~ why do I want to be liked even if it is by someone I don’t really respect?
~ why do I have to understand “where someone is coming from”?
~ why can’t I leave well enough alone?
~ why must I open my mouth and insert my foot (repeatedly)?

And if any place will not welcome you or listen to you, shake the dust off your feet when you leave, as a testimony against them. ~ Mark 6:11


Then Peter came to Jesus and asked, “Lord, how many times shall I forgive my brother when he sins against me? Up to seven times?” Jesus answered, “I tell you, not seven times, but seventy-seven times.” ~ Matthew 18:21-22

Holidays Shmolidays

Because of holidays past, I refuse to get up in a roar about the ensuing holidays. I feel like God is trying to tell me something. Let’s pretend that I’m the Ghost of Christmas Past and I’ll guide you through my past holidays (*warning it isn’t pretty):

* I know I haven’t updated my vacation pics. I just don’t have the energy. I’m still jetlagged and…
* I tried to wean myself off my anti-depressants and could not do it. I had a panic attack almost every day. Not to mention I was highly distracted and felt as though I were wearing my nerves outside my skin. So I’m back on meds again and they’ve not kicked in yet.
* Oh, and the oldest grumpy child starts kindergarten Monday. Mommy is a tad stressed about that. How will he do in all-day kindergarten? Will he drive his teachers insane? Will he go insane? Will he miss me so madly that he cries for me all day? I doubt it, but I’m worrying nonetheless.
*More random thoughts later.

Don’t break the elastic

My elastic is wearing thin. I’ll fill you in later. Just enjoy the words of Maya Angelo for now.

Don’t Break The Elastic
by Maya Angelou
When I was in my younger days,
I weighed a few pounds less,
I needn’t hold my tummy in to wear a belted dress. But now that I am older,
I’ve set my body free;
There’s the comfort of elastic
Where once my waist would be.
Inventor of those high-heeled shoes
My feet have not forgiven;
I have to wear a nine now,
But used to wear a seven.
And how about those pantyhose-
They’re sized by weight, you see,
So how come when I put them on
The crotch is at my knee?
I need to wear these glasses
As the print’s been getting smaller;
And it wasn’t very long ago
I know that I was taller.
Though my hair has turned to gray
and my skin no longer fits,
On the inside, I’m the same old me,
It’s the outside’s changed a bit.

marking time

I’m just marking time till our vacation. I’m still not feeling great, but better than I was this weekend. I spent the majority of the time hugging my heating pad, reading and watching sappy movies. My husband is pretty good about letting me rest when I’m sickly. I’d just like to know why is it that nothing gets done when I’m sickly?! No dishes. No laundry. Nothing. It would almost make more sense to not rest because once I’m better I have to hustle to get the apartment tidied up again. And I’ve lowered my standards quite a bit so it’s not like he’d have to do much. But no. Apparently I am the only one who knows how to keep the place semi-tidy. I’m slowly trying to get things back together, but I’d really like to take a nap.

my last 30 years

In less than a month I’ll be turning the big 3-0! I’m not looking forward to it, but I’ve been contemplating this quote that my friend Pattie has on her email signature line:

There is no character in women’s faces before the age of 30.– Honore de Balzac

Expect more contemplative thoughts on the end of a decade.
