Closed Doors

Closed Doors. Have you ever come upon one? I have. People have often told me, “When one door closes, God opens a window.” Gag. I don’t know about y’all, but I am neither a cat burglar, nor am I a super-stealth ninja…I don’t often feel the need to climb through windows. I just want to walk through an open door…a WIDE OPEN door. However, life is not usually that easy; […]

A Baby Changes Everything

Is anyone else busy?  ‘Tis the season for even more insane schedules and jam-packed days.  I honestly cannot believe that the Internet is still up and running with all of the last minute BUY NOW clicks that I have been purchasing with the hope of having gifts delivered by Christmas. Christmas. It’s coming…ready or not…Christmas will be here in three days. Christmas or not…my youngest sister is doing her part […]

The Eye Patch

Hey now…it’s a Thoughtful Thursday…on a TUESDAY!!! So, Thanksgiving is in TWO DAYS.  I hope you’re ready for it.  I think I am.  In fact, at our house, we are having a Merry Thanksmas.  Yesterday afternoon I managed to put the finishing touches on my Christmas decorations, save one. I have one Nativity scene that still needs to go up. The last remaining hold-out on my decorations is a lovely […]

Lessons From Leander

I grew up just outside of Austin, Texas.  I now live in Houston, Texas, and my name is Dallas…feel free to insert your own joke here ____.  I figure that I just about have most of the major metroplexes covered.  Why am I telling you this? I grew up just outside of Austin. If I told you I lived in a little-bitty town called Leander, Texas…there are only five people […]

Crushin’ It!

Yesterday I took Ethan to have his haircut.   Through the course of the appointment, Susan began telling me about her latest adorable addition: Her new grandbaby.  We began to reminisce about all of the years she has been cutting my hair and watching my children grow.  However, she doesn’t often get to physically see my kiddos any more.  My time at the salon is mine! But, Ethan needed an emergency […]

Powder

What do you know about powder?  I realize that is a relatively odd question.  I actually started thinking about this yesterday.  There are several different types of powder.  There is the powder you put on your face, the sweet smelling kind you sprinkle on a baby’s bum, and then there is the powder I want to talk to you about today.  Yesterday I was up at my church’s office for […]

Thoughtful Thursday…on a Saturday??

So clearly I am having a bit of trouble adjusting to my new life of leisure…I do not even know what day it is!  Actually, that is not a completely true statement–I do know that today is Saturday, and that I am two days behind schedule in getting my Thoughtful Thursday post out.  Wait until you read the actual post…two days will look like the picture of punctuality considering that […]

Jumping Ship

Well…it is STILL raining in Houston.  I am thankful for the rain, really I am.  Houston is still recovering from a massive drought a couple of years ago that cost us around two million of our beloved trees.  You read that right, two million trees.  It has now been raining since mid-February, I wonder if Noah could possibly pull his ark out storage?  There are a few folks down here […]

BFFs 4-EVA!!

So, we are in the middle of a backyard rehab.  This is a humbling experiencing, in more ways than one.  For starters, the work must be done outside…we live in Houston, TX.  It would appear that God has nearly forgotten His promise to never destroy the earth by way of water again, considering that it has not stopped raining in several weeks.  Oh sure, we have had patches of sunlight, […]

Thoughtful Thursday-Super Sleepy

I want to talk to you about bizarre sleep patterns.  As you know I have children, that in itself should tell you I’m going to have some interesting nocturnal occurrences at my house.  We have your typical bad dreams that occasionally stretch into the terrifying nightmares.  We have even had to deal with the “night terror,” which is nothing short of traumatic for both kiddo and parent.  And, with three […]
