7 Quick Takes Friday (Vol 7)



Wow. Only 8 Quick Takes in the history of my blog? That’s gotta be wrong. I am going to try and blog more frequently from now on. I say that a lot, I know, BUT I have gotten a lot of traffic lately and so it’s a must now. Please be patient with me. I have a lot of stuff in my head, but have a problem writing it down. And by problem I mean that I spend way too much time on Facebook.


Ugh, Facebook. What is it about Facebook that drives us all insane? And why is it a time suck? You log in at 9 am just to see what’s going on and then Patheos bloggers wake up. By the time you even look up you are still in your pajamas, drinking coffee and haven’t brushed your teeth. Annnnd it’s 4 pm. What is that?!  Please pray for me. I need to log off. Or not ever log on. I’m not sure which.


I don’t know about the rest of you, but I have felt like I’m on the verge of panic this week. To be honest, I have passed the verge of panic and am pretty much yelling at everyone “Don’t you know what is happening?!!!!!!!!!” It hit me today that I’m pretty much a 2013 version of Chicken Little. I may need to tone it down a bit. I’m at a 10 and I need to bring it down to a 5. Again, please pray for me.


Second week of school and my kids have perfect attendance so far. I know that seems like it’s not a big deal, but I’m not sure how long it will last so I’m soaking up the accomplishment.


I am going to the Catholic Writer’s Conference in October!! YIPPPEEEEE. I’m so excited. I feel like I’m going to just be playing like I’m a writer, but it’s ok. I hope to learn a lot and I’m really looking forward to the time alone with God. It’s been awhile since I’ve gone on retreat and I need to clear my head.


I am so ready for fall around here. It’s been a very hot summer, like all summers in Texas, but now I have a fireplace so Fall is awesome. I didn’t really think that it would be that awesome to have a fireplace but last year we lit it every chance we got. One day we lit it and it ended up being such a warm day that we had to turn on the AC early.


I’m going to finally sit down and work on writing my Conversion story as a book. I’m really nervous and I’m scared of rejection. But I feel God calling me to do it and I have some great people encouraging me. Including those who donated money to help me get to the Writer’s Retreat and gave me flyer miles to get there. So here goes nothing. I started this blog thinking that it was a crazy thing to do. I just write what I feel and hope someone understands what I’m trying to say. Thank all of you who read and comment on here. It means a lot to me. More than you will ever know. God bless ya’ll!

  1. Me too. I’m reading Diane Korzeniewski’s posts on the Catholic Virtual wars, and I’m realizing that I do all of those things based off what I read or comment on on Facebook. I am perpetually angry. That’s not cool at all. I have no idea what I’m gonna do about it, as I do find good things on there, like those posts, and I have such great support for prayers and stuff. I just need to watch my words and attitude. Or get off. Stupid Facebook.
