Status Update July 2009

Quite late on the July status update due to that nasty virus and other stuff, but here goes with my copying of Lisa's format:

Sitting: At my computer desk. Where else? I use a lap top, but it's hooked up more like a desk top at the moment. I'm so technologically inept I wouldn't know how to go about moving it at this point.

Waiting: For J to get home. They'll be back in less than an hour, so I suppose I should keep this short and keep one eye on the clock! Can't wait to hear about his first camp experience!

Glad: To be feeling much better.

Needing: An intervention, I fear. Facebook is becoming an addiction. Got to set a limit. Right. Now. Of course, I was the same way with blogging when I began. And you can see by my very light posting of late how that has worn off.

Reading: Hoping for Something Better by Nancy Guthrie. I'm taking my time because I want to absorb this study through the book of Hebrews. I'll be blogging about things that strike me, I'm sure.

Also reading: The Charlemagne Pursuit by Steve Berry. Always have some fiction book going. I'm not too far into this one yet, so I don't know if it's good or not. So far it's interesting.

Reading on hold: God is the Gospel by John Piper. This was another one I was taking slowly, but then the Nancy Guthrie book came, and since Elle is reading and blogging her way through it, I want to be reading it. I hope to get back to this one soon.

Received in the mail from Amazon: Inkdeath by Cornelia Funke. Can't wait to sink my teeth into this last of the Inkheart trilogy. I've really enjoyed the other two books in the series. Gotta finish what I'm already in the middle of first, though.

Finishing: If Mama Ain't Happy, Ain't Nobody Happy by Lindsey O'Connor. Next Wednesday is our last meeting, so we'll be finishing our discussion. I've enjoyed it! Look at all these books I've got going. No wonder I'm.....

Avoiding: Housework. You should see my floors. Wait, maybe you shouldn't. I've GOT to vacuum, and soon. Get off the computer, put the book down.....

Enjoyed: Some one-on-one time with Boo this week while her brothers were away. She is such a funny, sweet little girl. She gives the best hugs, too.

Preparing: To help with a new women's Bible study at church this fall. I'm a little nervous but excited to step out on faith. Pray for me and the other ladies?

Drinking: Iced tea with Sweet-N-Low. Got to drop some of this extra weight that has crept back since my little dehydration episode.

Snacking: On nothing right now. See above.

Trying: To bond with our new dog. He's cute, he's sweet, he's cuddly, he's......a puppy. He chews EVERYTHING. He POOPS in the house...occassionally. He's not Oliver. But he is Roscoe, and I'm glad we got him, all things considered. It's just taking a while to feel like he's "family." Boo has totally bonded. She hugs him all the time. He's very patient with her. Good thing.

Ending: This post. It's almost time to go meet the Centri-Kid campers as they return home. Need to get myself and Boo ready to walk out the door now.

Happy Friday!

I like this format... I might "steal" it. Trying to blog regularly. This might help.

Considering I stole it from Lisa, feel free. She said I could use it....I don't think she'd mind!
