...i lose...


the nablopomo challenge. how could i forget to post a blog yesterday????? ugh..

for those of you who aren't familiar with national blog posting month, some of us bloggers have committed to blog every day in the month of november.. and i screwed up already. on NOVEMBER 8TH for goodness sake.. only 8 days in!

(prepare for some rationalization-- a.k.a. an excuse..... preparing???? ready?)
yesterday was the last day of the merry marketplace sale, and i didn't make it home until super late. and we had to leave at 10am this morning to head to a church planting conference in waco, texas. soooooo, after i got home from the sale last night i was scurrying around cleaning my house, washing clothes, and writing a 5 page instruction book for the incredible friend who is watching our girls while we are gone most of the week.

next thing i know i'm looking at the clock and it's 12:02... in the morning... i.e. 2 minutes past my deadline to post a blog. i thought about trying to figure out a way to rig it so that it would post for saturday, but i was too exhausted to think that hard.

just another example of my life these days-messing something up and living in the need of grace pretty much every second. i'm learning, Lord, i'm learning....

so, i'm picking myself up and starting again.. (is that dramatic enough for you? especially regarding blogging?) :)
i WILL finish this race strong. hang in there other nablopomo-ites!! i'll start commenting on your blogs the moment i can find 10 minutes to read...

Don't sweat it. I missed on Friday -- Day 7. It's still a good exercise for me to force myself to write. Hope the sale was fruitful for you.

And should the Cedarcrest folk be concerned at all about you attending a church planting conference in the land of the Branch Davidians?

Way #202 for staying chill:

Don't create goals for yourself that will lead to stress and shame and that ultimately don't matter a bit.

:) Have fun in Waco!

Is there like a prize involved for those who make it the whole time?
Or is it a personal goal?
