change is good.?

I usually thrive on change. I usually find change to be exciting, something new to look forward to. I've told people time and time again that I love change. I like to change my hair and rearrange furniture (well, I'd like to, but Doug isn't game). I keep finding new places to store stuff in our house, and I like to change my opinion frequently.

However, in the last week I've had a mental break down over all the change happening around me. No, not because I can't find where I've moved stuff in the house. There are lots of significant changes happening. I can't name it all because some of it is personal to others, or some of the change hasn't been announced yet (no, I'm not pregnant).

It's just a strange place to be. Right now, I feel like I'm completely removed from everything that was my status quo. I'm sure months from now I'll have a blog that tells how enlightened I am and the good plans that are unfolding. But, right now it's all a little tell you the truth.

sophie the mag light

Maegan has a new best friend. Her name is Sophie. According to Maegan, Sophie loves God, takes naps, and her job is to "find day". Sophie is also Doug's weapon of choice. Before sleeping in Maegan's doll crib, Sophie slept under Doug's side of the bed. This was a perfect spot just in case Doug needed to club an intruder in the middle of the night. Now Doug is going to have to venture into Maegan's room, change Sophie out of her nightgown, and then club the intruder.

Sophie is Doug's Mag light. Maegan hasn't ever gotten into playing with her dolls. But, for some reason she has adopted the oversized flashlight as her best friend. She dresses the flashlight in clothing, talks to it, and uses "Sophie" to find the day. Ahhh, imagination!
