First Lapse

I think this is the longest I've gone without writing something.  I meant to write a quick blurb on Sunday but forgot to.  The weekend was pretty good for me.  No work, and I just did my own thing.  On Saturday I went out to a park and took some photos.  It was a good time.  Afterward went shopping at a very cute shop in downtown Geneva called The Paper Merchant.  I love that store.  It's been in business for a long time and I hope it stays around for a while.  Went to church that night and sang a beautiful song after communion.  I can't remember the words at the moment, but it's one of my favorite church hymns.  Later on that night we went to see some antique cars at the Dupage Expo Center and had some amazing ice cream at Oberweiss.  My dad and Jacob played chess while the rest of us watched.  Jacob didn't pay attention too well, so he got trounced by my dad.  :)  Poor kid.

I've been making sure to limit my time on UO so I don't get obsessed with the game and pass up important life experiences to play it.  

Sunday my family went to a water park while I stayed home.  Part of the time I played UO, part of the time I packaged up lots of books that I'd sold, and a lot of the time I wrote a letter to my friend.  I watched last week's episode of The Next Food Network Star and played with Pepper.  She was being devious.  :)  I worked more with my Artist's Way course and felt very good about my progress.  Talked with Faith for a while that night about what I was doing, and just things in general.  :)  I love her to pieces for being a creative person like me and loving to write.  We can connect on a completely different level from other people in my family.  I ended up staying up WAY too late playing UO.  Therefore, didn't get out of bed yesterday until 11:30.  Wasn't downstairs until 12:30.

Went to the post office to mail out a bunch of packages, came home and got excited to see that the shipping was all covered by half.com.  I was worried that I wouldn't be reimbursed enough.  Worked for my dad for 3 hours.  Hated it.  More excel spreadsheets.  I did the same thing today from 11:30-4:15.  Ugh.  Finally some time for myself.  But I'm so hungry I only want to make dinner.  I've resolved to make a buttermilk pie for the first time in my life this week.  Hopefully tomorrow.  :)  

There's some cool workshops going on at Archivers that I think would be fun to go to (and free!)  We'll see if I make it there.  Life is kind of at a standstill right now.  I've worked out a schedule for my days, mostly, but I wish there was some stability on the horizon.  I guess I just need to pray more and trust in God that everything will work out.  I've given up trying to control my future, but it looks like I've given up my future entirely, to my family.  Which may be true...maybe I'm just lazy and don't want to look for a job?  I don't know.  I'm still expecting this big bolt of lightening to come down from the sky and show me what it is that I'm being called to do, lol.  :(  Say some prayers, eh?

    It's been a pretty good week, thus far. Spent a lot of time with my family, enjoyed the transformation of my room from messy storage space to…
