Before I do anything I, as always, have some orders of business to attend to.
1. Thank you all for your prayers for Fulton. We have had lots of good news – his sisters are keeping us updated: they aren’t going to have to amputate his hands, and his eyes are undamaged. They’re taking the breathing tube out today and he might be walking soon. Praise God! Still, he’s going to be in the hospital for six months for treatment, so continued prayers are so, so appreciated.
There’s a fundraiser going to help cover some of the costs of the treatment as well as travel to and from the hospital, and other needs of the family. Do not feel at all obligated to donate, but if you can and would like to, it would mean the world. Everything helps.
2. On a slightly less serious note, the 78th episode of the Lizzie Bennet Diaries came out and it is a doozy… I’ve watched it eight times. It’s amazing. If you’re caught up in the series and haven’t watched it, GO WATCH IT.
3. New blog theme. Opinions? The sidebar still exists, but only on pages that aren’t the homepage, for some reason.
So, my report card. For once I did well! …ish.
Resolution #1: Finish most of my Christmas gifts on time.
I managed to get all my Christmas gifts finished (with the exception of my dad’s and Essie’s, who gave me permission to be late) and given to the people they belonged to on time! 🙂 I’ll try and get photos of them and post them soon.
Resolution #2: Be a little more organized.
I did okay on this, towards the end of the month – I went on a silent retreat that really snapped me back into gear. Unfortunately, that was only two weeks out of December, so I can’t grade myself any more highly than that.
Resolution #3: Work on SAT math.
I did, but not with as much diligence as I should have. (Also, I’m dodging it right now to write this so… Heh.)
Resolution #4: Remember the whole point of Christmas.
Midnight Mass did this for me. Just gorgeous.
Seeing as January is already halfway over (I can’t believe it – gah), I won’t set any resolutions this month, besides my New Year’s Resolution. 😛
As always, resolutions come from She Learns as She Goes.
Expect a post on Sunday – I’m off to color some pictures for my mom. Important business here at my house.
