Are you there God? It's me...Kelly

This is exactly how I feel.   

I have totally fallen off the wagon this past oh...geez...6 months.  Ugh.  That's pathetic.  So I will blog some excuses for my behavior but they are really not acceptable in the long run.

You may recall from one of my last posts that I got a new job.  I got a new job that is in a new field.  Well I'm a nurse and I transitioned from being an ER nurse full time to being an ICU nurse full time and an ER nurse part time.  It may seem to some that nursing is nursing and it is to an extent but there are differences in both. 

I was stressing about this job change and the additional at home studying I would need to be successful.  I was in the first week of hospital orientation when I got a phone call from the realtor and 2 1/2 weeks after placing our house on the market it was sold. 

This was definitely not expected as there were several houses on our block that have been for sale and vacant for over a year. 

Oh husband got a new job too which required him to be out of town most of the summer.  During the school year he's back to studies and will hopefully graduate within the next two years. 

What do all these lead up to?????  A loss of organization in my life and I've missed it.  I've missed reading my bibles and their unique-ness.  I spoke to a friend tonight who asked how my bible reading and blogging was going.  I told her "Not worth a damn."  (apparently my goal of cussing less has also gone by the wayside) 
She encouraged me to pick it back up and I told her I kinda feel like I need to start over because I don't remember a lot.  She said just pick it back up and you will be surprised what you remember.  She also encouraged me to maybe start back up in the New Testament.  I continue to remain adamant that I will go in order. 
I told her it was like watching the last Lord of the Rings movie first....You just can't do it that way. 

Well I lay here in bed frustrated that Amazon doesn't have my Chronological Bible in the Kindle version and debating on how much it will cost me to get the bible on my ipod for my long commute. 

To all those that read this blog while it was active and worth reading I'm sorry for the past 6 months.  I hope to return to my blogging and reading.  I do want to let you all know that I really appreciate your kind and supportive words. 


  1. Hey Kelly, I'm just glad you're back. Looking forward to being a regular reader again. =) By the way, ESV and HCSB study Bibles are about 10 bucks each on the AppStore for your iPod touch. Both are really good.

  2. oh thanks Monk!! ps...are you really a monk? just curious

  3. Hi Kelly -

    welcome back. You really encouraged me back in the Spring as I was setting out on reading the Bible, and I hope you get some real benefit as you pick it up again yourself.
    Good to hear from you again.
