And for my second post of 2013...

You know...when I started blogging I got off to a super duper start.  Holy smokes, I was pumpin' stuff out like there was no tomorrow!  And can hear the crickets chirping.

It's time consuming and sometimes I feel a bit guilty sitting at the computer when I have tons of housework that needs to be done.  Crazy people that they are, my family likes to eat and they appreciate clean underwear.  The kids also liked to be picked up from school when it's completed for the day.  So between driving, cooking, cleaning and other stuff, my life of blogging becomes stymied.

Well now that it is summer, I'm starting up again. I hope.

First up...I may be a little late to the party but dear Orthodox peeps you have got to get yourself a copy of Everyday Saints.  You can find every human emotion in this will laugh, you will cry, you will jump out of your seat and want to hug God for being so awesome.  I can barely type the words "Egyptian Cat" and not start giggling.  Like the name implies, Everyday Saints allows you to relax just enough to realize that salvation isn't only for the spiritual superstars.  It's for bums like us too.  And if that isn't enough to convince you, Amazon has it rated 5 stars with 54 reviews.  On Amazon it looks like it only has the Kindle Version.  I know it's been selling out everywhere so a copy may be hard to come by.  I have one left at my parish's bookstore if you happen to be the area (Sts. Peter & Paul Orthodox Church in Phoenix). 

That's it for now. I think I hear an 8 year old boy attempting to make Kool-Aid by himself, so 'tis best that I leave.  See you all soon!
