1. So, the Altar and Rosary Society is about drinking wine for lunch on a Thursday?

    Just kidding. ;-) Yes! You answered my question. Thanks. That actually sounds extremely cool. It’s like your work maintaining the Church flows from praying the rosary and your devotion to the Blessed Mother. Exactly the opposite of the LCWR sisters.

    Great post!

    • LCWR = Zing! Joel was saying much of the same thing. He has been in engaged in a conversation with someone who feels the Church should ordain women deacons. If we just go ordaining everybody for service in the Church, we totally invalidate the lay faithful.

      Thanks for commenting, friend!

  2. I love hearing about the Altar & Rosary Society at your parish. My first thought was, What is that?, so I was thrilled that was your next paragraph. I’d love to have something like that at our parish. Sounds like a beautifully dedicated bunch of ladies.
    I had no idea you stopped working just last year! I stopped working while pregnant with my second baby also. We have soooo much to talk about. It really is a big transition from working mom to stay at home mom. I will admit it took me a while to fully embrace it and stop telling people at playgroups that I was really a lawyer. Ha ha, and then to read about dinner time! In our house, my husband was executive chef until I stopped working. Wow, what a rude awakening to have to cook dinner every night after taking care of the little people all day. And don’t even get me started on ironing (when I stopped working, he stopped taking his shirts to the cleaners. Yikes!)
    We MUST have a lunch with wine while at the CNMC and talk!!!!

    • Oh yes, we certainly need to have a glass of wine at lunch during CNMC! Looking forward to seeing you again! I was the assistant city manager for our Des Moines suburb. Great job but not my vocational call right now.

      How many oven burns did you get that first year? I have a few scars…

  3. Love it! Congrats on the shout-out from America’s Test Kitchen. That is really COOL! And thanks for the warning. I didn’t see you coming back there, but you really are on my heels! Boy, I need to get busy! Off to the kitchen I go… ;-)
