I love making lists

First order of business is my latest column.

Secondly... well, it's probably better to do this in list format.

1. I was promoted to a Hot Copy shift at The Post, which means that I actually get paid!

2. I got to march in Ohio University's homecoming parade with my roomie Jenn and the Big Brothers/Big Sisters float.

3. I went to the homecoming football game with Jenn and another roomie, Maureen, and we got to see the band play. We slaughtered Buffalo (the team, not the animal).

4. On Monday I got to participate in the pro-life vigil here! We got some snide remarks from passer-by, but also a lot of smiles and some folks stopping to talk to us. It was coooold, but fun.

5. On Wednesday night, I got to spend a wonderful evening with Sister Mary Emily and Sister Alexandria of the Sisters of St. Cecilia. We had a home-made meal in the basement of St. Paul's, and the Sisters gave our little group of women their vocations talk. They remembered my sister, Sister Elizabeth, from when she went to visit them before she entered with the Sister Servants of the Eternal Word. "You look so familiar!" saith Sister Mary Emily. It's a small world.

Afterward we got to go upstairs and pray the rosary before the Tabernacle. Heavenly.

All in all, it has been a marvelous week. The kind I wish would never end.


  1. Yay! Maggie gets money! :throws confetti:

    Wow, congrats on having such a great week! :hugs:

    I hope you showed those stupid (nicest word I could find as I don't swear on other people's blogs, lol) people (who's mothers DIDN'T ABORT THEM) who's boss!

    Actually, you were probably all saintly understanding and forgiving because you're like that...

    Buffalo is apparently tasty, from what I've heard. ;) ;)

    Did your brother get a Homecoming date for this weekend?

  2. Maggie,

    Wonderful post. I have enjoyed reading this post and will continue to enjoy them.

    I hope you are well; I know the last few weeks of college can be a tiring time.

    I hope to hear from you soon.

    God Bless and Assured Prayers,
