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:

If you don't have anything nice to say...

Then don't say anything at all. No Remember, 'tis my Maze, and I decide what comments go through or not.

Now, that said, I got some wonderful news this week. Mr. P. informed me that my SIL is getting married!

Here's the happy couple:

SIL popped the question, and K accepted. We're thrilled to have her as part of our family.

It's funny to think of being young and in love again. Mr. P. and I were the same age when we got engaged, and it seems a lifetime ago. Yowsa, we're old.

Anyway, I wanted to share the happy news. Weddings are always a joyous time, and I know this one will be no different.

Til next squeak,

3 Squeaks from the Maze:

Congrats to SIL and parter, Mrs. P! Wow, 18 *is* young to get married, but they look very happy. Best to them! (BTW, how goes the studying for the GED? It can be tough to get back in the study groove after several years out, but you can do it!

SIL just turned 20 on New Years. Still young, but hey, it's a pattern in our family.
Thanks for the well-wishes!

Studying has been ermm, fun. I am kinda worried about the science portion of the test, but there are some good online practice tests out there that I've been taking.

Congrats indeed. The freaky thing? I woke up today thinking, "I haven't heard from Mrs. P in awhile--hope all is well there!" So glad to find out that things are better than well!!
