You Really Are A Heel

I dropped the DBC ball. For shame! Only 2 weeks to this challenge and I still faltered. I repent in dust and ashes.

But life goes on. I could just wallow in my self-loathing or I could pick myself up and begin again. Let's go with the latter.

So today there is much to do. It will be a marathon of a day. All the shopping will be completed, with two little boys in tow, no less. I'm throwing Jude in the sling and strapping Asher in the stroller (with a generous supply of goldfish and apple-goose as it is called around here) and Kris and I will brave the madness together. I'm pretty sure this is what Mark meant when he had us promise "for better or worse." I know there are worse things than a store on the Saturday before Christmas, but I am hard-pressed to recall one right now.

Ok. Have you seen my posts lately? Let it be known that I have gone the distance. I have looked like a moron on my blog because of DBC. So, I'm a little disappointed. But the fact that you accepted my friendship on facebook cancels out my disappointment. Your posts during DBC have been way better than all of mine combined.

i agree with susanna that your posts have been way better then mine. i'm new though and we don't have a computer at home. so blogging only happens at work. (i know i'm a slacker)

Ha-ha! Every Sunday after church we made a Target stop :) Yes, several gifts were purchased there!

I'm so glad you are a blogger now, Katelin! It's fun catching up with you :)
