I am a horrible blogger. I apologize, people. My lack of blogging has not been due to a lack of stuff to blog about. Nor even a lack of desire. I’ll attribute it mostly to a lack of time. This time of year is always super busy for us. We are almost a week into our first of two 3-week trips this summer. And then we pack up our house and move. I am doing my best to stay mentally grounded and emotionally open (as opposed to being like a pop bottle that someone is shaking and will eventually have to open…).
I am currently laying on a sofa bed in our friends’ basement in Ottawa, our bedroom for the week. We are here because National Training Camp is taking place at the Univeristy of Ottawa.
I also apologize to those who have joined us in Ottawa since Sunday. It appears that we have brought the crummy Vancouver rain with us. When we checked the weather as I was packing last week we saw sunshine and warm temps. But they were wrong. In all honesty, I am not exaggerating when I say there has only been one day in the last 7 months that I did not need a jacket and/or rubber boots. I even prayed that Jesus would make me regret my decision to leave my sunglasses behind today. He did not see fit to answer that prayer. 😉
I cannot wait to be in weather so hot and humid that my hair frizzes and my eyelids sweat.
But like I said, I am doing my best to take every thought captive and stay mentally grounded. The fact that I have to travel by myself for a few days and am not currently freaking out is a huge testimony to God’s work in my life. I feel like a weenie, especially now that I’ve admitted it to all of the internets (inside joke… yes I meant to pluralize that). I have chosen to leave NTC early and fly to NC so that I can be in a friend’s wedding. This is big stuff, guys. Huge. And I want to do it with a smile on my face.
Anyway. It’s 9:30 and I’m pooped. (A phrase I taught my Argentine friend last night on skype. I suppose she hadn’t heard that word in reference to anything outside the toilet.) And you’re probably tired of trying to follow my stream of consciousness. Heard any good jokes lately?
