A Monday Night List

print via
-It's good to be home.  Our trip was full of family and friends and sad and happy moments and lots to post about.  I'm in the middle of all that comes with post-trip territory (aka laundry and messes), so a list will have to do to start the week. 

-Aside from the post-trip digging out, I'm also busy with preparations for a big birthday party tomorrow night.  The women's organization I belong to at church is turning 169.  It's the oldest and largest women's organization in the world, and it's a guiding force in my life.  I'm excited to celebrate.  Tomorrow will be full of details.  And baking. 

-I'm not much of a news watcher, but the magnitude of what is happening in Japan is heart-breaking.  I've watched footage and seen pictures and still feel like it's beyond comprehension.  I've had three immediate reactions: 1. a proper dose of perspective on my own petty problems, 2. a desire to make sure my own little family is prepared for whatever might come our way, and 3. a need to give.  Maybe you're thinking about the same things.

Be back soon with more to share.  Hope your week is off to a great start.
