It’s 2015

It’s January 1, 2015. I don’t think anyone except my mother still checks to see if I’m writing anymore. But one of my goals in 2015 is to write more. I have a loose outline for each week I’d like to follow; we’ll see if I can stick to it. I finished my first semester… Continue reading It’s 2015

We Live in a Selfish World

I have been alternately amused and horrified by the child ban debate. A restaurant in Monroeville, PA, close to where I used to live, has banned children under six. There are movie theaters that are banning children from certain showings. The Whole Foods in Missouri has child free shopping hours. The debates have raged online… Continue reading We Live in a Selfish World

Random Tidbits

* My 18 month old is suffering some serious sleep regression. He screams when we try to put him to bed, no matter the time of day or how exhausted he truly is. Is this separation anxiety? Stubbornness? Is he working something out? * I will take any and all advice on the previous point… Continue reading Random Tidbits

Different, but not Less Valid

Monday was a rough day in our household. I caught a terrible cold that came on suddenly after Sunday church services and ran roughshod over me until sometime Wednesday. But Monday was the worst. I was cold, achy, sneezy – everything NyQuil promises to eradicate. The worst part, though, is that I was dizzy. So… Continue reading Different, but not Less Valid

WHAT?!?!?!?!?!?!?!?!?!?!?!?!?!?!?!?!? Cult: any religion that denies the deity of Christ. Ummm…. A) I’m NOT a religion B) I don’t deny the deity of Christ Occult:… Continue reading Cult?

Privacy, Pediatricians and Pouring Out of Love

I loosened my privacy settings. My God is bigger than anything negative anyone can say to me, and my faith in Him is bigger than my fear of strangers who need Him. But I’m taking a DEEP BREATH with this, and comment moderation will be in full force. Anyway… So in the past two weeks… Continue reading Privacy, Pediatricians and Pouring Out of Love

Why I Went Private

Thank you to everyone who wanted to read my blog. I’m humbled that you would want to read what I write. Here’s the basic outline of what happened: Last Wednesday: I was attacked by a number of anonymous commenters. Many hurtful things were said. I disallowed anonymous comments, had a good cry, and thought it… Continue reading Why I Went Private

Rash of Attacks

If it’s my fault that my bloggy friends are being attacked in comments – I AM SORRY. It could be coincidence. I’d hate to think that whoever found my blog on Wednesday and posted spiteful comments then went through my blogroll spewing their venom onto those I follow – and respect – and learn from.… Continue reading Rash of Attacks
