I feel super anxious - like I'm waiting for something...but I don't know what. I fully believe that God can break into our everyday lives with excitement at any moment, but there's nothing I really *should* be expecting RIGHT now.

In trying to distract myself from being...um, distracted:

I am obsessing over new nail polish I saw Sunday: Sally Hansen Color Quick Chrome Pens. I am admittedly a nail polish junkie. If it has glitter or sparkle, it's mine. I'm usually an OPI girl, (I just got Merry Midnight for Christmas & *LOVE* it: purple base/blue glitter/holographic red flakies - see here) but I can't stop thinking about these chrome pens. I had a Carolina blue chrome polish that was my toe signature years ago, and I loved the chrome look. I'm dreaming about how cool this new chrome silver would look on my fingers...

I also want a Brett Favre/Peyton Manning Superbowl. They are my two favorite players in the NFL not on the Redskins. I love the city of New Orleans - one of my most favorite places in America - but I'd still rather a Brett/Peyton showdown. I love them.

Annelise is almost 100% better. She just has this dry cough that won't disappear. One more pharmaceutical recommendation: Hyland's Cough Syrup with 100% Natural Honey 4 Kids Yep, from the same people that make the miracle teething tablets. I was so frustrated hearing from doctors that cough medicines don't really do anything and they're not worth even giving to your kids, so again - I sound like a health nut, and I'm really NOT! - I looked for something else. This stuff works, and I don't feel like I'm drugging up my kids. I'm pretty sure I will be turning to Hyland's in the first place from now on. (You can get Hyland's products for sure at CVS & Whole Foods, but Walmart is the cheapest.)

Hmmm...was noch? Ich habe ein paar deutsche Filme gesehen: Der Baader Meinhof Komplex, Im Juli, Der Krieger und die Kaiserin, Rosenstraße, und Anonyma: Eine Frau in Berlin - ganz traurig. Ich warte auf Netflix freigegeben zu werden diese: Flammen & Citronen, Keinohrhasen, Krabat, Das weiße Band, und Was Tun, Wenn's Brennt? Ich möchte immer mehr Empfehlungen!

(Not to be obnoxious - that last paragraph was a list of German movies I've seen recently and another list of ones I'm waiting for Netflix to release.)

Turning now to TiVo for further distraction...


  1. distraction can be a blessing and a curse. i hope your anticipation for the GREAT things God is going to do this year only strengthens and my prayer is for you to see him move in a way to move you south :-) i know that is the desire of your heart! that is my prayer for you all. keep looking upward and he will provide!

  2. You are cracking me up about the nail polish! Somewhere along my pregnancy I stopped getting pedi's bc I figured I couldn't see my toes so they can't be that bad. Then right before baby girl was born I had them done in fear of baby seeing my ugly toes as her first sight into the world. haha. Yet, I still am not good at getting them done and way too lazy to do it myself.

    And ditto what "Clay and Amy" said!
