An Apology for 14 Emails

I’m so sorry!!!

It’ll come as no surprise to you that I’m not a website developer.
I’m once again trying to find a theme that I can customize and get working correctly so that I can start blogging on a regular basis.

Every page I add from the demo content goes out to all of you as a new post. I can’t figure out how to stop that so instead I’m asking for your kind indulgence. A few friends texted me with “Your Blog’s Been Hacked’ alerts. No, it’s just me flooding your Inboxes with lorem ipsum placeholder text and photos that don’t look at all like me. If I Love Lucy had a blog episode it would be like this.

Nothing Happens in a Vacuum

I’m currently reading a book called The Obstacle is the Way by Ryan Holiday.
It’s about the great stoic philosophers and how we can turn trials into triumphs. I’m currently at Practice Persistence, so I’m gonna continue working on getting this theme set up. I hope you don’t get any more unintended posts, but if you do just remember it’s Kelly pressing on through the obstacle of not having grown up with computers and having spent more time with household appliances than with open source software.

The New Normal

Now that we’ve got that covered. . .what’s up with you?
How has the new normal affected you and your family, your job, and your sanity? Back in late March I laughed at an Instagram post form a young Christian mom who posted a photo of school books spread across the dining table and this caption: ‘We woke up this morning and every Mom in America is a homeschooling Mom.’

Not everyone’s gift right!!!
One day I heard James Dobson share about his wife Shirley suffering a badly broken leg. She was laid up, laid low, laid out for about 6 weeks without being able to put any weight on the leg. He had to stay home and take care of their two small children. He said after just a week he went in and told Shirley he’d rise up and called her blessed (Proverbs 31:28) if she’d find a way to get well fast and resume her duties. Apparently the kids were wearing him out and making him crazy. That was long before Focus on the Family.

Mindset Matters

My husband and I have been sequestered—I like that word better than isolated. It sounds like we’re on an Exclusive Retreat at a luxurious but undisclosed location, anyway we’ve been sequestered since March 6th. We have a routine and it suits us. We’re closer than ever, but we feel the loss of family connection and the fun gatherings that summer usually brings to our house and pool.
Plus we really miss going out to eat (cuz cooking is a bore) and the movies, we miss the movies. We’re old, what can I say? Our small pleasures are just that—small.

Also we have a rule: No fighting. We’re all each other has for human contact and companionship. Be Nice is the #1 House Rule around here.

I hear Gary telling me that Door Dash has just delivered dinner so I’ve gotta go, but please, please leave a comment and tell me how you’re doing, what you’re doing and anything else you want to share.
Again, sorry for the boat load of Lorem Ipsum emails.

God Bless,



It is a long established fact that a reader will be distracted by the readable content of a page when looking at its layout.

    Oh Kelly!!! This is hilarious! Glad to know you’ve not been hacked. Thankful for your example of continuing your own education…a great way to redeem this particular time 🙂

      I don’t know how much of an example I am, but I’m amazed at how much you can learn with Google and 3 hours of free time.
