It's a beautiful day here in Colorado

It snowed this morning!! Thankfully, it was the kind of snow that covered my skylights but not my driveway, so no shoveling was involved. And now, the sun is out and the sky is blue. What a beautiful day.

Chase and I went to church this morning and then went out to lunch with our small group. What a great group of friends our small group is! So supportive and kind...we have certainly enjoyed the friendships we have made at our church and especially with these three other families. Our small group is unique in that we have our Bible study once a month and the other meeting per month we do a service project. Those service projects have really blessed all of our families, especially our kids who often are so busy with their own activities, they don't have time to stop and consider needs and wants of people in the community. The service projects have opened all of our eyes in ways we could not have imagined. It's amazing how great the blessings are that come our way when we are blessing others!

I'm not feeling amusing today, sorry! I'm trying to keep this fairly light-hearted, but today I'm feeling kind of melancholy. Not sad, not depressed, not even blue, just kind of reflective and...melancholy. If you have any, send any spare prayers our way. Prayers for what, you ask? I don't know - I guess if you were to pray for only one thing, it's wisdom. Our options are wide open and we aren't sure of the right way to turn at the moment. Pray for God's wisdom and direction for our family. We love all of you guys, and stay tuned! I'm sure to be funnier tomorrow... :)

My First Post...ever!

So, my first question is why the heck would anyone ever see this thing anyway? Hmmmmmm. Maybe I have to send out emails to alert humanity at large of its existence. :) So, are you wondering why the weird name for this blog? It's because we are currently embarking on our THIRD zip code move in FOUR years. Sigh. I am hoping that by publicly recognizing the insanity of that, maybe, just maybe, God will stop making me move. Whaddya think of the wisdom of that?? Yeah, well, it certainly can't hurt. What's gonna happen? I have to move again? As my dear hubby would say, "Bring it on!"

So, we started out in Austin, TX, then moved to Green Bay, WI (go Packers!!) in 2005, moved to Denver, CO in 2006, and are currently packing up the house to move to Sin City in June. Lost Wages. Do People Actually Live In This City. Home of Sigfried & Roy & (the much-despised) Celine Dion. Yes, friends, we're headed to Las Vegas. AAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAA!!

Since I got home two hours ago...after sleeping (poorly) for about 4 hours...and standing in line, sitting at the gate, sitting on a plane and driving the car home for a grand total of 6 hours...I'm going to go take a nap. Maybe I'll be in a better mood when I wake up? Let's hope.
