Well, I've got the blues. And NOT for Kraft Macaroni and Cheese. Every time Anne and Bryan go home Jeff and I have a couple days of moping around, but this time has been particularly hard. I think that it must be because they actually moved over the break to Georgia and we've never seen their house or their school or anything. Everything is new for them, and although they were excited to be starting a new chapter in their lives, there was also some understandable nervousness and fear about this new place. I think that it transferred to me, because watching them get on that plane to go home was pretty hard.
I find myself in somewhat of a "gap". A lot of my readers will remember a similar blog posting by a good friend of mine about being in the gap. There are several situations happening in my life that I know are of God, and yet it requires patience and waiting. In my heart I know that I am prepared to wait, it's just that sometimes the waiting is, well, kind of boring. After the excitement of Christmas and the plateau of New Year's Eve, I find that my house is a mess, Jack is sick with a cold or teeth or both, Jeff is frantically working on a video editing project for church that is due in a couple of days, and I am left to myself with my melancholic thoughts. I am very thankful for my friend Gaylene, who is working her butt off on my eliptical as I write this, because she is always around to help cheer me up. I am also thankful that my husband has such a servant's heart and is doing so much to serve in the church. I think I need a party or something, you know? Any body want to come party with me? I was looking at all the fun pictures from my friend G-knee's party and that just depressed me even more! So maybe I just need to invite all of my readers to come and hang out with me, k? I'll see you around 7! I don't have any cool video games but I can make some great appetizers!
