Howdy…I am tired. This past weekend was kinda low key with the whole hurricane deal. I prayed all weekend for those in the panhandle and it looks like people’s prayers paid off. Yes, I know there is still damage and disaster work for the Army to do…but noone was seriously injured or killed. That’s the answered prayer! I just can’t imagine having to deal with death when it happens in some kind of natural disaster…praying for those in Haiti and Cuba!
I went over to my parent’s (my hurrican evacuation route…lol) on Saturday afternoon. We just watched movies and the news for weather updates. Sunday we slept in a bit and then went to my Aunt Gloria’s 70th Surprise Bday Party. It was quite fun…she was totally surprised, with 35 of her closest relatives (minus my brother and his fam)…and an old “flame”. I would love to have the energy and life that Aunt Gloria has at 70…we shall see.
Last night, my parents and I went over my budget as I venture towards the inevitable overloading of pay-outs to move into the house. Its absolutely ridiculous all the extra little costs just to relocate. It’s absolutely ridiculous that I am paying out more right now than I receive! Its sad (but I praise God) that I have to ask for help from Mom and Dad. I’m praying for a gradual and successful transition. I’m praying for discipline. It’ll be fun to live with Annie and Heather! Good times…
I look at my life as it stands today and basically all that’s “planned out” for me is one more year. LOL…the reason I say only a year is because SAMS positions basically come in 2-year increments. July 31, 2006, as of right now, is my last day of a planned life. What comes after that? I have no clue! I do know that God is behind this warehouse deal and so I will probably be working at this whole thing for years to come….but that’s all out of my hands. Its kinda nice to not be in that college-mode, where you’re thinking I still have three more years of classes, then I have to find a job…I want to get married, have kids….etc etc. I’m happy living in the here and now just trying to figure what God wants to me to with my life from 3:20 this afternoon until I fall asleep tonight.

Peace for now…
