In 2011, I want to work on my family. Maybe have a baby. Maybe just solidify the one I already have. Deepen bonds. Be aware. Be appreciative. I want to climb back into the driver’s seat of my life, and rather than just being a passenger, pilot this vessel with the guidance of God in the ways that will change my little piece of the world for the better

lalalindsay: My NYE outfit? Yoga pants. Not a sequin in sight. I can’t think of a better way to spend the evening. (I’m just proud that I recently put on a proper pair of drawers.) I’ve been to the sparkly, short skirt, champagne toasting rodeo. That’s great for most. I’m over it. Mostly because I’m old, you… Lindsay, did you get PDub’s cookbook for Christmas?! Because I wanted...

When I say I'm a Christian,
minh-minh: I am not shouting I am saved. I am whispering I get lost. That is why I choose this way. I do not speak of this with pride. I am confessing that I stumble and need someone to be my guide. I am not trying to be strong. I am professing that I am weak and pray for strength to carry on. I am not claiming to be perfect. My flaws are too visible but God believes I am worth it. When I...

world-shaker: teachingtoday: What schools would be like if teachers only worked with what was provided and refused to bring in or purchase anything for their classrooms and lessons… Anyone care to weigh in? I would estimate that I spend between $1000.00 and $2000.00 a year on school related expenses per year (things that could reasonably come from a budget).
One rehearsal down, one to go, plus a concert. Me + My children’s choir + An ORCHESTRA! + Lots of instructions to follow = 45 minutes of sleep last night and a nervous stomach. Get it together, girl.
What would it take?
…to get me back there. To that I LOVE LIFE place that I lived for 22 years. Because I’m GOING to get back there. I’m just not sure how. More frequent friend visits. Check. Taking care of myself physically. Checking. Surrounding myself with positivity/humor. Thanks tumblr. A chance to do what I know I am capable of… Artistic Freedom in some form.
“I was flipping through your old pictures on facebook. You looked so alive back then. Before me. Do I make you unhappy?” This, from the best thing in my life. My husband. Who brings me tea and cough drops when I’m sick. Who rubs my feet and cuddles me without being asked. Who is smart, and kind, and funny, but not too funny - more real. Who is honest - maybe to a fault. ...

flyingoffthehandle: I am coming to realize that I completely took the parking garage at my apartment building last year for granted. I know I bitched about it a lot (I was given the STUPIDEST space ever). The one thing I hate most is getting into a cold car. You can’t cuddle under a blanket. You have to shiver and be… I’m not one to be all into gender roles, but one I do subscribe...

ohheyychrissy: I know I need a break when I start referring to Jersey as “home.” Yes, it’s where I grew up, yes, it’s where my family lives, but I haven’t lived there full time in 6 years. DC is where my job, my apartment, my friends, my life is, and that feels like “home” to me. But whenever I need a break I… That is SO spot on…. I had a weekend full of home time two weeks ago...
