Friday 3 C’s


For the past three months, I’ve been waiting to share some news.

The wait wasn’t as easy as I thought it would be.

Something fun happened yesterday and…
I get to share on Monday! I’d love for you to join me.

Let’s Talk: What are your cares, concerns, and celebrations today? I don’t know if you realize how much I look forward to reading them on Fridays, so thanks for sharing!removetweetmeme

    Are we allowed to guess? Nah, I'll be patient and wait for Monday. πŸ™‚

  2. Carol J. Garvin

    It's been a long wait for you so I'm trusting Monday's news is what you were hoping for. I'll be back on Monday with party balloons, ready to help celebrate. Might have to bring some chocolate cake, too. It isn't a party without lots of chocolate.

  3. Robyn Campbell

    I can't wait! I'm not that patient. Why do you tease us so?? πŸ™‚

    My three C's haven't changed. You probably get bored, because mine never change so I'll spare you. But Ivy is up for a 4-H award tonight. There will be food too. πŸ˜‰

    *crosses arms and pouts*
    But I don't wanna wait until Monday!

    Cares: Just feeling generally overwhelmed. I know it will pass. Probably just need a good nap!

    Concerns: My job is changing next year. I should get the final word by the end of Feb. I am ready for the decision to be made. The speculation is making me crazy.

    Celebrations: Our foundation was fixed quick and easy.

  5. Diane

    Aaaaaaaaaack! Can't wait for Monday!!! :O)

  6. Jennifer Shirk

    I'm about ready to stomp my feet! I want news!!!!

    Concerns: My editor emailed me and told me she was really enjoying my manuscript and I should have answer soon. Well, if she buys it, I'll be excited, but if she doesn't I'll be crushed after an email like that. πŸ™ So now I'm on pins and needles… I wish she hadn't said anything. LOL

  7. Keli Gwyn

    I'm with Jill. I'll be happy dancing for you all weekend, Katie.

    And I'm bringing a bushel basket full of noise makers on Monday, the kind that squawk when you blow them and unfurl a colorful "tongue," 'cause after all the waiting you've done, girlfriend, this party is gonna be wild. And wonderful. And loud!

  8. T. Anne

    You know I'm happy dancing for you already. I'm not 100 percent sure, but I think I have an inkling. I cannot wait for Monday's big news. I'll bring confetti and brownies. I think Erica covered everything else.

    Cares: that I won't be able to find our winter gear in the garage this weekend.
    Concern:do I really want to leave eighty degree weather for snow?
    Celebrations: my cupcake class is finished! Thank you Jesus!

  13. Rosslyn Elliott

    Cares: A friend of mine is ill. It's hard when good people suffer.

    Concerns: Working on controlling my annoyance at passive aggressive female behavior. Reciting under my breath to myself: "The only behavior and attitude you can change is your own." πŸ˜‰

    Celebrations: KATIE GANSHERT!

  14. Jeanette Levellie

    NO Fair!!! Tell us now, tell us now, tell us now!!! She chants while banging her empty mug on her desk… do I sound like your fifth graders? Maybe more like Brogan, huh?

  17. Cindy R. Wilson

    Oh my gosh! I can't wait for the good news–makes me happy!

    I've been waiting to receive some news for awhile now, though I don't know if it will be good or bad.

    But, yay! I get to celebrate some this weekend. Both my sisters birthdays and my little girl's birthday.

  18. Holly

    Hee hee…that's all I'll say, as I do a little jig for you πŸ™‚

    Cares – I'm wearing a Vikings jersey for Packer's Friday at work…I may not make it out of here alive.

    Concerns – I feel ever so slightly off, like I'm about to get sick. NOOOO!! Happy thoughts, happy thoughts…

    Celebrations – Seattle tomorrow! First Class, baby!! Free adult beverages and candy bars in flight! Need I say more?


  19. KLo

    Cares: That my students will do well on their midterm exams.

    Concerns: That my students will not do well on their midterm exams because exam week has been peppered with snow days, so consistency has been incredibly difficult.

    Celebrations: Another snow day today : ) (I didn't sleep well last night, so having a day to take it easy is kind of nice, despite it exacerbating my cares and concerns … life is strange)

  20. Jill Kemerer

    I'll just go ahead and happy dance for you all weekend long, girl! Can't wait to come back on Monday!

    Concerns: I choreographed a dance routine for our grade school cheerleaders and they're debuting it tonight. I hope it goes well!

    Celebrations: We're having pizza tonight. I know most people wouldn't celebrate that, but it really sounds good and I am celebrating it all day. πŸ™‚

  21. Kelly Lyman

    Oh my! I can't believe you did that to us!!! My concerns and cares–I just want to get back to a normal state of mind!

  22. Terri Tiffany

    Oh WHY do you make us WAIT???? LOL But I can't and I will be back on MONDAY to celebrate with you!!

  23. Sarah Forgrave

    What?! Now you do realize I'll be very busy next Monday with my sister here and all, so couldn't you just whisper it in my ear right now? No one else has to know. πŸ™‚

    Can't wait to find out!

  24. Wendy Paine Miller

    There have been some mighty exciting Mondays lately. You know your news is making me fly high! So excited for you!

    Cares: Discerning God's will.
    Concerns: Discerning God's will and we are having a slumber party with 9 girls here tonight and school just got cancelled. Hope it lets up.
    Celebrations: So many birthdays this week! Love my kiddos. And for you, dear friend. I celebrate b/c I know a little about waiting and I love to see that there is another side. πŸ˜‰


  25. Laura Pauling

    My biggest concern right now is 1. that the fire I just started actually catches, and 2. with my husband gone, somehow the kids and I manage to remove the snow from the driveway!

  26. Jessica Nelson

    You make us wait until Monday??? STINKER!

  27. Bonnie R. Paulson

    THAT IS JUST RUDE! Lol. You and Keli have now done this to me. I don't know if I can wait. If it's something you can email, you best get on it. lol

    Can't wait to hear. (I'm the one that can't wait to read the end of the book, I have to know RIGHT NOW.)


  28. Tabitha Bird

    Can't wait!!!!! I will be here!

  29. Heather Sunseri

    Oh, Katie, I'm so excited to hear all about your news! I'll be here for the party.

    For me? I'm concerned my kids will be going to school year-round with the amount of snow days they've had. (Out again today!)

    Starting a new project that I'm excited about.
