People to See

Elizabeth over at anxiouscontentment posted about her meeting with a high-ranking volleyball player. That got me wondering if there was anyone well-known who I would like to meet. Don't know if it's a good or bad thing, but I couldn't really come up with anybody! After some thought, I thought maybe Barbara Bush, so she could sign the shirt with her picture on it I got from Glenn Beck's store. Plus, she just has a great name! :) Although I think part of my idea might have come from the fact that my niece got to meet George Sr. and Barbara in Maine over the summer. I can't think of any famous people I admire who are still alive! Kind of sad, really.

Oh, it's all so clear now!

Okay, so I didn't turn the radio off fast enough after Monday night football last night, and they cut right to Coast to Coast AM. Turns out the reason Bush nominated Miers is because...he's been taken over by aliens! Glad we've figured that out, huh?

The Pace of Life

Some people (and families) seem to like to be constantly on the run. They're never at home, except to sleep and maybe eat; their lives are filled with scheduled activities. I am not one of those people. Perhaps it's because I am introverted, and need big doses of quiet, "alone time" to rest and re-energize. Perhaps it's because I show a lot of the indicators of ADD, and I'd go nuts trying to juggle more than I already am. In any case, as my kids are growing older I'm really appreciating how much homeschooling helps with a laid-back lifestyle. We're involved in a lot more activities than my husband and I hoped to be in the naive years of our early parenting. However, several of them can be fit into the daytime, so that we're not on the run all late afternoon and evening. For example, my daughter's Latin class, taught by one of our pastors, is held on Wednesday mornings. She also takes piano lessons, and those can be taken during the day as well. Not to mention how this really minimizes having to run one child one place and then run another child someplace else. It's so fulfilling, and yet so relaxing!
