Weird Wednesday.

Last night I dreamed that I was back in high school. Cue the weird hair-do’s, awkward social situations, and the endless stream of tests and pop quizzes. Yuck. One of my good friends from high school was in this particular dream, except he decided he was going to start driving a semi truck to school. … [Read more…]

Being an Adult.

When you become an adult, some of the strangest things make you happy… I bought a new broom and dust pan today….I’m in love. Getting in your car and seeing that you have over half a tank of gas…pure joy. Opening your mailbox to see no bills have arrived…..it’s party time! Roman says he <3 … [Read more…]

Let’s Get Technical

Hey folks! Just a real short post this Saturday morning to take care of some tech-y things. If you are real observant and you stalk my blog like a hawk, then you may have noticed that I’ve done some updating to my page this morning. But seeing as how I JUST GOT DONE fighting with … [Read more…]

Word up, yo

Everyone has their quirks, whether we want to admit it or not. So just for funsies (and in the spirit of over-sharing), I thought I’d share some of mine with you…. At least once a week, I try to put the milk in the pantry. A lot of times when I’m cooking, I try to … [Read more…]

Horsin’ Around

Every morning I leave for work before Roman is even out of the bed. So before I walk out the door, I always kiss him on the cheek and tell him I love him. Sometimes he is able to coherently respond…other times he stays sound asleep. A couple of weeks ago, I did not have … [Read more…]

Insomnia

I have been laying here for almost an hour. Roman is asleep, and Duke is doing his little leg twitch thing he does when he’s sleeping really hard. But I can’t sleep. I’ve had a lot on my mind these past few days…I’ve been pretty restless and a wee bit cranky. I’m not even exactly … [Read more…]

Money, Clocks, and Target

Last week Roman and I visited our local Target. It is always a bad idea for me to go to Target. It is an even worse idea for me to go to Target and say, “I’m just going to look around”; yet still bring my purse and wallet inside. But in my defense, that wall … [Read more…]

Go Fish

When you have a young child, you constantly have to say things like “don’t put that in your mouth.” “Don’t put that in your mouth, it has germs on it.” “Don’t put that in your mouth, it will cut your gums.” “Don’t put that in your mouth, it’s nasty.” You get my point. But when … [Read more…]

A Cry for More

Pastor Saeed Abedini is an American citizen, but he and his wife are from Iran. Back in August, Saeed was visiting in Iran because he was working to set up a secular orphanage…he had made several trips over the past months. But on this particular trip, he was arrested and thrown in Evin Prison for … [Read more…]

Irrational Fears and Such

Like any sheltered American, I have a few irrational fears. I’ve already shared one of them with you guys in my last post…..you know, the one with my crazy dream? I am deathly afraid of being on a plane and it doing a flip mid-flight. That’s a pretty stupid fear because A) I’m too afraid … [Read more…]
