Gremlins

Not only have they remained, but I think they have taken out a lease on my chest . . .

Brief update-

1. Guess who is going to see James Taylor this summer???? hehe

2. Went to visit the folks this weekend and it was good. We just went up for a few hours yesterday, and we saw my brother and SIL and little tyke. He is at a fun age right now . .I am going to miss seeing him. Therapist and I are working on NOT getting so caught up in my parents drama, and it seems to be catching on. I feel less and less like I need to meddle. Then we met friend on the way home for dinner. Good times despite the drowning in snot part.

3. I have been listening to this sermon series by a guy named Rob Bell . . .I have a crush on Rob Bell . . .I have talked about this before I think. He is great and I love most of what he has to say-and how he says it. In any case, I have been listening to a sermon series on Philipians, and he has been talking about Grace and Peace. He suggested that when we begin to go on a rant about how incompetent we think we are, or how horrible we feel, or how we can do nothing right, that we remind ourselves about Grace and Peace. When someone is mean to us, or we feel upset by something someone did-remembering grace and peace. Or how great it would be if we all felt comfortable enough with others to interrupt them when they are being discouraging toward themselves or others and remind them-grace and peace. no condemnation here-why are you holding onto this??? I am not sure why this series is affecting me so, but I am taking it in and I think it is helping a tiny tiny bit to challenge the way I think about myself.

4. I did begin to work on the beanie shack in the basement, and actually have the scrapbooking stuff down in the basement now. I still need to work on a rug of some sort, but I got a great table and a fairly comfy chair at Costco last weekend and was very excited to get things moving down there. But, alas, there has been no movement on the scrapbooking front since last weekend.


Ok, off to do some reading and rest. I have a long day tomorrow. . .
