7 Quick Takes Friday

I have been reading Jennifer over at Conversion Diary for awhile now. She's smart and funny and I really enjoy her perspective on things. I really want to blog more this year, but who knows if it's really going to happen. I figure I can at least manage once a week :) I was going to take some photos and all that but then it'll be next Friday before I get this post done.

My daughter's feet are almost the same size as mine. I wear a size 5. She's almost 12. Do you think I can wish that she'll stop at size 5 so we can share shoes? I didn't think so :( A girl can dream though.

This year my "theme" is the word "present" as in "being present" (although I like presents too!) Circumstances in our life and ministry mean that life in Madrid is often lonely. Since I connect with people online a lot, I am often on my computer. That's a necessary evil to be able to stay in touch with those I love who are far away, but this year I want to do better about really being present where I am. I think this year that will mean more deliberate connection with my family.

When I was growing up I journaled like crazy. I haven't done that in a long long time, but I'd like to journal more regularly this year.

Barb over at Chelsea Morning has a "Good Things" book where she keeps track of ideas she likes and all kinds of stuff. Even though I don't get many magazines (too much of a pain to ship to Spain) I think this would be a great way to keep track of stuff I find online and print out. I'd like to start one this year.

I am perplexed by the amount of cleavage I see nowadays. Not just on celebrities but on normal everyday people, even women my age. I just don't get it. I'm just saying.

After being a complete slug almost constantly since December 26th, I went a little nuts today. We put away all the Christmas stuff, I'm washing couch throw pillows and even took the footstool apart so I could "dry-clean" the fabric in the dryer.

When we're on vacation, we tend to stay up WAAAAAAAY later than normal and then sleep in. Problem is, that does not mesh with real life. So starting tonight, I have to start going to bed at a normal hour for me. Or next week will be a killer.

That's all!
