I have the “opportunity” (or I have to) give a 45 minute presentation next Thursday at 10:30am (central) on how God has impacted my life, how I got to the point I’m at now, and how I see my ministry as a DCE. Wow. This presentation is part of my DCE certification interview. I am preparing and freaking out only about every 5 hours now. I could use some prayers. Certification has been this far away thing that I would… get around to. Well, its here. I hope I’m ready.
Other things… Andy & I are moving soon. Less than three weeks. Hurray! We are also on an aggressive savings plan so that we can buy some land to build our house. I’ve made copies of the floor plan and hung it in the bathroom. I might make a mini copy and paste it to my check card. That might be more effective. 🙂 Hopefully we will be able to buy some land before next summer. I’m excited about the idea of that. I’m not sure if I love the idea of cutting my own lawn, cleaning my own gutters, and having to fix my own broken stuff… but ehh… I think we can handle it.
We’re also planning a trip down to CA in November. Can you tell I’m excited (6 months early)? It will be a really fun trip. We’ll get to go to the Youth Specialties conference and go visit Kali on her internship. And visit wine country… did I mention that? I will also get to see Jayme that week too. SO EXCITING! I miss friends I can just hang out and do nothing with. You know? Like you call and say “Hey what are you doing? Can I come over?” There is no debate about what are we going to do? where should we go? where should we meet? No… you just hang out. I miss that. I mean Andy is awesome and I love spending time with him, but I miss girl friends. Haven’t quite found that group here… they are either still going out to bars or having babies. Yikes.
Anyhow… things are good. May is the craziest month ever. I am pretty overwhelmed. I could use some prayer on that too. That I work smarter, not harder. That is my mantra these days.
