7 Quick Takes Friday!

#7 I’m relieved that it’s Friday. I’m happy to get back to quick takes after the intensity of yesterday’s post and the combox discussion. I really appreciated the civil and downright pleasant conversation I had with Kaoru, but other people…not so much. I’m not much of a current events blogger, unlike The Anchoress, and enduring [Read More…]

Savita’s Death and Common Sense

  I’m sure by now most have you have seen this story that’s going viral on the internet and being used by abortion advocates everywhere as one more reason to hate the evil Catholic Church. I wasn’t going to write on it after I saw the Anchoress’s excellent post on the subject, despite predictably snotty [Read More…]

Just What I Need

Seriously, this is the hypochondriac’s dream. It beats WebMD by a million miles. Just what I need to maximize my paranoia. Try it out! Maybe I’ll be back with a real post if I can tear myself away from histrionic self-diagnosis. [Read more…]

The Slow Burn

I got a few interested responses to yesterday’s post, so I’ve decided to continue random musings on the subject with fixed posts at the beginning and end of each month. I’m going to call the series The Slow Burn, because I like it. At the end of the month I’ll just re-cap how the month [Read More…]

Slow and Steady

  I skipped running yesterday. I have a slight cold, and usually my asthma flares up when I have a cold, and I didn’t want to deal with a flare-up so I didn’t run. I got back on the horse this morning, though, and went for a quick walk/jog after I walked Sienna to school. [Read More…]

7 Quick Takes Friday!

#7 So I started running again this week. I ran every morning except yesterday, when I woke up feeling sick and figured that was enough of an excuse to sit around and watch TV all day. (I cleaned and baked bread in the afternoon out of sheer guilt, though.) I hate the postpartum return to [Read More…]

Of All Things Visible and Invisible

I’m over at The Wine-Dark Sea today, musing about the line “of all things visible and invisible” in the Creed. It’s part of Melanie’s brilliant blogging through the Creed series for the Year of Faith. Click over there if you can, and read the rest of the posts she has up in this series while [Read More…]

Bright Side

I’m up late tonight working on a post for tomorrow, but this just occurred to me, and I had to share it with y’all. The bright side from last night? Four more years of this:   [Read more…]

Johnny Foreigner

Today is election day. I feel a little nauseous about the whole thing, honestly, and am mostly trying to avoid political posts/news/facebook opinions. It isn’t that I’m not interested in who wins…on the contrary, I’m very much hoping for a certain outcome. It’s just that over the course of this election cycle I have found [Read More…]

Quick Takes, The Whiney Edition

I’m so sorry for the radio silence. I have really good reasons for it. I’m going to list them in numerical form and call it Quick Takes. Clever, right? #7 We had house guests. My brother-in-law and his wife came for a visit with my two adorable nieces and we had a wonderful time. #6 [Read More…]
