Monday Morning Confessional: The Internet Sidebar List

shrink origami 03.jpg.001

I confess that I’m a sucker for the internet sidebar lists. I don’t want to be. I just am. You advertise anything on the side of an internet site and I will most likely ignore it. I think I might have intentionally clicked on one, maybe two sidebar advertisements in the course of the past year. [Read More...]

I confess that the release date for Shrink is less than two weeks away, and I’m getting nervous. A couple of weeks ago my wife opened a package from Zondervan containing a single copy of the book hot off the presses, the first we had seen. She walked it outside and held it up for me to [Read More...]

Monday Morning Confessional

I confess that I love pop-tarts despite the fact that they have to be just about the worst food you could possibly put into your body. I can’t help it. I love them. My favorite pop-tarts in order would be Chocolate, Strawberry, Smores, and Cherry. I try to only let myself eat them 3-4 times [Read More...]

Monday Morning Confessional

I confess that my alarm went off at 5:30 this morning & I turned it off and went back to sleep. I woke up at 8:30. I went to bed at 10:30 last night. I don’t think I’ve slept ten straight hours in years, except maybe when I’ve been sick.  I must have really needed some [Read More...]

Monday Morning Confessional

I confess that the blurbs are all in, and the foreword came through for Shrink last week, which means that everything I’m responsible to help with in terms of content for the book is crossed off the list. I have been overjoyed at the response from the early readers. Scot McKnight wrote the foreword, and [Read More...]

Monday Morning Confessional

I confess that I have initiated operation woodpecker lockout. I didn’t really give it a name, but it’s getting pretty real around here nonetheless. I have previously confessed my fear of heights. (Technically, I’m not afraid of heights I’m afraid of falling. And not so much falling as hitting the ground at a high rate [Read More...]

Monday Morning Confessional

I confess that I’ve begun hitting snooze too often on my 5:30am wake up. I started this schedule in mid-March and until now I have successfully limited myself to one snooze, if any. Last week of school, though… not good. I think I’m at that point in forming a new habit where the novelty is [Read More...]

Monday Morning Confessional

I confess that I am headed up to Conception Abbey on retreat for the next few days. I’m not sure how much of a committed blogger I’ll be during that time. There’s no wifi at the abbey (although I hear there might have been some discussion about beginning to offer it… not sure how I [Read More...]

Monday Morning Confessional

I confess that I think the Red Headed Woodpeckers that pecked through our chimney and made a nest in the wall have apparently moved on. I’ve not seen the pair around lately, so it’s probably time to start patching over their handiwork. I can do the woodwork. The difficult part is the ladder, because I’m [Read More...]

Monday Morning Confessional

I confess that I just finished season one of The Vikings, and started in on the second season last night. I confess that the Season 2 premier was a bit disappointing. They jumped so far ahead in the story that I felt a little bit lost, like I had missed a few episodes or they [Read More...]
