Quick Life Ramblings...and possibly a come-back!

Like my title?

So school is good for me...who would have thought? It's distracting in the very least...

Wanna know what I did today? Of course you do! Because you've heard so little from me as of late, anything would be great, right?

Wait til you hear what I did.

I got to poke around inside a human body. Yup.

No. Not figuritively.

Like a live real body.
I got to see these muscles today:

In real life. Guys, it was pretty cool.
I mean...gross.. but cool.
I guess that's why they call it gross anatomy.

Want to know another random fact of my day? Or I guess it's really a random life fact.
I am seriously addicted to Gilmore Girls.

Like. Not just a little addicted.
Like... I own all seven seasons and could probably beat most people at random trivia questions.
I speak Gilmore. Fluently.

I had forgotten how much I really loved it until recently. I started to DVR some episodes just to have as background for when I craft and can't really concentrate on the TV but just want some noise.
Do ya'll do that?
I can't be the only one...

It's funny how in-sync it can be with my life.
In a crazy, sarcastic, scripted kind of way.

One of the main characters was talking about her husband just having a heart attack and not being able to continue taking care of some of the household things for a little while.
"It's like a canoe. Life"

Profound if you listen carefully to what she tries to explain. :)

She says she feels as though (now, remember she's had a couple cocktails guys) she's been in a canoe with her husband through life and both of them have been paddling. Now all of a sudden he's dropped the paddle and left her with just her own.
So all she can do is go in circles.

I know. I know. Where am I going with this?

Well I really do feel like that right now.
I feel as though someone has dropped their paddle and left me floundering, trying to make up for their sudden dissapearance.
And now I'm just going in crazy circles.
I don't like going in circles.
I'm tired of circles, guys.

Are you guys shaking your heads at me yet?
Trying to figure out how to make sense of all this?
Me too.

However... I do know that the circles won't last forever.
Either the other person will pick up their paddle again and help me steer straight or I'll figure out to go straight with just my own paddle ( and a little help from God...okay a lot of help).

Were you excited about the comeback part of my title?
I'm not making any promises...but I do have some things I've been working on.
I'm going to try and be a good blogger again :)

Here's something I threw together yesterday just as a daily reminder to me to not give up...
I used it on something I"ll show you later (I know I'm a tease).

(I printed it on my photo printer as a 5x7... if it's a reminder you need, feel free to grab it and stick it somewhere you'll see it)

I'm trying to remember that daily.
It's easy to give up when somebody else already has.
But that's when you have to stand up and fight even harder.

Guys... when I got married I didn't sign up for 'easy'.
I signed up for life.

I know you guys don't know all the details...but if you'll continue keeping me and my husband in your prayers, it is so greatly needed and appreciated.

Love you guys.



  1. :) I love your perseverance, Kelsey.
    Keep at it, girl. Just hang on. He will make your paths straight. ( not circular. lol)

  2. We have to be twins separated by birth, you have completely described my life right now. I just started The Purpose Driven Life by Rick Warren and have gotten a little insight and comfort from it. I will continue to keep you in my prayers!

  3. That's a pretty profound analogy coming from Gilmore Girls! =) I can only imagine what you're going through...but a do know that you're ONE TOUGH lady, and you serve a GOOD God!

  4. Just wanted to let you know that even though we've never met, I am praying for you and your husband daily. God is bigger than our mess...remember that:)


Reading your comments makes my day!!! I'd love for you to leave me some love and make me smile :)
