Operation Take my Life Back

Today was supposed to mark a huge milestone for me in Operation Take my Life Back

Today is the first day of fall bible study at my church.  We are going to be studying James along with Beth Moore.  I'm so looking forward to a. being back with Beth... she is one of my very favorite teachers, and b. being back in a regular women's bible study.  It has been a couple of years because for a couple of years my mornings have been dedicated to making calendars.

Except this morning my sweet baby girl decided to wake up at 6:30am.  She usually wakes up closer to 8.  It was already going to be a challenge to get her through to 11 o'clock {when bible study ends} without a nap. 

She was super cranky.

I tried to put her down for a nap.  But then she vomited all over me.  I mean a lot.

So she got a long bath and then finally fell asleep.  At 10:30am. 

So instead of being at bible study this morning I am still in my pajamas, with dye in my hair, writing this blog.

But I'm okay with that.  Because you know what?  This morning turned out to be a milestone in Operation Take my Life Back after all.  Because I got to sit in my pajamas and rock my baby girl that is not feeling well until she finally fell asleep.  And I didn't have to worry about all the work that was waiting for me or the packages that needed to get out. {Oh though there is still work to be done and packages to be sent, but a weight has been lifted.}  Operation Take my Life Back... in full effect.


  1. I love this, sweet friend! Not the fact that poor P is sick, but that you are able to be there for and with her! YAY! ;)

  2. You were definitely missed! I look forward to seeing you next Thursday!! Jen L.

  3. I completely understand your call to be focused on your family and home.

    I do want to tell you that I absolutely LOVE my wall calendar that I got from you last year - I've had so. many. comments. on it. I don't tell you that to induce anything other than to affirmation that you are great at what you do professionally. Maybe when God lines it all back up, you'll be back. Maybe not. But for now, I'm glad you are getting your life back - in the way it's intended to be for you, for this season.

    May God bless you and keep you...
