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:

A post about nothing

I took a week off from teh intertubes this past week. OK so it wasn't exactly planned or intentional or any of that. It's more like I got caught up in, well, life and kinda forgot to turn on the 'puter at all this week.
Actually, it was kinda nice. I spent some good time with the kidlets. I've been dorking out hardcore to the Avatar marathon all week long. And when I say hardcore, you have no idea. I got to play hairdresser for all 3 of my guys, cutting and coloring everyone. I'm doing my own tomorrow. I've enjoyed 2 books by 2 of my favorite authors. All in all, a peaceful sounding week, eh?
Except for the fact that it's the full moon, which is never a pleasant time around here. Mr. P. and I spent the first part of the week at each others' throats, more or less. I admit that I'm mostly to blame for that. I've been feeling quite distant, not only from him, but from my Lord as well lately, and that always has such a nasty affect on my personality.
Other than all that, not too much has been going on here on the home front. Now that I've had time to veg, it's back to my regularly scheduled rambling.

Til next squeak,
