Playing Catch Up

I looked at the date of my last post, horrified to discover that it has been an entire week since I've written anything. It's not that I don't have material...I just don't seem to have the time.

I am a list maker. I have been known to make lists of my lists, depending on how busy I am. So, due to my lack of energy time, I am making a list of things about which I want to blog.


1. Nathan and Grace's trip to Tyler with my parents.

2. Our reconciliation with Trevor's parents.

3. Linda's visit last Friday.

4. Father's Day.

5. My struggle with anger and selfishness.

6. The excitement of beginning a new Bible study with Linda via email.

7. My journey down the treacherous path playing Canasta with Trevor's family.

8. The seemingly insurmountable stack of books that I have laying on my table waiting to be read. (Thank you Linda!!)

Oh, this list could go on and on, but I think I'll stop there. I may or may not ever get around to posting about all of these things, but I feel better for getting them on a list. Now for the surprisingly satisfying task of crossing them off, one by one!

I LOVE canasta! Grew up playing it with my grandmother.

Welcome back to the blog world. I was beginning to think your fancy phone had spoiled you so much you had tossed the laptop!

I'm glad you are back. Can't wait to read all those posts!

Well, I'll say you've been too busy to blog! Can't wait to hear about some of this stuff:)

I know exactly what you mean about being busy! I've wondered where you were though! I am a list maker too.. although my lists rarely get completed! :)

I love Canasta too! We had a foreign exchange student from Germany stay with us once and she knew how to play. I didn't, so in preparation for her visit, I went online to Yahoo and learned. It was so fun!

I love your list. I have one of my own, but it's on paper in front of me. I knew we were freakishly alike! :)

I've missed you... glad you're back!

Canasta...that is a complicated game! I check in every day. Life is more important, right? I will be checking in again tomorrow and see which one you picked first!

I make lists about what I want to blog about too...but it often doesn't get done!

I haven't played Canasta in YEARS. I probably wouldn't even know how anymore!!
