Random Ramblings

1. I have been a bad blogger lately. And an even worse picture taker, I literally have not taken a picture of anything since we got back from vacation. Sorry Dad – this post is ALL words!

2. Tomorrow Will goes to “Playcation” at church. It is all day Tuesday, Wednesday and Thursday and I am teaching the 2 year old class. I am a little nervous about him going – silly, I know! I hope he behaves, does ok without a nap and that I packed him enough food for lunch. The only lunch box we own is Vera Bradley and pink – I hope his friends don’t make fun of him. :)

3. For reasons unknown, my computer has decided to not “pull up” certain websites. For instance, I can’t log on to our online banking. But I also can’t log on to my Netvibes account and this is where I store all the blogs that I like to read. But this has been a blessing in disguise. I found that the more time I spent reading blogs the more un-content I was in my own life. It’s easy to constantly compare yourselves to everyone else on the internet! So, even when I get the capability to look at Netvibes again I am going to drastically scale down and only read blogs of people I know (and a select few that are inspiring to me).

4. I started a new Bible study with some girls in my Sunday school class last Tuesday night. We are striving to really hold each other accountable in our spiritual walk. One way, of course, is asking what we have learned each week through our Bible reading. Well, I have really failed this week. If they ask I may have to lie and make something up. Just kidding :) Maybe I’ll learn something at Playcation tomorrow!

    I don’t think I would lie about reading my Bible! I am thrilled that you have friends who encourage you in your walk.

    Ditto on the blog reading point. I’m doing the same. I wish I could join you girls, but I don’t think at this point in my life our family schedule will allow. :( I’m glad we can still do “summer camp” though!

    It seems you are being a little “hard” on yourself today:-)

    1. It’s ok if you don’t take pictures and blog everyday. I’m sure what you are doing instead includes being a good mommy to Will.

    continued… (I messed up!)

    2. Will holds his own no matter where he is (because he has a good Mommy)….and as far as carrying the Vera Bradley lunchbox.. he is comfortable in his masculinity :-)

    3. Don’t ever compare yourself to anybody (there is only one you) and besides, most people do not post about parts of their life that are not successful.

    4. Don’t feel like you haven’t learned anything through your reading this week. You have learned that you might do it differently next week and it is wonderful that you have your Bible study group to encourage you!

    So, there you go, Ms Perfectonist…I think you are great!

    Diane – I’m sorry that you can’t join us too! But just think you’ll have an empty nest so early in life that you can do a bajillion Bible studies then :)

    Pam – thanks for the encouraging words! And Will did not care one bit that his lunch box was pink. He carried it in proudly because it held a yummy lunch (which he ate every bite of)!

    I don’t see how you manage all you do now keeping all of us informed on the little “DIXON” family. You’re a wonderful Mommy and Will shows that by his actions both with you and out of your sight. As for reaching the place where we feel we are at the point others view as all good and under control: It never happens I’m sorry to tell you! We are a “work in progress” as the saying goes. You and Bill are doing a good job!!!! Just pray and keep going!
