so, lately, i'm feeling really overwhelmed about stupid stuff. i mean, don't get me wrong, it's all stuff that is rather worrisome, like paying our bills and getting organized so we can move .. again. (interesting story: we moved here, thinking we'd be here for at least 2 years. one month air conditioning free - august, of course - 2 weeks without hot water - thankfully only september, not january - and seeing our ceiling go from slightly bowed to "OMG, is it going to fall today???" has made us decide to move again. there is always a reason giant apartments with W/D connections are super cheap. that's the moral of this story.) anyway, so, i'm feeling overwhelmed, and also, let's be honest, i'm feeling a lot of other emotions, bordering on the insane, but really, i know everything is fine.
god will provide for us. that is true. i know it. he shows it to me over and over. the sparrows don't go hungry, and neither will i.
feelings are fickle friends or however that rhyme goes.
i bought a wooden cabinet yesterday at the thrift store for 7 dollars, and i really feel like that is my best thrift store find ever, possibly even better than my closet full of cashmere sweaters. although i am really still in love with my sweaters.
also yesterday, i found some books my brother and i wrote as kids. HILARIOUS. "Blue Bunny and Friends" and "Meet Blue Bunny". Blue Bunny is a blue bunny (HAHA) who loves running stop lights and exploding bombs. There is also an episode where he tries to teach a class in "BunneeBon-x" (this was during the controversy over teaching "ebonics" in Georgia schools in the '90s... our mother made us listen to Rush Limbaugh on the radio in the car when we were kids).
in conclusion, nothing truly interesting is happening over here. seriously, the only reason i update this is so anna can read it, and so i don't feel like such a loser keeping my blog around just so i can use the "what i read every day" links like bookmarks.
