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… know, the one with my crazy dream?

Not sure where it was (sorry!), … [Read more…]


It’s the end of 2012 and the beginning of 2013….which can only mean one thing: the world did not implode on December 21st, 2012. It also means that I should clean my house again, since I stopped cleaning it several weeks ago due to the impending end of the world. Ha. Only kidding. But I … [Read more…]

A Whole Lotta Weird

This post could be potentially lame or potentially hilarious or both at the same time. I recommend having some chocolate while reading….but not a glass of milk. The chocolate will make it less lame…and the milk might come out of your nose. Or it may not. Who knows? I’m not the boss of you….so eat … [Read more…]

There Are No Words…..

I jokingly call my pets my children, but I know that it is not the same. So I don’t write this post from the perspective of a mother who will get off work and go spend time with her children. I won’t pretend to know what it is like to carry and give birth to … [Read more…]
