(A Random Post)

I know I have been missing lately - life is just a little...well, wild.

I am up to my eyeballs in laundry. But don't worry, I have more help than I need...

And I thought of taking a little bloggy break...just cause life is a little out of control...

But then who would appreciate the fact that I got pulled over yesterday, just so the Police Officer could tell me my front license plate was missing?

And who would really appreciate the fact that he pulled me over for just that, and not the fact that I was going like 72mph instead of 65?

(Maybe I was going 77.)

(Alright, I was definitely going 77.)

(And for future reference, please don't pull me over while the babies are sleeping...taking away from the few quite moments in my day....thankyouverymuch)

Sorry, I value my quiet time.

If I didn't blog, who would I tell about the old lady at Trader Joe's yesterday that asked me if I was running a nursery?

Who would laugh with me about these things!?

You ladies keep me sane, and keep me laughing. (and I really love to laugh) I love getting my thoughts out here. It's therapeutic - even if they don't make sense sometimes :).

Speaking of babies, don't you just want to squeeze this little love??? Yum.

In other news, I've been thinking that maybe I should get over myself and just accept our situation. It's not like it will last forever...even though it feels that way sometimes. Maybe I should believe what I say when I say that this is God's plan for our family - His perfect plan for this season in our life. You know, because it's a lot easier to just get on board w/ His plan than to try to make my own...my plans have holes and selfish demands.

But I just want find a house...I miss our home, Lord!!!

Ahem, Humility isn't easy, people.

I need to listen to Him more. Listening to myself talk all day is exhausting.

(even though I do make myself laugh at times.)

(and unless of course I'm talking into a Starbucks speaker ordering a Tall Skinny Peppermint Mocha. That talking is beautiful and beneficial....and delicious.)

So anyways, that's what we've been up to the past few days. Business as usual.

(if you consider living with this sweet little thing "usual".)


Hope you all are having a fabulous week!

Oh ... Peppermint Mocha ...

I'm missing the amazing coffee shops we had in our "old town". There are only 2 on our new little island ... and neither of them are quite what we're looking for in coffee shops.

I think my sweet husband and I are going to buy a high quality espresso machine for each other for Christmas. Yummm ... Peppermint Mocha ... can't wait!

mama of many :)

At least the nice policeman didn't give you a ticket! I too go for drives hoping for some quiet time and sanity :) Oh Kate, I for one would completely understand... but miss you terribly!!!... if you took a blogging break. Hang in there friend and know you are being prayed for!

Mm, peppermint mochas! :D

It is so hard to trust God when things aren't at all the way we want them. I've found it's hard to trust and be truly content and happy all at the same time. How blessed are we that He is patient with us as we learn and grow!

That's pretty awesome that you didn't get a ticket. Did he even mention your speed? I would have started crying as soon as I saw the police lights in my rear view mirror ;)

I can't believe someone asked you if you ran a nursery! Seriously?! If you did, would you have them all out and about? That one made me chuckle. :)

Please don't take a blog break. I appreciate your stories. They make me laugh and I love a good laugh...
I'm really not laughing at you, but with you! You have to laugh or you'd cry. At least that's what I tell myself.

You forgot to mention what the police officer said to you--that's the funniest part!!

Loved this random post! Your right I did laugh about the you getting pulled over for missing your front liscense plate. And chuckled, while shaking my head at the nursery comment..."yeah, lady, that's exactly it! With the best bunch of girls ever!"
And I'm praying for you as you get "on board" with God. Hang in there!

Praying for His peace to comfort you and give you strength when you find yourself empty and felling broken. As we all do in one season or another.

I can empathize with you at least a little bit. Brian and I lived with his parents last year for 7 months. It can be very difficult to not have your own home! I will be praying for you!

I have to agree that peppermint mochas make life a little bit easier to handle!

ah Kate...take a break when you need it, but I always love hearing from you...your honesty is an inspiration...praying for you! Oh...and shame on you for making me crave a peppermint mocha at 9:30 at night!
