Still running for the cheese (or why this blog still exists)

As my regular readers can tell, this has been a dry year for me. Just look at the number of posts this year vs. 2008! Awhile back, I had considered either shutting down the Maze, or starting a new blog that would more accurately reflect where I am in life now. Truth be told, sometimes I come here, look around, and feel distinctly hypocrytical about the things I want to write. I'm sure I'm not the only one to ever be in that kind of place.
As the time in between posts has grown longer, I came to realize something. Without the past years' material, where I am now makes very little sense. What good is the destination without the journey? As Christians, so much of the best stuff that happens to us is in the times God is molding us to His image. To throw away the evidence of that process would somehow cheapen the result, I think.
So, here we are, dear friends. I think my little mousie may just have rounded a corner finally. Some things will change around here to reflect the changes in my heart. And you know what? That's ok. As much as I typically rage against anything changed in my life, I'm learning to accept the God-given ones. My prayer is that some of you may be encouraged by what you read here. Hey, you may even be challenged. And of course, if you know me, then you know you always stand a good chance of being offended too. Not intentionally, to be sure! Just know that what you find as you wander this Maze with me may surprise you as much as it does me.

All that to say this:

Monday Meme

Good one this week from Curious as a Cat!

1) If you were to become a prostitute, how much money could you expect to charge per hour? Hmmm, well seeing as I'd be giving up what little dignity I have...LOL. I'd say a hundred an hour. Then again, maybe Mr. P. could fork out more ;)

2) With whom do you like to talk on the phone the most? The IRS! Just kidding. Seriously though, I don't talk on the phone much, so I'd say maybe those random times every now and again when an old friend will call out of the blue. Hey it could happen!

3) If tomorrow you lost the person you love the most, how would your life change? I don't know how I would cope without Mr. P. or our kids. See, it's a 3 way tie between them for my love. I know that if I lost one of my kids, I'd just check myself into a mental hospital for awhile. And if I lost Mr. P., well, I'd have to be strong for our sons, but it'd be a hard road to travel. My life would be so different. I'd have to go back to work, and mostly give up on all the dreams I have for my future because when I dream them, he is right by my side.

4) For what would you most easily be driven to kill? My family. No questions asked. Someone hurts my kids, they are dead. Not very Christian of me but it's the mama instinct.

5) Show and Tell. What comes to mind first when you see this picture? Or, tell a story if it reminds you of one.
(funky plant) Feed me Seymour FEED ME!!!

Til next squeak,
