(Note: I ramble a bit...you were warned)

Its so hot around my place that I don't know what to do... I get a shower and feel like I have to towel off three times before I manage to get dressed... (I know, that might be a bit too much info, but the point I'm making is that without AC... well, its hot) yet even with the heat, there's something sweet around my little house these days... and its not the smell of 4 o'clocks blooming.

I was sitting in the living room the other evening with my mom, favorite Aunt (I can say that on here since none of my 8 Aunts read my blog) and brother Eric and I was thinking about how good life is these days. Ok, so my financial situation isn't exactly where I would like it to be, but hey, my wants and desires are finally coming to terms with my income... a lesson it only took me way to long to learn. And, I'm not exactly over run with romantic suitors... but you know, I'm not exactly sure that's a top priority right now either. I look around and see some home repairs that I need to work on once the paychecks start coming back in, but other than that... well, my life right now is... if not good... extremely laid back. And that horrible birthday that I was dreading so much... well, 30's actually been pretty good to me... I seem to feel more comfortable in my own skin these days... which is a good feeling. And work... well, God takes better care of those things than we ever could... no complaints there!

For those of you who don't know, my precious Eric is moving out to Arkansas in about a week. Rusty and Lisa have helped him figure out how he can go to school and rodeo for Rusty (who finally got a real job as a college professor!?!?!). Now you might ask why he's my precious Eric... well, he's the best roommate I've ever had... it was great... I did laundry and he fixed things... we neither one watched scarry movies... never had bathroom issues... and he would eat anything I took a notion to cook... how much better of a roommate could you ask for? He's also precious because for the past few years, it's been the two of us who took care of things, helped the parents, did most of the "farm-work" that our other brothers used to handle... since both of them got married and moved away! I'd have to say, he and I are pretty dang tight... so, to say that I'll miss him is putting it a bit mildly! (I'll probably shed a few tears, but you know that's just me, so it doesn't really count) But at the same time, I am so excited for him! What a great opportunity... one that he did a lot of praying about before he decided to take the plunge.

Yep... there's a lot of changes going on in my little world... but inspite of it all, I am feeling like things are going my way... Should I break out in a chorus of "Oh, What a Beautiful Morning?"


  1. I know that J. will miss Eric too but I hope that this works out well for him and he has a great time out there!

  2. Praise the Lord for contentment! That's awesome, Kate. I know you will miss Eric! J, too. I can't wait to see what you are wanting to do around your house. Sorry I haven't gotten back with you, her name is Margie Watson.

  3. I'm glad you are feeling contentment :) But I'm sorry about Eric. It sounds like he was the best roommate ever. I'm glad you're doing ok with it all, though. I'm glad you're feeling like things are going your way.
