anyone out there?

I realized this week as I waited very impatiently for a blog I follow to update that there are most likely people out there who are chopping at the bone for me to update.

I actually know that that is a lie. And no one is waiting on egg shells to find out what is going on in our lives, but one of these days I'm going to get back into the habit of blogging more frequently. And hopefully that day will be sometime soon.

Today has been a unbelievably productive day. Especially for me. And a Saturday. Or a weekend for that matter. While it was probably the least fun activity for a Friday night, Cody had a huge paper to write so I cleaned the bathrooms and organized the closet. Definitely not something I would normally do on a Friday night, but it sure felt good to get a jump start on getting the house back together.

This morning was spent doing laundry, dusting, and grocery shopping. All daily, mundane activities, but it felt so good to have time for normal activities after a few months of traveling. Last week finished up my portion of travel season, so I am thankful that I will be staying in the big city of Abilene for a while. Perfect timing too. There's only 5 weeks left in the semester, which means its crunch time for grad students. Cody has about 14 papers due within the next 12 days. Horrible. We're trying to slowly keep chugging and make it through the next couple of weeks and hopefully come out with good grades too!

We ended October with a bang, as my older brother Nathan proposed to his girlfriend Kaitlan. It will take a whole post to explain the great detail he put into the proposal. They set a date this past week and will be getting married July 10, which in only 5 days after the best wedding date I know :) I don't know if its going to help my parents remember our wedding dates or just confuse them because they're so close! Either way, I am super excited to gain another great sister in law! She's looking at plum and mustard gold for wedding colors which I know will turn out beautiful!

Have yall been watching The Biggest Loser? Oh my. I'm not sure I can take any more emotional episodes. I am getting some great spiritual material out of this season. Next time I preach be prepared for a Biggest Loser clip!

That's about all I know for now. I'm ready to veg out in front of the tv. To jump back into my day, after the laundry, dusting, and grocery shopping, I cleaned the kitchen, baked a cake, painted 2 pieces of very *detailed* furniture, made taco soup and the best corn bread ever, and then had to clean the kitchen up again. Whew. I am tired! I'm off to reward myself by looking at craft blogs and getting ready for SNL! Have a great Sunday!

  1. I, for one, am always waiting on egg shells to find out what's going on in your lives.

    So thank you... Now I just need to figure out where all these egg shells came from...
