Oh man! The only posts I've done since July have been book reviews?!?! Wow. Well, here's a quick update before I head to bed. (haha, I'm a poet and didn't know it! ....sorry for the corniness.)
Well, August was a super busy crazy month! It started off with VBS and a broken toe! On the Sunday before VBS, right before church started, I dropped an 8'x4' sheet of wood straight down on my big toe. It hurt SOOOO BAD!! It swelled up and turned purple immediately. (this picture was a few days after). That afternoon was the first wedding in the crazy wedding cycle and I had to wear flip flops because the toe hurt so much. VBS was amazing! Our best year yet in every way. Decorations were great, kids were well behaved, helpers were fabulous, and the messages were amazing. We talked about how all life is special and has a purpose. We addressed Big Topics, like evolution, teasing and abortion (age-appropriately). And we had a few children pray "The Prayer" for the first time! Hallelujah!There were a few youth group trips that were fun (Six Flags, the beach and, my favorite, the river!) mixed in with the other weddings. I was in one of the weddings, for my friend Jenna. Plus, I made her cake! My first wedding cake! Woohoo! It came out great, if I do say so myself ;) It was lemon with raspberry filling (my first-ever filling cake!) and 4 layers high. There were a few issues that I had putting it together and whatnot, but the final product was perfect! (Although Blogger seems to be having some issues uploading pics....but I kinda like this effect! lol) After the last wedding of the month, I got sick. Like really sick, right after the wedding. I was fine at the reception and by the time I got home I had a headache, a sore throat, chills, fatigue, I was dizzy...I was a mess. And so, long story short, almost 6 weeks later, I'm still sick, just saw my third doctor and I'm on my third course of antibiotics. Hopefully this one works, otherwise its most likely a random, no-name, mono-like virus that just needs to run its course. So, yeah. Really praying this one works!
This past month has been spent mostly laying on the couch, but I did force myself up for a few fun things. Pirate karaoke, Museum of Science (shirt above), and Apple Picking!!! I even tried recreating a picture from when I was three. Sadly, I'm no longer able to sit on the pumpkins.
Now, I'm working the next 5 days (although I'll probably call out tomorrow if I'm still feeling this crappy), have an all-day IV certification class day after that, and then....I'm going to California!!! (Another reason I'm REALLY hoping this med works!) Now, its not all for fun. I'm actually taking myself out there for the Global Forum on Human Trafficking. Fun subject, huh? Its something I'm really interested in, something that God seems to be putting in my path no matter which way I turn, so I'm taking this step to see whats happening and where I could/should be involved. I'm really excited. And part of me is wondering if this whole illness thing is satan's way of trying to stop me from attending this conference. hmm. Super. Duper. Excited!! I can't wait! I'll try to get back to blogging more frequently. I just have been too sick and tired this month! But, don't worry, because its almost November, which means NaBloWriMo! Always a good jump start to blogging :)
If you just read all this, aww thanks! And hmmm, slightly stalkerish. Hahaha! Good Night Creeper <3>
