A challenge not to write
Well, my son challenged me to make the gap in writing here a whole month. Jason, I refuse the challenge. It's "only" been 23 days. Of course, looking back, I see I've already accomplished your challenge by being silent from Oct 2nd until Nov 8th. So that's taken care of anyway.
But really I'm only showing up here now because my cousin Sarah from Massachusetts revealed in her comment that she's actually been reading my blog (I did not know this, Sarah! Or I didn't remember; I'm thinking that was your first comment here) and would like to know what's going on with the empty space. Well, that's enough for me - I shall divulge. Someone (other than my mother) cares. :-) Also, I happen to be between large commitments of my time.
Hmmmm. Maybe I should just check my iPhone calendar one more time to make sure I'm really not supposed to be somewhere leading something, instead of sitting here in my bathrobe writing to you. Seriously. I'm going upstairs.
...Okay, ironically I realized I did have a responsibility to fulfill, of a leadership type, but it was one that I could take care of in my current attire, so I did that - in October, I started a daily prayer accountability group for six ladies on Facebook, and we check in with each other weekly to see how it's going. So I posted the check-in topic for this week. Now I'll just start the laundry (Mondays and Fridays in our household) and get back to you soon.
...Now that's going, I also:
- had a homemade Christmas cookie - seeing as how they're whole wheat and ground pecans, that's healthy enough for breakfast - never mind the sugar & butter & sprinkles parts.
- got distracted looking for my cousin on Facebook. You're not on there, are you! That's why you're asking what's going on in my life! That's why you haven't seen the latest Grand Marnier crêpe flambée photo...that's where everything happens lately. It's just SO easy to post photos real-time from my iPhone from wherever I am, and post little updates multiple times a day. It has become my outlet, replacing my blog (as you noticed).
- checked my email and retrieved some requested bells from our toy room to bring to Sunday service to ring before Ding Dong Merrily On High :-) I'm just thankful I'm not scheduled to lead singing this week, since last year in singing that tune I nearly passed out from lack of appropriate breathing moments. Just watching Celtic Woman at it again makes me short of breath (though they don't look like it's any effort at all - I need to learn from their breathing techniques). I do love their dresses and sweet-looking enthusiasm. It's my favorite song of theirs, but NOT my favorite to sing myself at church on stage.
Now this post is too long to include any ACTUAL CONTENT...I'll have to post this and start again. Thanks for asking, Sarah!
