So, this morning staff parish asked me (not so nicely as the work ask may imply) to resign my position at Shiloh. I'm terribly sad, because I loved my kids. I just couldn't work for the pastor. I guess I should have seen it coming--but life's not fair..and I know, everything works out in the end, but for now, im scared, and im sad...just thought it was best to tell everyone at once.

viruses abound.

well dudes. I got some crap on my computer that makes fighting these crazy pop-ups really not worth the energy to post, but it's been a week, so I suppose its time. to start with


Next, we visited rachel and joel for joels birthday and that was delicious fun. They will be here friday night late to celebrate the holidays.

Also, VBS is over, and apparently, while I planned for 60 I didn't ever need to because Megan confessed to me this week that they had between 25-30 last year--not 50. I averaged 40 or so, so thats great. Also, the Live Nativity was a sucess (no ice or freezing rain).

this week, the harmony ringers (my kids bells) will be playing at Northwestern middle school. It's gonna be fun, because then we get to stay for the christmas parties afterwords :) then thursday we have musical rehearsal and friday is the musical where i am doing the sermon...yay for me. i love my job when i actually get to spend time with my kids.

last friday, jen and i (thats my friend) played in the moonwalk after VBS and then went over to adams to watch poker night. it was amusing if nothing else because of all the random people who were there, including jeremiah the pretzel time guy who brings us smoothies.

Katie (our music director) got me a nativity for Christmas as kind of a joke, and it pretty much made my day. then I worked and jen and i took apart a projector trying to fix it, and while we didn't actually fix it, the problem seemed to not be so bad. i think its our ghost fred. then youth group, where the kids and scott played in the moonwalk. then scottie and i came home and i watched the wizard of oz. i fell alseep-so we didn't go see lemony snicket. but then we made a gingerbread train and watched harry potter...that was pretty tasty fun, but a little harder than we imagined.

My wonderful husband.

There are some people in the world who sometimes think my husband isn't the greatest guy. They even perhaps sometimes blame him for pain and misfortune that aren't necessarily his fault. To these people I say--SCREW YOU. you know who you are. He's kind, forgiving, and generous. He takes crap from people (including me all of the time) and is no less giving or thoughtful because of it. He aspires to the best in everyone, looks to the positive and hopes for friendships instead of lies. However, he is constantly betrayed and if I'm the bad guy for standing up for him..then I am proud to be the bad guy, because no matter what--in his heart, deep down, he never wants to hurt anyone. He tries to keep peace, and create meaningful connections between other people. I love him absolutely. Everyone knows that the past isnt this bright glowing thing we reflect on, but the reality is we love each other more not less, and are closer than ever due to my indiscretions. Yup. I love him. Totally and completely. You can't even imagine. He even cleans the house and gets me taco pop in the night. Sigh. I couldn't ask for anything more. He is by far more forgiving than I will ever be. Perhaps that's part of the reason for this post--but the real true reason is to let everyone know how much he means to me.

Today is the one month anniversary of my uncles death. Scott and I went and saw Christmas with the Kranks (I cried--but the book was better) and Oceans 12 (I didnt get it) and he made me smile. I also had a cherry frost icee from target with Jen. I'm thankful for new friends. She consoled me over icees as I relayed my sadness-its so nice to finally have a friend.

Tuesday we get to see rachel and joel. YIPEE!!! I am so happy. (PS-today is joels birthday)
Anyway, Scotties great. And yeah. Im lucky.
