I haven't blogged all week. I know, it's not the end of the world, but I have thoughts. Thoughts that don't necessarily garner a full post, nor does anyone really care about them, but maybe my loyal family followers of this here bloggity. Plus! I haven't hopped on the 7 Quick Take train in a looooong time! So, let's go! :)

I was really hoping to be writing and reflecting about my experience EMing at my parish's First Holy Communion! I got an email from our coordinator last week sometime asking if I would help. I was thrilled, and honored! I remember when I taught second grade CCD, and what a joyous day it was watching my little kids receive Jesus in the Eucharist for the first time. And then to be able to serve as an EM... so awesome. Obviously I wouldn't be giving Jesus to the kiddos (that's the preists' honor!), but just to be there in the the EM role. So great.
But, alas! I get there and there is no need for me. :( To say I was bummed is an understatement. I was very disappointed! There was some sort of miscommunication and they didn't end up needing extra help. Sad face... for sure. So, another day I will reflect on the joys of EMing.

Well, I didn't mean to start out with such a downer!
I RECEIVED SOMETHING OTHER THAN GOD IN THE MAIL YESTERDAY!
I think the caps are completely necessary. Don't you?
It is really good so far! I wish I didn't have other things to do (or that my butt didn't get numb after a while) so that I could just read and read and read.
I am just so excited for you, Jen!

Speaking of #SOTG... I tweeted to Mrs. Fulwiler, herself:
... but I mean??? RIGHT? How awesome would that be??
My brain doesn't actually work that way... so I have absolutely NO idea how one would even go about doing that. But, there has GOT to be a way. Have any ideas???

Let me just tell you. The rain that we are currently having is seriously a welcomed JOY.
Summer has arrived down here in SWFL... and it's just too dang early!
It's seriously just gross.
My hair does weird flippy things. I feel like I am walking through walls of moisture. And now, my power bill will be creeping up as I have to keep the AC on basically all of the time.
I know... whoooooaaa is me. And who am to really complain, as I am not really a Floridian. But, here I complain anyway. Martha, does a great (and hilarious) job of explaining it here. :)

Do you run? Exercise? Run around with kids? Or just get tired of your hair falling in your face?
I did, too.
That's why I love my new BolderBand headband. (ha, this sounds like a horrible infomercial)
Um, but it's true! They stay in place! They are comfy! And they are adorable!!
So, now you know. Enjoy!
