I have several serious posts in my head, but can't muster the mental energy to write them down. So, here are a few lite anecdotes from our recent life...
A few weeks ago, we had a clogged pipe and in trying to fix it, Guitar Man and I created a flood in our kitchen. As we were calmly cleaning it up, he said, "thank goodness our screamy-screamy days are behind us." St. Joseph is surely looking out for us! Here is our kitchen after 3 days without a sink. I'm trusting you guys with this information.
I had to get a new blender and say goodbye to my trusty, 30 year old Osterizer. My grandma bought it for me at a garage sale about 10 years ago and it had a glass pitcher. It just wasn't blending well anymore. I will miss its 70s avocado green and orange that fit so well in our 2 year old kitchen. What does that say about my color choices?
I triple checked the recipe when I roasted these chickens. Yes, it called for this much butter and, yes, there was a direct correlation between the deliciousness of this chicken and amount of butter consumed. You may be able to tell from the picture that I roasted the chickens upside down. Oops. Maybe that's why the breast wasn't dry at all!

I'm reading Breaking Night by Liz Murray. Great book about growing up with drug addicted parents, the power of love and the importance of education.
I've really been struggling to keep up with commenting on everyone's blog and writing on my own. Please know that I've been reading and praying though.
There is only one Creighton Practitioner in our area and she is an intern. I've been seeing her for about a year now. In the confessional last weekend, I got a bit of a theology of the body lecture from my confessor and he asked, "Have you considered seeing T--- S----." I said, with as much humility as I could muster, "Actually, I'm one of her clients." I had many different feelings after walking out of the confessional concerning this, but now I just think it's funny. And I thank the good Lord above for the grace of reconciliation in the face of a myriad of feelings.
Have a great weekend everyone and Jen has lots more 7 Quick Takes!
