C.S. Lewis drank here

A couple of days ago I ran across an ad seeking writers to come up with slogans and ideas for Christian T-shirts. You know: "Prayer -- the world's greatest wireless connection" (that's actually the example they provided).

I am not a wearer of Christian apparel but I couldn't resist responding to the ad. I always wonder "Who in the world comes up with this stuff?" and what if I were that person? Apparently any of us could be that person because the company posting the ad responded to my three-sentence inquiry with an invitation to start submitting ideas immediately.

I won't be doing that but I did challenge Matt to what was supposed to be a 15-minute competition. It turns out coming up with cheesy Christian slogans is way too easy. This is day three and I can't stop thinking of them.

Totally unrelated, Matt and I have been making mad progress on the house with the kids back in school yesterday and today. Things are coming together really well. Carpet, hardwood, kitchen appliances and light fixtures are almost finalized. Walls are being painted. Cabinets are being installed next week. The upstairs is trimmed out. Matt gave me a front porch swing for Christmas! When it comes time to sell, Matt's probably going to have to drag me out of there kicking and screaming.

"Modern Family" returns right now after the holiday hiatus so I'm out. Happy New Year, by the way!

Will you ever move into a house and think you might stay rather than sell? I'm curious if you Kirbys have wanderlust within the same zipcode, love moving too much, or just can't help it because you are in the realty business!? Regardless, I hope you guys love this new house and every house even more. Can't wait to see pictures. What did you decide on colors?

Ha! It's not wanderlust within the same ZIP, it's that this is how we put food on the table! We won't do it forever, though. After a couple more moves we'll probably somewhere to stay for a while so our kids can grow up settled in one neighborhood and school. I do love moving, though -- not the actual moving, but living in different parts of town, decorating different houses, never accumulating too much junk, etc. I'm happy with our paint colors except for the kids' rooms, but they matter the least. I'll take pictures and post them soon.
