I’m a creature of habit. Except when I get bored. I like risk and adventure. Except when I’m scared. I’m a people-loving extrovert. Except when I’m a introverted hermit.
I am an indecisive, self-contradictory, mood-flinging roller coaster.
Just ask my husband, the man who has been married to me for 13+ years and has learned to predict my reactions/responses with great accuracy but will probably never, ever understand why on earth I think/act/feel the way I do.
Why I can’t sit at the table/my desk/in a car like a normal person with my feet on the floor.
Why I can speak to a group of hundreds of people, yet hyperventilate at a little Meet-n-Greet and beg him to let me go home.
Why I can love something one minute and hate it the next.
Why I can be completely selfless one minute and entirely selfish the next.
Why I feel this urgent, pressing need to purge our home of every single thing we don’t need. And then some.
Why buying a new shirt for a photo shoot causes a real, not-made-up panic attack.
Sigh. I don’t get me either.
Anyway. Gabe wants to make some changes on my blog. He wants to lose the stick figures, put up a picture or two of me, make my books more visible, and add some stuff that gives people more of an idea of what makes me tick (ha! not as simple as it sounds).
So, I need your help. What kinds of things do you like in a blog? What would you like to see on this one? And, if you’d be so kind, tell me which picture you think would look best (either as part of the header or on the sidebar). Here’s one pic, and you can see the other four here.
(p.s. my sweet bag is from One Mango Tree. It was 50% off, and I LOVE IT.)
And if change makes you freak out, just tell me to keep it the same please, thanks.
Stay tuned for a homeschooling update (I finally made an agonizing decision about curriculum), a Cambodia Fund update, more books you’ve got to read, and some more stuff I’m selling to raise money for our trip.
Last thing. I’m having a 31 Gifts party at my house Thursday at 7pm for my friend and pastor’s wife, Shalla. You are MORE than welcome to come if you live close. And ANYONE can order online, and it will count toward my party. If you’re looking for some cute personalized Christmas gifts, this would be perfect. 15% off entire catalog!
