Work is boring.
I'm the only aid on.
No one to talk to but the blog.
Why did I sign up?
I want to go to the "party" at Jen and Larry's.
Fireworks at midnight with a nice view from the hospital atleast.
Holly had her baby last night!
I think I'll make him or her something.
I learned how to crochet on Tuesday at our graduation/birthday party.
I got a haircut that day too.
Kathryn is awesome super haircut queen.
I'm going to Virginia in 10 days to see my dad.
12 hour bus ride here I come.
Atleast I know how to crochet.
Ok, gotta go answer a call bell......

And another one.......

There's a William Shatner song stuck in my head.

My dad just recently decided to grieve us all by suddenly moving to Norfolk, Virginia with no warning and no intention of ever coming back to us. I suppose it was warranted in that it was for a job, the only job that he could get since losing his old one at Fleet Bank. I'm awfully sad to see him go, he is the only commrade I have in my family and outside of the church. And now he's nine hours away. :(
I'm hoping, though, to go see him in the middle of January for atleast a weekend. It would be even better if while I was down there I cculd swing by the Georgian/No.-So. Carolina societies and visit with them since I've met none of them, except Tony.
So that's what I'm looking forward to.
Getting away from the cold ( I hear it's quite balmy down there now).

That's about all thats up with me, I'm enjoying the pre-end of school vacation that I designated instead of pre-end of school studying time :P Ed, Rocky and Sarah came over on Saturday night and we ate pizza, talked about family worship (do singles have family worship? and are they, even the women, heads of household?); annoyed my roomate I'm sure, and then watched the very long and disappointing Count of Monte Cristo. If you haven't seen it already i dont recommend it. I hear though that the book is much better, albeit about 800 pages. But anyway, it was good to hang out with them. Now that Sarah's here, I hope to hang out with her more often too (another girl my age! \:D/) We're trying to work out living together but it's not quite falling into place as hoped. My roomate wasn't really prepared to have someone come live with us immediately, also, we live about 45 minutes away from Sarah's new job, which would make transportation a semi-hectic situation. But I'm hoping to have her stay here and there as much as the roomate with tolerate. It'll be like having a sister again. :)
Thats all for now, I'm headed for the chat and some much needed catching up!

Wow I can't believe it's been three months since I've blogged.....time flies.
I moved and the new place is so awesome. The landlord (John) is really great to us, he even towed us up the long curvy driveway when it snowed here. The thing with bachelor husbands and four end up with a lot of stuff, and not a lot of cleaning. Whenever we need anything, we can just go over and ask, he probably has it: serving spoons, vegetable oil, and egg, a wrench, a desk, a treadmill (he just gave us his old one!)
I happened to notice, while searching for a vacuum cleaner, that he has (or his wife had) an old serger just sitting there collecting dust. I am trying to save up for one so when I saw it wasn't being put to use, I mentioned it to his oldest daughter. I asked if her mom still used it and if she could find out if I could borrow or buy it. She said she'd look into it and then the next day there was a serger sitting in our doorway! I thanked John about it later and he said that I could have it but it wasn't working properly (I found out when cleaning it that it wasnt working because a piece got jammed from abuse so she just ended up getting a new one). So it's mine! What a blessing, sergers are usually so expensive and this was handed to me! I had the lady I intern with check it out, since she is the sewing macine queen, and it looked fine to her, just the one part that will need to be replaced, probably cheaply. Yay!
The internship is going awesome by the way. Joan and I work well together, she's a good teacher and good company. We have a lot of time to talk and the Lord has given me many oppurtunities to talk about all things religion. Joan is a Christian, but in such a liberal church. We agree on many things, like interpretation of the Bible, homosexuality, women pastors, civil justice etc. Our favorite topic is holidays ;) I say ours but I really mean mine. Basically she's heard all the arguements against it and now she's just celebrating because she wants to, not because she can refute Scripture. Quite aggravating. I really need grace to deal with her because it's so easy to find myself just nagging, rather than having a thought provoking conversation.
This week is the last of classes then finals on Saturday, Monday and Wednesday. When school is over I'll be able to spend more time sewing for Oath of Stitches.
For now I need to go get some coffee then write my last paper EVER so I can go to the mall with the Birgers, Laura and Darren.

May God Bless all of you, and I hope I can catch up with you soon.....I miss you friends!
