Oh my gosh...I'm moving back to the States...I'm moving to Texas...I'm moving to Austin...ahhhhh. It just hit me today. I changed my flight so I'm coming in less then a month;oct.15th.
Why am I doing this again?Why do I get freaked out all of the sudden when I have known this for months now?

I am woman, hear me ROAR...peep...there is something very empowering about being able to change your own car tire. For all of you butch men out there, you might not get it-- but as a woman who has always had Dads, Grandfathers, boy friends etc. out there willing to "hurry up and do the job" at hand, I was very pleased today that Bruce just "supervised patiently" as I changed it (just for the record, my dear grandfather did have me change a tire when I was just starting to drive at 16 because he knew it was important in case of emergency). Bruce seemed to enjoy hearing me coach and remind myself of "righty tighty, lefty loosey" throughout the tire changing experience.
Come to think about it...changing a tire is very easy, and so are a lot of the "boy jobs" that I have never done because the men in my life do them for me...why is that again?

I think I don't like my blog any more and need a new template...Im feeling uninspired;I don't want to use it much these days because I don't like looking at it. Its like the feeling you get when its time for a cut and color...I need a change; Everyone elses is pretty and fresh and new--and mine is old and boring...almost looks childish. I need to feel like a new woman. Im feeling very dramatic tonight
I just found out about Johnny...very sad. Im wearing black all week in honor of him...wait, I think I would do that anyhow...well, cheers Johnny, your legend lives on.
Today was a great day. We had our first semi-gospel brunch at the peach (we will continue to work on the gospel part- remember we're in the czech rep...they don't seem to get much US southern culture exposure here yet) and then some much needed worship.
Eric, from CA, is here visiting us after his trip to Israel and brought some sage from Mt. Carmel that he put into the gravy...it was incredible.
I realized a few things today...1) Its a huge relief to find out that your mom does NOT have MS...thank-you God. 2)I'm having issues focusing on the here and now (my head is in Austin already), which,of course, is not good and seems to be an ongoing struggle with me, and 3) I missed God and have not experienced an encounter with Him until today for a while now an don't ever want to wait that long again. It feels good to be back on track again
I am so so single. I'm living in a house with two families (whom I love dearly, but 9 kids and two couples...) and am the only single one over the age of 14. I'm grateful that I do have a few single friends that pop by occasionally (that would be Erika and Rachel at the moment) to keep me entertained. Last night I amused myself by singing into a potato masher, up on a chair,with back up singers (that would also be erika and Rachel;did I mention they are single too) to Justin Timberlake and there was very little wine involved this time...and there are pictures.
