I'm really starting to miss the Florida weather; it is not as constant as God (who never changes), but it stays above the 70s for most of the year, which I can deal with. It's starting to get (dare I say it?) cold here in Indiana. I just had to shop for a new fall wardrobe (courtesy of Goodwill), including things such as (gasp!) sweaters. I haven't worn a sweater in two years. Sigh.
Sorry for the delay in posts. Life has been very interesting, to say the least. My job with Cracker Barrel, unfortunately, did not work out, so I'm still looking for another job. It really doesn't help when my hours got cut again at C.J. Enough with the negative stuff. Jeff's band is now in the fourth round of contests on their way to state. This past weekend, Mom, Dad, and I got to watch them for the first time; they were stinkin' awesome.
Well, I'm out of stuff to write about right now. Y'all take care. Sabrina, I will call you very shortly (sorry for the delay:p).
By the way, what is with the all-black theme Pleo has going on? Not that it isn't cool (sort of), but it's also kinda annoying. Life is getting more exciting as the countdown begins on going back to FC. That excitement will probably last until about a week into the school year, when I realize how much work I have to do (he, he, he, groan). I'm still not sure why I decided to take Greek 2. I haven't even gotten through the first book Mr. Hamilton gave us to read (out of three). Study of the actual language has been next to non-existent. Must study MORE! I AM excited about my getting a new car before the end of the summer. That will be paid for by my job at Cracker Barrel (will be working there both in Indiana and Florida). Man, I'm going to be busy. Well, that's about it right now. Very happy to be alive and healthy, and grateful to have so many friends. Y'all take care!:)
Hey, y'all. Sorry for the long gap in between posts, but you know how it is. Now I'm looking for another job to supplement my income so that I can get a car to take down to FC. (fun:p) Paul and Alice's wedding was amazing. I still get a chuckle remembring how their car looked after Ethan..."decorated" it. I can't write too much about the wedding without getting misty eyed. I'm still not used to them being married. I'm just thinking...they have their own house now (away from us), Paul's preaching full time. Not that I'm not happy, mind you, but it takes some getting used to when your older brother no longer lives with the family. Not only that, but he won't be at FC for me to hang with, something else I'll have to get used to (baby cry). I am stuck here in Ellettsville this weekend, while the rest of the family+Shelley and Billy+my grandfather get to hang out in Illinois. I am so annoyed right now (but in a good way;). I get the house to myself, which means that I don't have to follow my mom's evil diet (I can't wait to get back to school, so I can have relatively "normal" food)! No waking up at 8:00 to have breakfast (I really do hate getting up early, unless it's for something good)! Well, that's about the end of my dysfunctional post. Love y'all!
P.S.--Paul, we need to plan when I can come over before I go back to school:)
I made it home just fine, though I'm getting a little tired of early morning flights. Thanks, Sabrina, for taking me to the airport!! I guess I'm really not free, with all the homework Mr. Hamilton gave us this summer. Things are going very well here, though I'm trying to ease Mom off of her health nut kick. Rice cakes and tofu; need I say more? I got my old job back at the mall; they called me, I didn't call them. It was just, "You want your old job back?" "Sure." I wasn't even planning to work there, but I had prayed earlier that day for God to help me find work soon, and He did. Can't argue with that. Jeffrey just had his last concert, which went very well. I'm prepping for the wedding (scary). I got my bridesmaid's dress, which was about an inch and a half short (always fun), so I have to get that adjusted. In two days, I'll be heading down to NC for the weekend, which will totally rock! Man, this post is random. Y'all take care:)
Yep, made it through "crunch time." Thanks be to God! Things like this really appreciate the main lesson of Ecclesiastes: without God, life is nothing. I can't imagine trying to rely on myself and not being able to have a divine Mediator and Comforter.
Shelley and Billy, major congrats on being engaged! Billy, be nice to her, or I'll find out where you live from my grandpa and beat you up. (:p) Greg, I'm glad you're coming back, though I'm sorry things turned out this way. It'll be great to have you home, though! Paul and Alice...I love the two of you so much (though it's likely that neither of you will read this post to hear about home much I love you). I'm trying to contemplate what life will be like next year without the two of you; I guess I'll make it somehow. Wayne and Mike...what to say to the two of you.... Your interpretation of 1 Peter 3 is dead wrong (and Mr and Mrs. Moyer agree with me, so there:p). After worship on Wednesday, Mrs. Moyer gave me Mr. Moyer's interpretation: the woman is more fragile and precious than the man, so she should be handled with care. NOT the woman is mentally inferior. I'm sure Emily and Jenna would like to hear y'all's interpretation. Wayne, this means that you're officially wrong about something. HAH!
I think that's about all for now. I am SO excited about next semester. I will be OUT of Hinely, and I will never go back, EVER! My classes are totally awesome, though I'll be taking four upper-d Bible classes in addition to Greek and the World Wars. Life will be...interesting.
