I don't know what to write... You know, it's been interesting getting my feet wet in the "blogosphere". I read some blogs of people that I know, but also strangers. As I read other blogs, I wonder if I ever come across to people as obnoxious? Ok, maybe these people aren't obnoxious, but they have very strong opinions about things. For example, I read a lady's blog and she spoke about childrearing, nursing, discipline, etc....you know, all the common parenting issues. Anyway, her convictions were so strong that it was offensive. My quandry is, as a reader, should I respond? What usually happens is that I think that I will write this wonderful, intelligent response that will certainly help her see the error of her ways. She'll see the light and come to her senses. Then, after I've written about 3 sentences, I realize that if a complete stranger wrote to me, I'd probably blow it off. So, then I just delete everthing I planned to post and go on.
OK, so what's been going on that is not obnoxious? Well...Katie and I had a mother/daughter getaway last weekend. My heart is so full when I think about her growing up! I'm getting tears just sitting here thinking about it! She turned 11 in November and I decided it was time for "the talk". I know, I know... She's only 11!!!! Believe me, I hated to do it...but it would just break my heart if she began her time of the month and didn't know what it was. Some of her friends are already there. Since she doesn't go to school, she really had no knowledge at all, which is great! Also, we talked about where babies come from. She was sufficiently repulsed, which is also great! The only real problem is that I could hardly keep from crying every time we began to talk about her growing up! I sure love that girl! To celebrate the weekend, she got her ears pierced. We had a great time. I used Family Life Today's Passport to Purity. We only did the sessions concerning friends, peer pressure, and sex. We'll do the sessions on dating in a few years....many years!
Monday it was back to the grind...school has been good. I had a meeting tonight, but not a lot going on this week. I love it! Zane has a swim meet on Sat., but that's about it.
And, you may be wondering how my resolutions are going. We'll, do you remember how you'd go to church camp every summer and "rededicate" your life to the Lord? I going to have to rededicate my resolutions. I'm going to bed earlier than usual, but not as early as I should. I'm going to work on it though. Of course, if you look at the time this was posted, you'll see that I'm not doing well. Perhaps I should say good night.
