Hey everybody! I am still alive.
We had Vacation Bible School on Saturday and it went well. I might even be willing to do it again. It was my first time not just to help organize, but even to volunteer for a VBS since attending one as a little guy. I am tired but good. Boy, I am tired!
My crazy/busy summer is hopefully slowing down. I can get back to the normal crazy/busy weekly grind of being a minster/pastor/secretary/etc. I can’t believe the busiest part of my summer is over. I can’t wait for the cool weather of Fall and big snows of Winter.
The sad news is my wife and kids are leaving for a two week road trip with grandmommy to visit family in 3-4 states. I will use the time to rest and hopefully plan ahead, maybe even to blog some.
I do plan to spend a day at the Baseball Hall of Fame in Cooperstown, NY. I am a member (never used PEDs) and get free admission for a year. I hope to see the GI Joe movie even though I am preparing to be letdown on many levels.
I recently got a new computer. The old, cheap one was slowly dying so it’s nice to be able to do stuff without waiting. I really like the flat screen monitor. I have google gadgets on the right with weather, to-do list, and various headlines. I can also leave tweetdeck open, and the remaining part of the screen is still about as big as my old HUGE monitor that was a hand-me-down from at least 5 years ago, maybe 9.
It’s just another Emachine but I love it. There are two weird surprises: the first being that there is no regular printer port, only USBs. So I had to buy an adapter to connect my printer to the CPU. And I ordered it online b/c I couldn’t find one at the Shack (saw lots of phones, but no Trinity) or Staples. Unfortunately, I ordered it from Hong Kong. So now, I must decide if I can wait for it to arrive. Shipping was free. Did I get scammed?
Secondly, the CD/DVD drive is vertical…the discs kinda hang there but it works, so…SURE!
I want to spend lots of time reading. I am planning a sermon series on the Minor Prophets. I hope to take advantage of the quiet and spend more time with God, figuring out myself and my ministry.
The one major decision I haven’t made is about food: Do I eat super light and healthy (cooking isn’t an issue, I enjoy it and will survive that without the wife) or do I live it up and eat what I want for a week or so??
