Quit Hitting Me With Your GIANT Handbag!! Friday, Jan 22 2010 


THERE! I said it!

Giant handbags are “IN” right now and seems like most women have one (or one in each color). I don’t carry one because I would turn into the MOM pack mule, it’s not my style.

I understand that YOU might want to carry a GIANT handbag but seriously.. (more…)

The Earth Spins Faster Inside My Bathtub Thursday, Jan 21 2010 


Really it does! I’m sure of it.

For many women, the bathtub is a refuge especially if they have kids. Even before I had kids there were times when I would come home from a hard day at work, grab a glass of wine, light up some candles and pour myself a hot bubble bath and then melt inside of it.

It seems that people know not to disturb people in the bathtub. When I had a room-mate, she would let me chill when she heard the tub running.. she knew the international signal for “I want so peace”. (The other symbol was the glass of wine I would pour before I even sat down after I walked in from work). The kids hear my bath and they know not to knock on the door (I can’t even get that for anything else in the bathroom!!)… the bath is a place for me to re-group.

Serving in the Church. Saturday, Jan 9 2010 


If you have ever attended any sort of christian church for any length of time, you most likely have been asked to “serve” in the church. There are many areas for people to serve.. but … not really. There seems to be 4 major areas that you can serve in; worship (ushering, working the sound board, behind the scenes making sure things go smoothly), welcoming (greeters, bulletin passer outers, refreshment managers etc), set up (those churches who meet in buildings they don’t own and have to set up for all the glitz and glam band shows) and childrens ministries.Ya might even have some missions in there somewhere…

No one job is more important than another, these tasks are all needed to make a traditional service happen. People are needed to run these areas, and they should if that is what they desire.

Many people feel that they would like to serve in some way… some even feel guilty when they don’t “serve” in the way the church is set up. So what should someone do when they don’t haveĀ  a desire to serve in those areas? (more…)

How did the FSU Seminoles beat the WVa Mountaineers in the Gator Bowl? Tuesday, Jan 5 2010 


Bobby Bowden has been the coach for the Florida State Football team since 1976. He started coaching the season before my family moved from Tallahassee to South GA. My dad was finishing his senior year at FSU when Bobby came along (they are almost the same age).

Although my dad doesn’t like football, the rest of my family enjoys it. (more…)
