Earwigs are from the pit

I hate for this to be my first post in… like… two weeks. But, it’s going to be.


Where the crap did it come from? I have no idea. I just know I hate earwigs and it’s very disturbing to see one using my laptop as a bridge.

In other news, I had a pretty decent week at work. Monday was pretty low-key with few people in the office and a pretty quite campus overall since many took the day off. Tuesday, of course, was the day off. Sherry and I headed to her parent’s house to celebrate her birthday early (it’s the 16th) as well as pick up a few things.

Wednesday and Thursday were pretty good and we had Friday afternoon to head to the SAU empolyee picnic at Somerset Camp, where we hung out and enjoyed the outdoors.

The weekend promises to be busy, as usual. Scott and I did some more work around the house the past few days, preparing for our open house on Saturday. So, I’ll probably run some errands around town when that is going on. Sunday is church, church picnic, heading to Charlotte to meet up with the recently-engaged Nicki Keen, and then meeting the Randall’s for Superman IMAX 3-D in Lansing.
Before that all takes place, though, we’ll be helping our friend Mandi pack up to move to Wisconsin Saturday morning. Mandi was the one and only original member of our small group to stick it out the past couple years. Lots of people came and went, but Mandi’s been with us ever since Clark, Scott and I started it a couple years ago as Westwinds attenders. She’ll be missed. It was great getting to know her and see the work the Lord’s been doing in her life. She hosted us pretty much every Tuesday for a couple years; her commitment was amazing.

So, small group continues to evolve. Even more transformation will take place as church shifts to Tuesday and Friday, meaning small group will have to change nights. Yes, that’s right. I said church will be Tuesday nights instead of Wednesdays and Friday nights instead of Sunday mornings. So, it should be interesting to see how that adjustment transpires. But, I’m pretty excited with the possibilities. It should open up opportunities to visit other churches as well as taking real, actual sabbaths.
Unfortunately, it won’t start out working very well for me. Starting with Iggy’s wedding weekend at the end of July, I just might be tied up for six straight Friday’s. After Iggy’s wedding will be a wedding I’m photographing, Kensington’s leadership conference simulcast, Scott’s wedding and then the Giant Roadtrip to Montana with Sherry. So, that wouldn’t be very good to miss six weeks of church. We’ll see how it all works out. Maybe I’ll spend the $20 to drive back for church Friday night and then back to Troy on Saturday morning.

yo Joel,
Glad things are going well. I know what you mean about missing your church for that long. I just finally got back to mine after a month of going other places because of trips and such and sighed with relief at finally being home. :)
