Friday~November 20th, 2009
I don’t want to rush my children through their childhood. But man, I want to sleep later in the morning. You know, later than say, 5ish.
I don’t know Anissa Mayhew like so many of my blog friends do, but I’m still praying for her because that’s what happens in this community. I’m blown away by Annisa’s strength and vibrancy. She’s touched my heart this week and I’ll continue to pray for her and her family. (Anissa is a 35 year old mother, wife, and blogger who suffered two strokes this week and remains in the ICU. You can read more from her husband today at Hope 4 Peyton)
Have you heard about Christmas Change? I mentioned recently that Seth and Amber Haines had something exciting up their sleeves, and Christmas Change is it! If you’re looking for ways to share in the giving of the Christmas season by offering more to the poor and in need around you, this is the place to go. You can choose a way to give this year and then share your story on the site. It’s a beautiful thing. Check it out and be inspired.
OK, so we close on our current house on December 29th. We’re still in dealings with the seller of the house we have a purchase agreement on. The inspection revealed some major things that need to be updated. You know, major as in replacing the roof and the garage foundation. Spendy stuff. Stuff we didn’t know about when we made our offer. I bring this up because I mentioned it in a recent post and have gotten emails asking if everything has worked out. Just wanted to say we won’t know for quite a few days because of the back and forth of paperwork and such. Thank you for caring and for asking and for crossing all your fingers and toes and sending good thoughts and praying for us. It’s a stressful time.
I’ll definitely let you all know when we know you know so you know you know…
Asher is doing an excellent job of keeping his glasses on. He’s a total rock star, that kid.
I went out to dinner last night with Susan, her mom, and a whole load of their friends. It was the loveliest time. I love being with other women, sharing our stories and laughing. There’s nothing that’s the same kind of beautiful in life.
And tonight, I get to head out with Sabrina, Kelly and Sarah. We’re going to opening night of New Moon. Maybe some of you would be excited about that, or maybe you’re going to the movie too because you love Edward or Jacob? I have to confess that the only reason we are excited is because we find it to be an absolutely hilarious and intriguing study in human behavior, this crazy Twilight phenomenon.
Remember how I mentioned the possibility of a Midwestern bloggy gathering? Well, myself and a few others have been working hard on making it happen. So it will! If you’re interested in going, put a big heart (or something) across January 9th and 10th of 2010. It will be here before you know it. We’re currently working on a site that will give you all the details. That should be finished in about a week, so be on the look out! I’m truly excited about this, and would absolutely love to meet you, even if I don’t know you. So please feel welcome if you’d like to come. We decided to call this get-together CUPCAKE ’10, and although that may sound a bit foo foo fluffy, it is and it isn’t. I’ll be explaining the title on the new site coming soon. Feel free to ask questions in the comments or via email at fullcircle(underscore)doula(at)yahoo(dot)com
Peace to you today.
