We're In for It

Snow storm #259 is heading this way.  "They" say it will dump freezing rain and ice and then 12-18 inches of snow on top of that.  *sigh*

I'm dreaming of a warm summer.  Lounging by the pool, not having to worry about bundling yourself and your children up for the sake of their life, just to go to the store.  I find falling snow very exciting, but I find old snow that just lays around and covers up the ground for weeks on end not so fun.

And given that our last snow of 10 inches or so has been around for over a week, I predict that this latest wave should be melted off by June.

It' 47 days until spring.

I do hope to get out in this snow with my kids and make snow angels and build snow forts until nobody can feel their toes and hands anymore (which will probably last for all of 20 minutes.)  While we're out there though, I will take some pictures to document it for the season that we will look back on this fondly.... maybe when I'm a grandma???

I've Kinda Forgotten

I've forgotten many things concerning this blog.  I've forgotten how to write in coherent thought processes...  I've forgotten how to type without making tons of errors it seems... and I no longer have any topic that I am dying to discuss or monologue about.  My life seems rather hum-drum, so-so, and altogether ordinary. 

I didn't start this to build a readership.  I started this to document my kiddos - the quirky things they say, the fun stuff they do, the infuriating habits they form - you know stuff like that.  But now I feel rather guilty going on and on about them... especially the older ones; they are more aware of what is said about them.

So, that's basically why I haven't posted for quite some time.  It's because I no longer have a real goal or purpose... but I may change that soon.  We'll see.

I Really Am Trustworthy

So yeah, it's been a couple of weeks now since I've posted, and that after a promise of more to come.  Not nice.  But I don't think my readership is large enough for this to be a huge issue.

Here's where I am with the read through the Bible thing... I'm still doing it, but I'm behind schedule.  Now I could offer you lots of excuses, but here's the main issue.  I need something deeper this time.

I read through the Bible a year ago and I had sooooo many questions while I was reading... but I brushed them aside and kept on keeping on because I had that deadline to meet.  Well, this time around?  I read through the Bible and all these questions come right back and this time they nag at me a little more and it's harder for me to just brush right past them in order to stay on a timeline.  So instead I've been digging a bit more.  And the stuff is a little too... uhh... I don't know the word... maybe a combination of personal, boring, time-consuming to just sit down and type, type, type out all the stuff that I'm finding out.

I haven't been too motivated to come on here and update because it seems that I'm the only one on this little quest right now and so I'd rather just take my time with it.  But I'm still reading, honest.

I'm also trying to figure out a good method/program/process to get some Bible study into my kids' day-to-day lives.  I'm researching different subjects, ideas, strategies... and trying to figure out what will fit us best.

I need to start personalizing a few things for my family a bit more - and become more strong-willed when it comes to teaching them.  I've compromised a bit too much here recently and it's time to shift the focus before we run into an iceberg or something catastrophic like that.

So always know that I'm here and I'm still plugging along and I hope you are too.  I still am unsure of what the purpose of this blog is - if anything I guess its the place that I come a ramble out the thoughts that are in my head... and for that I am truly sorry.

So keep digging and keep reading and I hope to as well!
