Quick Takes-vol.27

Many thanks to Jen for hosting Quick Takes this week and challenging us to another "7 posts in 7 days".  It's just what I needed to get my rear in gear.  It starts Monday and you can look for exciting posts like:
Why my meat thermometer is amazing (I know you're stoked for this one!)
Birth Order
Why the secularization of America doesn't bother me
Why I eventually came to love Parks & Rec
and that eagerly anticipated part 2 to the post where I talked about how I'm like God :-)

It's been a full week.  My Creighton teaching responsibilities are really in full-swing now.  My client base is growing and I have follow-ups every week now.  I have Education Phase II coming up next month and I'm feeling a bit overwhelmed with all of the assignments I still have to complete.  Becoming a Creighton practitioner really is a lot of work and since it's not like a mainstream degree or certification that people understand it's hard.  Friends and family think it's more like a hobby, but it really is a lot of work.  If you don't mind, pray that I find ways to work steadily and not get overwhelmed at times.

So what else has been going on?  Our XC skiing experience turned out really well and we're glad we gave it a try.  I was surprised I wasn't really that sore the next day and impressed that I had the endurance I did.  I frequently feel like my endurance is the main thing that holds me back in all physical activity and I really need to work on it.

We actually celebrated Valentine's Day for the first time in years.  Don't laugh, but we went to Friendly's and got Super Melts and shared a sundae.  To me, it was perfect.  I love those Super Melts and the sundae was made with toasted marshmallow peanut butter ice cream so it really couldn't get much better.

We also had a couple new to our church group over for dinner Monday night and I spent the morning making beeswax Advent candles with girlfriends from church:


 We used the kits from Toadily Handmade Beeswax Candles and the kit to make 3 sets was perfect for us!

We have a weekend filled with church stuff.  Our group is having a bake sale to raise money to support a child in Haiti so we have that to bake for tomorrow and set up.  Then we're attending the church spaghetti supper and manning the bake sale booth on Sunday.  Aaaand it's a blood pressure weekend for the nurses so I'll have that after the 12:15 Mass.  Our life here is good and full and we love our church.
