A quote from another blogger

"Relationship is anchored in two directions - a common history and a common future. That's what you do with friends. You reminisce and you scheme. You look back and you look forward. When you move away, you disconnect with the common future that you thought you might have had at one point...and conversations become a stilted rehash of the last time you got together. The only thing that's worse than not connecting is reconnecting and finding out that you don't have anything to say."


Night one

Onething is off to a great start.

I have seen so many people that I know. Very exciting. Sarah Edwards is having a baby. Very exciting. I bought Clay and Audra's cd's. Very exciting.

And basically I've tried 3 different times to write this post, and really, I am too tired to write anything of any sense. So good night and good bye!


Right now the computers are down. We are 2 of thousands of people waiting to register. Yes, we are having fun. And yes, our butts are cold!


Do you know what this is?

This is a semi FULL of blue styrofoam!!! Do you know what you make with blue styrofoam????? EVERYTHING!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!


A beautiful snowy dusting!
winding stair gap at 845 this morning.



Merry Christmas!

I hope everyone is having a wonderful Christmas!

Tomorrow, Kat and I are driving out to Kansas City for Onething!!! I'm not sure if I'll have opportunity to post or not, so you may not hear from me until next week.
The evening session of the conference is being broadcast on Directv Thursday, Friday and Saturday from 8-10pm on channel 365 (God tv).

The sad thing, is that Betsy isn't coming with us because she is so very sick. We are all going to miss her.

My shopping list for when I get out there:
  1. Clay's cd- Restoration
  2. Audra's cd - Fading
  3. Marcus and Tim's new cd


T-rex and Atilla the Hun

If you were planning on seeing Night at the Museum, then I think you should go. It is a fun movie. If you are one of the people who are too old for fairy tales, then I am sorry for you.

The Sound of Music

I forgot how much I absolutely love the Sound of Music! Julie Andrews is amazing, and Christopher Plummer - so hot!

Guess I'm through with sleeping!

I woke up at 6:3o this morning and decided I should get up. So I made myself a cup of tea and sat on the couch and worked on 3o Hour Famine planning for February. And now it's nearly 10am, so I suppose I should have some breakfast, take a shower, etc.


I love Atlanta in the rain

I drove to Atlanta and back this morning to pick up Levi Sowerby from the airport. It poured cats and dogs all the way down but was pretty nice on the way back. He is getting ready to go back to Cyprus for a 6 month internship on January 4th.
Today is the last day of work, and on Tuesday I head out for Kansas City!!!

How long does it take the average person to wake up?

Am I still sleeping??? No. I don't have much time to sleep. Or to blog. I just go. :)

But I did take a nap on Wednesday. That's actually a rather funny story. There was a knock on the door which woke me up and I jumped up to answer it. Now, anyone who truly knows me knows that it takes me at least 15 minutes to really "wake up." The person at the door was the mailman. He came to the door because Camila had another package that wouldn't fit in the mail box. It was really very nice of him.
I took the mail, said thank you, and closed the door just as he said "merry Christmas." It was then I realized I had just slammed the door in the face of someone wishing me a merry Christmas. I thought, "that was rather rude." But since I wasn't really awake yet, I didn't do anything about it. But needless to say, he will be getting a nice Merry Christmas present in the mail box soon! :)



I feel like I could sleep for a week! I woke up this morning because my phone was ringing (shoulda turned it off) and then found out I had 30 min to get ready for church. Never have I so badly wanted to play hookey. :)



We have now officially entered the "most wonderful time of the year!"

(What's that? The high today was 70???)


My crazy week is almost over...
...but only to be followed by my crazy weekend. I don't think I'll be able to stop for a minute and catch breath until January 3rd!

I've been in the gym, or at church, or at rehearsal, or at court (GAL) all week. Tomorrow night as soon as I get off work I am driving to Charlotte for a youth leaders conference and returning Monday afternoon in time make it for my 3:30 class.

I'm definitely not complaining, but it kind of concerns me that if I'm not careful I could mess a lot of things up because my schedule is so packed right now. I thought I was doing a good job with not over committing, but maybe I'm not.

A bright spot today was rehearsal. The Christmas show is going to be amazing. It's full of funny as well as tender moments. The finale' gave me goosebumps and shivers and made me cry tonight, it's that good. And it was just a rough run through!

P.S. In spite of - or perhaps because of - the last crazy week, I have started and completed a new crochet project. It's a baby sweater and is quite cute, although it aparently looks rather like a sheep. :)
