I feel brainless. Not stupid, mind you. Just without any new and exciting tidbits to impart. Why is it when you have a blog, you feel like you have to share a juicy piece of information that will teach, or inspire, or wow others?

Impressing others was not why I started this blog. I started it to share my journey and have an online “ID” to connect with other writers in the blogosphere. I didn’t like the look of that anonymous grey head ID. I wanted to be ME!

So, today I have nothing for you. 🙂

I will solicit prayers from all you cyber friends of mine. We got an offer on our house and are now waiting for bank approval. I’d LOVE for it to go through and get on with life. I’m ready to downsize and live simply. I’m ready to not have people traipsing through my house all the time and trying to keep the house immaculate. lolololol….hilarious, I know! After 9 months on the market, I’m weary of the invasion of the people parade.

Give me normal. Give me a routine.

Oh, and I’m ready for the Olympics to be over. I’ve enjoyed it, but I’m tired of staying up late to see all the good stuff. I need my beauty sleep. I pull my cranky pants out more when I’m sleep deprived.

I hope you all have a great weekend. Read alot, write alot, and give lots of smiles.

  1. Oh Sherrinda I'll be praying this is the right buyer!! It's been a LONG haul for you!

    And I'm ready for the Olympics to be over too! After a while it all starts to blur together for me! (But then again, I'm not really a sports-lover so I don't know much about skiing and sledding and they all seem the same to me!)


  2. Believe it or not, you've made a very valuable point about the value of normalcy : )

    My fingers are crossed for your house sale going through quickly!


  3. I'm suffering from Brain Mush myself 🙂 I totally get ya.

    I hope you have a great weekend and that your house sells!


  4. Hey, Sherrinda! I pray that everything will work out and you'll be able to move soon! Have a great weekend!


  5. Hi Sherrinda –

    For a “brainless” post, I thought it was quite “brainy.” 🙂

    I watched the Women's Figure Skating last night. Sleep is looking mighty good.

    Hope your house sale goes through without a hitch. I'll be praying.



  6. Every once in a while, it's refreshing to peek into the real life of a blog author. Like being invited in for a cup of tea or coffee and just chatting about this or that. Thank you.


  7. Oh, may this be the RIGHT family for your house.

    What a wonderful post about taking a break, resting in the Lord…being real!

    I will pray for refreshment for you, Sherrinda.



  8. I was just thinking how tired I am too after watching the Olympics. I've been DVR'ing them, so at least I can catch up the next day (um, yeah, IF I have time). lol


  9. Praying for your house to sell! I need to tap into living simply. Things are getting a bit out of control lately.

    Have a great weekend!


  10. Having people in and out of your house is tiring. Boring and normal are good, I agree. :O)


  11. Like being invited in for a cup of tea or coffee and just chatting about this or that. Thank you.

  12. I relate to your feeling of having something to “entertain the room” on each and every blog and we both realize that is pressure of our own making.

    I also understand sleep deprivation; 7.5 hours is my necessary, consistent sleep time.

    Your approach is good, as evidenced by the replies, a genuine expression of feeling, especially among friends, is always welcome.

    Godpeed on the house.


  13. Great news, Sherrinda!!
    Your family will be in my prayers and we've got to have another phone conversation soon. That was fun!! Very encouraging!


  14. Good Luck on the house! I hope this works out for you!


  15. Jody, Thanks for the prayers! And I'm with you on the non-sports. I am soooo not athletic!

    KLo, ah…the value of normalcy! Give me boring any day!

    Marybeth,ha! Brain Mush is a great way to put it!

    Kristen, thanks for the prayers! And congrats on the your article!

    Susan, I love the ice skating, but I couldn't stay awake for it! Work has just been a killer lately. 🙂

    CJ, I like being real. As a pastor's wife, sometimes I feel like I can't be myself…kinda goofy sometimes. So I really value transparency. 🙂

    Patti, thanks for the prayers. You are always so encouraging!

    Sarah, have fun catching up with the Olympics! I have no way of recording them, but maybe that is to my benefit. 🙂

    Tamika, I love the idea of living simply. If only I could really do it well! lol

    destrella, thanks for the well wishes!

    Sally, thanks for the well wishes and prayers! You are right in that the pressure is all my own doing! I try not to, but sometimes…it just creeps in.

    Pepper!!!! Yes, a phone chat would be fun, for sure! Keep on praying about the house! I sure want it to work out!

    Kelly, thanks for the well wishes! I will definitely shout for joy if it all goes through! 🙂


  16. I haven't watched the Olympics AT ALL this year. Kinda sad I've missed all the ice skating, because that's really the only part I like. But, oh well, in another four years…

    Hope y'all can close on that house. That would be amazing! 😀 Have a good weekend!


  17. I hope you have a great weekend and that your house sells!
