writer's block, etc.

i have it. on so many different levels. the most pressing at this moment being that i have a big story due today. i have lots of good interviews, but i just can't get it to come out. it's probably because i have several hours to deadline. only when the clock is at an hour and ticking does the good stuff seem to flow. i really have to do something about that. blah.

in other news, landon and i are now two episodes into the second season of lost. goodness gracious, are we addicted. bad. michael and kylah took season 3 to san antonio this weekend, and they better go quick. 'cause at this rate, we will be driving there in the night to steal it while they're sleeping.

also i know i owe you, oh, great and mighty blogsphere, photos from one one-year-old's nap in an excersaucer, real birthday and birthday party. but i'm watching lost! and nursing my writer's block. patience.

if you remember a previous blog about a meeting and a money-making opportunity, the news is this: it was a job offer, a job offer that i turned down yesterday. crazy! i know. but putting a friend in a frenzy for a babysitter two weeks from now, working until 11 p.m., copy editing and not having much to show for it above what i've been able to swing thus far WITHOUT a legitimate job, just didn't add up for me. plus, you know, the whole thing about staying home with my kids, nursing the new one and so on and so forth.

besides, each time i prayed about it, i felt God saying "I want you in My house." every time i pray about anything now, He says that.

more on that later.

i gotta go find a writer's block remedy. i wonder if cherry limeade helps. it IS happy hour...

Odds and End jobs add up quickly. Of course the work involved adds up quickly as well, but at least their is flexibility.

Sometimes it's hard to stay in his hand. I'm glad you're doing just that.

I'm proud of you for listening to the Lord about it all. I know He will provide for you greatly to do your heart's desire.

Chocolate cake or cheese cake works sometimes.
Enjoy your family as much as you can. When you work all the time... you miss so much. Feeding them is something you treasure, because someone else has done it all day long. They are only this little for a while. I know that God has a great plan for you! :)
