Company Girl Coffee 05.01.09

Good morning Company Girls!!

I'm so glad to be back for the Friday morning coffee. The last two Fridays I've been out of town and away from a computer, first flying to Indiana to see my family and friends, then flying to Ohio to see my college friends.

My current life events are as follows:

1) Dave and I are moving out of our townhome and into an apartment tonight and tomorrow. I'm slightly stressed about it, but so thankful that we have several people coming over tonight to help with moving everything. And thanks so much to Debbie and Brian for letting us sublease from them! :) (They are moving into a new house right exciting.)

2) Work is crazy overwhelmingly busy. If you think about it, pray for my peace of mind. Between work, moving, and planning things for the new house, my head is spinning.

3) Dave found a tick on Rogan last night. It was soooooo disgusting. Thank goodness for the internet...I looked up the best and easiest way to remove it and it was taken care of in no time. (You can see a pic of the process below. :) ) Dave killed it with a lighter at flushed it down the toilet, so don't worry, it won't be coming to get you or your pet. I then immediately put flea/tick medicine on both Rogan and Maggie. I don't want my pups getting sick.

4) My weekend travels have finally come to a hiatus. I still need to put up pics from last weekend in Ohio, but you can see pics from my Indiana visit here.

5) I started a mini garden in my office. You can see pics here. There are already some sprouts growing (so cute!), which I will share on the blog soon.

Alright, that's all I can remember to mention in the life of Kara right now. Mother's Day is coming up...has anyone figured out what you're getting your mom?

And finally...I know you've been missing the trivia. :)

From 3 weeks ago:

What is the shortest chapter in the Bible?

Answer: Psalm 117. It has two verses. (Go check it out!)

And this week's trivia:

How many books of the Bible did the Apostle Paul write?

I hope everyone has a blessed weekend!!

(If you're not a Company Girl and curious as to what I'm talking about, check out Rachel Anne's Home Sanctuary at Every Friday we link up to catch up on each other's lives and leave each other some encouragement. You should join, too!)


  1. Wow, you HAVE been busy!

    I make all sorts of candies, you can find them all at my Etsy shop,, and yes, I do ship! I'm in Oklahoma, I ship Priority Mail.

    Thanks for stopping by!

  2. I'd be happy to do whatever you'd like! I have sampler listed, but I can do it with different items.

  3. Sounds like you have been busy! I will be praying for you...I TOTALLY understand how you feel in the midst of chaos

  4. As fun as seeing family and friends is, isn't it nice to come home? Although coming home and moving right away does sound a bit stressful!

    The mini-garden is darling!

  5. What a busy time you've been having, sending out prayers for you! Your garden looks fantastic :)

  6. Welcome back! I like to do things on my own, but for moving, definitely accept any help offered and ask for it too. A lot faster that way.

    Glad you had a good trip. I've been to Indiana once for Norm's cousin's wedding. I think the people of Fort Wayne were very surprised to see so many Asians there at all once. haha They weren't prepared. =p

    Good luck with your little garden! =)

  7. How long did you live in Fort Wayne? Maybe you know Norm's cousin's wife, Kristi Rohrer.

  8. Moving makes life crazy! Hope you get settled in quickly. Sorry about the tick that's never fun. I had to remove one once from my son's back. He was only 4. Not fun.
    Have a great weekend.

  9. I'll have to check out Psalm 117. I'm part of a women's study group and we're studying the Psalms. Have a great weekend!

  10. Oh ~ good luck with the move!

    Love that little garden ~ so cute!

  11. I remember last spring both of my dogs got a tick on themselves and I was shocked because in the twenty some odd years that we've had dogs...I've never encountered one before...let alone two...I'm hoping that my dog doesn't get them this year. It's nice that you're home for awhile.

  12. Love your office mini garden...hope the no-shows decide to sprout. I think I finally gave up hope of starting anything! Ah, life! Too much going on, I guess.

    No wonder your head is spinning! I knew you were busy, but man! Moving in the middle of everything is crazy. I hope you'll be able to get settled quickly.

    Ticks thoroughly disgust me! I found one crawling on ME after walking in the woods and almost threw up. No kidding.

  13. Glad you had safe travels and it's good to have you back!

    I love your itty bitty garden. :) Thanks for sharing the pictures. It just goes to show me that I could have a garden here too, even if my soil outside is not compatible!

    Many blessings to you!

  14. Moving is *not* my favorite I will be praying that you are able to keep the Sanctuary in your move!

    I loved your garden story. I bought some of the $1/herb pots at Target and am still getting little sprouts. Between overwatering and flushing everything out...and forgetting to water, I don't know if mine will make it. I will watch yours grow instead!
