Happy New Year!

Happy New Year, everyone!  We've had two full weeks of family, friendship, food, and fun.  :)  I hope your holidays have been wonderful, as well.  I haven't uploaded all of our Christmas pictures, so I don't really have a recap, but it was good.  :)

O. Ver. Whelmed.

Well, the holidays are over...and I sooooo wish they weren't!  :)  Many, many, many things were sitting on the back burner until the turn of the new year.  And now?  I'm so terrified that I'm nearly paralyzed.

I not literally scared, but it just seems to be the right word.  I feel anxious, worried, unsure, overwhelmed, lacking faith, and ready to run.  I even considered finding a job and putting the kids in daycare.  Then, I remembered that all of my currently responsibilities wouldn't go away.  They'd simply be in addition to any career-related responsibilities.  Ugh.

Don't Got Much

I'm fairly empty of personal revelations, witty thoughts, or amusing stories.  Therefore, I'm going to direct you to a different source of information.  If you follow this link, it will take you to Cornerstone Church's Media Player.  This is where you can download or listen to the mp3's of their weekly teachings.  Their pastor, Francis Chan, is the author of Crazy Love, a hugely popular Christian book.  When I saw a sermon titled "The Most Important Lesson I Could Ever Teach"

Heating and Cooling

Our house has some issues.  :)  Thankfully, it has far less issues than when we bought it.  :)

Currently, the issue that causes the most discomfort is our heating (and cooling) system.  We have one room in the house that stays nice and warm.  It also happens to be the room in which the thermostat is located.  The rest of the house is uncomfortably chilly.  The upstairs is downright unbearable.  Every night, we plug in a space heater in each bedroom.  Then, we all hunker down under our blankets and try to go to sleep as quickly as possible.

My Words

Recently, my friend, Daryl Hunter, tweeted his three words for the year.  I was intrigued, so I followed the link in his tweet.  It led me to a blog post by Chris Brogan.  His post got my wheels turning, even though it was a little above my head.  The idea is to forego traditional "resolutions" in favor of choosing key words for the new year.  Words that represent broader ideas to give guidance to the year ahead.
