Confession: I actually kind of like Mondays. Back to routine. Back to real life. ("Back" from what, I don't know exactly. I do know that Sundays are kind of wearying to a church staff family.)
Bits of Monday for you:
1. Our power was out last night. We're thankful it wasn't worse for us and praying for anyone who had a harder time in the storms that swept through. We were blissfully ignorant of how serious the storms were in certain places.
3. You probably want to read this interesting article about Chanukah and Thanksgiving. Kind of makes me wish we observed both.
Her: "He's just so cute. I hate to think about how many girls are going to be hanging around him when he's older."
Me: "That's how I felt about my baby brother too."
Her: "I guess you're not worried about that any more, huh?"
(Now, The Bear is quite grown up and I am not probably supposed to talk about him here any more but let's just say, yes, I am still concerned about this, though he does not, to my knowledge, currently have a Significant Other.)
Me: "I guess I'm not too worried about it, but why would you say that?"
Her: "Well, he's not much of a conversationalist."
Me: "Do you think that's important?"
Her: "It's what I'm looking for: I'm a talker and the guy I marry will have to talk too. Looks aren't enough."
Good to know. I need only watch out for those handsome boys that seem chatty, I guess. That should narrow it down considerably.
What's going on in your world this lovely Monday?
