Grilling Goodness #6


1. What is one of your 'must see' tv shows?
Hmmm, I have a few. I love Lost, but it hasn't started yet. I also watch Survivor, The Amazing Race, The Biggest Loser, CSI, CSI-NY, Grey's Anatomy, Life on Mars, Without a Trace, and The Mentalist. I am addicted to my DVR, because that means I can watch what I want, whenever I want to watch it.


2. Do you have a facebook page?
Why, yes, yes I do. I didn't really like it as much MySpace. Frankly it annoyed me, but it's growing on me.


3. How old were you when you got married?
I was 22 and he was 24.


4. What is one bad habit that you need to break?
Spending entirely too much time at the computer.


5. What is your favorite cold-weather activity?
Watching a fire burn in the fireplace.


6. At church, do you always sit in the same area?
Yep, that would be the choir loft.


7. What do you like best about blogging?
Getting to tell complete strangers random things about my life, reading random things about complete strangers, and learning that complete strangers make really great friends.


8. What's the last funny thing you remember hearing from a child?
I can't remember any funny things right now, because the kids are on my last ever lovin' nerve.


Okay, off topic now:

I guess God's trying to teach me something here. After all this hoo-ha, we still haven't closed. They finally have all the paperwork in from the sellers, but there just isn't enough time in the day to get the rest of it ready today. Of course, if everyone dropped everything else, it could be done. But we are nobody special to them. We are just one case among many, and no one will be dropping anything to give us special attention.

Meanwhile, our lock on our funding expires at midnight tonight, and in order to extend our lock, it is going to cost us.

Again.

Thank you all so much for keeping us in prayer. We have not been sure if we are kicking against the pricks, so to speak, or if God's just trying to teach us patience. We believe that this is God's place for us, but we wouldn't be the first people to be wrong about that. Someone once told me that life isn't always about trying to figure out where God wants you, so much as being God's vessel when you get wherever He puts you.

I know I'm rambling, but I'm tired, and I've spent many hours and tears on this place. I just want it to be over so I can go home.

Hi Diane,
I'm sorry about your house woes and hope everything eventually works out in your favor.

I have a MySpace, but I forget I have it.
I like to bake when it is cold.
Have a bit of that computer bug, too.
We do have a regular spot in church to sit. In fact, when the boys were young, they weren't quite sure what to do when someone would sit there. One time, my son asked a visitor to move because his 'Mom and Dad always sit here.' That was a little embarrassing, but it certainly opened the door for some conversation with them...lol.
Blogging serves many purposes for me, but mostly it keeps me in touch with friends.
My son thanked me for "the adulthood advice" yesterday...not particularly haha funny, but definitely different.
Hope your weekend is blessed!
