Monday, but not stormy...

Lately, I have really been giving serious thought to a future beyond the
next six months. I feel like Jon's career may soon really be settling
in, and then it will be my turn. I want to have a "plan" for this
eventuality. I have been putting ideas into categories, too.
Like, "dream", "doable", and "settling". As I process these ideas, I
really am counting on God to open my eyes and my heart to new

So, as I undertake this "what do I want to be when I grow up?" phase, I
want to keep sight of a few truths:
1. My husband and our family (of two or how ever many we end up as)
remains my priority.

2. I am confident that whatever God has in store for me will leave room
for truth number one.

3. I must hold on to myself, and not "become" what I choose.

Ok, that being said, I am off to process!

Peace and Prayers,

Well, I am trying out a new thing-- it is called actually writing on a regular basis. We'll see how long THAT lasts, eh? It will at least make it one day!

I have been overcome by Olympic Fever. There is no known cure, and it can only be treated with megadoses of cathode-ray tube exposure. The good news is that this virus runs its course in about 16 days or so, leaving its victims with no long-term damage.

I find myself saying things like, "Wow, that was a great routine, but the dismount did nothing for me. Did you see that hop-step? Tsk, tsk!" I am also developing weird crushes on beautiful looking young men at whom I would ordinarily not even glance twice. It's just the whole moment-of-glory effect.

Ah well, this too shall pass. In the meantime, it's back to the couch and those women's gymnatics scores!
