I just saw this on tv and laughed so hard.
"I really underestimated the creepiness." So good. So good.

Aw....I was just reading my pregnancy blog and it brought such a big smile to my face. It also seems like a life time ago and crazy how much I've learned and grown in the past 3ish months. And so weird to think that that baby inside of me was Noah. So weird. Very surreal.
If you are squeamish and don't want to hear about icky pregnancy things, you'd probably better steer clear of the blog.
That's all.

confessions of a lazy reader

I have a confession to make:
I am a skimmer by nature. That is, when I read, more likely than not I have skimmed/skipped over parts of a book that didn't seem that interesting to me. This includes technical parts in a novel, or even skipping "application" sections of a nonfiction book in order to get to the next story or illustration. You could call it lazy reading.
This is why approaching the Bible to read takes a heckuva lot of motivation for me. Especially because I know there aren't really any parts that I should be skipping over. Because all parts are there for a reason and are important to the plot line. And to me. So it is with a bit of shame and discouragement that I also confess ( must be the fact that I haven't left the house in over a week that has me in the "confessing" mood) that I am only on day 7 of my schedule to read through the Bible in a year. Partly because adjusting to being a Mom has been interesting to find quiet times throughout my day. Partly because I've always struggled with maintaining a regular (daily) time in the Word. Partly because even since Noah's naps have become very regulated and I do now have chunks in my's just hard to sit myself down, be still, and read. every. single. word. without. skimming. Partly because getting the motivation to start is a million times harder than it is to keep going once it's a regular part of your routine.
So that's me. I know that right now I'm going on "manna" I've gathered from weeks and months and years before. I also know that I'm actually supposed to be out collecting manna on a daily basis to get me through each and every day. Sometimes (most times) head knowledge takes a really long time to become heart knowledge and ultimately action.

I think I'm going to write a book called "Everything I needed to know about life I learned while support raising."
It'll be a great book.

Thou shalt not...

On my home page this news story popped up about a couple receiving $100,000 from a complete stranger. Amazing.
I want that to happen to me. The things I could do with $100,000. And not things like blowing it on silly thousand dollar diaper bags...but things like getting rid of debt, buying a house instead of renting, getting a bigger vehicle - or at least one with 4 doors (you don't appreciate a 4 door until you have a baby!). I mean, I am happy with my life right now but of course I'd like to be out of debt and owning my own home.
Yes, that would be nice.
Sometimes it's far too easy to covet.
