some 2012 updates and tidbits

it's been a week or so, and i'm still settling in to the new year.  

i've been reading my bible every day--i'm shocked at how small the day sections are.  i went back to church on sunday.  i didn't love it, since they talked about single people like we are some kind of pox, but i'm going to visit a new church this sunday with friends.

i haven't been journaling, but i've been doing my fair share of thinking, and learning lots of things about myself.  in the spirits of both introspection and exploration, i drove to pittsburg yesterday.  it's about a 40-50 minute drive each way (plenty of time for thinking) and i had never driven there before.  my aunt and uncle live there, so i've ridden along many times with my family, but never by myself.  i went to their big lots store (it's so much bigger and they have better stock, it seems like), i went to the dollar tree, and i got some coffee at starbucks.  i was going to go into hastings, but i didn't need the temptation of more books and movies.  hooray for my new tomtom gps!

i'm getting ready to head to bed with some books, magazines, and another house rerun coming on next, but first i want to share some tidbits i found in the magazines i went through.  these are the ones that were not big enough to fit on a whole page, so i scanned them, and threw them away.  enjoy!



these would be cheaper/more fun to make than to buy.  
i do remember those old bingo pieces from recess at school when it was raining.
