seven quick takes, vol. 4
What could be better than that?
If you’re visiting from 5 minutes for Mom, thanks so much for stopping by! Please click here to learn a bit more about me and my site. I’m a somewhat scatterbrained woman who like to explore issues around parenting, faith, and that oh-so-hard to find work/life balance. I believe motherhood is a great calling, but also that women are called to do all kinds of things. And I spend my time trying to figure out just what that is. Welcome! Please stop in and say hello.
Now, on to my Friday tradition of seven random, quick takes before the weekend:
I’ve enjoyed twitter-ing a bit. It takes awhile to get used to, but I kinda like it. . . perhaps because it feeds my easily distracted, multitasking, short-attention span, feedback-craving, time wasting personality? I had fun showing my hubby some very powerful connections that support his job through twitter. Makes me feel justified. Yep, in my own way, I’m supporting the family. Uh huh. So hey, if you want to, follow me on twitter.
I’m excited to read a book that just released this week: Mama’s Got a Fake I.D.: How to Reveal the Real You Behind All That Mom by Caryn Dahlstrand Rivadaneira. That’s all I’ll say for now.
I need some advice from dear friends who read my feed via email. I wrestled with a post this week, but I wasn’t sure was appropriate for my readers. Then I accidentally published it (doh!) and immediately deleted it (whew!). Then today, it showed up in my reader (ack!) So. . . if you received it (it’s called remembering the good, bad, and ugly), shoot me an email at firstname.lastname@example.org and let me know if you think I should post it for real (in this weird virtual world). Thanks!
I’m sending my eldest off to a Soul Full retreat this weekend with dozens of other teens. It’s his confirmation year and I’m hoping he is moved by the experience, or at least has a good time. He’s mostly sad to miss a friend’s Bar Mitzvah. Love the choices in our community!
Two posts swimming in my brain:
Our moral compass: my middle son. It’s great to have a moral compass. It takes a delicate balance to be everyone’s moral compass.
Second grade: Junior high of the new millenium?
Stay tuned. Input welcome.
Make it a great weekend!
