june randoms

So June has not wrapped up, therefore every area of my life is still in balance. Throw a few other things on top and's fun. In a crazy, stressful, fun sort of way.

Weekly Randoms:

I've got a new hobby, and it's searching Craigslist for free things. I have found a lot of great things, but haven't actually gone to get anything. The other night though Mike and I went "alley cruising" and we found a sweet desk from this old couple that they had on their lawn for free. We have to refinish it, but it will be much better than the little fake-wood, Target number I currently use. I suppose I should just do one project at a time though, as to not be the person who starts everything and never finishes.

I'd say my second new hobby is reading biographies of popular companies. I read "It's Not About the Coffee" (Starbucks), "On Target" (Target Corp), currently have "Innovation Secrets of Steve Jobs" (Apple), and that will be followed by "Onward" the new book by Howard Schultz (Starbucks), you've seen it at the register if you've stepped into a Starbucks in the last 3 months.

*and if you haven't been in a Starbucks in the last 3 months....I'm sorry. But I suppose since I am studying all the time, it makes sense that I am there every day.

Miles needs a haircut so, so bad. Lacey is growing up too fast, and acting way to much like a girl, and not like a toddler anymore. We were walking the other day and I said, Hey Lacey look at our shadows. She responds: Mom, we have shadows because the sun is out and it's behind us so it makes the shadow on the sidewalk. Ummm...seriously? Who told her that?

Anyway, life is good. A bit fragile between enjoying the adventure, and stressed out that everything is falling out from under us. Resting in the knowledge that God knows what he's doing and when the floor gets put back under our feet. We'll be in awe of how great everything worked out.
