Okay, so my cousin Becky tagged me for this on Facebook and I decided to post it here as well so…here’s my 25: WARNING: Bryan helped with these so I will not guarantee the veracity of any of the following statements… 1. My favorite show is Smallville….mainly because I like to drool over Tom Welling. […]
“Be the type of woman that as soon as your feet hit the floor each morning, the Devil says: ‘Oh Crap, she’s up!’” —Maxine
Today’s sermon discussed to the transformation of Saul of Tarsus into Paul the Apostle and Paul’s own account that “God apprehended me.” The pastor asked “Has God busted into your life?” Good question; well, has He?
Sorry, karma, you were wrongly accused. The true culprit has been identified and his name is Bryan. I found my keys — the set I use, not the spare — in the pocket of one of Bryan’s coats, hanging in the hall closet. Now, I may wear his sweatshirts, and his T-shirts, and even sometimes […]
He makes progress only when he sticks his neck out. – James B. Conant
“Do not go where the path may lead, go instead where there is no path and leave a trail.” Ralph Waldo Emerson
I used to consider myself an organizational guru. (See my previous post on Boxes!) I like to have a place for everything and everything in its place. Of course, it seems like with each child, I get a little more lax in the way I do things. I’m certainly no neat freak any more; I […]
Yesterday, I was sitting in my van in the line of cars waiting to pick up kids from school. Because of the parking lot setup, the line typically forms alongside a fence separating the playground from the lot. As I sat there, listening to the radio and enjoying a time when Ben was “tied down” […]
I heard this morning that Point of Grace is going to release a country CD. A local radio station previewed one of their songs and one line in particular stood out to me: “make peace with God and yourself because in the end there’s no one else.” Something to think about.
My grandmother is an interesting character. She’s about 80 years old and, as Bryan likes to point out, is “sharp as a tack.” And she has the memory of an elephant, which is sort of funny since she collects elephant figurines, knick-knacks and the like. At most of my visits, she’ll sit in her comfy […]
That’s what Boy Genius said today was whenever Bryan asked who wanted to go with him to return something to Best Buy this evening. “I do…’cause it’s a ‘daddy Saturday,’” he said with a grin. You see, this morning Bryan decided to take him for some father-son “quality” time. (We’ve been talking about how we […]
[WARNING: Shameless bragging on my sweet kids about to ensue; hmph, as if that doesn’t happen in every post!] The other day I had to take a check to Wonder Boy’s new “preschool” to reserve his spot. As we were pulling out of the parking lot, I announced to the car (i.e., for The Girl […]
I heard a song on the radio today for the first time but I don’t think it’s new. It’s called “Little Girl” by John Michael Montgomery. Listen/watch here. It may or may not make you cry, but it will definitely make you think.
I got a call yesterday from the UALR professor who’s in charge of lining up adjunct faculty for the Rhetoric and Writing Department. He and I had talked and exchanged emails/phone messages before the holidays about my possibly teaching a few classes. Looks like I’m going to be teaching two sections (classes) of the Writing […]
This past Saturday was our 10th wedding anniversary and we just keep getting better! We had a wonderful time on a weekend getaway to Branson. We had planned on going to our house in TN, renting a Uhaul and bringing some stuff back here for the move out of the corporate housing at the end […]
