If you think I'm still lacking in inspiration, I'm not. Take a look at that hand up there. That is a teenage hand, lifted high in praise of Jesus. I took that shot at our youth meeting last week. I took more amazing shots last night. It's an amazing experience to witness (the shouting, jumping, electric youth-in-love-with-Jesus-scene), let alone capture on film. So, I've been inspired by this lately. Looking for the meaning. What is God calling me to see in doing this? How can I make them better? How can they make me better? Man, I love Jesus. He is one awesome, awesome Dude.
So, in my last post I griped and complained and let me tell you - the state of my house is no better - yet. I almost took a shot of my sink to show you this morning. Except my mom would have been ashamed, so I did not. Last night was church so we came home late and I hit the hay without cleaning up after dinner. *gasp* I KNOW, RIGHT?! Like one of my biggest pet peeves ever - because this morning? This morning was disgusting in the sink. Ick. And this evening when I get home from work will be even more disgusting. Oh well, I have to let it go. There are only so many hours in the day, Folks. I am but one parent trying to save the world. Here's hoping that Kiki doesn't lick up leftover Velveeta juice and increase her smelly pooting ability.
New subject. When I have inspiration fluttering around inside of me, I make lists. That's how my process starts and smolders. You know I love lists. Yesterday I made a new one. Two at once actually. A list of things I want to find for myself and projects to work on at home. I need to hang these lists up so that I can cross things off one at a time. That will feel good.

I have found a new blog to read and admire. You all must go there. She is an awesome fashionista named Angie - from http://www.youlookfab.com/. She has tons of tips and tricks and outfit combinations that are affordable (some are affordable, but I love looking at high fashion) and she offers advice for all body sizes and shapes. She's trendy and modern and ultra cool. I LOVE her. I've been reading her archives and there is. so. much. good. stuff. that I'm on day 4 and have only read back one year so far. Yummy stuff.
