“Sometime” or “120 hours and counting”

Well, I figured after about five days I’d write something again. You’d think with me having not worked the past two days that I’d make time to blog…but I didn’t.

Anyway…here I am in Pigeon. I pulled in about 2 a.m. last night. The last hour was killer. I drove at night because I didn’t want to loose half my Wednesday to driving; so I left after small group last night. But, when you arrive at a place at 2 a.m. and get your eight hours of sleep, you essentially…lose half of a Wednesday. I could have left at 7 a.m. this morning and essentially accomplished the same thing…and been a lot less groggy doing it. Oh well.

I’m now plodding along on a dial-up Internet connection. Thankfully, blogging and checking e-mail doesn’t take a lot of bandwidth. But I think my parents pay-per-minute online, so I probably shouldn’t abuse it much.

I took this week off work. I’m not really "on vacation" per se, but I am away from the office. I was planning to do a mini-tour of west Michigan’s coast for a vacation a few weeks ago. But I eventually decided that I couldn’t afford it. Camping can be expensive when only one person is paying!

So, I pushed the vacation back a few weeks and opted for my parent’s house instead. Keyword: free.

I have a few things I want to accomplish these next few days:

  • spend quality time with God
  • finish The Chronicles of Narnia book #2
  • lay out a business plan
  • work through the CSS training book "Eric Meyers More on CSS" (it’s a Web design thing)
  • Begin reading Erwin McManus’s "An Unstoppable Force: Darning to Become the Church God Had in Mind"
  • take some pictures

When I take a step back, I realize that’s quite the list. So…I better get started.

P.S.: I’m seeing U2 at the Palace in less than a week. And I’m seeing David Crowder in GR in less than a month. STOKED!

How did everyone I know end up with U2 tickets and I never even heard of them being on sale? Man, that nuts, and I want to go!!! Any way, enough of that...I'm glad you're getting time with your family. I know how important that is. Just last week I left Cedar Springs and headed for good ole' Montrose because I couldn't stand it any longer. I needed my family. Hug your mom a lot, it helps. Also, my roomate is going to that David Crowder concert, too. So, without even knowing it, you'll probably run into her...but that doesn't matter cause you don't know who she is and most likely never met her before. I just thought I'd throw that out to be funny. I love this area (GR). The colors are beautiful right now, so you should definately bring your camera when you come over here for the concert. Lots of things are photo-worthy. TTYL!!

Joel, It was nice to run into you last weekend! Enjoy your time in Pigeon (I always knew it was in the thumb, I just wanted to make you show me on your own thumb for kicks.) And enjoy David Crowder and U2. Rebecca Wright
