All About Me
Dawn - edging ever closer to 30, although I still feel like I'm 21. :) I'm married to a youth pastor ('Big G'), and have THREE wonderful kids: a five year-old son ('Little G'), a just turned two year-old daughter ('A'), and our newest little girl blessing, Baby R, was born May 28/07!! They keep me hopping as I juggle them, my WAH part-time job as an accountant, being a pastor's wife, and of course hobbies like quilting, scrapbooking, and blogging!

A boy and

Little G has mentioned a couple of times recently that he thinks we should have a pet. The other day at the dinner table he brought it up again, pointing out that we don't have any pets and that we really should get a dog. Since I refuse to get an animal until I am finished dealing with human, um, excrement, I launched into this long explanation about all the work you have to do for a dog (take him for a walk even when it's cold or rainy, clean up his business, etc, etc). When I was finished, he sat there and looked contemplative for a moment.

"What do you do with cats?" he wanted to know. :)

Choice is good...
But too much choice, not so much.

I just got back from the local grocery store on what I thought was a simple errand - buy a chocolate cake mix. Sounds simple. But when I got there, not only did I have to decide which brand of mix to purchase, but just in one brand, there were FIVE different types of chocolate cake mix! I had to pick between chocolate fudge, milk chocolate, devil's food chocolate, german chocolate, and chocolate chocolate chip.

Maybe it's so-called 'pregnant brain,' but I literally couldn't make a decision...I was frozen right there in the baking goods aisle of our small town IGA, totally incapable of making this monumental choice.

In the end I shook myself out of my stupor and went with the german chocolate...because it's a black forest cake I'm making, and the Black Forest is in Germany, right? Oh, and then got home and realized the recipe actually called specifically for Devil's Food. Too bad - I'm not going back!
