I wanted to post a few random updates while I'm thinking of them:
*The part-time job I've been doing for the past 6 weeks wraps up today. I've enjoyed the work, but am also glad it was a temporary situation. I put in a lot of extra hours last week leading up to the event we'd been planning, so it will feel nice to have a little more "down" time!
*I was recently asked if I've continued to take monthly retreats now that I have two kids. I do take them, but less frequently (about every other month)--this is something I'd like to be more consistent about. My retreats are usually shorter now (But it's amazing what even an hour can do to provide clarity and much needed peace and quiet!) and I often just hide out in our bedroom with the door closed and a fan turned on to block the noise!
*My dad is doing pretty well, and just signed up for another marathon. Praise the Lord! I definitely plan to be at the finish line--his determination is an inspiration!
*It's snow, snow, snow around these parts. Last week a radio announcer made a joke that the low that night was "warming up" to NEGATIVE 12. Yikes! Here's a pic of Nathan taken yesterday in our yard. (That is the actual amount of snow--no alterations were made in this photo!)
*Eric and Nathan had the opportunity at our church this weekend to help package food kits that will be shipped to Haiti. Nathan's continued to talk and pray about the situation there, so it was really neat that he could do something hands-on to help.
*As usual, I have lots of posts brewing in my head, but first up will be a riveting post about . . . laundry! I know the wait will be difficult. =)
Have a good week, everyone!
