Advent of Waiting…

I’ve already had my Advent, friends.  I’ve been waiting in a dark, quiet, lonely place for this baby to arrive.  I’ve been quiet here on the blog because it feels like there isn’t much to say other than “she’s still not here,” and I’ve been quiet in real life because it seems like the only […]

Thankful: Theme Thursday

I am thankful for… For my faith, my friends (including you!), my family, and all the blessings in my life.   From today’s reading:   Now go visit Cari for more reasons to be Thankful this Thanksgiving Thursday!  

7 Quick Takes, the pregnant and grumpy edition

I’m leaving for our Friday park day in 30 minutes. Think I can manage some truly quick takes? Yeah. Me neither. But I’ll give it a try anyway. 1. I’m due on Monday. I love saying that. I’ve looked “so pregnant” for so long that people have been giving me the “any day now” comment […]

Ribbon Bookmark Craft: Kid-Made Christmas Gifts

Last night at midnight, as we were installing a new-to-us fridge, I said to Kevin, “I really miss blogging.”  I miss writing and reading and responding to all of you.  But somehow, for the last few weeks, I’ve been up until all hours doing things that are time-sensitive and pressing.  I really only blog at […]

Update on Zeke’s Vision

It’s been in the back of my mind to get Zeke back to the ophthalmologist  for awhile now.  I was supposed to do it 3 months after the initial appointment, but life got busy, I got pregnant, and then we fell off the “wear a patch every day” hell-wagon and so I kept putting it off. […]

Boss me around… Furniture Rehab Addiction

I bought this table and these chairs for a song last weekend.   I know, I know I shouldn’t be starting projects right now.  But seriously?  A wooden table and 6 chairs for $45?  And another couple (non-matching) chairs for a few more bucks? I couldn’t resist.  I was so smitten that I sent Kevin down to […]

The spirituality of labor and birth

Welp.  Today marks 37 weeks pregnant.  That means this baby could (but probably won’t) come any day now.  I’ve started having some pre-labor feelings and discomforts and so of course, it’s time to commence with the crazy that is the last month of pregnancy.  The mind games that wonder, “Is this it?” or “Now surely […]

Halloween Quick Takes, plus link-ups

1. Weather. How lame is it that I’m starting my quick takes with one about the weather?  Teeerrrrrrrible, I know.  But do you know what?  It is RAINING outside.  Real, legit rain that actually sounds like it may be flooding our back porch and I could not be happier.  Honestly, I could not.  If you […]
