7 Quick Takes Friday

It’s Friday and that means it’s 7 Quick Takes at Conversion Diary.

1. One is the number of times the husband ate fast food for dinner this week. I was REALLY unmotivated at the beginning of the week. My cupboards got bare and I became wowed all over again by people who live out in the boonies. Just think how prepared they have to be. I would fail miserably as a country housewife. I’m barely functioning as a city one.

2. Two is the number of pounds I gained this week. If you are wondering how on earth this happened when I’m not eating out, you will understand when you get to number seven.

3. Three is the number of white hairs I yanked out of my head this week. No Kate, I will not be highlighting or coloring my hair…yet!

4. Four is the number of times I should have ridden my bike this week. Zero is the number I did. This probably also contributed to number two.

5. Five is the number of times I was tempted to go to Chick-Fil-A this week. One time I was even in the drive thru. I’m not kidding! I was trying to convince myself that getting a lemonade wouldn’t be cheating. Luckily, God won. I hope I don’t associate Chick-Fil-A with temptation once Lent is over.

6. Six is the number of pages I read this week of the The Brothers Karamozov. I need to read like 100 or more.

7. Seven is the number of pieces of carrot cake I ate this week. It’s probably more, but I’m only copping to seven. There’s only so much I’m willing to admit to the twenty people (Yes, I think we’re up to twenty now!) who read this.

Have a great weekend! One of our nephews is getting confirmed on Monday. We’re really proud of him.

  1. I like your sense of humor. I certainly hope there’s more to do in Lincoln this weekend for you too! What brings you there?


    • We’re actually from Lincoln. Our nephew is being confirmed on Monday. I’m happy to go home for a visit, but I wish it was May. May is so pretty in Nebraska and we wouldn’t have possible snow to drive through.

    This is by far the best blog ever! You entertain me every day.

    Are you hoping to get this blog signed into a movie deal?! I’m thinking it’s not going to be a romantic comedy since the husband is often referred to as JA!!


  4. Just came over to your blog from Pancakes and French fries, this is extremely random, but I saw your comment in her comments section and felt I had to get confirmation! Is this true, we can eat meat today because it is the feast of St. Joseph?! I have never heard that, but honestly, that would be great!


  5. Make that 21 people! I found you through ConversionDiary, and I think you are really funny! I’ll be back, promise!
