I just spent the last two hours doing a little cleaning on my blog. The list of blogs that I follow was a lot longer than the list of blogs that I actually read, so I decided to make them a little more even! I also changed the list of blogs that I show on my blog. The changing of the lists was VERY interesting! It confirmed something that I have been slowly realizing over the last few months.

Food is not the center of my life right now.

It's hard to believe, but things are beginning to balance out. For years I spent an embarrassing amount of time thinking about food... mostly what I was going to eat next. Sometimes for healthy reasons, sometimes for dangerous reasons. I am very much still at a point where I need to put thought into my food, but I am happy (almost happy enough to be moved to tears) to say that I think about other things too. And even happier to say that a lot of those thoughts lean towards creative outlets.

I'm turning 30, ya know. I'm 6 months from it. I am in the midst of a career shift. The school is not a new destination... just a stop along the way. It doesn't feel permanent in any way. Not yet anyhow. It is totally possible that the Lord will keep me there while I explore other creative outlets from home, but right now, I'm not sure.

I am having trouble putting into words what I want to say here... maybe because my husband is awake now so he is talking to me about a Star Wars game while I blog. Deep Thoughts Interrupted... good name for a blog. Ha! (Love you, honey =-)

I just see shifting in my life. I have a lot more shifting to do. I need to permanently shift towards healthier food. We are eager to shift our living situation. Blending styles is going to be a whole nother ball game when we are in a house rather than an apartment. I was not fussy about the apartment, because there is so little we can do. But I am ready for a house! With walls we can paint. And space for artwork. And cooking! SO ready for a bigger kitchen. I want to cook more. I really enjoy it.

I have lots of crafting to do today, so I should get moving. We are getting a late start to our day, which is glorious =-) But the craft fair is a week from tomorrow. I have gotten a lot done, but there is a lot of work left to do. I will be so disappointed if no one comes to this thing. I may not do it again if there isn't a good turn out this year. But my hope is that the crafting will continue so that next year, I will be able to do other shows. I am really ready to more forward with a small business. Well, mentally anyway. I still need to learn how...

Hope everyone is having a wonderful holiday weekend. I REALLY needed this 4 day weekend and time with my husband. I will give you a weekend recap tomorrow night. If I can unglue my hands after all the crafting, that is.

Peace out playas!

Life shifts.. always. Even in the most seemingly stable homes. I love to hear that you are making noticeable progress in key areas. And I really wish I could come to your craft fair. And there is no WAY you're gonna be 30 in 2011. You will be eternally 25 in my mind. And that's a good thing! :)

Deep Thoughts Interrupted.. sounds like the soundtrack of my life. Like right now.. children taking a shower intrude. Love you!
