Could someone please remind me of all the stuff you've got to do before you have a baby? I think I'm supposed to be nesting, but I'm having trouble remembering what all that entails. I know I need to:

1. Find and wash the newborn clothes.
2. Find and wash and install the car seat.
3. Go to the grocery, and/or buy lunches for the kids for the next month at school, so I don't have to pack them.
4. Wash the blankets and stuff on our bed.
5. Is cleaning the rest of the house negotiable?

 What am I forgetting?

Don't count on too much entertainment out of this, but...

I'm doing quick takes today!

Looking for signs in all the wrong places

This week has been a little stressful. Whole family's been sick, and just when I though I was getting over it, I crashed for a second time. Added to that... there's been enough going on in the world that maintaining hope in the Christ's promises has become sort of a tooth and nail battle.

She's like your mother. She wants you to call her.

It's a little bit common sense stuff, but sometimes common sense fails me, so I thought I'd write it down while it's all on my mind.

Book History

My friend Lauren at "The Loveliest Hour" was asking on facebook about her twelve-year-old daughter  attempting to read War and Peace.  I hem-hawed around about it in my mind for a bit, then thought, "Wait a minute, I have a post for that!"

In short, my sister probably could have managed War and Peace at a young age. I probably could not have. In fact, I don't think I ever finished reading War and Peace, but I did start it three times, if that counts for anything.
