It's funny how not feeling well can make one feel foggy in so many areas. But the fog is starting to lift thanks to rest, fluids, and antibiotics. Thanks to a husband who kept up with laundry and dishes and diaper changes. Thanks to breathing treatments working for Bubs. Thanks to McAlister's chicken tortilla soup because I could only eat so much Campbell's chicken noodle. (Although the tortilla soup got its revenge with heartburn that felt like I was having a heart attack for two hours last night... a story for another day). And today while The Hubs took Bubby to his follow-up doctor appointment (looks good), I was no longer contagious and feeling decent enough to attend my first MOPS meeting, though staying and napping on the couch looked tempting.
And getting out and talking with some other mamas made me feel better. And I somewhat regret not joining last year, though I had my reasons. I am going to get out of my comfort zone this year.  I am going to continue going to MOPS and the social activities they are offering this year, I am going to go to Wednesday's Beth Moore study (even though I had to miss the first one this week), I am going to sign up to go on the Women's Retreat  this October (even though I do not know with whom I will room)...
I have always been a mix between extrovert and introvert.  Personality tests have confirmed I am about half and half.  But I think the last five or so years I have let the introvert take over, and I don't really like it.  Not that I want to be the loud, obnoxious one in the group.  That is (USUALLY) not me.  I'd like my balance back.
I took a few days off of Facebook.  How refreshing, and yet how eye-opening.  I hope to write about this soon.  But it gave me a lot to think about - pushed me into thinking about more changes I want to make in my life.  I have a few months left until I turn thirty, and while I am happy with who I am, I am ready to keep growing into who God intended me to be.  Scary thought. Thrilling thought.  Exhausting thought.
So maybe I am still a bit foggy... this post was a little all over the place.  Guess I just needed to type it all out. :)


  1. oh, i'm so glad to hear that i'm not the only one! i've discovered that i'm both extrovert and introvert and i've never met anyone else who identifies! you just made me very very happy! :)
    i'm continuing to pray for healing for both you and bubby as well as sleep for your whole family. *hugs*

  2. A) i heart mcallister's. and we have one, but it's not the same as the one "back home" and so i just keep missing it and not eating there so that i can enjoy it at home!
    B) i took a looooooong facebook break and while i do love connecting w/ some of my long losts, there are some days i feel i really shouldn't have logged back on.
    C) i'm an innie/outtie too LOL
    D) heartburn. oh, the stories.
    i hope you feel 10000000% soon. :)

  3. Want to room with me? I have to figure out the finances, but I'm hoping to go. Let me know what you think! Alicia (the speaker) is amazing.


Thanks for stopping by and sharing your thoughts with me.
