grillin in the midst of vacationing

as i go about recollecting our weekned in atlanta, i'm taking a brief spell to participate (tardily) in tina's grillin' goodness, just a random little get to know someone better. you can check out tina's blog in case you're up for some more randomness...

1. What's one of the best things you've seen lately?

well, it's been awhile since i've seen boywonder and bamagirl duking it out in public. being siblings just 18 months apart, they oftentimes get into it, but haven't lately since boywonder left for college. and every other time they've had extended time together, the boy has been recovering from major surgery (hence the little vacation-ette in atlanta). so it was super great to see them fighting again. (but it was all in fun!)

2. Has Spring brought you something you don't like?

other than taxes, not really! i am blessed to be allergy-free. and in a pollen factory like our neck of the woods in a valley, it really is a blessing!!

3. What kind of sandwiches do you like?

I'm not a fan of sandwiches in general, like i would never think to make myself a sandwich for lunch if i was hungry. but if i'm going to eat one, i like a simple turkey on wheat with lettuce tomato and mustard. hold the mayo, please!

4. Do you carry GermX with you at all times?

I do not, but the hubster is obsessed! after the "meet & greet" at church?? out comes the bottle. and a quick squirt and we're all good. i carry one in the car for yukky encounters. but for the most part, i'm not a huge germophobe.

5. Does each person in your house have their own hamper or do you have a central hamper for everyone?

i have two teenagers. so the hubster and i have one in our room, and the kids have a floor. seriously, they each have a hamper, but the floor works better. clean clothes on one side of the room, dirty ones on the other. i'll probably not be winning mother of the year anytime soon, but that's okay. i gave up that fight about laundry a long time ago. i have three hampers in the laundry room, so as people bring down their stuff, they can sort as they go.

6. How often do you balance your checkbook?

balance a checkbook?? do people still do that? i keep up online pretty regularly. if i need to balance my checkbook, i just open a new account! LOL (except i'm not really kidding)

7. What's the hardest thing you've done lately?

hmmmm. not alot is what i would classify as "hard" but i would say that shepherding my children through a betrayal has been an exercise in what it looks like to live our faith out. what it looks like to forgive. how to forgive someone who has hurt someone you love. having standards and boundaries. good teaching moments. i guess it's never easy when your children's hearts are involved, and it's painful to watch them live life and get hurt. 

8. Are you a texter?

omg, u bet i am! i have teenagers, remember?


  1. I don't balance a checkbook either! I use a little piece of paper. It's ridiculous.

  2. I had to laugh about the GermX thing (as well as the texting comment). I carry a travel size Purell bottle with me everywhere. After "meet & greets" at church, trips to the dumpster, filling up on gas, etc., I whip it out.


love me some comment love… thanks so much for taking the time to share your heart with me!
