Drugged musings

Pet peeve: When people say "I hope they get better" when one of your kids is sick. This cracks me up and I usually respond with "Yeah. Me too. Because if he doesn't, the alternative is kind of depressing." Add the word "soon" to the end of that sentence next time you're tempted to use it people. I hope you get better soon. Otherwise, you're basically just saying "I hope you don't die."

Guilty blogging? Sometimes I see something I think "Oooh - I need to blog this!" because I'm excited about journaling and sharing it. Other times I think "Ugh - I really should blog this" because I haven't blogged much lately and if I'm going to keep any kind of audience, I need to blog on a more regular basis. But really, if I'm blogging out of guilt, who wants to read that anyway? In all honesty, I'm not a happy blogger lately. I've got projects and ideas in my head and it just seems like one more thing I need to do but am failing at. Still doing it though.

Guilt avoidance - Chris and I have been discussing prayer and repentance lately and realized that we've both fallen into a pattern of avoiding intimacy with God because...if you don't ask for His direction, you aren't disobeying by not doing it. Sure, we're good little Christians, not disobeying God...but that's just because we're being careful to leave our earplugs in when we skirt worship. I have no idea why, but "I fell in to a burnin' ring of fire" running through my head. I'm not a huge Johnny Cash fan, but that line is stuck in my head (not the rest of the song) and basically what I'm trying to say is that God is calling me to an on-my-face repentance and I want to fall into that ring of fire - intimate worship. And breath-by-breath, step-by-step obedience.

And on that note, I'm due for another dose of percocet. Did you know that by day 3, the swelling is at it's worst? I am a goofy looking chipmunk. And today, it actually hurts. I've had it easy till now. And all in all, it's still not bad. But ugh. It's not what I'd call fun either.

I really think a picture would have helped us understand your pain.

I hope you feel better SOON.

I am glad I am not the only one with that pet peeve!!!

And yes, I also think a picture is in order.

I am glad you are blogging, even if it is a guilt post LOL

Commenting on several posts at once:
I'm sorry to hear about your grandma, Jenn! What a blessing to have such an amazing woman in your life and that she lived to share her wisdom with you for so long.

I would have been a complete wreck about the paint, the poo, and everything else. You did so much better than I would have. What sweet boys you have to try to fix it for you like that. That just makes it all worthwhile doesn't it?

"In all honesty, I'm not a happy blogger lately. I've got projects and ideas in my head and it just seems like one more thing I need to do but am failing at. Still doing it though."
Uh, yeah. Me too. And maybe some of that in the next paragraph as well. I suppose instead of wallowing in self pity because I don't know what direction to take I could ask The One Who Knows Best. Duh.
