-My summer TV favorites:
Women's gymnastics. Bless their hearts last night. But how awesome are the gymnasts and how much do I love our Texas girl Nastia Liukin? It is so fun to watch their smiling faces when they finish a good vault or whatever and they grin from ear to ear. The Chinese girls were especially fun to watch last night when they were doing their floor exercises. They knew they were going to win gold and they were performing in front of a home crowd. You could just feel their happiness. I'm thinking that some of the Chinese gymnasts (however amazing to watch) must have stuffed their training bras/sports bras a bit to pass for 16-year-olds. Also, there is one I cannot even look at because she is so painfully thin. Wow, coaches, give homegirl a Skittle!
Wipeout. Such a guilty pleasure.
So You Think You Can Dance. The last two episodes were very painful for me to watch because I loved all three of the final female dancers. Courtney was probably my fave but I knew from my friend Jennifer's expert tutoring that Katee should be the winner. I just thought all of three of them were amazing. And I think I've said before that I'd like to be Cat Deeley, or at least be her bff.
Even so, come quickly Office season premiere!
-I must be feeling better because today I called Curtis and asked him to bring me a chili dog from Sonic during his lunch hour. This is unusual because on the 4th of July we went to my parents' house and I sat in the living room with my head in my hands while everyone else was at the table eating chili dogs. I couldn't even look at them. That was a rough night. What a difference a month makes. Thank you, Hubs, for being so sweet to bring me lunch! It was so good!
-Our NOG group has been so fun this summer. We are going out for Mexican food in two weeks and then we are going to decide what study to do next. It is such a diverse group and I love it. One thing that amazes me is that almost every life experience you can come up with is represented there. We have some great discussions and a lot of laughter. One reason why I think this group has been so refreshing to me is that I had not done a Bible study with my peers since college!
-Why is a helicopter circling above my street right now? Should I be arming myself? Don't these people know Jackson is trying to sleep and Mama is trying to blog? Good grief!
-Check out www.FindingBalance.com. It's a great resource for anyone wanting to know more about or get help with eating issues. It speaks to the person who has been medically diagnosed with anorexia as well as to the person who is finding herself getting a little off balance with eating or exercising. I think it's awesome that they provide help for the person at point A,B, or C so they don't have to get to point M or even Z. We can need help long before a doctor would diagnose us with something. I heard the founder, Constance Rhodes, speak at a retreat several years ago and was so blessed by her ministry.
That's all for now! Have a great day!
