My Weekend in Instagram Shots

It’s true. I’m a notorious procrastinator. But this time, I honestly wasn’t putting off my project. I simply could not figure out how to make time for it – or, more accurately, enough time for it. So what started out as a tight deadline turned into an insane one.

Thankfully, my mom and my husband took over kid duty so I could write and read and format and write some more. And so, while I’ve been working on this project for a few weeks, the last few days can be summed up like this:

Yeah, that’s coffee. I resorted to coffee, people. (Kind of. Does a white mocha count as coffee?) It made me shaky and tasted terrible, but it did get me past the Sunday afternoon nap impulse.

Oh, by the way, I know all this talk about “my project” and “a big deadline” is annoyingly vague. I can’t wait to tell you about what I’ve been working on, and as soon as I can, I will give you the whole lowdown! Pinky promise!!

Until then, pray for me as I face edits and submissions and more nap-less afternoons?

What big projects are YOU working on?


  1. Praying for you and your big project…can’t wait to read about it. =)

    I am supposed to be working on packing up and getting rid of stuff for our big move across country. How many boxes have I packed since the decision last October? ZERO… I lost my steam. I lost the sense that God is in this. I lost my courage to do this… so, yea, you could pray for that when you are high on the caffeine. Wink, Wink.

    Best to you Mary!

      Thanks, Lina. Oh man – I don’t envy your packing, although I know your move is going to be awesome. I can understand how so much time to process and think and worry would make you lose steam, though. Praying for a renewed energy and confidence in your journey!!

  2. Sorry that you were so busy. I’m a big procrastinator too. Praying for you as you work on this! :)
