Oh how I love getting away for a few (or more!) hours to have dinner and drinks with dear friends. After I spent yesterday doing meal prep, homeschooling, and working on various projects around the house, this was majorly precious time for me. Incidentally, between the six of us, we have 30 KIDS...and that's NOT counting our two sweet girls that we're bringing home. Wow! (We also all have blogs. How fun is that??!!)
One of the main topics of conversation last night was actually the concept of eternal punishment. Yay or nay. (Okay not that anyone feels "yay" about it but you know what I mean). Are there theological/religious topics that you wonder about, and discuss with other people while drinking a mojito? Maybe that's just me. Anyway, I won't out anybody on their views. But if you were at the Littleton CPK last night, you now probably know what each of us thinks about the whole life-after-you-die thing. And that we don't all agree. And that I can hold my pee in for unbelievable periods of time because I don't want to miss out on any of the conversation.
If you know me you probably know that I am SO unmotivated to leave my house at night. Really. Because I'm usually ready to cozy up in my pjs next to Kevin and lay down on the couch with my laptop or a good book by about four p.m. (If I've even changed out of my pjs at all. Homeschooling rocks.) BUT you can be sure that I look forward to these girls' nights like it's nobody's business!
I'm a Catholic mama to eight kids ages 9 and under, and wife to one great guy. I'm a lover of Jesus, great books, ethnic food, and thrifting. I am pro-life and pro-adoption. Loving Denver. Missing California. Most days are a whirlwind of babies and sweeping and joy in the little things. In spite of good intentions, I am rarely anywhere on time. Here you can follow my journey to just show up and be present in each and every crumb-filled moment.
