a new quote, more excuses, and a question

“You gain strength, courage, and confidence by every experience in which you really stop to look fear in the face…You must do the thing you think you cannot do.” — Eleanor Roosevelt

I just love this new quote I came across and wanted everyone to see it (it's also on my sidebar list).  Now, as far as new posting.  Here's the deal: it seems like almost every time I get enough 'on-top' of things around here that I don't feel too guilty spending a lot of time updating the blog, something happens that throws things out of wack again-- someone(s) get sick, we go on a trip, we have company, etc.  So, this morning I should be doing all the last minue things I ran out of time for last night for our weekend getaway to Provo, but instead I am giving you all some more excuses.  My goal for October is 5 posts (real ones where you can actually read about what we've been up to these days).

One more thing... people keep talking about Pinterest on my facebook page.  I looked into it briefly, and what I saw seemed to be a place to create a never-ending collection of wishes and wants, a huge time-sucker with no benefit.  (I totally admit Blogger and Facebook can also be huge time-suckers, but they have the redeeming quality of helping people stay connected).  HOWEVER, people I know and trust really seem to love Pinterest.  So, I am still curious-- do any of you use Pinterest?  Why?  What do you use it for?  How has it been helpful for you?

And now, I really must finish packing!

New posts

I have finally added a couple new posts!  Of course they're outdated, but better than nothing!
