Hello dear reader!
Today is October 2 and I had big plans to do one of those #31days undertakings where I post every single day this month on one theme, which would be awesome. But now it’s October 2 and we’re two days in and I’m already behind. Maybe I should take that as a sign that I shouldn’t try? I had big plans to get back to writing about community life… we shall see.
But First! A few things.
1. I really, really need a few of you to please (please) leave a question for me that I could answer on The Gist. What’s something you’d like to know from me? Or from Danielle or Carolee? That would be so great if you could come up with something that one of us could answer.
2. Tomorrow is a big deal in the baby situation of which I cannot speak but am still going to beg for your prayers and intercession. Please pray, is all I can say. Thank you! I hate to be vague, but I’m sure you understand.
3. Finally, this is just a little “woe is me”. Isabel had pictures at her little preschool today. When I was getting her ready this morning, I asked Paul how he thought I should fix her hair? I still haven’t gotten her a little trim just yet so when it’s down it still looks a bit “iffy” and I’m not loving pony tails for her, but whenever I pull it up in the little buns on her head she just shines.
Case in point:
So that’s how I fixed her hair this morning. Except when I picked her up this afternoon, her hair was in two limp ponytails just sort of hanging there on either side of her face. And her teacher told me that the photographer had decided to pull the hair out from the little buns thus allowing the hair to hang down into these long tendrils of pony and that’s how she got her picture took. Not quite the look I had hoped for. And really if that’s all I’ve got to complain about life’s not so bad I guess. But still, boo-hoo. Seriously.
And that’s all I’ve got to say about that.
