my kankles are truly that bad. could it be the sodium from the chicken parm? no way. that's silly.
(what? my mirror is not dirty)
anyway, i've prayed for the rapture to come a lot lately...selfishly maybe. but is sounds super spiritual. it was more of a get me out of this mess/stress/craziness prayer.
or an i'm so sinful and all my sin is coming out to play when things don't go my way, so suck me up into heaven!
but alas. i'm still here. on the earth. in the chaos. i would love to take you on a roller coaster of crazy that has been this week but the Lord has sparred you. it involves a crazy house closing that didn't go as planned(i thought i might deliver this child from sheer stress), trying to pack while giant(6 weeks till the babe comes!) and moving at a slug's pace, and a strong desire for gin and juice every night. plus, why do we need all these things? gah. i'm such a hoarder.
i am comforted by the thought of eternity as we live in seasons like this. i know that we came out of a season of rest and that we were going into a season of difficult work, but it's been hard to live in the difficult...conceptually, i was fine with the thought. rolling around in that reality, not so much. it's such a mirror for where i run when i am uncomfortable. and what i so valued before. i know that the circumstances were permitted by God so that i would know him more and that he would be glorified. this is my only comfort.
and those salted caramels from costco. praise him.
it's getting a little too deep so let's talk about my baby shower that my frands threw me the other week. watercolor themed...and omg. so cute. they made me feel incredible special.

later gators. back to packing.
