Really Busy!

We've been super-busy lately...with having family members over to our house, attending weddings, running errands, and the like.

I've gotten into the habit of walking 2 miles every morning before T goes to work. I actually really enjoy it and look forward to that time (well, except for the getting up at 5 AM part...but at least Cupcake sleeps through the night, so it's really not so bad). I've been listening to audio sermons and messages on my MP3 player that I download from Oneplace.com. Lately I've mostly been listening to Revive Our Hearts, with Nancy Leigh DeMoss.

I've also been in an organizing mood lately. Today I worked on our bedroom closet and a small table in our bedroom that was piled high with baby clothes and accessories.

There are often Christian books I hear about that I want to read, but they aren't available from my public library. I just recently figured out that I can use the interlibrary loan service my library offers that allows me to get (for free!) almost any book in almost any library in America. What a blessing, as I certainly couldn't afford to purchase all those books! I visited the library by myself tonight (a rare occurrence!) and put a whole bunch of Christian books by Carolyn Mahaney, Nancy Leigh DeMoss, Anne Ortlund, and others on hold through the interlibrary loan service.

Hey Melissa,
I think I remember a post of yours about cloth diapering. Do you do that? If so, what do you use, and how does it work for you? I want to do it.

Wow, I'm impressed that you get up so early to go walking! Good for you!

I wish I could get the motivation to get up early and go walking or running...I have been saying I was going to do it now for about 6 months.
