1.Three posts in one week? Now that's just cray cray. I've even dusted off the ol' Twitter account! (maggiemccrawgal, BTW.) It's nice to get back into the social media world.
2.Last night our parish had 7:00 Mass for the Feast of the Assumption. That's like the witching hour at our house with bedtime looming, so I went to Mass by myself. I was guilt-ridden as I was leaving because Joe was begging to go to church screaming "JEVUS! JEVUS!" But it was soooo nice to be able to hear a homily and just bask in the holiness of Mass!
3.I get in a strange mood when back to school time rolls around. I get all melancholic and bummed out that the fun of summer is over. The crickets don't seem as loud whenever school comes back. However, I used to always get excited for school, so it's kind of a love/hate relationship. And with the coming of school means fall is just around the corner and I LOVE LOVE LOVE fall. Hoodies, fall candles, candy corn, crock pots... I CANNOT WAIT!
4.I handed in my nursing school application this week. I'm going back and forth between "A MIRACLE CAN HAPPEN!" and "What a complete waste of time and energy." I really doubt I will be accepted because of my math score, but I thought it wouldn't hurt to try. So any prayers you can throw out there for me.. to accept God's will especially, would be fantastic.
5.I've been thinking about praying a novena regarding my nursing school application and just in general because I feel like Ryan and I are supposed to BE somewhere DOING something else rather then what we're doing, but I have no clue what that is. I was trying to think of the "best" novena for the situation.. Mary Undoer of Knots? St. Jude? St. Joseph? St. Agatha?
I'm doin' em all. Back to back, yo.
Or is that an overkill?
6.Ryan and I are finishing up season 4 of Big Bang Theory. It's such a nice break from watching The Walking Dead. That show can get pretty heavy and depressing. Thanks to Jen's suggestion we'll probably get sucked into the show Breaking Bad. We're always a little behind on our TV show watching.
7.My big brother, Jamie, won Volunteer of the Year award for the diocese of Kansas City-St. Joseph for his work in youth group. You might know him as Roman Catholic Cop. I'm so proud of him! He can be pretty holy when he isn't being a huge butt head (to me.)
I hope you all have a great weekend! Go visit Jen at Conversion Diary for more!
