Day 16.

It's 6:42pm, and I haven't blogged yet today.  Normally, I wouldn't care, as I'm a firm believer in don't write just for the sake of posting.  But I've challenged myself to write every day in October, and I will NOT fail today.

Today was a day when I really just didn't feel like I had anything to write about.  Well, that's not entirely true.  I have plenty to write about but, I'm just not ready to yet.  Other ideas I had required some planning and pictures I hadn't taken.  So, I was kind of stuck.  I was also busy at work, so I didn't have a lot of time to sit down and stare at a blank screen and wait for inspiration to come.  But the last 24 hours have been a little eventful for me.

I reconciled with a friend that I had been frustrated with.

I had my favorite taco salad for lunch.

I got a new adoption client and am helping her adopt a girl from Bangladesh.  
(My first international adoption case!)

I moved from anger to sad in the stages of grief and had a meltdown on my way home from Bible study last night.

I came home to a kitchen that had been thoroughly cleaned and dishes washed thanks to my awesome husband.

The words that God gave me to encourage someone else ended up speaking to me.

I read a lot of case law and treatises on search and seizure for a motion I need to file soon.

And we had cake today at work for Boss' Day!  (Lucky for everyone that I wasn't in charge of the party because I didn't know that it was Boss' Day until the cake arrived...)

It's been a good 24 hours.  I'm growing and I'm learning about myself.  And that's why I'm blogging every day this month.


  1. I LOVE coming home to a clean house!! Or flowers... Or dinner... ;-)

    Delicious taco salads are THE BEST.

  2. great post and way to keep your challenge going!

  3. Yay for an adoption case! I was an adoption social worker for 5 years and LOVED it so much. I miss it a lot and hope to expand my private practice to do more adoption counseling in the future. And I can't seem to motivate/find time to blog these last couple of days. Blame it on baseball. I've been busy watching games and staying up too late.

  4. Wow, lots of ups and downs and craziness!!! But hey...cake makes everything good ;)
