Monday Meditation

I realized over the weekend that this flare of reflux and heartburn is related to some anxiety and stress I’ve been experiencing the past few months. So lately I’ve been meditating on peace, God’s PEACE, the kind of peace that only comes from Him. Daily life on earth doesn’t offer much in the way of peace.

But He does.

And the peace of God which transcends all understanding, will guard your hearts and your minds in Christ Jesus.

Philippians 4:7 NIV

Countdown to ORT: Day 11

So we’ve hit the ridiculous point here.

Monday night Jack and I get mildly skunked. But really is there any such thing as getting mildly skunked? If you count that the business end of little stinky pants pointed away from us so we just got the blow back, then, yeah, I guess that’s mildly skunked.

Nothing, and I mean absolutely nothing, gets that taste out of your mouth.

Praying Jack’s nose still works. I’m going to give him a couple of easy hides tonight to see how it goes.

This morning I crunch the index and middle fingers of my right hand in the window as I’m closing it. Thankfully I’m left-handed. But really, eleven days before my FIRST EVER DOG SPORTING EVENT!

What can I do but laugh?

It’s all good. We will have fun regardless of the outcome.

Washed Out, Whiny Wednesday

Since I’m trying to stick to a schedule of blogging Monday, Wednesday, and Friday, and I have nothing else to say, I’m going to whine.

Work kicked my tail today. I mean really kicked it. I’m tired, stressed, and grouchy.

Give me your best de-stressing ideas. Please! Hopefully something will work so I can quit whining!

My husband, dog, and both cats thank you very much.
