Cultural Confusion and the End of the World
There was a major confluence of strange cultural themes in Two's Chick-fil-A dinner two nights ago. What on earth am I talking about? His Kid's Meal bag had the words "Bad Wolf" printed on the bottom.
Seriously, it's like Doctor Who is really real. I was completely creeped out, and now that I know the universe is ending soon, my anti-wrinkle cream has completely stopped working. Before you know it, I'll look just like this:
I'm 43, and yes, that is a good age. Attorney, mom and wife: 3 full-time jobs, which makes me jack of all trades, master of none. I like it. Two boys, 13 and 10, otherwise known here as One and Two, just to keep things simple. Husband? He is the inspiration for the title of this blog. He works 14 hour days, to which I can only say: I'm incredibly grateful he doesn't work weekends.
I love: my boys, my God, this city, good food, good books, my church, and dogs (unless they're really, really small).
I hate: fear, cold weather, grey skies, reality TV, shoes that pinch, and Daylight Savings Time.

“Time is a treasure that melts away. It escapes us, slipping through our fingers like water through the mountain rocks. Tomorrow will soon be another yesterday. Our lives are so very short. Yesterday has gone and today is passing by. But what a great deal can be done for the love of God in this short space of time!”
--- Josemaria Escriva
"Do all in your power not to fall, for strong athletes should not fall. But if you do fall, get up again at once and continue the contest. Even if you fall a thousand times ... rise up again each time, and keep on doing this until the day of your death. For it is written, "If a righteous man falls seven times' - that is repeatedly throughout his life - seven times 'shall he rise again.'"
