Bible in 90 Days

So the latest session of the Bible in 90 days started up on August 20th. Almost a month in and I'm nowhere near on schedule. It's quite frustrating to me that I let things get in the way of only a short amount of reading. I'm determined to finish, I just doubt that I'll finish on time. On the 24th of September another study is starting up that I'm participating in. That means I'll have to keep track of both. I know it's definitely do-able. I was able to keep up with multiple classes all through school. I should be able to keep up with the long as I make the time for it.

20 years is a long time!

Today was the beginning of my 20 year high school reunion weekend. It was kicked off with the football game at 7pm. I took Sarah and Rebecca with me to the game...they were excited because they've never seen a live game. It was a pretty good time. Got to see a few friends that I haven't seen in the 20 years since high school as well as a few that I have seen since graduation. I'm guessing I'll have to find a picture of myself from highschool to add here...just so anyone who cares can see what I looked like 20 years ago. I personally don't think I look that much different. I basically have the same hairstyle I did back then...straight and all one length. Use relatively the same colors as far as makeup are concerned. I suppose the only difference would be that I look older...because I am. We've told our girls a couple times that most likely we will move before Rebecca finishes 8th grade. This is because we don't have any way to send them to Trinity (the Catholic high school nearby) and the public school isn't an option as far as we're concerned. Upon seeing my old stomping grounds, they both said that's where they want to go to high school. Of course, this would all be dependent upon finding a big enough house in the area that is within our price range...which will be hard I think. I guess we'll just have to wait and see. Of course, the other obstacle is that daddy doesn't want to live in that area. He'd rather be somewhere closer to the country...which is a lot further from the grandparents and jobs as well.

Writer's Block

So I'm sitting here at 11:30 with the urge to write something...but I can't think of anything to write. This sucks! I was never one for writing things when I was in school. I always dreaded doing reports for the most part. Didn't mind the factual things too was the creative...or off the cuff type things that I never thought I was very good at. Some how...I've changed. I guess it's a maturity thing. I have come to the realization that it really doesn't matter what others think of the things I write. I'm doing it for myself...and just sharing it with all of you...on the off chance that you give a rat's patoot (that is how you spell patoot isn't it?). So anyway...since I am no longer being graded on the content or format of the things I write...I can pretty much do what I want...which is good.

This whole thing started because I wanted to get my thoughts out of my head about something that was very disturbing to me. Since then...I've written more than I thought I would. Some things were hard to write because of the memories that were brought back to the forefront. In hindsight though, I think that was a little therapeutic. Hey, spell check didn't ding me on that...I got it spelled right the first time!

This is awful weird...writing about having nothing to write about. How does that work exactly? Who knows...but I'm going to run with it.

So I started this post about 18 months ago and never finished it. Here I am....with the same stinkin' problem. I want to put something "on paper" and have nothing in my head to write about.

I started a post the other night...but it reads like a time line of just basic crap. Not really interesting...even to me.
