A Day in the Life: American Version

My living room. 1996. My junior high self was chilling on the floor reading a book when out of nowhere my sister does a front flip and her feet land on my face. *crack* goes my nose. I’m pretty sure my nose was broken that day.

My kitchen. 2012. My 27-year-old self goes to hug that same sister, things get confused, and her head bangs my nose. *crack* Seriously? I start laughing and crying at the same time. You can see from the picture that it isn’t too swollen and not broken [this time]. It’s not even crooked – that was just photo fun. I just had to share the irony with you. Whose sister cracks their nose twice and doesn’t even use a fist?!

You can pretty much imagine what goes on when I’m at work in the emergency room, but that’s only a couple days a week. What do I do on my days off? Well, besides getting beat up by my sister, here’s a sampling…

I drove with my mom to pick up my car from the mechanics (failed mission) and on the way back sat in the trunk, pulling the trash can up the driveway. That took me back to my 7-year-old days and made me giggle. :)

I wrote a paper and four discussion posts for my nursing course - woot!

I started reading Bridges’ The Pursuit of Holiness which led me to these lovely verses from Exodus 15:11, 13:

“Who is like You, O LORD, among the gods? Who is like You, glorious in holiness, fearful in praises, doing wonders?...You in Your mercy have led forth the people whom You have redeemed; You have guided them in Your strength to Your holy habitation.”

What a joy and honor it is to know personally the one and only God, Who continuously does wondrous things, Whose love never fails. Who I can fully trust because He is always faithful to guide me and has redeemed even me from my sin.

I did WiiFit. What can I say? I really like it!

Played games (Rummikub and Quirkle) and talked with my family. Found out a study was done and people who regularly partake of sugar tend to be more kind and generous. That led us to make yummy brownies and eat them with ice cream, so we will be very nice tomorrow. *grin*

Sorry about your nose.

By the way, your sugar-intake is fine. You are one of the nicest people I know!
