The Woman Who Killed My Blog
My dear friend, Sylvia, asked me the other day, "What's up with your blog?!" Obviously, not much. And no, she's not 'the woman' to which the title refers- haha. That would be ME. Well, not me as I like to perceive myself. But that perfectionistic side of me that says, "You'll never catch up" or "You don't have anything life-changing or stunning to say" or "ad infinitum."
Truth be told, I haven't blogged since November for two reasons: 1) because I haven't had anything to say and 2) because I've had too much to say. We've been to so many funerals in the last six months that my heart felt numb. Let's leave it at the fact that they were from the age of 7 minutes to age 22. All very traumatic. Our exceptionally wonderful best friends, Brian and Paula Miller, announced their impending move to Colorado. We finally made the decision to change to a local church, (with which we are truly thrilled, I must say): The Pleasant Grove Pilgrim Nazarene Church. Driving 45 minutes to church leaves one alternately exhausted and on the fringe. Such a mix of happy things and sad things these days. Oh, a new puppy named Mitzi and a change of homeschool curriculum for Kathryn were also thrown into the mix. There is NO WAY I will ever catch up. So! I've tied the perfectionistic me up in a corner this morning, and here I am. Here is one of my favorite pictures from the last few months:
