Blabbing Blogger Seeks Basketball Bible

When we moved back to Kansas I decided not to talk about my blog to the new people I was meeting. I did this because I wasn’t sure if it was healthy to unleash so much April on people all at once.

It takes me a bit to warm up in new environments and therefore I tend to be more reserved and quiet and timid and basically paralyzed until I’m comfortable. I think people would say, “She’s just a tiny waif of a thing. I can barely hear her when she speaks.” Yes, that’s exactly how people would describe me. They would also comment on my long fluttery eyelashes, rosebud lips and delicate gait. Because, really, I’m just a sweet, quiet introvert that has been buried inside the body of a gigantic, babbling blond that laughs louder than a hyena being tickled by a baboon!

Unfortunately that gigantic babbling blond eventually gets the best of the tiny waif and one day in a moment of coffee induced spasmodic tongue-flapping I told a new friend, “Oh, I have a blog! And it’s so wonderful. You should read it. EVERYDAY FOR THE REST OF YOUR LIFE!”

Since I hang out with her in larger circles of coffee induced spasmodic tongue-flapping women the topic of my blog has been mentioned a time or two.

So, I wasn’t too surprised when I got a little note from my Pastor’s wife that she heard I had a blog and could I please tell her how to find it.

This is the email I wrote her. Because why in God’s Holy NAME would I just say, “Sure, thanks for asking.”

Hey K,
I’m home missing bible study because I have four children and they’ve stapled me to the floor of my kitchen and poured oatmeal in my hair. Also, I can’t seem to find the front door, I think I left it behind a couple loads of laundry. AND if I have to take my little boys to one more basketball game this week they might think that’s where we live.

Translation: We’ve been gone a lot, I have company coming tonight, my house is a disaster, I’m still in my pj’s.

Anyway, here’s my blog address, please know it’s my creative/crazy outlet and by no means reflects the serious, mature adult that I am everyday.

Have a great weekend and if you want to get in touch with me call any of the local basketball gyms within a 100 mile radius.

I really wanted to sign it with a meaningful Bible verse, but I couldn’t find one that had any reference to basketball or blogging. What’s with that?
