That steamroller that left me flattened--which way did it go? Oh, there was more than one? I thought so!
Relocating, (again) holidays, wedding, and making the rounds to visit family before we are deployed again and the winter crud (cough cough cough) just about did me in. So many days without my blog friends--I was starting to twitch! That twitching enabled me to peel my flattened self up off the ground, so here I am. Did you think I just gave up the ghost? I thought about it, but life is like a good book--I want to see how it ends.
Thanks for hanging in there with me!
Yesterday I told my mother that I was ready for my life to get back to normal. She asked me if my life was ever normal. Well, okay, so it's not really. But I'm ready for it to get back to it's less hectic abnormality.
In case you were wondering, my Christmas was wonderful, I went to bed early on New Year's Eve, the wedding was absolutely beautiful, (I cried only a little--some mascara was left when the day was done) and I think I've lived through the worst of the winter-time illness that gave me laryngitis, infected sinuses, and a cough that rattles the rafters. I will probably be coughing until spring.
I've not turned on my computer in a L-O-N-G time so today my electronic buddy informed me that I had 70 something new email messages. That doesn't count the who knows how many I have not read over the past three weeks. Just a minute ago I hurriedly deleted all the ones that I knew I could live without reading and I still have 101 unread at this moment. It's not good to get so far behind. But I did finally get a chance to go through the basket of snail mail. It was nice getting to read the Christmas cards--now that Christmas 2008 is just a memory.
Today I'm going to tackle the laundry. (I think I hear another steamroller coming!) And I will start to pray for a storm. (Forgive me, but that's the only way we can keep eating ya know.) We hope to hang around here long enough to help our youngest granddaughter celebrate her first birthday, but then we need to be getting back to work. By faith and God's grace we take it one day at a time.
After I get the laundry finished and play with the girls just a little bit, I'll try to read a few blogs and work on some homework. (I'm 5 lessons behind!) Y'all can pray for me to get caught up. I remember reading a cartoon one time that said, "God put me on this earth to do a certain number of things. I'm so far behind I'll never die!" I can relate.
Now if I can dodge those steamrollers...
