Methodical Madness

So, here I am, up bright and early for a change.  And, can I tell a secret?  I kind of like it.  It’s peaceful, tranquil, and it makes me think that I may actually have a productive day!  I laid in bed for an hour before I finally got up. All I could think about was all the projects I want to get accomplished today.  Starting with breakfast for Husband.  Of course, it’s still too early to start that, and I had an itch to write.  Just simply write.  And seeing as I can’t (or maybe don’t want to) hunt down my journal, here is where I turn.

I just caught up on the blogs that I have neglected to read due to my absence from the blogging world…  and one of my favorites was my brother’s.  I don’t know why, but it really gave me a chuckle.  Well, if you knew my brother you would understand!  And, from it sprang a fun phrase for me to meditate on….  Methodical Madness.

Methodical Madness….  I think that is the order in which God lives by.  Everything on our end seems like madness, but for Him, oh there is definitely method behind it.  Like 9 + months of pregnancy, or meeting the man you’re going to marry and then not dating for 4 years, or giving someone like me the responsibility of an entire youth program at a parish, or free will…..

The list could go on and on and on.  And as I look back on what I just wrote, a lot of them are ways in which I think God is teaching me patience.  I really wish Husband would stop praying for that.  😉  The point (if there is one) is that what is on the outside, the nuttshell, if you will, is only harvesting something much much bigger and better, the fruit or the nutt of life…
All the things we see that we can’t find a reason to, well, it’s there, we just may never know what it is.

Hmmm  I wonder if that analogy will make any sense when I come back and read that tomorrow….

Here’s to a day filled with blessings and love.  And productivity.


The End

I’ve always heard the last few weeks of pregnancy can really be a drag.  I’m really trying not to see it that way.  Of course, I have reached the point in which I just don’t believe that a baby is actually in there….  and Husband said he reached that point this morning.  I really have convinced myself that I will be 400 pounds with a 4 year old in my uterus…  Might make a good TV show.

I’ve decided to make a list of everything I have done that I wouldn’t have if I didn’t have a baby to wait on:

Found a great little antique/ flea market in Levelland
Started blogging again
Cleaned and organized the house in like and hour (I felt like I was on speed that night)
Sat at the goosepond (a pond in Levelland geese visit in the winter) on the one gorgeous day we had this week
Haven’t gone to work in 2 weeks
Missed a great concert (it was 2 1/2 hours away)
Got addicted to Live! with Regis and Kelly, along with The View
Spent part of Spring Break with my mom in town (missed going anywhere for Spring Break)
Still sitting in PJ’s at 1 in the afternoon (shower soon to follow this post)
Sit around wanting excruciating pain to start (seems a little crazy)

And here is a list of all the things I will get finished today due to this kid staying cozy:

Finish the pajama pants I started to make for Husband and I
Clean the house again
Make Husband dinner
Hang out with the bestie?  (I should call her…)
Go to work for 30 minutes to finish some things I need to finish

I think if I add anymore on to the list I won’t get anything finished and then I would be really sad…  So, here’s to a productive day!!!  Wish me luck!!!

Wishcasting Wednesday: Take a Break

Today is Wishcasting Wednesday.  And I have been so absent from the blogging world that it took a lot for me to come back even though it is so relieving whenever I post.  So, I am re-emerging myself into this space, with quite a question from Jamie this week.

What do you wish to take a break from?


I’m actually tired of taking a break.  I haven’t been to work in a week and a half and I don’t really want to go back.  Being around people right now is so taxing.

I guess you could say that I want to take a break from being on break.  I’m ready (ish) for this new change.  I’m ready for life to get back to normal.  Well, as normal as it can get after a baby is born.  I wish to take a break from my own brain, from the waiting, and most of all from my whiny self.  But, all that aside, life is life, and I really am blessed with an amazing husband, a great job, a loving family, and that is what I never want a break from.
