Yay for playoffs...

Always a good thing when playoffs begin. And it's that much better when your #7 seeded team cleans up in game #1 in the #2 seeded teams rink! And in case you didn't watch, it was 6-1 for my Habs!

Introvert panic...

I'm an introvert. While I love people, I need my time and space to recharge my batteries. This also means that I don't really look forward to events that push me out of my shell. But on Monday I head off for a district Youth Pastor's Retreat at a camp located almost 5 hours from here.

This is my first district event since making the job change, and while I'm looking forward to seeing some people I haven't seen in 5 or 6 years, I'm also a bundle of nerves. Sometimes I wish stuff like this was easier for me.

But things get interesting when I return. My wife and I (and the kids, of course) are finally moving...again. As of right now we're staying with her folks and we are 40 minutes from the church. The rental will be a 7 minute drive. That will make life so much better!

Then her folks move back in with us (in the rental) where we'll be in tight, cozy quarters together until tea end of November when our actual house has been built. We thought it was cramped in this should see the rental!

So excited to see this was coming out. Apparently it contains acoustic versions of the "parent album".

I love it when bands do the acoustic thing and I'm greatly anticipating the arrival of this CD. But June 6 is such a long way away!

Just creepy...

This bunny should stay away from the chocolate this Easter!

Feeling postless...

I could post about my adventures of trying to mail a package of seminary assignments on Monday.

I could post about my sheer disbelief that President Logan is the criminal mastermind on 24.

I could post about the fact that my wife and I have actually joined a small group for the first time in almost 7 years.

I could post about the place we're building. (Correction: I could post about the basement we're building.)

I could post about finding a rental place that will house 6 of us until our new place is done in the fall.

I could post about my Habs making the playoffs...or at least being close to it.

I could post about my new office computer.

I could post about being busy.

But I won't. I'm postless.

You don't know jack...

Found this site of randowm Jack Bauer facts. Here are a few:

  • Jack Bauer wasn't born, he was unleashed.
  • If everyone on "24" followed Jack Bauer's instructions, it would be called "12".
  • Lets get one thing straight, the only reason you are conscious right now is because Jack Bauer does not feel like carrying you.
  • Jack Bauer once won a game of Connect 4 in 3 moves.
  • Killing Jack Bauer doesn't make him dead. It just makes him angry.

My sincere apologies...

To the three of you who regularly read this, I'm sorry. It's been far too long since an update. I'd blame it on the fact that the server crashed at church a couple of weeks ago, but I never blog from there anyway. But I will say that life has been really busy and this just got pushed to the backburner. But, in an attempt to cover the last few weeks, here it goes:
  • I went 2 for 27 in roll Up the Rim...that's pathetic.
  • My kids met Bob and Larry at a Veggie tales event...and I met them too.
  • We decided to build a basement...yup, a basement!
  • Watched "Failure to Launch" with my beautiful wife...actually enjoyed it.
  • Watched "Ice Age 2" with my kids...laughed hysterically and almost fell asleep in the same movie
  • My middle school group is about to burst at the seems...God help me!
  • My senior high group played Four On the Couch for almost an hour this week
  • 4 high school guys took me biking again...I fell twice.
  • Stinging nettles hurt arm was burning the entire night after the crash.
  • Our church Annual Meeting lasted only 65 minutes...that has to be a record!
  • My new computer gets set up tomorrow...woohoo! No more Windows 98!

Ok, so that's most everything I can remember right now. But as crazy as life has been, I must say that I'm feeling such a sense of joy and peace with where life is at. No, it isn't perfect, but I can say I haven't felt this way in a long time. That can't be normal, can it?
