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

It's been quite a long time since I've done one of these. So long that when a friend mentioned she was getting a meme up and running, my first thought was "Hey, I used to meme along with Cat! Why'd I ever stop doing that anyway?" So, conveniently, it's Monday, and here's the meme!
1) When were you most selfish? Least selfish? Hmmm, I don't know if I've ever been selfish enough to earn a selfish bitchcake, but then again, perhaps I have. My best guess would be any time I steal the Xbox 360 when Mr. P. or the kids want it. And that's at least a few times a week. Least selfish? Each and every time I deal with my in-laws.
2) Who is the best person for you to talk to when you have the blues? My hubby, hands down. He always makes me laugh, or at least gives me a furry shoulder to cry on.
3) Do you ever take naps during the day? I'm a lazy SAHM. Need I say more?
4) Show and Tell. What comes to mind first when you see this picture? Or, tell a story if it reminds you of one.

It makes me think of all the times I have to tell the boys to get stuff out of their mouths. A+ parenting huh?

Til next squeak,
