Day Two: March 10, 2011

Today is day two!!  I am proud to say that today I was not even tempted to check out Facebook!  I didn't even miss it.  There have been times that I wish that I could get on to get a picture, or email address.. But not enough to actually make me want to sign in!  I also didn't have any slip-ups!  I read the nine daily readings today.  It actually took 2 hours and 18 minutes.  Though, it was pretty right on with the 15 minutes per entry.  I ended up reading one section a few times, so that I could understand it better.  Had I not needed to reread that, I would have been right on 2 hours and 15 minutes.  Let me tell you, it flew by! I thought that it was pretty cool that today's reading included Passover, in the Old Testament section, and a bit of Jesus' last week in the New Testament!  Yesterday when I started, I started out on January 17th, (I started late for the year) and tomorrow's reading will begin with February 2nd.  

We leave for CO tomorrow.  We have a pretty jam packed weekend. I think that while that may cause some temptation to not stay on track, that I am so excited about this that I will still be doing my reading, even if it is after everyone else goes to bed.  One thing I do miss about Facebook is my support system of friends and family keeping me accountable.  That may be part of why I really wanted to start this blog. While I am not sure that anyone is actually even reading it (other than my Mom) I don't want to have to post publicly that I couldn't even last a week!!  How pathetic would that be?!  Sure I could just not post anything about it at all, but then I would be lying to myself in a way.  No, I will be brutally honest to myself, and to this blog!  Even if that honesty ends up painting a less than honorable picture of myself. :)

On a completely unrelated note, my Nebraska citizenship will be official tomorrow.  I will be getting my Nebraska permit.  Well, providing I pass the written test.  It has been about 11.5 years since I took the Colorado test.  It should still be common sense right?!  I hope that the NE laws don't differ too much from CO ones!  How pathetic would I be if I failed the written permit test at 29 years old!?  I guess not much more pathetic than needing to take a written test at 29, due to the fact that I still don't have a license!  That should not be too far behind I hope!  11 years of a learners permit has been enough.  Maybe it would be rather comical if I waited a few years, then the age of my permit, would be the same age as a typical teen when they receive their permit for the first time!!  :)  I am ready for this in my life!!

Well I guess I will wrap this up for tonight.. 
Until next time!


  1. Just want you to know that I have been following your blog and it's truly inspiring me. I thought maybe it would help keep you on track, knowing other people are keeping up with what you're doing. Just want to keep this short... This isn't Facebook, you know! lol

  2. Thanks Michelle! It does help!! I need the accountability!
