Random Thursday

  • Thanks for all the kind words on my last post. After the fact, I realized it was more ominous than I intended. Still don't really want to go into anything until I have something more concrete to report, but suffice it to say that there are no life-or-death situations and we are all alive and well. And, of course, regardless of what the next few weeks and months bring, life goes on.

  • SoldierMan's been really awesome since receiving the disappointing news, since it affects him as well (in some ways, more. actually, in every way, more.) He's been wonderfully sympathetic, understanding and positive. I don't know what I'd do without him.

  • I've gotten way more into pinterest than I thought I would...though still not as much as some of the people I follow. Which is fine. I'm not a visual person, anyway. Which is why most of the things I've pinned haven't been pictures, they've been quotes. Such as:

    I especially like the #7s.

  • You're getting a random Thursday rather than random Friday because, obviously, tomorrow starts the long Labor Day weekend. Yay! Not that we're going anywhere. I think our only big plans are landscaping the front yard (finally! I'm sure our neighbors are thrilled) and, of course, OU FOOTBALL!!

    That's wide receiver Ryan Broyles up there. There was a fantastic article about him in the paper this week. Excerpt: "He started going to church weekly and reading the Bible regularly. He learned verses. He absorbed doctrine. He developed, as he calls it, head knowledge of God. “But I never had a relationship,” he said. “I never really put him in my soul.” All that changed in Haiti. Ryan Broyles was in one of the poorest places on the planet, and he was envious."

  • Everyone have a fantastic weekend!


  1. I've slacked off terribly with blog reading as of late. Whatever the news you receive is, I know you'll do what you can to make the best of it.

    On another note, will you hate me if I say "GO MICHIGAN!" for college football season? :D

  2. I can't wait for Saturday!!!!! =D I'm soooo excited about the game. I'm pretty sure we'll be able to watch it which makes it that much more excited. Haha. =) I love that Super Woman/Abiding Woman pin. Love it. I'm glad your medical issues aren't life-and-death but you're killing me with the lack of info. What can I say, I'm just really curious {read: nosy}. =P Happy Labor Day weekend and Boomer Sooner!

  3. I'm seeing people all over Facebook talking about Pinterest. I'm avoiding it for as long as I possibly can...I can't get addicted to anything else!!! Blogging and Facebook and the occassional Twitter...that's all I can handle!! But people seem to really like it so I may have to check it out.

  4. I haven't even looked at pinterest. I am scared I will become addicted. :-) But I am so tempted to check it out!
    I've missed chatting and keeping up with you during my blogging hiatus(es)!

  5. I love Pinterest but I only get on there for small periods of time!

  6. I love your list. Where did you get it? Do you mind if I copy and paste it? Or hang it on my bathroom mirror?

  7. Boomer Sooners!! I am super excited for the game this coming up weekend versus Florida St!! It'll be tough being in Florida, but we can do it!! The house looks good :) Have a great week! and Go OU!!
