“Everybody has a plan until they get punched in the face.”

Alan and I watched the Hangover 2 last night. In the great snowstorm of 2012 after two days of ‘working from home’ together, we had to find some way to pass the time. And while the movie itself was terrible, it reminded Alan of his self-proclaimed favorite quote of all time, spoken by the man … Continue reading

photos around seattle

Since Alan acquired the camera to end all cameras, I’ve inherited his old point and shoot Canon Powershot SD600. Lil’ C (Little Canon), as I like to call it, is small enough to fit into my purse, and powerful enough to take some decent shots. Here are a few of my walking around shots with … Continue reading

running as self-care

I’m not a natural athlete. While Alan is a semi-pro track racing phenom with a wardrobe of spandex bike kits that cost more than all my clothes combined, my only recollection of any willing participation in organized sports is comprised of one afternoon of little league t-ball. When I was seven. I remember trying to … Continue reading

A Day in the Life of a Churchplanter

It’s Friday. Fridays in my world mean sending out reminder RSVP’s for our Sunday gatherings, planning out the menu for Sunday Dinner and starting to think about how to clean and configure our house/worship space this weekend. By this point in the week, Alan and I have usually accumulated a pile of computer equipment in … Continue reading

family additions of the canine variety

Sometimes, it seems like you just can’t catch a break. Over the past few months, Alan and I have thought about rescuing a dog. In doing some research we found that Great Danes are being abandoned in our area at an alarming rate. Since I love Great Danes, and am a sucker for sad doggie … Continue reading

Netflix and Relationships: An Exercise in Compromise

Sometimes, Alan and I decide it’s time to spend some quality time together. Doing something other than sitting on the couch staring at our respective laptops and IM’ing each other from the next cushion over. If we’re feeling really wild and crazy, maybe on a Friday night, we used to pull on our shoes and … Continue reading

Musical Interlude: OK Go – “This Too Shall Pass”

I’ve seen this video posted on no less than FIVE blogs that I read, in a number of Facebook notes, and Buzz-ed through Google. I made the mistake of listening to it without watching the video. Trust me, WATCH THE VIDEO. Fun times.

Powertools, Marriage, and Fencing the Backyard

These past few months have been tough at the Klug house. As we continue prayerfully sorting out what it means to churchplant, how to faithfully serve our community and neighborhood, and what it means to be in relationship with each other, sometimes the best thing is for the Alan and I to spend some time … Continue reading

Water for the Weary

I subscribe to a daily devotional. Every morning, in the middle of free offers from Amazon or Restaurant.com that I can seem to successfully unsubscribe to, there’s a fresh delivery of scripture, commentary and prayer. Some days it’s great, some days reading through the scripture passage is the one redeeming quality of the message. I’m … Continue reading
