I’m Not Okay

Well, I’m okay. I’m just not okaaaayy-okay. You know, kinda like chocolate chip cookies that have nuts in them. I like them, I just don’t liiiike them-like them. They are fine and will do if that’s all there is, but if I had my way they would be different… Or maybe not like that at […]

…And One Door Opens. Yep, The Big Reveal.

Remember my last post about one door closing while another one opens? This one here. Well, I’m ready for the big reveal: There is so much turmoil, for many of us, surrounding our figuring out what “God’s plan” for our lives entails. I have, on many occasions, called out to God and begged, “Just reveal […]

One Door Closes…

I saw a license plate holder today that said, “I make plans… and God laughs.” Well, God must have been doubled over belly laughing about what I thought His plans were. I was so sure! I was so, so wrong. Yep. God has big, big plans for the Zimfam. -Cue the door closing. All the […]

Only the Steeple Remains-Last REM Story, I Promise

As I mentioned in my last post, REM was my Elvis. Like most fanatical Elvis fans, who have to hold vigil at Graceland certain times of the year, my roommate and I decided we must do the same-but for REM. We decided a pilgrimage to Athens, Georgia over spring break 1990, was in order. We […]

He Had Me At Odious-An REM Story

When I was in college I loved the band REM. I’m not talking about mere like-I LOVED them, no, I LOVE-LOVED them. REM was my Elvis. I thought the lead singer Michael Stipe was brilliant, nay, a genius! He wrote songs like So. Central Rain and Radio Free Europe that were, in my opinion, the […]

The Cricket House

When I was in the 5th grade we moved back to Riverside from a two year stint in Santa Maria, CA. My parents rented a house for 6 months, or so, before they bought. I not so lovingly refer to that house as The Cricket House. I was 10 at the time-and now I’m not-so […]

Everything’s Amazing and I’m Just Not Happy

I have an iPhone. Who doesn’t, right? It is AMAZING. So much better than the free Samsung (with 2 yr commitment, of course) phone that I used to use. Oh sure, the Samsung worked great. It was a phone. I made calls with it. The iPhone, of course does so much more-internet, texting, pictures and […]

P90X-tremely Painful

Even my finger tips hurt. Were only on day 5. Yoga was the worst! I am down 3 pounds. No, there will not be any before and after photos posted. You’re welcome.

Two Truths and a Lie

This past weekend was the Sandals Marriage Retreat. It is an event that I look forward to each year.  We have workshops on marriage, dinner and dancing with our church friends and get to sleep sans a 5 year old sneaking into to our bed. Heaven. At our dinner table this weekend, we played Two […]
