Today I Lived Life First

April 22, 2007

Oops, I’m a bit later than normal writing today.  I guess that’s what happens when you spend your time living life, instead of just blogging about it.  We actually made it to church this morning, the first time since around Christmas.  It was weird because at 1:30 this morning, M and I were both completely awake.  M had been struggling with a tummy problem all evening, and we expected to be too tired and possibly sick to get up early for church.  We were both surprised when 9:00 rolled around and we each felt like we could probably make it, tired or not.

 PJ was the only one who wasn’t as happy to be leaving.  As much as he loves going “bye-bye,” he wasn’t quite as excited about it as usual because of how tired he was.  M had to wake him up for breakfast when we got up at 9:00.  (Sometimes I love that kid so much!  I mean, 9:00?!)  He was fussy on and off all morning, even in the nursery at church, surrounded by other kids and new toys.  Fortunately he made it through without driving anyone crazy and came straight home to take a nap.  He didn’t even want much lunch first–not even French fries!  The kid was tired; he slept almost four hours for his afternoon nap.  Nice!  He woke up in a great mood, too.  Nothing can upset him this afternoon.  Why can’t he be like this all the time?

Oh, and M and I got in this awesome discussion on the way home from church, spurred on by the morning’s sermon.  We talk and joke all the time, but rarely do we get into a deep discussion like that.  It was an unusual combination of analyzing literature, God, and how each relate to life.  I can’t explain it without repeating the whole discussion, with much background information.  It was really neat anyway.  M and I understand each other just a little better now, I think.

There’s so much more I could talk about today, want to talk about, but I don’t want to bore you with every detail from the day.  It’s probably a result of my pregnancy hormones and being tired; I’m feeling everything today.  Fortunately, most of the emotions are good this time.  That makes me want to tell everyone every event, moment, that struck me today, though, and that’s quite a few.  I’ll spare you. 🙂

My laptop is a few years old, bought when M and I were just dating.  M has talked about replacing it for a while now, but I’ve been putting it off.  I would love to say I’m just that attached to it, but the truth is that I’m too cheap to think of our money going to replacing a perfectly good laptop.  Sure, as it’s aged, it’s developed a few minor annoyances, but they’re nothing that awful.  Until today, when typing this very post.  You ever notice how many u’s you use in one post?  Today I did.  It’s a lot, especially when you have to pound on that u key every time you need one.  Is it weird that this sticky u key might be the thing that finally convinces me it’s time to invest in a new computer?
