I’m sorry that I haven’t felt as much like blogging as I thought I would when I re-started blogging a few weeks ago. Life is just so … different now. Not necessarily worse, but definitely different. Our lives have an entirely new schedule to them, and I haven’t yet figured out for sure where blogging fits into that schedule.
On a positive note, this new schedule means I go to bed earlier, and it means I am getting more sleep, which is good. I’m also going walking at least four days a week, and that’s a great help for me physically and emotionally. Although, unfortunately, my anxiety has been creeping back in a bit lately. Never too bad, but I’m always disappointed to see it return. But, I’m trying to do the right things: sleep, exercise, and enough food, including snacks throughout the day to keep my blood sugar stable. That helps. I’ve got a few other ideas of things I can tweak, so we’ll see if those help at all.
Despite not blogging much, I’m not getting things done hardly at all in the house lately. I’m not sure what’s to blame for that. Although, part of the problem was that for some reason, I was SO tired last week. (No, I’m not pregnant. Sigh.) I just couldn’t seem to pull it together enough to start a project and see it through. But, hopefully this week will be better.
For those of you who don’t follow my husband’s blog regularly, I want to put in a plug for his sermon yesterday. Our church did a Service of Remembrance for the ten year anniversary of 9-11, and he preached a wonderful sermon about the lessons that tragedies teach us. He used as his text Luke 13:1-5, which reads:
1 Now there were some present at that time who told Jesus about the Galileans whose blood Pilate had mixed with their sacrifices. 2 Jesus answered, “Do you think that these Galileans were worse sinners than all the other Galileans because they suffered this way? 3 I tell you, no! But unless you repent, you too will all perish. 4 Or those eighteen who died when the tower in Siloam fell on them—do you think they were more guilty than all the others living in Jerusalem? 5 I tell you, no! But unless you repent, you too will all perish.”
Terrorism and towers falling happened in Jesus’ day, too, and his response to those events is a bit surprising, to say the least. So, I would highly recommend that you read my dear pastor-hubby’s sermon on 9-11.
We’ll see what this week brings for our family. I hope it leaves me feeling closer to being finally settled into our new lives here — and into our new house. I like the house a little more every day, so that’s good. I think I’ll like it a lot more once we finally figure out where to go with all of the boxes in the house and get our pictures up on the walls. Right now, life still feels strangely unsettled.
