I'm Blocked =/

So at my school they decided that blogger is to "chatty" and should be blocked. UGH. So I'm behind on my blogging. My free hour was the perfect time for that, and now it's one of the things that goes by the wayside in my home time. Sorry :(

I'll get back into it soon. I have too many kettles on the stove or irons in the fire or whatever cliche you want to use. :)

I'll be back soon. Keep checking in!

She's Not Perfect, But Almost :)

I'm missing my Chloe this weekend, so obviously she is on my mind. I have an amazing little girl who has personality, charisma, twinkling eyes, and a heart of gold. Chloe has her shortcomings, as any three-year-old does, but it amazes me how well-behaved and compliant she is. She wants to please her mama, and those around her.

When I walked in her room I saw her Halloween treats. There on the floor (among the Polly Pocket and Little People mess) was her neon pumpkin, full of treats, and her Disney Princess trick-or-treat bag, about half-full (candy overload, people!). This girl has a weakness for chocolate bigger than even my own.

However, she has played in her room for two days, and the only candy she's consumed are those pieces she oh-so-politely asked if she could eat. There are no empty wrappers, no stashed candies, no trails of Skittles.

Obviously she has more self-control than I do since the reason I went in there was to swipe some of her stash :)

I'm As Selfish As They Come...

Here goes another one of those blogs where I (GASP) express my opinion and offend someone. Readers beware :)

I've been having one of those nagging feelings again. You know, the one where something just keeps coming up, and I want to say something but I don't? Yeah. That one.

A conversation comes to mind.

"Have you heard that new Revelation Song?" my friend asks. My face has a puzzled look, I'm sure. It's not puzzled because I don't know what she means. It's puzzled because it's not what I'd call "new."

"By Kari Jobe?" I ask. Now she has the puzzled look.

"No, I think it's Phillips, Craig, and Dean."

"Hmm. Guess I haven't." I respond. Almost by Divine Intervention, I get into my car and flip to KCVO. Lo and behold, I hear PCD singing Revelation Song.

Since it "FIRST" came out, it's been all over the radio, and we even sing it at church now. I like the song, and the version is good, but it's not MY Revelation Song. We sing it too fast. It has lost its power in it's new, jazzier form. Everyone who doesn't know better loves it, but in my selfish little heart I want to say, "I HEARD IT FIRST! I LIKED IT FIRST!"

I first came across the song in January 2008. I love a good re-make, but I have to say I think Kari Jobe's original version is much more powerful, and sounds a little less pop-i-fied.

The music lover/guru in me comes out when people mess with my music. Sometimes with her claws out ;)

P.S. if you DO like it and end up checking her out, I also love "The More I Seek You," and "My Beloved," so don't EVEN think you found them first ;)
