The days are flying by. How did it get to be Tuesday again? And, once again, I am sitting at the computer instead of being under the covers and nearly asleep.

Today I have no idea what to write about. I am too tired to even pull out my writing notebook to see what I might have written in there.

Instead, do I focus on the drama of our 3.5 year old? Do I share the frustrations about current situations? Do I simply tell you how tired I am and head to bed?

Those are all options. Bad options.

There is a post I have been meaning to write for about six weeks. Tonight I don't have the mental energy to tell you that story tonight, but a picture is worth a thousand words. Right?

So, in 1,000 words, give or take a few…


On the right - that was our truck.

One day I will tell you the story, but now I am turning off the Christmas tree lights, taking the granola out of the oven, and heading upstairs to bed.


  1. Kristi,
    Take your well-deserved rest.
    We'll be here waiting to listen to your story whenever you're ready to tell it.

  2. That must be quite a story and I am sure you are thankful to be here to tell it. I trust no one was seriously hurt. Life makes us all tired sometimes but in your post I saw the glimmer of the Christmas tree, smelled the aroma of the freshly baked granola and felt the promise of a good night's sleep, too.

  3. Okay. That is a picture waiting for it's story to be told. I'm assuming you were all okay the day that happened. Get some rest. Then write!

  4. That looks like Beirut a few weeks ago, around the corner from my daughter's apartment....or maybe Cairo, or Jordan, or some other city in that part of the world where such sights are all too common. Stay safe.

  5. Yes, a picture can be worth many words. I hope you all walked away from that disaster.

  6. I will wait, but I assume this was not recently & you are all okay? Best to you in your resting, Kristi!
