Melissa’s World

This is probably going to be scattered, so hold on.

I am busy with my training, which I feel like is taking over my life. It isn’t, I’m just being dramatic. I started a bible study at church, which I’ve been wanting to do since Mom To Mom ended 2 years ago. And I’m 4 days into it, I’m behind on my homework, and I’m frustrated that the plans I had for it did not come together. Geoff (or Ali, I don’t remember) said maybe God has His own plans for me & the study. So now I’m stuck wondering what to do next. I’m not sure how to let myself be open to where God wants to lead me. Does anyone else feel this way too?

Onto a happier thought, Geoff and I will be celebrating our 11th anniversary this week (Friday). But the real celebration won’t be until next week, dinner and a night away from the kids! Sigh. It’s hard to explain the joy & concern over leaving my boys for the night. We haven’t been alone in 3 years! Anyways, we booked a hotel downtown, and we’re going to do something I’ve wanted to do since we moved to Denver, which is take in Restaurant Week. I’m very excited.

Friday we got a DVR. Wahoo! It came in handy Friday night when I had a headache and wanted to go to bed early. Geoff recorded Psych for me, and I was able to watch it Saturday. And fast forward the commercials. Bwa-ha-ha.

I am trying to catch up on my blogging, I finally posted again on Elijah’s blog, the first time since November. My plan is to combine the two boys blogs into one. I’m just lazy about setting up a template I like.

I’m going to close with a quote from Jaws, since Roy Scheider just passed. Jaws is a classic for a reason folks, it’s a great movie.

Quint: Sometimes that shark he looks right into ya. Right into your eyes. And, you know, the thing about a shark… he’s got lifeless eyes. Black eyes. Like a doll’s eyes. When he comes at ya, doesn’t seem to be living… until he bites ya, and those black eyes roll over white and then… ah then you hear that terrible high-pitched screamin’.
