EDIT #2: Jamie asked that we all make it a priority these next few days to pray for the get-together (if you aren’t already). For safety, fun, encouragement, inspiration, good behavior in the car (moms and kids alike!), fellowship. Just for an all-around enriching, edifying, exciting time. God’s gonna move!
p.s. I’ll post some “rules of etiquette”for the get-together tomorrow. 🙂
EDIT: (4:38 p.m.) Well, I just got off the phone with a lady from church. She’s in charge of presenting requests to the committee (from people like me who want to use the church for things). She wanted to make sure she was clear on what I needed before she approached the committee. I had a lot of fun trying to explain who we are. And how we know each other. (“No, they don’t all know each other. But I know all of them. They’re nice folks. No criminal backgrounds…”) And what exactly we would be doing for 5 hours. (“No, really. We just want to eat and talk. We’ll have no problem doing that for 5 hours. We could do it for 5 days. No, we don’t need childcare. Our kids will just run around and play while we eat and talk. And eat and talk. For five hours.”)
Hopefully no one from the committee will come check us out here today. I should delete question #3 (and all corresponding comments) just in case.
I feel queasy. I’m going to go pray.
to hear back about the room at church (see previous post), I thought I’d answer a few of your questions from way back when.
Krista asked, If you were a super hero, what would your name be and what would your outfit look like? Of all the ridiculous questions… I would be Word Girl! And my outfit would be royal blue, cornflower, and turquoise. The spandex, the cape, the tights, all of it. There would be one very cool word across my chest. It would change each day. I would not fly. Well, maybe, but really low to the ground and not too fast. I’m not real clear on what my purpose in life would be.
Jen asked, Is there a topic you would NOT write about? I can’t think of one in particular. I wouldn’t write about anything that bores me. And I wouldn’t write about anything I don’t have any experience with. I have no desire to research a topic that’s not already an important part of my life.
Twoloverslane asked, Have you completed the “baby oil” idea yet that you suggested in Is That All He Thinks About? Let me just say that it’s well worth it! Yes. WELL worth it. 🙂
And my brain already hurts. More later!
If you’d like a copy of Blushing Bride or Is That All?, see the link on my previous post for a chance to win one. My new friend Marla is giving them away on her marriage blog.
I just know somebody’s going to hop right over to Amazon and write a review for Diapers. Pretty please! And thank you!
I had stuff to say today, folks. Real stuff. And it’s gone… Happy Tuesday regardless!
