I'm back from my blogging hiatus and I promise I have good excuses as to where I've been. Yes, I said excuses...as in plural.
First, let me show you what I've been up to during the past week.
We celebrated Will's 25th birthday last Tuesday. I had to work and he had classes so it wasn't as good as a weekend birthday, but I'd say it turned out pretty good! We recently were presented an opportunity to work with refugees coming to the Memphis area with our small group. Last Tuesday night we got to go meet the Somalian family that we were assigned to. Everyone sang Happy Birthday to Will--which was pretty cool to have people from all over the world singing to him!-- and when we left we went to dinner. Will's dinner of choice was Carrabba's. We love that restaurant!

|Will orders something different every time--His birthday choice was some kind of chicken and mushroom pasta|
|I like to stick with what I know--spaghetti and meatballs. Yum.|
These are flowers that my boss sent to each woman in the office on the day before Valentine's.
On Tuesday I started feeling a little sickly. Wednesday was worse and Thursday was awful. I ended up staying home from work all day on Thursday. I was in bed all day. Once Will got out of class, he came home and we had a Valentine's movie day in bed. It was so pretty outside and I wished I wasn't sick on Valentine's Day, but what are ya gonna do? I managed to work all day on Friday even though I still wasn't feeling too hot. Luckily my boss noticed and let me nap on the couch in my office for a while. I was thankful for that! Friday night was another movie night and I snuggled on the couch with my little family.
Remi loves to have a blanket in his mouth when he's comfy and snoozing. It's so weird and I have no idea why he does it. We think it's hilarious though.
We were supposed to go up to Illinois last weekend to visit Will's family, but since I had been sick we decided it was best that I stay home. Will did end up going and my parents & brothers also went out of town. So I house sat for my parents all weekend and even though I was by myself, it was so nice just to get rested up & recover from being sick. The photo below is at my parents house...everyone was ready for bed!
So the first reason I haven't blogged is because of being sick. Second, I have been thinking a lot about priorities. Instead of always thinking about what to blog or what blogs I need to catch up on, I need to refocus on thinking about my quiet times and time spent with God each day. I just need to re-prioritize And that's what I've been trying to do lately. Hopefully I can get everything to balance out as it should be and blogging will be something I do in my spare time...not in place of other things.
Have a great week!
