Where Dani writes about… just about everything!
Yeah, I just wanted to throw a picture of Jason up here. This one fits my personal blog pretty well on the grounds that he seems to have picked up a lot of my mannerisms and silliness — from the fist-pumps that we do when we get really excited, which seems almost hereditary, all the way over to this pose….
For the last several months, I’ve been thinking about how I’d like to remodel my bathroom. Not only has it been the same lavender color for going on two and a half years, but the medicine cabinet and sink that are currently in there have been in there since we moved into this house. As much as I’m happy to actually have a bathroom of my own, the knowledge that I’m eventually going to have to share it with my sons as they grow older has also begun to hit me. In about a year, my oldest son is going to begin going to the bathroom in there once he’s tall enough to get on and off the toilet without issue. Ideally, I would like to have the bathroom completely renovated before then for that reason.
While my newborn son takes naps throughout the day, I’ve been looking around on the Internet for new sinks. Some of the Stainless Steel Kitchen Sinks over at ShopSinksAndFaucets.Com have caught my eye, and I’m thinking about installing one in my bathroom! I’ve always liked stainless steel products because I think how they reflect light is nice, and I’ve always been a big fan of the color silver. Having one of these in my bathroom would also be nice because it would accentuate the earthy brown and green tones that I’d like to paint the walls. Since Shop Sinks and Faucets is Better Business Bureau accredited, I feel confident about making my upcoming purchase from them.
The fact that shipping is also free if you spend more than $100 and they offer same-day shipping also makes me happy. That means I can save money without having to wait a long time for my Stainless Steel Kitchen Sink to arrive!
I’m going to drop all three hundred EntreCards for both of my blogs on Monday, because I haven’t had the chance to do that for a few days. Most of Saturday was spent over at Matt’s house letting him spend time with his son, which went a lot better than I’d originally thought because it seemed like he’d taken a lot of what I’d said in previous conversations to heart. I’m also going to be spending some time over there as well, although I’m going to bring my laptop so as not to entirely rue the day. As seems to be the norm on most Sundays, I wind up going to church with them simply because I am physically there. As it’s said, you can bring a horse to water but you can’t make it drink.
Matt’s mother can bring me to church and talk about religion with me until she turns blue in the face. However, I’m never going to have that passion that she’s instilled into her sons about God and church. No amount of taking me to church is magically going to make this happen, and there is no prerequisite amount of times that I have to attend in order for me to “suddenly get it”. You’re not preaching to the choir when you bring me to your church functions, either. As nice as a lot of your fellow church-goers are, I’m doing this for two reasons — to show support for my boyfriend’s faith and religion, and because it almost seems like I have to. Right now would not exactly be the best time to start something over our almost irreconcilable differences in faith, you know?
Going to church with Matt’s family usually ends up in me feeling smothered, like I’m the only one who just doesn’t get it and sometimes even gives me something to write about in my blogs. However, it has yet to have the desired effect that I’m sure Matt’s mother is waiting with baited breath for it to have.
