Well folks, it's been a while since I've written anything here. As I sit down to break my dry spell I'm noticing some things.
~ My internet connection is acting s-l-o-w and I'm wondering if I can be patient enough to continue this post while the letters on the screen catch up to my typing.
~Next to me is a book that seemed to show up out of no where. Jane Eyre. Then I remembered that I read that about 4 years ago. I also remember breathing a sigh of relief at a PTA meeting when we went around the room and had to answer the question, "Did you read any good books this summer?" I was so glad I didn't have to respond with Bear Snores On.
~I'm sitting in my living room feeling blessed as I look at our "new" piano, given to us by my mother in law. Oh, the history behind this 100+ year old grand. She reminded me that it was on my second date with Bill on Christmas Eve that I first "met" this piano, along with his entire family as they sang carols around it.
~We had a snow day today. Matthew was supposed to make his First Reconciliation tonight but early in the day the phone rang. It was an automated call from the Director of Religious Education cancelling. I was upstairs when the voicemail came across the machine. As the call ended, all I could hear was Matthew running around downstairs wooo-hoooing his way from room to room. To say he was thrilled is an understatement.
~Two things I think should be banned. Twitter and 24 hour news channels. No one wants to hear anyone talk so much. Yet, I'm addicted to both. The devil is real, people*. And yes, if you're on Twitter, I've probably stalked you.
~Regarding the above, I don't tweet much or email CNN, but in my mind I come up with plenty of retorts that do nothing but increase my blood pressure---probably good that there's been radio silence here on the blog. That may end soon because I do have some titles that you may see in future posts.
The Devil Is Real, People*

God Is Bigger Than Your Fear

~Maybe this post should have been titled Random Thoughts or Just Letting You Know I'm Alive.
