My First Post!

Well, I never thought it would happen, but here I am-- blogging! This is an effort to journal and get my thoughts down. Life is going at a breakneck speed and I want to be able to look back and remember all the stories when/if life ever slows down.

The Title means that the adjectives and adverbs to describe my life change by the minute--one second I'm a surgeon's assistant and the next I'm the mother of 3.

Today was a classic example of the busy-ness. 6:30 case, go, go, go--(By the way, I LOVE my job and I LOVE the go, go, go of the operating room) All of a sudden--eeeeeeerrrrrrrch a screeching halt--all the work is done and I can clock out and leave........hmmmmm going home early for a nap might be a novel idea.... During the drive home I got 3 messages and called 3 important people and made arrangements for even more busy-ness in the upcoming week.

Somehow I resisted the urge to stop in at Starbuck's--even though I had enough cash in my pocket to buy a refreshing, delicious Grande Mocha Frappucino. I talked to my sister about having my nephew spend the night Friday night and how great it would be to sign Nate and Caleb up for a Game Design summer camp.

When I walked through the door I heard the familiar "Hello" from upstairs---Oh yeah, I forgot it was early release today! It is so rare that I get off early when the kids do that I had completely dumped it from my brain. So, I said 'Hi' to Nate and asked how his day went. He told me that the other 2 weren't home yet.

I got on the phone and took care of some Business for HopeSpring Design and ended up on the computer updating a website. I had about an hour before my website meeting downtown, so I did some digi-scrapping and answered email. While perusing another scrapper's gallery I was reminded of Psalm 139:13-16---some of my most favorite verses. For some reason I decided that it should be shared with the Youth that Bob & I have recently been getting to know. We'll see what the response is. I think I tend to be way too serious.

So....the rest of the evening entailed a phone call from a principal, a website meeting, a doctor's appointment (a research study--so maybe I'll grow a 3rd eye or something), a stop at Starbuck's, home to refresh, Scouts, and now here---phew!

Tomorrow will not be any more slow paced, but I love my life just how
God has made it.
