I’m a procrastinator

Ok, I admit I’m a procastinator. I already knew that though. I envisioned writing in this web journal everyday. I envisioned having pithy comments everyday. Boy, was my vision…off. I should have known that I wouldn’t get to this everyday. And then I would think to myself that it’s no use now since I’ve missed a couple of days. I’m going to keep missing days, but that’s ok!

I’ve started watching the Food Network in hopes to become more inspired in the kitchen. And it is working. I’ve also come to realize that I don’t have good knives…and I don’t know how to use knives well, haha. Rachael Ray can cook wonderful meals in 30 minutes, but it would take me just 30 minutes to cut up the food! I’m not going to lay all the blame on my skill, I’m going to place some of the blame on my knives. The Eversharp isn’t so eversharp.

So Rachael uses her own Furi East/West knife and Giada de Laurentiis uses Global knives. They both chop food well and make delicious food. If I get one of their knives will I do the same? haha. I’m willing to try. Paula Dean makes absolutely delectable looking food, but I’d die of heart failure if I made her food all the time. I guess that’s where the word “moderation” comes in.

Our next stop…Myrtle Beach for our 10 year anniversary! I’ll see if they have wonderful knives in their outlet stores.

Fear vs. Action

God tells the Israelites in 2 Chronicles 20:17,

“…Do not be afraid; do not be discouraged. Go out to face them tomorrow, and the Lord will be with you.”

Idea: Focus on the purpose and you won’t have time to be discouraged.

Why am I just realizing this now? We’ve lived here for almost three years and I’ve been hiding behind the fear of being discouraged. Which, by the way, all the while, made me more discouraged. I am feeling a desire to pray for, no, with people for their situations. I need to have courage to do the Lord’s will…He will be with me! Who can stand against that?

Meanwhile, house hunting before it’s time to house hunt is fun but frustrating! Can someone turn that part of the internet off? We’re moving this summer and it would be nice to get some things done before the chaos starts…that way maybe the chaos wouldn’t be so bad. This will be our first time selling a house and then buying another one so the excitement/stress factor may reach unknown proportions…Hey, wait a minute “Do not be afraid; do not be discouraged!” That seems like it should be my motto for right now.

Thanks to you two who’ve tagged my blog. I’m not quite sure what tagging means or does, but you said nice things . How did you find my blog? I get most of my technology knowledge from listening to talk radio and the news…with a soon-to-be-4 year old that’s all I can manage right now! When I transfered my website from a free host to Bravenet I thought I was going to have to personally hire a Bravenet guy to spend some time with me to set it all up. Like I wrote yesterday though, I’m just smart enough to get by in the technology world, and so right now it looks like it’s all working…and I still have most of my hair.

And God, can You please give us more of that unseasonably warm weather?

Hello World

I’ve been messing around with web design for a couple of years now and this is the first blog entry I’ve ever written. Web design should be qualified. I’ve dabbled in HTML code and FrontPage only for the sake of creating our family website.

A friend of mine has a blog and there’s a certain connectivity I feel with her when I can read her thoughts on a daily basis. I’ve read a couple of entries from random blogs also and all of these entries lead me to believe that mine will be the most boring-ly written blog ever. I’m not creative so don’t imagine you’ll get your daily quips and literary fixes from this site.

We’ll see if I can keep this up with a soon-to-be 4 year old, homeschooling, an impending move, and hundreds of other things that seem to fill my day but yet aren’t memorable.

So, hello world! I’m attempting to keep up!
