Sometimes I have so many things I want to write about that don’t fit under any normal post. Now is one of those times. And so I present to you 8 things that have been occupying my brain space lately:

Jonathan and I are training for this half marathon. I had the bright idea that we should run it while pushing our kids, so he’s pushing our boys while I push Anna Grace. Because of the rain we’ve had over the past couple weeks, our training has been pretty spotty and I don’t know if we’ll make it. Okay, fine. I don’t know if I’ll make it. I’ve run 3 half marathons before, but I’ve never run a half while pushing a jogging stroller. It’s…hard.

I don’t really dust. Apparently you guys get me on this one.

I just got legit business cards made. It took me way, waaaay too long to get this done because I wanted square cards. So I designed square cards. But then I had issues getting them into the right format to print. So I went with boring rectangular cards. Boring, boring, boring. But whatevs. After all my complaining about them being boring, I actually like them. Here it is, front & back:
The reason I got biz cards is because…

I’m headed to a conference this weekend. Wahoo! It’s geared towards Christian writers/bloggers and I am going with a desire to learn all I can from sessions, workshops, and interactions. With an intention like that, I think I’m setting off on a pretty great foot. I mean, even if things aren’t what I expect, I can still learn from them, right? And while we’re on the topic of intentions…
That’s it. 8 things that have been on my mind lately. And you? How’s your fall 2015 shaping up?
