I feel less like taxing my brain today than I normally do…
This Mayan calendar thing. As a Christian I don’t get worked up about it because I’m ready for the second coming. I don’t care whether Mayans have it right because we won’t be around to worry about it. On the other hand, if the world ends tomorrow I will be a little disgruntled I spent so much time in crowds Christmas shopping.
Wind. Good heavens, it is blowing like crazy in Decatur, TX. Last night I was driving through a dust storm. Today, part of the wall on my shed is gone.
I’m an Advocare guy. I don’t promote it but I like their products and buy it for my son and I primarily. Today I saw this video and I’m liking the idea…http://www.advocare.com/canyou24/
I just sold a watch on EBay. After the auction closes, the winner shoots me a message and asks if I will retract his offer. He said his wife was bidding on another watch and won so he doesn’t need this one. Uh, hello? Now he’s a ghost and I’ve got to drag EBay into the fray. Frustrating.
I used to watch a lot of college basketball. A LOT. The only time I’ve watched a full game in the last two years is during March Madness. What’s happened to me?
I’ve started making sausage balls for the kids to eat. They love them and, well, I do too. I made the biggest batch I’ve ever attempted a few nights ago. When the timer went off, I decided I needed to leave them in for 2 more minutes. I didn’t reset the timer. 10 minutes later the smell reminded me I had not taken them out. Oops.
Take out Mexican food is never as good at eat-in Mexican food. I’m not counting fast food restaurants in that statement.
I’m still heartbroken over the Newtown, CT tragedy. I watched a bit of President Obama’s comments on his new task force and hope something happens that will limit these incidents. While I don’t agree with everyone else all the time, it is good that dialogue will start and I hope all the issues will be on the table to address. A baseball blogger, Jamey Newberg, had a book release party last night with lots of auction items and has raised over $19,000 for the family of one of the girls killed in the school who have North Texas/Texas Rangers roots. I cannot imagine losing one of my children like that. I pray the Lord heals those families in ways that no mortal will ever be able to understand.
Grace and peace.
