Mixed batch

I wasn't sure I was even going to post today. I've been trying to post at least once a day. Today has been to blah for me. Even worse than the normal Monday blahs. Zachariah has been into everything today. And he has been deliberately disobeying me...very frustrating. And he hasn't been wanting to take naps...grr. And I've had this awful headache for the second day in a row, but it finally went away after some Tylenol and chocolate. So here are the rest of the things I wanted to tell you about:

1. I have other things I want to blog about, but I will save them for later since I don't feel up to it today.

2. Last night we went to a meeting at church. It's supposed to help get people hooked up with a small group. We've been involved in several small groups since we've been at the church, but it's been about 3 years (or more) now since we have. I've been itching to get back into that again. I miss having a "community" of support around me. We need it. It was Matt's idea (he's why we didn't do it earlier), so I was thrilled about that.

3. I'm not sure what I think about the small group that we've chosen for now. There are two younger couples (one married for a year, the other engaged to be married next summer), and two older couples (the leaders who are a little older than my parents and another who might be old enough to be my grandparents age- though I don't know for sure). The two younger couples get along very well and do things outside of the group together. I'm guessing we're just a few years older than then, and we're the only ones with a young child. I hope that we fit in. I have some hesitations about it, but only time will tell. We'll go to the first meeting next Sunday night.

4. Matt has committed to going to Mali, Africa next year. They're looking at the first part of November. Now we need to raise at least $3,000 before then.

5. His leaving may alter plans I had in mind about trying for another baby. I haven't talked to him about this yet, but I know I need to. I made these plans after we discussed it back in the spring. I think he's conveniently forgotten the conversation.

6. For Sara and Devan - Google reader is really easy to do. Go to their page and sign up for it. Then you "add subscription" for blogs you follow. For instance put in: Then whenever I update my blog, the reader will find it and post it right on there for you to see. It's way easier than compulsively checking people's blogs all the time for updates...not that I ever did that.

7. Kelsey - I watched the movie "Disturbia". It was pretty good. Pretty much like I thought it was going to be. I don't like horror or scary movies, but this was just a "suspense" movie.

That's all for now folks. I can't think anymore at the moment, so I will just post this. I will get some better posts out soon.

How awesome that your hubby is going on a mission trip to Africa...I've always wanted to do something like that. Sorry to hear it will interfere with your baby plans, though. Funny how some men "conveniently forget" the all-important family planning conversations.

And I wanted to say thanks for the recommendation for Old Navy's baby boy clothes. My little guy finally has some fall/winter clothes.

Wow, Mali! My father in law is going on that trip, too. Although I know it is completely unrealistic for me to go at this point in my life, I am a little jealous. I can't wait to hear about it!

Jana- Yes, forget is about how it's gone. I don't think he has thought about age gaps and everything like I have. He just doesn't get it. Also, I'm so glad that you found some good clothes for Liam. Old Navy is my favorite for boys clothes, I think. At least they seem to have the best selection, because we know the boys sections are always way smaller than the girls.

DH- Yes, he did tell me that Greg is signed up too. I'm sure he'll have fun with the group that is going. I feel the same as you...I'm a little jealous. My grandma asked me if I wanted to go. My answer: yes, some day, but I wouldn't feel comfortable going now. My son is too young for both his parents to be that for away for that long. But maybe in the future I'll be able to do those trips.

I am with you about horror versus suspense -- suspense good, horror unnecessary, at least for me. The trouble is it can be hard to tell which a movie is -- glad to know Disturbia is just suspense, it looked interesting.
