For the Love Of All Things Random...

First of all, my computer has been broken for over a week. It has been eye-opening for me to see how often I just "jump on" the computer. And how easily I avoid household chores when my computer is around. Maybe this would explain the phenomenon that is my messy house.

This has also made my visits with the Racer oh-so-very-exciting. I basically come to her house and sit down at the computer and check all the posts that she has said, "you have to read so-and-so's post from today". Yes, we really do talk about blogs in real life. Is that weird?

So my husband is officially on his way! I can't give you specific dates for security purposes, but suffice it to say that the homecoming ceremony has been planned. And basically, I CAN HARDLY STAND IT!!! I went to the store and came back with diapers and poster supplies and paints and grand plans of making witty posters while I eat Cinnamon Buns Ben & Jerry's. I am going to try not to keep the Racer up all night with all my excitement and posters and such. Oh, and all the texting! I think I have sent and received more texts this week from my "wives" than cumulatively in the past 2 years. You can only imagine the excitement flowing over the cellular text waves- or whatever they are called.

I had some giant conviction served up to me Wednesday night at bible study. But, through it, the Lord has really shown me my need to slow down. It has also renewed a desire to get in His word each morning before I tackle my day. So, I am thankful for that.

I got my homecoming outfit!! After many shopping trips and much deliberation, I finally settled on a pink satiny shirt with my new favorite, life-changing, Long and Lean Gap Jeans. (Insert a big shout-out to the Racer's sister for introducing us to these jeans!) If you haven't experienced them yet, check them out! Really...they are the magical jeans. Now, friends, I am neither long nor lean. So, that should speak volumes about their value. We took a friend into the Gap wearing Lee Riders...we left there with her looking just the right amount of sexy in her long and leans. I am pretty sure they will change her husband's life for at least a few moments in time.

And I can't forget to mention that I lost another 1.4 pounds. This brings my total to 29 pounds! My goal is to lose at least 1 more before he gets here to hit that 30 pound mark. Then the challenge of maintaining while we eat out at the many restaurants that he has missed.

I am having a difficult time completing a thought these days, so excuse the mess that is this post. I did include "random" in the title, so you should have known what you were getting into.

Happy Weekend!!

**Edited to note: I have not made any posters in the past 2 hours, but I did eat the Ben & Jerry's.**
