Storm Fatigue

Storm Fatigue

A week or two ago, there was an epidemic sweeping Houston. It was literally effecting everyone I knew in one way or another. Those without power were tired of the heat, the isolation….the dark. My neighbor across the street who had power was fatigued by having no cable…and thus no internet or email. He said he felt like he was living in the 1980’s again. I told him that was nothing….I was living in the 1880’s with only candles to…

Bear Hug

Bear Hug

I have an uncle. He lived far away, traveled and worked in foreign countries. We didn’t see him that often but when we did he was the kind of man you wanted to listen to and be around. He always reminded me of Grizzly Adams….a bearded man with a soft heart. He had some good stories and, maybe it was because he lived in Texas the majority of the time, but he always seemed a little larger than life. My…

Don’t ever do this….

Don’t ever do this….

Bill went out this week and signed our family up at a new health club near our home. It is really nice….like so nice you almost don’t want to sweat in there.

It had been a busy afternoon with doctors appointments, soccer practice, etc. It got late and I realized Jacob and Savannah hadn’t eaten dinner yet. Although they have a cafe at the club, it…

Hot pockets taste pretty good deep fried on the outdoor cooker! 3. My…

Post Ike

Post Ike

As I mentioned yesterday, I have LOTS of stories from our Hurricane Ike experience. Some good, some not so good things that happened, things I learned from the storm, etc. As weird as it sounds (and my sister almost disowned me for feeling this way!) I truly wanted to “experience” a hurricane. We heard so much about straight line winds, howling winds and rain, etc. that I wanted to be able to say “I survived Ike”. Bill joked that I…

Funny story!

Funny story!

O.K., I’ve only had a blog for a few minutes now and I already have a funny story! Most of you know that last week we got our power back after 11 (yes that’s right, ELEVEN) days with no electricity. (trust me, you will hear more about this later) One day before going to teach my class at Houston Baptist University, I tried to dry my hair using the single box fan we had in our house. I sat in…

I’m doing it…something I’ve been saying I wanted to do for a long time now. I’m starting a blog. Really it’s just for me, but feel free to read along. I love to tell stories and I love to share what God is teaching me in my life. That’s what I’ll be blogging about….and if you know me very well, I seem to always have a story! SHARE
