Random Thoughts and Apologies

It has been nearly a week since I last posted. I'll blame it on the snow. Wait; that was almost a song title. Except I wasn't really singing. I was just lip-typing.

Okay that wasn't funny. Do any of you even know what I'm referring to, or am I just that much older than you all?

In other news, I am marvelling at how entirely different it is teaching my son his letters than it was the girls. Perhaps it is just that I've forgotten how long these things take or how it comes in bits and pieces. Or maybe I really have so many children I don't know what to do....

nah. can't be that.

On top of that I am toilet training my 2 year old. I think knowing that you need to eventually toilet train a child is one of the best methods of birth control around. Can't stand doing it. There are so many things that are easier about parenting than that.

Also, I've decided that Facebook can be a tool that satan uses to defeat me and amplify the lies that he has been speaking to me for years. Isn't that crazy? Stupid Facebook can become a foothold for the enemy. Lame. I won't even bother explaining how because it will just sound pathetic. And it would make a weird Status, so I thought I'd just mention it here so you all know what bizarre things I pray about... not even making this up.

Alsoly also, I think I would be willing to put up with a really good stomach flu to break my weight loss plateau. One weekend of feeling yucky for the chance to get down to the next weight-loss milestone? Sounds fair. Or I could just start exercising more regularly.

nah. Can't be that.

So maybe I shouldn't have blogged today. This is getting weird.

Let me redeem myself by saying I watched the most excellent sermon on Sunday. I was home with sick kids and so watched Mark Driscoll's sermon entitled Worship: God Transforms. Yikes. And here comes the 'apologies' section of this post.

I do hope you watch more than just that clip. The rest of the sermon is brilliant. Especially the part when he asked a question that reminded me that I still have my poor husband on a pedestal and worship him. I look to him to be my mediator, my judge, my sanctifier, my functional heaven and functional saviour. This is not okay. To him I apologize. To the Lord I apologize. More to pray about to be sure. Watch the sermon and find out what false idols you are worshipping.

And have a lovely day. I promise to be less random tomorrow.

First off, Milli Vanilli is not only familiar to me, it's second on my list of top musical acts of all time - right behind Rick Astley.

Once again Barb - I laughed - it was funny.

I like Random Barb! Don't apologize!

Andrew, you may be interested to know that my vision statement for this blog is that I'm never gonna give you up, never gonna let you down. So glad you walked away happy today.

I loved it, so I echo Jess-- Don't apologize.

Maybe I like it because it give me permission to write random blogs and not feel guilty about it. :)

Blame it on the rain, yeah ye-aaah.

Oh and one of my favourite movie quotes is "I'm one stomach virus away from my goal wait."

Love your random thinking...

Kate said...

oops. Weight, I meant weight. Apparently I'm an idiot when it comes to proofreading.

Barbara said...

That is one of my favourite movie quotes too Kate. See, just one more thing that makes you a kindred spirit! :-)

And my word verification code is "Logio". I think that is how you say your maiden name in Spanish or something.
