Moving to Tumblr.

The time has come because I no longer have the time.

I'm not shutting this site down, but I won't post here regularly anymore - mostly because I fail miserably to post regularly to begin with. I also find blogspot a bit... restricting.

From this day forth, I shall be collecting snapshots of life and thought and dream here on tumblr:

It will be less on everyday life and more on the things of life. You can still see pictures of Jack, if that's why you visit, and you can still get a snapshot of our life from time to time. But I need a place to collect, for lack of a better word.

I hope it inspires you in some way; that's what I'm hoping it will do for me.

It's amazing how a good haircut can make everything seem brighter.

Ok, I don't really mean that - I'm not quite sure why the haircut I got yesterday has lifted my spirits. It's a really good haircut - I think so, anyways. Plus it was free, and free is always a nice word. But I think the more significant part of the evening was seeing Tim's aunt and uncle (who we adore) and the fact that we could hang out sans baby as well as hear about a possible job opportunity at a restaurant near where they live. We even discussed the possibility of moving out their way if Tim actually ended up getting a job there. Of course, it's all here say at the moment. But when you're job hunting, and desperately job hunting at that, any sort of lead on a source of income is a flicker hope; a light at the end of one very dark tunnel to give you the energy to keep going.

And for whatever reason, I woke up this morning feeling more optimistic about things than I have in weeks. I feel as though we're close, that something is about to break through and relieve a bit of the pressure that's been building up.

Maybe it was the haircut and the fact that I have my beloved bangs back that made my outlook rosier.

But I suspect it was sensing God making a way where there is no way. As He's been doing all along.

"Behold, I will do something new,
Now it will spring forth:
Will you not be aware of it?
I will even make a roadway in the wilderness
Rivers in the desert"
Isaiah 43:19

(note: I try not to take verses out of context and apply them to my situation to feel better. However, while I believe this verse is speaking into the coming of Christ, the idea of God carving a path before us is universal)

It's tough being a baby...

I think I update the design of this blog more than I update the blog itself.
Sorry folks - to the few of you that faithfully read this anyways!

Tonight shall be no different in my lack of real information - Jack is getting multiple teeth, he has a cold, is most likely constipated, and it all came to a head tonight while we were having dinner with a couple who we're just getting to know. I think I said, "He's not normally like this" about five times. We almost left in the middle of dinner. It was that bad.

Poor guy. Aside from Tylenol and any sort of laxative (homeopathic or otherwise) there's not much we can do for him :( Listening to your child cry in agony from physical discomfort and knowing there's nothing you can do to help has got to be one of the worst feelings ever.

I can only imagine what its like to be in Jack's tiny little body at the moment, and I'd be crying to if I were him.
