Right Now

Right now

...I love hearing Josh read to the big kids.  They are falling in love with the Shire, and maybe I am too. kitchen is a mess, a good, solid, after mess.

...I can't decide if I am feeling sick, or hungry.

...I always choose to try "hungry" first.  Nothing is worse than dry heaves

....I realize that sometimes I overshare.

...My dishwasher sounds comforting.  Perhaps the sound of me not doing work is what's comforting?

...I am excited to be gathering material for a funny on purpose segment at our church's womens' event this fall

...I think trying to use apostrophes for possesive plurals is surprisingly intimidating. I hope I did it right.

...I am, shockingly, quite nervous about trying to be funny on purpose.  I guess the worst that can happen is that they won't ever ask me again :)  If all else fails, I'll just start singing like Ethel Merman.

...I'm wondering how many 30-somethings, or even 40-somethings even know who Ethel Merman is...I might need to reconsider.

...I am thankful, so thankful, that my sister has spent almost two more weeks growing her baby, and that she has been able to do it at home for the past week.  The problems remain, but bedrest is helping.  Thank you God.

...I am feeling loved by my brother who bought me flowers for Easter.  What a great guy.

...I am thankful for my other sister who calls me often on her way to work, just to say hi.

...I am amazed by my Mom, who never seems to tire from helping all of us kids.  May we rise up and call her blessed - many times over!

...I made a great I-don't-feel-like-cooking supper tonight, will post pics and a sort-of recipe soon!

...I miss my family in Botswana.  My transporter inventing isn't going as quickly as I would like.

...I miss my family in Manitoba.  My lottery winning isn't going as well as I'd like.  I hear you can't win if you don't play, so that's a bit of a problem.

...I miss my family in Chilliwack, even.  Do you sense a theme?

...I am excited for friends who are going on a huge life changing adventure.  I think they are brave.  I am proud of them, in so many ways:  for their faith, for their adventurousness, for the way they raise their many things.  And when they move, I will add them to list of people I miss.

...I wonder if I ever wrote a book, what the subject would be.

...I wonder if that last sentence should have had a question mark. Clearly I am plagued by grammatical uncertainties.

...I am thankful that we have a whole host of friends who are like family.  So many good memories, so many more to come.

And that's all I have to say about that.


  1. This might be one of my favourite posts of yours. So many funny tidbits. Like your use of the apostrophe...and possessive plural apostrophe usage always beats making plurals with a misplaced one!
    Love it.
