Haven't Found my Groove

School started 2 weeks ago, and I still haven't found my groove. I don't know what the problem is exactly, but I just don't feel like I'm on top of things the way I want to be. I feel really scattered these days. So...I'm going to take a blogging break for a few days, maybe a week, I'm not sure. I just need to cross blogging off of my mental "to-do" list for now.

Yesterday was a long and hard and busy day. The bright spot was the package that came in the mail yesterday afternoon from NavPress. These little goodies were inside.

John wrote these two Bible studies last fall. They're the follow-up studies to Living the Questions in Matthew, Mark, Luke, and John that he wrote a couple of years ago. The next two books in the series (Phillipians & Colossians) come out later this year, or next. I'm not entirely sure. You can purchase them on Amazon, or from NavPress...if you're so inclined. I've even seen them at the Focus on the Family bookstore, and his parents said that some of his books were available at the Lifeway store in Little Rock. Cool, huh? I'm really proud of him, and I hope there is much more writing in his future.

Also in the package were these two Bible studies on marriage that he edited last year.

So...a nice surprise in the mail yesterday. It's always amazing for me to see the finished product! Congrats, honey! You did a great job.

I'll be back after my break, but for now, I'm off to play with Abbey. She's been doing crafty projects this afternoon (for school and for fun!) and now she's got Barbie-world all set up and is (impatiently) waiting on me. Adios, amigos.

Good for you for playing Barbie with Abbey...when I try to play Polly or Barbie, I discover I've forgotten how. I dress them and stuff, but can't think of anything for them to say. But it's really okay, because my girls would rather tell me what to do/say, anyway.

That's Abbey favorite part of me playing with her...telling me what to make my Barbie (or Polly) do and say. So I just oblige her and LOVE hearing her imagination shine through.

I've been absent the last couple of weeks from the blog world. I hope to get back soon. We just started homeschooling and I'm staying busy! I'll miss seeing your posts when I am on, though.

Mer, we will miss you, but I totally understand about the "not finding your groove" thing. I'm having a time myself. Enjoy your break and may you come back totally refreshed--and with your groove on!!!

It's a small, small world. I used to work at NavPress as an editor--and I've published with them too. My guess is we know some people in common other than Holly!
