The Week in Review: Well. We had a busy birthday-anniversary-birthday week! It was fun, hectic and veryexpensivethankyouverymuchforasking. But the BIG NEWS of the week is about Baby Jesus. He lost part of his thumb and pinky in a Nativity-related accident. My son is pretty sure He can “fix himself” though.
Introduction into the Society: I’m happy to Welcome Mrs. 007 to The Society. I love her blog name (we’re big Bond fans, but the older ones…) She submitted this awesome post called We are Kindred. Go, give her some love, but watch your back, she’s got a spatula.
1. Tell us a little about your blog (name/reason why you blog):
The name of my blog is Mrs.007 and it is called that because that is my name. I am Mrs. Bond in real life and it just seemed all clever and fitting. I blog because I need/love to write, and the fact that I have fallen in love with this whole Bloggy World has been a big surprise to me. It’s also a way for family and friends to keep up with our little family.
2. How long have you blogging?
I started blogging on my Myspace page a couple of years ago. Then I stumbled upon some other blogs and decided to start fresh on my own website in May ’08. Now I struggle to keep up with the 70 blogs in my Google Reader on top of trying to write on my own blog. I really love it though!
3. How would you define THAT family?
I would say THAT family lives under “Murphy’s Law”. On any given day at any given moment ANYTHING can happen. I think it’s wonderful and chaotic and sometimes painful to be a member of THAT family.
4. When did you discover you were a part of THAT family?
I guess I suspected something when I realized that I was buying band aids every week and meeting deductibles WAY too soon! I have gotten very used to that old familiar feeling of all of the blood in my body rushing to my head. (either out of embarrassment or because I am watching one of my kids get hurt or almost get hurt)
HI! I'm Kristen. I'm here to encourage you as a wife and mom and remind you there's a little bit of THAT family in all of us. I write books, run Mercy House and try to remember I am third (God first, others second). I'm glad you're here.
