Oh, Joy and Gladness!

January 30, 2008 Rhonda Schrock Snow Day

There is ecstasy. There is joy. There is glee and delirium in the wigwam today – school has been canceled! It’s blowin’ like crazy, colder’n scat, and the roads are icy. Inside the wigwam, we are cozy, warm, and feeling festive. Last night Brave #1 was telling me that we need to do our weekly […]

A Girl Can Dream, Can’t She?

January 28, 2008 Rhonda Schrock 01/28/07 Goshen News article

Note:  This “Grounds for Insanity” column was published in January 2008. We’re in the middle of another Indiana snowstorm. Not a blade of grass is showing and if you’re like me, you’re getting plenty tired of battling frostbite in all regions (nether and otherwise) every time you go out to get the mail. I know […]

What kind of kids is that man raising?

January 22, 2008 Rhonda Schrock It's all his fault

Goodness – what kind of kids is Grant raising? Tonight at dinner I made a delightful white chicken chili that really was delicious. Jamison, furrowing his brow darkly, said to Kieran, “This may not be chicken meat. We’d better check on the neighbors.” I cackled. Later, I told the boys, “This really went together fast. […]

There’s Really Nothing Happening Here

January 22, 2008 Rhonda Schrock 01/21/08 Goshen News article

Right about now, many people hit the mid winter blahs. Holidays are over and Memorial Day is a long way off. At our house we are between sports, so all is quiet on that front. Life sometimes seems mundane in the absence of big goings-on. It’s kind of like when I ask the men, “So […]

Egads!

January 18, 2008 Rhonda Schrock Stay tuned for this drama

Uh-oh! My husband is talking about going to Indy in February to take a solid five days of classes for his Series 7 license. I think he would leave on Sunday and come back on Friday night, not sure. That means (shark in the water music) that I would be riding shotgun on this crowd […]

We Have Lights, Sound, and Action

January 14, 2008 Rhonda Schrock 01/14/08 Goshen News article

In any marriage there are hitches and glitches that can cause frustration and migraines for both parties. We have been married for 20 years now, and an ongoing issue for us springs from the basic premise that men are sensitive to light and women are sensitive to sound. On certain days, this conflict would be […]

Teeth! Diapers! Rashes! Cranky baby!

January 11, 2008 Rhonda Schrock Where's the coffee?

Does this sound familiar to anyone? Anyone?? No wonder the baby’s been so cranky. I felt in his mouth today (I know, I’m risking a perfectly good finger with which I type and make good money) – he has two big molars in on the bottom and a big, swollen spot on his upper gum. […]

Kids Say the Darndest Things

January 8, 2008 Rhonda Schrock Say what?

I’m starting a new list. My kids have their quotable moments, as do kids everywhere, and by cracky I need to be writing them down. I’ll add to it as the material comes in. “The ladies go loco for a brother in a polo.” Jamison, 12/07. Perhaps he thinks a polo showcases his muscles to […]

What’s YOUR next step?

January 8, 2008 Rhonda Schrock A challenging question

On Sunday, Pastor Dave brought a very passionate and challenging sermon on faith. The question he asked us was, “What is your next step of faith?” This came during a time when members of our church were down in Kenya working on the Abandoned Baby Center when the rioting broke out after their recent elections.

Extraordinary Moments in Ordinary Days

January 7, 2008 Rhonda Schrock 01/07/08 Goshen News article

With Christmas 2007 now a book of memories, I was telling my husband the other day how much I had enjoyed it this year. “Why do you think that is?” he said. It was a good question, and it made me stop and really think about what, exactly, was so satisfying about it. One thing […]
