7 Quick Takes Friday - May 11, 2012

I'm so happy that the Baking Malcolm Home event is tomorrow. I could REALLY use a couple of hours surrounded by people who aren't insane. (Too much time on FB and Twitter this week. Sigh.)

In related Malcolm news, check out this fantastic online auction! I ADORE the Yoda hat. Gabriel would look so cute in it!

I've been in a serious funk lately. It all started with Hilary Rosen's comments about stay-at-home-moms. It just renewed my desire to BE a stay-at-home-mom, and I feel very depressed every morning I have to wake up and go to work instead.

Collin got his prospective graduation date (9/10/12)! If he can get a job that pays more after he graduates, maybe I can realize my dream. But that's a big "IF" in this economy.

I've also taken another step that may help us reach that goal. I don't know if it'll come to fruition, but... well, we'll see what God has in store. I don't want to be too specific at the moment in case the opportunity fizzles. In the meantime, please pray for me?

I'm going to try make it to adoration next week. I could use some extra time with Jesus.
