Monday Update #86 – October 20, 2014

What I Enjoyed This Past Week

Another Week With Norah! This week was all about learning what life looks like with a newborn. It is crazy how your priorities and schedule shifts with a new baby; earlier this week we had a doctor’s appointment at 1:15 pm, and already at 8 am we were discussing how to set her feeding schedule in preparation for the appointment!

Having a new baby also changes your definition of success. We now celebrate when she sleeps for more than 2 hours at a time, if she has a dirty diaper, and especially when she does not dirty a new diaper immediately after I change her.

What I’m Reading (Articles)


  • Lockheed Closes In on Atomic Fusion

    Fusion promises unlimited clean, renewable energy without the nasty byproducts of the uranium-splitting fission that drives today’s nuclear plants. The problem is figuring out how to contain it.


  • Wrongly Translated Latin Motto on Library

    “Nos Secundus Coniecto Omnia”
    It’s a powerful-sounding Latin statement that is fit for higher learning.
    That is until you translate the expression.
    Should Be: “We Confirm All Things Twice.”
    Translates To: “We Second Guess All.”


  • 9 Things Everyone Should Do When Reading the Bible

    5. Recognize That Lamenting is OK.

    Yes, there is joy and peace and hope in Christ. But true believers still mourn and lament. There is space in the life of faith for complaining, tears, grit and depression. Just look at the Psalms.
