A look into all that god is doing in the Shaeffer family.

2 Months March 14, 2010

Yep, that’s how long it has been since I have posted something. How sad is that? There are many times during each day that I am thinking about something and I start planning out what I’m going to bog about it, yet somehow it never happens. I was looking at a friend’s blog today and saw my name on the side and under it it said “last update 2 months”. I couldn’t believe it. So, since there are obviously a lot of things that happen in the span of two months I am going to model this post after my friend Laurin’s weekly entry called, “Ten Things Thursday”. Obviously it is not Thursday, but hey just roll with me people, at least it’s a post…

1.) I started off 2010 by reading the book “Crazy Love” by Francis Chan. All I can say is WOW!!!! If you have not read this book yet, read it IMMEDIATELY. I finished it over a month ago, however I am still processing most of it.

2.) Cameron, Michael and I basically took turns being sick for about 6 weeks. It was mostly the 2 of them (I was only sick for about 3 days), and it WORE ME OUT!! It’s hard taking care of everyone.

3.) In our women’s Bible study at church I am doing the “Wisdom for Mothers” study. so far it has been very good. It has been really encouraging and I can already tell a difference in my parenting.

4.) Since we moved here a year and a half ago, we have had the sweetest family (The Nichols) that has loved on us. They made our transition to a new city and all of the changes that come with a newborn so much easier. So far, twice this year already, Dayna has sent me and my friends on “girlfriend dates” where we got pampered while she watched our children. This family is such a testimony of what service really is. I hope my family is someday the same way.

5.) Michael and I went to Orlando in February for the Youth Pastor’s Summit. We got to catch up with a lot of our Highview people and enjoy some wonderful time just the two of us, since my generous in-laws drove here to stay with Cameron while we were gone.

6.) Michael is in Mexico right now on a mission trip with our student ministry. My mom flew down to spend the week with me and Cameron. We are having a great time and Cameron is loving getting spoiled (I might be getting  a little spoiled too)

7.) In April we are going on our first vacation with friends. Mike and I are going with our good friends the Plunketts and the Straznickys to Cripple Creek, CO. This is also kid free. Again, Michael’s mom is coming down to watch Cameron for the week.

8.) While I loved going to Orlando and I am REALLY excited about Colorado. I HATE leaving Cameron. I have a feeling it is going to take Mike a LONG time to talk me into leaving him again! 🙂

9.) Mike and I discovered the show “White Collar” a few weeks ago. It just might be one of my favorite shows ever. Speaking of…LOST is pretty much amazing this season. I know there are a lot of haters this year but I still absolutely love it. I can’t wait to see how it all ends.

10.) So far this year I have made my Mother-in-law a quilt and I am almost finished with Mike’s quilt. 2 quilts in less than 3 months has been a lot of work. I have loved making them, however I think I might take a short break from quilting once his is finished. I have the ugliest calluses on my fingers.

Well, there you have it. Hopefully I won’t wait another 2 months next time! 🙂

P.S. I don’t feel like editing so I give you full permission to judge my spelling and grammar. (I just don’t want to hear about it. 🙂  )
