Project 52: Would You Rather?

This past Friday, we took a jaunt across the state to pick up our things that have been stored in our wonderful neighbor's house for the past year.  Yes, it has actually been a year since we left Port Huron and now, all our junk is back together, well, at least the junk we decided to keep.  I was tired, even though all I had done all day was ride in the truck, talk with a wonderful woman, and eat delicious Chinese food.  Needless to say, I did not have my most creative night of date.  This seems to be a theme for me.  I need to get off my tuckus and get to work on this whole date thing! 
This is what we ended up doing.  Joel went and got us some frozen coffee drinks from McDonald's which sadly to say are just as good as Starbucks. (That's sad because Starbucks is in the coffee business and McDonald's is supposed to be in the burger business. But it appears that neither of them do their job well. I did read once however that they are both just in the real estate business, meaning it's not their product but their location that draws people into their establishments.  I'm inclined to believe that.)
We played Would You Rather from Simply Modern Mom.  It was a fun night.  The best one was actually an impromptu response to a scenario that Joel pulled "jump out of a fast moving bus" and I said in response "spend a day stuck in a bus with Keanu Reeves"  HA!  If you haven't seen the movie, don't!

I'm off, I have a little girl with a headache that threw up last night and a cat that appears to be suffering from intestinal issues.  Currently, he's laying in the shower and she is laying in my bed.  It should be a fun day.

The Bottom of the Pool by Andy Andrews

Y'all know that I'm a big Andy Andrews fan, so I was very excited to read his latest, The Bottom of the Pool. The best way that I can describe this book is like sitting down with your friend and they remind you how it is. It's not like Andy is hawking some secret voodoo send me $5 and you'll get $5000 in the mail next week black magic. He's sharing the truth. And the truth is that if you're dealing with an obstacle in your life, there's a big possibility that you're thinking about it all wrong.

This relatively quick read is jam-packed full of good stuff. There are interesting stories about historical figures but the main story that runs throughout the book is one of a childhood friend. Andy's friend did something extraordinary one summer afternoon that illustrates how we can break out of cycles hold us back from achieving what we are created to do. Without telling you exactly what Andy has to share in this book, it might feel like it's some mag…

Saturday Rant: Dominoes

I always find it interesting how life can be very much so like dominoes sometimes. Let's see, my husband went out of town this last fall. I volunteered to preach for him while he was gone. I told a friend about the online copy of the sermon. She forwarded it to a few folks, next thing you know, I'm doing a short testimony at my weekly Bible study. What I'm really wondering it "What next?"

You see, when I got done preaching, and my husband came back into town, we talked about how people reacted to the sermon. Then we talked some more when I was asked to share again. And the question was, maybe I'm supposed to be open to talking more often.

To be honest, I haven't done a lot of talking in groups since I had a really bad experience a few years ago. I was always opinionated, in fact I still am. I have lots of opinions about most everything from how warm my house should be to which way the car should take me from point a to b. But I found myself in a group of …

Murder, Motherhood, and Miraculous Grace by Debra Moerke

Y'all know that I love a good murder mystery, especially when it's based on a true story. Unfortunately, this is one of the most heartbreaking true stories that I've read.

This is the true story of a foster family and not just any foster family, this was the teach others how to do it foster family. They took all the tough cases and kept larger families together. They knew how to foster kids. This story is about a specific family of several kids that came into their care when their single mother ran into some problems with the law.

There was one little girl from the displaced family, Hannah, found a very special place in their hearts. It became clear during their time together that Hannah was not treated the same as her siblings by her birth mother, Karen. She showed fear and the other children distanced themselves from her. When it came time to return to live with their birth mother, Hannah begged to stay with the Moerke family. The Moerkes did all they could to keep tabs…
