IPod Touch Blogging

Oh man, you would not believe the amount of available blog apps there are for the IPod Touch! I'm trying my best not to spend any money on them, so we'll have to see how the free ones pan out. If you see anything crazy here in the next couple of weeks, now you'll know why!

Eat Pray Love

Or is it Love Pray Eat?  I don't remember.  Last night I went out with a few friends and we watched the Julia Roberts movie based on the book.  I did not like the book, couldn't stand to read about her love affair with this guy that she basically ran to when she no longer wanted to be married.  Luckily, the movie didn't really get into all of that, in fact, the movie focused more on the journey that she took to discover herself.  I told Joel that the movie was like Darjeeling Limited for ladies, though I am a little more partial to the guys from Darjeeling than I am to the cast of Eat Love Pray. 
The scenery was beautiful and I was thankful to see escape into it for almost two hours.  The story line took a bit of a second show in regards to the countries that were explored, and that could just be my viewing.  I was struck by the desire to travel and to write about the places I go and was haunted by Nate in the stories I have started about him and his life.  I think maybe …

Let's Do Lunch by Roger Troy Wilson

Hi, my name is Tina and I am a recovering diet addict. My first official one started in the 8th grade and all the fat ladies at Weight Watchers told me how much they wish they could have done this at my age. The addiction went downhill from there. Even though I could see that manipulating food could produce weight loss, I bought in hook line and sinker. I came to the proper conclusion when confronted with scripture on the subject. This is a book review, so enough of the confessions and on to my latest read “Let’s Do Lunch” by Roger Troy Wilson.



Wilson weighed in excess of 400 pounds and discovered a way to eat as much as he wants and loose weight. That eating plan is laid out in “Let’s Do Lunch.” The majority of the book is Wilson’s personal story of loss and gain, as well as recipes that adhere to the “Let’s Do Lunch” eating plan. Chapters 2-6 are the plan itself and the reader is encouraged time and again to read those four chapters three times.
This book is easy to read and the eat…

Thankful Thursday

Thursday is one of those wonderful days of the week.  Thursday can go by so quickly, because it has already proclaimed that the majority of the week has occurred and thus the only thing standing between you and the beloved Friday is one measly day.

This Thursday, I am especially thankful for...

the pool.  Which has been wonderful this summer, with it's just right temperatures and the fact that someone else cleans it for us. 

my sweet husband.  He's been doing a great job of providing and caring for Hannah and I.   He's wonderful in every aspect.

medication.  Currently, I'm taking some that are helping with some problems I've been having for the past couple of years and they are working.  I just feel like that is a huge blessing and I almost gave up on them.

my darling little girl.  Today, we are doing what she wants to do.  So far we have had an adventure at the grocery store, eaten chocolate waffles with way too much syrup, been to the park, dropped by the libra…

Project 52: Bible Study

I don't remember how it got started, but we sat and listened to music for quite awhile last Friday and then Joel decided, that they thing he wanted to do was have a little Bible study.  It was nice to sit and read scripture together.  I'm not sure if this is going to be a regular thing, but it was a welcomed change of pace.

Though I am really struggling with staying excited about date night and making sure that it doesn't just turn into us watching shows at night, is getting harder and harder to do.  It could just be the summer and the busier schedule that we have right now, but I would have thought that it would be easier to come up with date ideas in the summer.

We have come to the conclusion that trading off months of planning doesn't work, mainly because one of us does not end up planning an entire months worth and thinks the month is always over before it is.  After loosing track of who was in charge and floundering over whose night it is to plan, we have dropped …
