I always get onto my brother for not blogging, of course he does live on a different continent and that is how we keep up with him (other than the few chats that we do every once-in-awhile online)…but still, there may be someone out there that tries to keep up with me via this and so I decided to do a blog. w00t!! And the villagers rejoiced!
So last weekend (Feb 28) was a little crazy way to say goodbye to the month, with a freak snow storm. They said flurries and maybe accumulation of up to an inch. I ended up with anywhere from 4-6 inches (depending on where you were in my yard) and a cancellation of the morning service at church the next day. Below is a picture of my beautiful snow angel I made (I did it for my friend Karen, I was explaining that it was good to be a kid again every once in awhile and promised a snow angel).
Other things…there are so many. Sometimes I think I go so I won’t think, then I realize that I’m going all the time and I haven’t stopped to think. It’s a crazy cycle that. There is a lot of stuff going on in my life right now, and some decisions that are going to be coming up within the next month or so that will change some things (hopefully and God willing). But since I’m going day by day right now, it’s on the outskirts of my mind, and I know it’s coming but then I’m almost afraid to hope.
Some really EXCITING news is that I leave for Ireland on March 19. YEAH!!!!! I’m so very excited that I will be getting to see my nieces and nephew (you can catch up with their latest at The March Gang). I’m also really excited about getting to see my brother and sister-in-law too…it’s been a long six months (though I did get Riley for a very ‘short’ weekend in November). They live in a small village called Donaghcloney, which is where the movie ‘PS I Love You’ was filmed. I’m going to get to see a real castle and visit Giants Causeway while there. It’s going to a fun getaway, and I have a travel companion on this trip as well. The ‘American List’ have started coming in and I will only be allowed on change of clothing because the rest of the space in my suitcases will be taken up with ‘things from America’ that are desperately
needed wanted by those in Ireland. Something fun to look forward to!!!
Well, it’s very well past my bedtime, but I have become something of an insomniac lately and have trouble sleeping. But none-the-less tomorrow is a work day and I must be off. Hope everyone has a merry rest of the week!!!
