Really really random thoughts

  • My root canal worked and I can chew on that side of my mouth for the first time in 5 years with NO PAIN!
  • Vacation was wonderful. We saw sooo many things and people. I WILL blog about it all, but not tonight.
  • I've been a recluse since getting back. I'm fighting an allergy/cold thing and I am just dead tired.
  • I've also been a recluse because I am feeling like God is calling me to be home. Really home. Not "running around all the time and calling myself a stay at home mom" type home, but the real "I can make homemade bread and not worry about whether I'll be home when it needs to be punched down or go in the oven" type home. I'm trying to figure out what that looks like.
  • And I've been a recluse because the thing I love most about being on vacation is the utter lack of connectedness with the frenetic pace of the outside world. In the Finger Lakes, life is just slower and I love it. It is balm to my soul. I'm trying to preserve that feeling a bit.
  • And did I mention I'd dead tired?
  • Oh, and we're poor.
  • I'm thinking God may also be calling me to a business opportunity. I know that seems to run contrary to the above statements, and I don't think it's an immediate sort of thing, but it is the sort of thing I can do with the kids helping out...I'm just terrified of the potential "lose your shirt" risk that goes with starting a business.
  • Did I mention we are already poor? So why not start a business?
  • I don't want to hear about Michael Jackson again for a very long time.
Okay, that's it for now. I have to go cut up a peach for my son.
Pin It!

Soooooooo good to hear from you!!!! I can't wait to hear all about your trip. Funny that you feel like God is calling you home. I've been having some similar convictions about being a SAHM and homemaker and what that really looks like. We'll have to chat.

No wonder I feel like I haven't talked to any of you all in ages! God is talking to all of you and telling you to stay home! :)

Glad you are home, safe and sound!

Yay! You're home! Yay! Can't wait to catch up. I would invite you over, but that would contradict your stay-at-homeness. Guess you don't want to swim and visit?! :)

Sonya said...

Glad you are home safely! Even better, glad that you are listening to God! I'll pray about your business opportunity!

Thanks for making it part of your trip to come our way. It was such a treat for me to connect with you.

Glad you are home and safe and sound.

Love to hear your random thoughts! I could almost hear your voice through the whole thing. staying home is a wonderful thing- I've done more of it since I've been here and have fewer friends- but you might want to still plan one day out that you can do your errands & appointments and see friends and then you have that to look forward to each week.

I don't want to hear about M.J. any more either...time to turn off the TV I guess.

Blessings to you for wanting to be home more...good for you.

We'll see what God has in store for your business and the GOOD thing about being poor, is that it keeps you totally dependant on GOD. We are there too.
