Monday Musings

I've started and deleted about 5 posts this last week. I have things to say, just not so sure how public some of those things should be...sometimes it's better that words just stay in my head. But I've been thinking about a lot of things some good, some bad, some just thoughts. Because I like bullet points on blogger a lot--though I would much prefer arrows--I'll list some of my thoughts for you to ponder and comment on or just read and wonder what in the world is happening in my brain!
  • Saturday I went to the SF Food Bank with some youth, college students and friends. I have a new found appreciation for people who work on assembly lines doing repetitive motion. We did manage to bag about 9000 bags of popcorn kernels though...with a little help from the other groups that were there at the same time!
  • Why is it so hard to take time to do a necessary thing? Like stopping for 15 minutes to have the nail in one of my car's tires taken out so that I don't have to keep refilling the tire.
  • I don't get drugs. Seriously, I don't understand the fascination with drugs or alcohol. And I'm really, really tired of watching young adults mess up their lives...really, really tired.
  • Where are all the good websites for Christian ministry jobs?
  • Note to self, when you attend a bunch of weddings in a span of say, oh, 3 or 4 years, be prepared for a bunch of babies to appear around the same time. May, June, July & August are gonna be fun!
  • When one youth group night goes well, why is it that the next youth group night stinks?
  • Did you know that the Bible is an actual historical document. I mean, the things in there actually happened in history? Crazy! AND to really understand the things that Jesus said and did, it's pretty darn helpful to understand what was happening in the culture at the time. INSANE! Why did it take me so long to take this class?! Ok, so just to clarify, I understood all that stuff before but it never really filtered into my conscious brain. I know that it all happened but for some reason I didn't get it as much as I'm getting it now. Thanks Fuller! Thanks MMT!
  • I hate tests.
  • I can't study at home if my housemates are there. Too distracting. I can't study at the Coffee shops cuz I get distracted. G.G. came home yesterday, can't study at her house anymore. (BTW, G.G. sorry about the salad left in your fridge!) Libraries are closed on Friday (my study day) and if I try and study at work, well, see I'm supposed to be working right now and I'm distracted by this thing called the internet so, yeah, that's not gonna work. Suggestions?
  • NCIS marathons do not help the whole studying thing happen.
  • I'm going back to Pearlington. In fact Yo Momma & Papa Bear and 5 other fabulously wonderful people are going as well. April 12th. That reminds me I need to file my taxes so I can pay for this trip!
  • Frogs love rain. People with neighbors who have hot tubs who like to come out and sit in their hot tubs late at night talking really loudly like rain too.

There's more but that whole work thing is getting in the way. Happy Monday!

Hey Britt, Want to use my house on Fridays, I can arrange to be away.
Or you can have one end and I will quietly take the other.
Give it a thought/try.
