Let the Games begin!

5...4...3...2...1...RELAX! I am in Texas for my annual Girls Weekend with friends that I have known for 20 years and I couldn't be happier. We get together on the same weekend every year and I always look forward to it. It's hours and hours of talking, eating, cooking, movies, reading, sleeping, photo-taking and best all, LAUGHING! I am so thankful for these women who love the Lord and faithfully serve Him. They are such an inspiration to me! My life is so very blessed for knowing them!

"I have thoughts..."

I had to play for worship team yesterday so I made chocolate covered strawberries to share with everyone in honor of Valentine's Day. Yummy!

I love the line from "Julie & Julia" where Julie is talking about starting a blog and is defending her intentions to her husband when she says, "I could write a blog. I have thoughts." Classic! So anway....the cold weather this winter is starting to wear on me. I keep hearing from the locals that this is the coldest winter they can remember. Well then, I'm so glad that I could be here for it! Yes, I grew up in North Dakota but somehow that hasn't endowed me with the super power of internal warmth. I'm ready for spring!

The Sound of Silence

I always enjoy Monday mornings because of the blanket of silence that falls over the house after the kids head off to school. The effect has only been magnified after being housebound with said kids for the entire weekend. My nerves have been stretched like rubber bands from listening to "I'm bored", "He's bothering me", "He won't let me play the Wii", and the inevitable bumps and bruises that come from rough-housing. Calgon, take me away! I'm off to drink a cup of coffee...Mommy's little helper!

My brain hurts! I am trying to get a blog up and running but I am so overwhelmed by all the details. The longest journey begins with a single step so here goes.
