So, I’ve split my blog into two and moved over to Blogger.
I’ve still got work to do on moving things over that I want moved over, so give me some grace.
I got up at 6 this morning but had 4 loads of laundry in a big mound on my table that needed to be folded and put away as well as some work to finish up so blogging just wasn’t on the priority list. Now that Jacob is awake and watching the dogs play, I have little time to get something up.
I’m thinking about starting another blog- I know! Sounds crazy since I can’t keep this one up to date some weeks. However, I want to split this blog into two blogs, basically. I want a blog solely dedicated to projects and another one that’s more personal. As I’ve been going back through posts, I was reminiscing about where I was this week two years ago and also last year.
Two years ago, I blogged about sleeping in until 9 am (my how times have changed!) and my little brother Zac had shot me point blank in the eye with a pellet gun. You’ll be happy to know that I’ve had no lingering effects from that injury. I also brought home 1,000 worms from a church event for Jim’s garden. Ew. The Rangers were going to their first World Series and this year, baseball season is over as far as I’m concerned. I’m rooting for Detroit from afar in the championship game simply because the Giants beat us two years ago.
Last year, I made my own laundry soap for the first time and I haven’t purchased a bottle of detergent since. I was pregnant and busy planning for Mr. Jacob’s arrival. That doesn’t seem like much, but it was a lot of work!
This week, I’m watching my almost 9 month old play in his saucer, have been up since 6 am getting as much done as I could before Jacob got up, not watching Rangers on TV, and Jim has basically let his garden go.
My how times have changed! But, I wouldn’t trade any of it.
This weekend, I:
There was lots more that happened, but these are the highlights. It was such a good weekend.
Just some random updates from my life this past week…
It’s been over a year since I’ve posted a “For Now” post. Whoa-
Book I’m currently reading: I’m not currently reading a book- I am involved in a Precepts Bible Study and have to prepare each week for a small group so I am reading, just not for “fun” really.
Something I’m saving up for: We’re still trying to pay off debt. There are few projects we need to get done around the house (fixing our burned fence and replacing our tub surround).
Something I’ve accomplished: Getting a mentor program for our college students off the ground and running. I’ve had lots of help, so it’s not ALL me, but we’ve paired up some folks and have a list of more to get with someone. Super exciting. I am passionate about the disciple/mentor relationship because it has been instrumental in making me who I am.
Favorite Recent Purchase: Hmm…nothing is coming to mind.
Current Excitement: Throwing a shower for one of my best friends this weekend!
