A work in progress

It's been a busy summer and I've found that spending time outdoors really helps me to cope with the stresses of life. I think it's been a tough time for most people we know (at least financially), but we're used to rolling with the punches around here. The kids are going to summer camp(s) and eating a lot of ice cream. Big M toyed briefly with becoming a vegetarian, but succumbed to the lure of Chicago hot dogs.

I found a few more Anima Sola references recently: first, the production company for the HBO series 'Big Love'shares the name; and second, I was watching this show i stumbled upon called 'Saving Grace' and the character has a door in her bedroom painted with anima sola. As in the movie Gothika, this seems to link up with a past history of sexual abuse.

Tonight I hope to meet up with my GLOS group and get some prayers focused toward one of our members that is battling cancer right now.

As for me, I've been working on my health and overall wellness, working hard and enjoying the sun when I can. I hope to acquire a custom hula hoop soon as trade I did with a friend for a logo design. In less than 2 weeks, The Nurse will graduate Nursing School. After she passes her boards, I'm sure we'll plan some sort of party. We're all excited to finally see the light at the end of the tunnel!
