Do You Know What Tomorrow Is?

(UPDATE: Blockquotes fixed. Some of Joel’s words looked like they were my own comments. Sorry, Joel!) Joel has a phenominal post at On the Other Foot about Reformation Day. Best summary of it I’ve seen, as well as a superb evaluation of how Catholics should view the anniversary of Martin Luther officially splitting from the…

Carving a Pumpkin Tonight?

Note: After the previous post on Pullman’s The Golden Compass, this might strike some as strange. Please do a search of Catholic blogs explaining Halloween and how it’s not evil or sinful to dress up in costumes and get candy. (I might have even done something about it here or at the Soccer Mom site.)…

Shop Victoriously! (24 Hours Left)

I kind of like eBay’s new ad campaign (“Shop Victoriously!”), but nothing beats this ad, which I saw more than a year ago. It actually makes me cry. Okay, so that’s not that hard, but if this doesn’t at least give you a nice, warm, fuzzy feeling inside I don’t know what’s wrong with you.…

What a Pain in the Neck!

I first want to thank everyone who sent up a prayer for me last week. I was in pretty bad shape on Friday, and the doctor must have felt really badly for me because he got the massage therapist to give me a free 15 minute rub-down before I left the office. It’s strange because…

Last Minute Deals on eBay!

I put some listings up before the evil neck injury (update on that later – but thanks for the prayers! I’m feeling MUCH better!). Time is nearly up on them, so… You can see all of my eBay sales, if you’d like. Thanks for looking!

Day Three

I woke up two days ago with a neck cramp, and I thought nothing of it. I just couldn’t comfortably turn my head one direction. I decided that I’d offer up any pain I had for the souls of my grandparents. But as the day went on, it became worse and worse. I took some…

Update from Texas!!

I just got this update from my family in Texas. My Nana is visiting there right now, and I had a chance to speak to Nana and my Aunt Uncle (maybe that’s what I’ll call her!) on Nana’s birthday (October 18). Aunt Uncle sounded very good, though she said she is rather tired a lot…

Hogwarts’ Controversy (Adults Only, Please)

Okay, I have now been reading the hubub for a couple of days about Dumbledore. (See Flying Stars for some excellent discussion that is remaining blessedly short, as well as Catholic and Enjoying It! for some more balanced commentary.) When I first heard/read about it, I thought, “Ahh, okay. I thought so.” Yes, something made…

Watching Shows with Younger Siblings

Big Girl and Little Girl are watching a show I recorded off EWTN called “We Are Catholic.” It’s Italian, I think, and very, very elementary. Big Girl only recentely stopped liking it because the sound isn’t quite synched with the video, due to the dubbing. But Little Girl still likes it, and about halfway through…
