrilled! A NEW CAR! That gets more than 18 miles to the gallon! In fact, 30! Hurrah!

Also good news, I called my mom this evening and moaned about my miserable week for a solid ten minutes and do you know what she said? "I'm sorry that this week's been so stressful for you."
Genuinely sorry.

Now don't get me wrong, I am not by any means derailing my mom's character, especially not on the web, but you must understand that being my mother, she doesn't accept my complaints and negativity very readily, and tends to combat it with tough love. So this was a surprising but very pleasant new reacting that I was not expecting at all. I enjoyed it. And it made me feel a lot better, believe it or not.

So that's my life for today. Someday I'll start writing about things that people actually want to hear about. Something applicable to life, or something. But since this is my blog, and there are only five of you followers right now, I'll write what I want. Have a wonderful evening!


  1. Write about how excited you are that Im coming home!!
    love you
