Sunday began the coldest of the cold weather streaks I’ve ever experienced here in Kansas, which meant for our wonderful diesel engine Jetta, it would begin hibernation and there was no going anywhere. We tried all our tricks to get it started on Sunday, but to no avail. And the weather forecast didn’t show any…
It’s that time of year again, so I’ll review 2009 with the following quiz that I posted last year… 1. What did you do in 2009 that you’d never done before? Ronnie and I raised money and rode the motorcycle together in Bikers for Babies. It was awesome and probably one of my most memorable…
Holiday season is fast approaching, and we’re starting to gear up. First, I changed my blog theme. The old “springy” theme has lasted me almost two years, but I got tired of having to work with the set color scheme when designing headers, so I’ve chosen this neutral option. My current header is basic but…
The Deep End
Sometimes I find myself questioning everything, wondering what really matters, fearing things I can’t control. I wonder if I’ve always had these thoughts or if it’s something that comes with age and experience and life. That brief moment I pass an accident on the highway and my mind lurches into what-if’s of all kinds, running…
“I can’t remember the last thing that I don’t remember”
Quoted by my brother, Matt, yesterday, while in recovery after getting his spleen removed. Obviously he was on some drugs, but the rest of us got quite a laugh out of that comment! So yes, yesterday was a little exciting for our family, as my brother went to the ER yesterday morning for terrible pain…
Piece of the Web
I ran across this little article about marriage on Yahoo’s homepage today. It made some great points! Seeing stuff like this every now and then is a great reminder that when I’m going through less-than-fairytale times in my marriage, I am not alone, and maybe I just need to adjust my perspective. 7 Things No…
Mixed Drinks, Mixed Feelings
That could easily sum up our vacation! Since it was all-inclusive, you could pretty much order any drink you wanted, and if you didn’t like it, you just gave it back and ordered another to try. My favorite “easy” drink were the Bahama Mamas and Pina Coladas (though the Pina’s were better with an extra…
Home Sweet Home!
Flying home from a vacation never felt so good! As soon as our plane touched down from today’s bumpy, windy landing in KC, I wanted to burst out with tears of joy! We were home safely and would be seeing Skyler very soon. We are super exhausted from what we wish would’ve been an amazing…
I might make it to church more often if I could find one like this. Maybe…it’s actually kind of creepy… Divine Dancing
I got tagged!
There’s this thing in the blogosphere where bloggers will “tag” other bloggers in a blog post. It’s often times in the form of a questionnaire that they’ve filled out and posted, and then they tag other bloggers to post their answers to that same questionnaire on their blogs. So, Mrs. Holee tagged me, and here…
