an uninteresting update.

Well, here I am.  Haunting the dusty little corner of cyberspace where I've staked my claim.  I'm ridiculously bad about putting enjoyable things like blogging to the very back of the list when my life gets busy and crazy... it's always the first thing to go.  Which is sad, because I really think it would help me, mentally anyway (and my poor friends know I need all the help I can get in that area!), but it doesn't have a deadline attached to it, and so I don't.

Yet so much has been happening since I last wrote here.  I started College Plus to work towards a degree in journalism... I've worked in the real estate industry for the past seven or so years, and I felt it was time for a change.  To pay for said degree, I got a steady job that was quite interesting and challenging, but the hours were simply too many and there were some things that made me feel the need to quit... so after only three months there, the Lord made it quite clear that I needed trust Him and leave.  So I did. Now I am somewhat unemployed, as of the last two week.  And I must say I am enjoying it.  So much had slipped through the cracks those three months... housework, correspondence, school time with dear ones... you name it, and I've been behind on it.  I'm beginning to see the light at the end of the tunnel, but there's still so much I'd like to get done before I find another job.  But, the bills keep coming, which is very unfortunate.

Also, I am going to China in a little over a month for over three weeks.  I will be teaching English to highschoolers at a summer camp with a team from the Chinese outreach I go to most Friday nights.  We are excited to see all that He will do there during our trip.  And I am trying not to be overwhelmed with the millions of details about the trip (I am not zealous about details, so a trip that is centered around details is good stretching for me)... one of my sweet sisters, Michelle, and one of my very dearest friends, Sarah, and many other good friends will be going, so we're sure to have fun while we accomplish God's plan for us there. 

So, that's a brief overview of the big events of my life right now... and this is a boring and self-centered post.  I am sorry.  But my sisters and I stayed entirely too late last night at a friend's going away party, where I ate more chocolate cake than I should have, I might add, and today I pay the price by feeling very dull witted and uninteresting.  I am totally to blame for feeling tired, because once I got home from the party, I felt too tired to get ready for bed, so I lolled around the kitchen, and then at my laptop, and then loaded the coffee maker, and then lolled some more on my laptop... when I finally could think of no more excuses to loll, I went upstairs to get ready for bed, and then dawdled doing that.  Stupid.  I am not a night owl, but sometimes I give a good imitation of one, and I always pay for it the next day. 

Anyway, I hope to catch up with all my blogging buddies real soon and I hope to come up with something more interesting to say next time.

Godspeed to all until then.

This is the size of cup of coffee I need today. Most days, actually, but especially today would be nice.
