Thursday, July 26


Hi! I'm still here. I haven't had a lot to share with the world lately. Adam's still out of work. We're still waiting on God's perfect timing for growing our family. I guess I feel like I haven't been doing anything much exciting.

Monday, however, we did have a radical change in the household. Our lovely, too-smart-for-her-own-britches daughter learned how to open the bedroom door. Bye-bye privacy. Actually, she hasn't abused her new power too much the past few days. But, quite frankly, we're running out of places to hide child-unfriendly items like scissors, knitting needles, permanent-ink pens.... Anybody have some unusual ideas?

Our VCR died a couple of weeks ago. I'm very bummed. I may not have ever mentioned, but I have a pretty large movie collection. I haven't counted lately (especially with the tapes and DVDs scattered around the living room floor like they are), but I'm sure it's over 100. Most of them are VHS, though. Sigh.

Life hasn't been completely boring. I did get invited to a baseball game this past week. I went with a couple of girlfriends (two of my prayer partners, who are also my daughter's godmothers) and we had a good time laughing and cheering and gabbing. Our team lost, but it was still fun to be there. Now, if anybody wants to send over some free football tickets...just make sure you include a free parking permit, too, though. I was looking at stadium parking on-line the other day--how can they get away with charging $30 a car for game day parking? That's after paying $65 a piece for the cheap seats!! Maybe there's a reason I've never been to a live NFL game.

Well, enough late night rambling from me. May your days be merry and bright (and may all your Christmases-in-July


  1. Good to hear from you again - I've been wondering how you were doing!

  2. Amy--

    Oh good, you're still there!

    Scissors and permanent markers here are kept in a mug inside one of my kitchen cabinets, where only the big kids and I can reach them easily.

    You're on your own with the knitting needles!

    Praying for you guys...I know how hard limbo and waiting are!


  3. I understand what you are going through with the privacy thing. Our daughter has learned to do this as well. I keep all the things I don't want her to get up and out of sight. (like in a tall kitchen cabinet or on top of the frige.

  4. I keep my scissors in a kitchen cabinet that my kids can't reach..tho this is more so I can always find them, the kids will lose them. When our kids were little, I didn't have perm. markers in the house, only washable ones. If they weren't washable..I pitched them.

    the game sounded like so much fun!
