The Year of Continuos Disaster

on December 3, 2013

It’s been a looooong while since I’ve been back at the old computer just a’blogging away, but I feel the time is ripe for coming back here!

Much has happened in the last year or so that has kept us quite busy– The Auditor ruptured a bunch of disks in his neck and had them surgically corrected last spring.  About a month after he healed enough to go back to work, I was attacked by two pit bulls (ugh.  Ongoing issues.  Details in a later post perhaps!)  Little Scribbler started first grade, (and with a bang, I might add!) and then we got furloughed from work during the Great Political Stalemate of October 2013, which left us with too much free time and not enough paychecks.  Immediately following the furlough, the breaks went out on our car and it was totaled, leaving me with three broken ribs.  I just started to get past that and BAM! the holidays rolled around :)

Somewhere in the midst of all of this drama, we managed to finish our homestudy, and I am THRILLED to report that the Scribbler Family is now officially adoption ready!  Should a little someone turn up who might be needing a family, we would be overjoyed to fill the void as best we can!  We’re not really focusing on it too awful much, because we don’t want the Little Scribbler to get her hopes up, but it’s there, in the background, floating around as a possibility!  I’ll be journaling a bit of the journey here from time to time.

As Advent has just begun, starting off the liturgical calendar for the year, I figured now might be a good time to come back into the fold, with regards to theological study.  I’ve got a few projects in the cooker, including trying to jumpstart our parish’s Nativity Pageant, which has been long dormant.  I’m also embarking on another year of kindergarten catechesis, with some minor changes to the program.  Lots to do, lots to do!  Hoping to tell you all about it!  Thanks for tuning in!
