sharpened pencils and ruled paper

in honor of the bullet points, numbered lists and brief excerpts
that are now how i think, here is my life in a list:

1. I finally had a couple of days at home and thought that I could update my blog (FINALLY!). However, I came down with strep throat and felt awful. Extremely awful. Like the lowest form of awful I have felt in a long time. Finally I went to the doctor and got diagnosed. Then, since I live in the middle of nowhere, I had to wait for my meds to arrive. Finally, after 3 FULL DAYS of feeling like junk, I felt more human on Thursday. Then, since I had put off any housework or homework that called my name. Then, I felt domestic, which is often how I feel after being sick, and so I made supper. Then I was a little distracted by my dinner company for the rest of the evening ....

B. I am back in school. Oh, definitely back in school if how I have spent today is any indication! Last spring I signed up for 3 classes cause after I successfully managed 2 I thought 3 would be no problem. If I could have seen the distraction that would be thrown my way this summer while signing up I might have reconsidered! Oh well. This way I will maybe finish that much sooner. 2014 here I come!

III. I am currently listening to a song on repeat on YouTube. I get that way. I can listen to the same song over and over and over. All day. Which this song is turning into. I wish I could say it was some deep and meaningful song that really impacted my soul - but its not. It has a fun beat and I like it.

* Since I have talked to you last I have been to 5 states, reached the quarter-centennial milestone in life, been in a wedding, celebrated my 3 year anniversary of being a missionary, taken lots of pictures, lost a lot of sleep, gotten lots of hugs, gotten my soul restored by being around my soul restorers, met new people, roadtripped a lot and learned a lot about myself and God. Bit by bit I hope to reveal these things to you as well!

In the meantime, know that I have been keeping up with ya'll as much as I can and look forward to stepping back into the role of being an active participant!
