Fall Festival

This past weekend was “fall break” for students at G. It was also “fall festival” at O. So I spent Friday night, all of Saturday and Sunday, and Monday through lunch working. It was exhausting but good. I saw Marjie and Young Samuel, Tiffanie, Chief and Sunshine, Mama Janice and the Captain, Bill and Sue, Bob and Judy, Roger and Mary Ann, the Lindermans, and a lot of other people. It was great to be home and great to be exhausted. 

I love spending time with Marjie and Sam. On Friday night, Sam was sitting on the counter at their house while Marjorie was on the phone and he was being silly. When I told him that I would take him and throw him in the lake he told me I couldn’t lift him so I did. We wrestled and laughed and had tons of fun. We had a lot of fun. On Saturday afternoon I went over to the house to hang out for a bit. Marjie and I had “3 o’clock” at 2 something and when she got her second cup, I teased her and took it away. Her reaction? “Leave me alone, let me get high! Let me be!” (coffee, by the way). It was funny and she’ll never live it down. 

Sunshine was hilarious this weekend. Especially when she had to stand on a stool to slice turkey on the slicer. I got to melt cheese for the brocolli. Chief was his usual self. It was good to be home. 

I’m going back again Friday night for the Ladies’ Retreat. I’m sure I’ll be exhausted by the end of the weekend. Just to warn you all. But it will be good and I will hopefully get to see Marjie for a bit during the day. 

Anyway, I’m back in G. and I am tired. I had a paper due today that I didn’t really get done until 10 this morning. Suffice it to say… the latest I will get to sleep for at least another week and a half might be… 7:15… if I push it haha. But it will be ok. 

Anyway, I’ve got to get some work done then small group and more homework. I’ll write more after the weekend.



“As you know, I am a petal borne aloft on the autumn wind. It should say that in my file.” I like my alone time but get lonely frequently. I am dependable and trustworthy, a hard worker, and if I say I will do something, it will most likely be done. I am daily learning who I am and how I relate to people. I sing almost constantly. (Some would say I’m crazy or weird… I’m ok with that.) I am a singing, dancing photographer/writer/web-editor/proofreader who wants to change the world. I am on the cusp of a quarter-life crisis, navigating the ups and downs of becoming a grown-up. I find that as a twenty-nine year old woman, many of my friends seem to have the life I want: jobs in fields they love (with decent salaries), boyfriends, fiances, children, etc., while I seem somewhat stuck in a mediocre job with little time for a social life. I am a Christian trying to apply my very real faith to my equally real life. I have perfectionist tendencies which I blame on being an oldest child. I think that about covers it so... yeah.
