Last week was full of craziness and I wish that the craziness was JUST Christmas related. But, alas, no. Jared, Maggie and I were all sick. I wont get into the gory details (and I am sure that you will appreciate that!), but J was sick the weekend before Christmas, Maggie was sick Christmas Eve and Christmas morning and well I was sick Wednesday until Saturday night. Oh, and then we are having new windows installed. Yes, one would normally have them done in warmer months but due to things out of our control, they are being done the weeks of Christmas and New Years.
I must admit that I did not handle being sick well on Christmas. I missed out on some family fun and that was very hard. There was a huge part of me that felt like after last Christmas we "deserved" a healthy Christmas. Why should we deserve it any more than anyone else? I don't know. But it is what I wanted and it probably doesn't help that my family rarely gets sick. I mean, besides cancer. ;) When Rod reminded me that last year we weren't sure if we'd have a Christmas this year ....things were put more into perspective but it still made me very sad and feeling left out to be missing out on Christmas activities especially with my sister's family as they were only in town for 3 days from Atlanta (We ended up together only a day and a 1/2)
But I did end up making some really good Cinnamon Rolls. Yes, I know that is bragging but, MAN, they are GUUUOOOD! :) I basically followed the recipe from Pioneer Woman but added brown sugar to the inside and made up my own cream cheese icing. Her icing, altho I am sure that many people love it, for people like me who have anything BUT an affinity to coffee it sounded really, well...um...icky. So that was fun to experiment and indulge.
This year when we shared our Jesus stocking, I shared that I wanted to improve my prayer life. I want to spend more time in prayer instead of just knowing that God already knows what is on my heart. He wants to hear it from me anyway. Also, I want my children to "catch" me praying more.
I have many goals for this coming year and I am sure that I will be sharing them on here. This blog is one of my goals. I am wanting to really expand it. How, I am not sure as my lack of computer intelligence is apalling. Let me at the human brain and I can sit comfortably and decipher a personality out just fine. But these stupid computers...... But I digress, yes, I have some goals about this blog......
Got some goals for 2011?
