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

Another Monday has sprung up on me, and it's time to meme along with Cat.

1) How often do you see your parents? Would you rather see them more often, less often, or about as often as you currently see them? I see my mom about 3 times a week. This seems to work. Any less and drama springs up. Although, I will say, now that she has accepted Christ as her Savior (woot woot Mom) she's got a peace about her that has greatly mellowed out our relationship.

2) What do you most like or appreciate about the opposite sex? ~blush~ The butt. Doesn't get much better than that. Mr. P. has a great one, as does Neal McDonough. ~blush~ Eh hem. Now that I've completed the embarrassing portion of my blog for the day... (no pun intended, get it, em-bare-ass-ed?)

3) With which person from history would you choose to change places? Probably none of them. Seriously. Although when I was younger I dreamed of being someone else, now I am very content in who I am and in who I am becoming. It's a good place to be.

4) What is the emptiest part of your life? ~snorts~ My savings account.

5) Show and Tell. What comes to mind first when you see this picture? Or, tell a story if it reminds you of one
When I was a kid, I used to love to hike and wander in the woods that surround my town. This reminds me of the nature center I frequented. Supposedly, there's a trail there that can take you all the way into Massachusetts in a day.

Til next squeak,

2 Squeaks from the Maze:

I love your answers; every week I get at least one snicker or giggle. This week is no different, plus good news about your mom and an embarrassing admission.

Happy birthday to Mr. P as well, since I'm too lazy to comment on that post separately.

It just wouldn't be "me" if I didn't say something at least somewhat foolish in each post. Well, maybe every other post. :D
