Blug about Doritos and Olives

Let me just say, I wish I had a bag of Doritos and if I had a bag……I’d crush ‘em! Have you ever had a great day, then in the midst of it….BLAH happens? Well, guess that was it for me. But it was all my fault! (hmm guess when you blog while you are is a BLUG! ha ha…okay so I guess my sick humor is a sign I am okay after all!).

Shall I explain? I look forward to Thursdays each week. Thursday is GDO (Girls Day Out) for Jordyn and me. We start off the morning bright and early and make our trek on 295 to see our buds at CBS (Community Bible Study). Then, normally, we do errands, grab a coffee and sometimes a quick lunch or snack. We take our time and enjoy being out of the “Heights” for the day.

Today, Jordyn I decided we were going to go to Taco Bell for lunch. The ‘power of suggestion’ got us from their recent commercials and we wanted a Gordita! Mmm. I haven’t been to Taco Bell in years! We order our lunch, I pray a “prayer of faith” over our lunch and we ate ourselves silly. (BTW, I highly recommend the Gordita and the Chicken Chalupa!).

I had a wedding gift to pick up so we headed to Target. I hadn’t been in the store 5 minutes when I saw what I thought could be Becky’s swimsuit of the season! It was a cute, deep celery green bandeau one piece. I couldn’t believe it….I actually LOVED it! (which is rare for me and swimsuits). I was so excited I rushed to the fitting room thinking this could possible be “the one!!”. What was I thinking??? Jordyn anxiously waited for me to appear from the dressing room and declare the 2008 swimsuit miracle. Well, I emerged from the dressing room , swimsuit in hand. I guess Jordyn could tell from my facial expression……she better not ask any questions!!!!!

Let’s just say….I am planning to get my hair done next week…..want to add a reddish –tint. Well, good thing my salon appointment wasn’t this week or I would have looked like an olive!

My advice for the week: Never try on swimsuits after eating fast food.

I'm off to the kitchen to pop some popcorn, but I’ll leave you with the only verse that comes to mind:

2 Corinthians 4:16-18 (The Message)

So we're not giving up. How could we! Even though on the outside it often looks like things are falling apart on us, on the inside, where God is making new life, not a day goes by without his unfolding grace. These hard times are small potatoes compared to the coming good times, the lavish celebration prepared for us. There's far more here than meets the eye. The things we see now are here today, gone tomorrow. But the things we can't see now will last forever.

Bye Bye Nananda and The Waxle's take on it!

Well, my man has finally joined us in Blogville. Be sure to check out Jim's blog ( He has such a way with words. You go baby!!! Anyway, his blog has a special entry for today (see below). Enjoy!

Waxing on Lone Star Shockers

As Cowboy fans try to get over their shocking loss to the New York "football" Giants, I am dealing with another "Lone Star Shocker." That little girl who used to like "Popeye" cartoons, wear really thick glasses and had to have her hair "some up and some down" has gone to Texas! I guess you are never fully prepared for some of life's realities but she is gone.

Yes, Amanda left last night for the long drive. I spoke to her this afternoon and she was in Louisianna. So as T.O. deals with the sudden loss of his Super Bowl dreams, we deal with the sudden long distance between Amanda and us and who knows, maybe her presence in Texas will brighten the smiles down there! Seriously, the time comes when all you can do is pray, the best thing to do anyway... We know that the Lord is as close as the mention of His name to anybody, anywhere. Pray to Him! He has your very eternal life in His control!

Where shall I go from your Spirit?Or where shall I flee from your presence?
If I ascend to heaven, you are there!If I make my bed in Sheol, you are there!
If I take the wings of the morning and dwell in the uttermost parts of the sea,
even there your hand shall lead me, and your right hand shall hold me.
If I say, “Surely the darkness shall cover me, and the light about me be night,”
even the darkness is not dark to you; the night is bright as the day,
for darkness is as light with you. (Psalm 139:7-12)
