Odds and Ends

So, some days I feel like I've lost my mind.  I don't know what it has been about January (I'm blaming it on January), but I feel like I've had to do a complete life purge.  I've gone through closets, cleaned out and organized cabinets, gotten rid of so much junk and tried to get a little more order in our days. Yet, I still feel I can do more of that.  I forgot what my resolutions were (eat better?  read more?  pray more?  worry less?).  Obviously, I'm doing well, ha!

But, I think there will always be a part of me that feels I need to do.  This article was on someone's Facebook yesterday.  I didn't read it all, but what I did resonated.  It isn't good to just fill our days with more, more, more.  Yet, I do.  So, here's an update - it's random:

- I took this lovely lady's bridals a few weeks ago...
 and then, her wedding on Friday.
- Sophie did not escape the copious amount of spit-up that every single one of her siblings have had. When we're out in public, many inform me that my baby has just thrown-up.  Nope...but she does often look like this...
- Speaking of always having something on your face, I caught John Paul scooping out bean dip with his hands last night as I was preparing a few nachos.  He got a third of a can eaten, and his nose shows the evidence.
- Carter and Peter do this lately when I pull out the camera.  Lovely.

- Our sweet little cousins visited yesterday.  
It looks like he might have stolen a toy of Sophie's?

These two are just five months apart.

- This blog has been not-too-interesting lately.  

- But, on a really exciting front, the Blessed Is She Lenten journals are now on sale!  If you enjoyed your Advent one (or weren't able to order one then), grab yourself one before Ash Wednesday!

I took my blog buttons off the sidebar to create a cleaner look.  I'm still not finished with it, but I'm creating a Blog Roll instead.  Any favorite blogs you read that I should look into?  I'm anxious to get the page up!

Thanks for all of the book suggestions on the good ol' FB page - maybe I'll get one read by this time next year :)  Maybe.


  1. I laughed at those faces your boys were making... I'm sure that my little guy will do that someday too. Ha, ha. Oh, boys!! :)
    And at least you made resolutions for the new year, even if you can't remember them. I didn't make one!! I've decided that I just took January off, and I plan to make some to start in February. ;)
