Either way, consider this a brain dump, err, explosion. Whichever.
-All of your comments yesterday about Emeline were sweet as can be. Thank you. You make a momma's heart happy.
-This morning I was awaken at 7am by a strong pounding (knocking?) on the door. It was Best Buy delivering our dryer. I can't even tell you how happy I am to have a dryer we don't have to run three or more times to get DRY clothes. Such a novelty. We're hoping it'll save on our electric costs because drying each load multiple times is A.) a time sucker and B.) an energy waster.
Either way, I shoved the husband downstairs to deal with the delivery because there is no way my hot-mess-lookin'-morning-self was going down there to do it. You'll be happy to know it's currently drying it's first load. We're all about testing out the new goods.
-My newest fun thing to mess around with on my phone is the Instagram app. Anyone else have it? My username is LovesofLife. I have no idea if other phones (other than iPhones) have this app, but it takes such fun photos. See? I love it.
-My sister emailed a bunch of her close friends/family last night to share an article on Lent she found. You know, it's funny--I grew up in always very contemporary-like Churches so Lent wasn't something I was very familiar with. But, I just can't seem to find any harm in giving up something you really enjoy doing, or something that sucks up your time to spend more time praying, or reading uplifting things, or heck, spending time with people.
So, after reading this article, I decided to join my sister and we both deactivated our Facebook accounts. I don't say this to be all braggy-brag, because, as pathetic as it sounds, giving up Facebook (aka: timesucker101) is going to be pretty hard for me. I mean, where will I upload the new pictures I take of my baybee?! Waahhh. But, more or less, you can help keep me accountable, too.
I'm determined to finish reading my book, One Thousand Gifts, during this time. I'm not a big reader--but I'm gonna buckle down and do it.
-Okay, and here's a shameless plug because I haven't done one in a long, long time. There are a few new items up in my shop, so take a look.
