Monday Highlights

Let's see... What's going on this week?

1. I DRAGGED myself to a leadership meeting at church that I was supposed to go to yesterday. I did not want to go, at all. Nick and the girls went out to lunch with my family while I did it. But, I got some fantastic new ideas and inspiration about leading my small group. Yay for messages that are just what you need.

2. The kitty slept at the foot of our bed last night. I always had a kitty sleeping at the foot of my bed, growing up. It was fun.

3. If all goes well, we get to make a trip to Starry Sky Ranch on Wednesday. Can't wait!

4. Um, it's 3 1/2 weeks to Thanksgiving???!!!!???

5. Hannah had a gluten issue this weekend, after a helper in her childcare during choir rehearsal gave her 3 or 4 crackers. I don't think she's had that much gluten in more than a year. Wow, lots of temper tantrums and tears. I am forever grateful that we found out what the real problem was early on. I understand why parents would look for a behavioral diagnosis for kids that just really have a food allergy or something similar. For example, there seems to be some link between autism and gluten. "Autistic" kids put on a gluten free diet often improve by leaps and bounds. Makes me wonder if the gluten is the only real problem. As much as it affects Hannah, I can see how it would be very difficult for those kids to learn at the same rate as their peers. But, that was a tangent, not so much a highlight. Oh well.

What are your highlights for the week?


  1. My highlight: getting my laptop fixed tomorrow--this is a big hooray for me and I started a blog, a real blog. But I feel sheepish about it.

  2. Nice! I feel sheepish about mine too, but you always tell me you love it, so that helps. ;) Let me know where it is when you're ready.

  3. Hi - I found your blog randomly and like it :) You seem to be interested in a lot of the same things I am. I'll be back!
