Restful Mission

As I sit here trying to force my brain to stay awake long enough to get this post out there, I realize it’s a losing battle. I’m tired. No, actually I’m exhausted. The last five days have been a whirlwind of activity that started when my husband and I attended WordCamp Tampa last Saturday and Sunday. We’ve been going nonstop ever since. Between going to the gym, my day job, leading  Small Group at church on Tuesday night, attending a small group this morning at 6:00 A.M., work again, working out again, I’m beat!  Oh, and I accomplished a couple of administrative tasks I do for the church and cranked out a few blog posts. I’m physically and mentally whipped.  So, I have declared tonight my “I’m on a mission to get 8 hours of sleep”. If I go to bed RIGHT NOW, I may actually succeed in this mission.

I have a big and exciting weekend ahead of me. We’ll be spending several days with very dear friends we don’t see nearly enough, and I’ll be attending the Women of Faith Conference with my friend Lindsey. I’m looking forward to the next 3.5 days so much. And I know my body. I need to recharge. So please forgive the short post and come back tomorrow when I hope that my brain has had a chance to reset and I can tell you all about my next mission or mission related ideas.

Even my kitty Peppy says it’s bedtime.  Have a great evening and I’ll see you all tomorrow.

239/365 Happy Gotcha Day. Sorta.

Today is the day I celebrate my sweet Peppy’s Gotcha Day, even though I should be celebrating this in two more days.

Peppy came into my life on May 3, 2000. This just happens to be the same day we buried my father. Peppy was my father’s final gift to me.

I choose to celebrate my sweet boy’s Gotcha Day today, because for the 11th year now, it’s helped me be less sad on this day. This anniversary of the day that I lost my father.

Last year I wrote about this amazing gift and I would love for you to read it if you haven’t already.

203/365 Furniture Saver

A couple of weeks ago we bought this giant doggie bed to use as a giant cat bed. I can’t even begin to tell you how exciting it is when every single time I walk through the living room, it seems to be occupied by a cat. And if the cats are laying on this, it means they are NOT laying on our brown microsuede sofa. Which means much less vacuuming for us. Yeah!
