BLEH.

Frank's in Vegas until the 17th, so I'm at home with Ruby until then. It's times like this I really wish I had friends here. Making new friends in a new place is probably the hardest thing I've ever had to do. It's not like there are steps to making new friends, it just happens. You meet someone, hit it off, and BAM--BFFs for life...pretty soon you're getting matching unicorn tattoos on your lower back.

This constant rain is killing me. I really thought I'd love it, but it's just such a downer. It does make you insanely grateful when the suns out though, haha.

Guess that's it for now. I'm gonna go have some Cheerios for dinner. YUM.

updaaaate

I'm well aware that I haven't posted a blog in a long time. I can't really say TOO much has gone on since my last post,
but I'll bring you up to date on the few things that have transpired...


First of all, I fractured my finger. Frank and I were moving our new tv into the house (all 160 lbs of it) and dropped
it on the tip of my right index finger. I tried to just leave it alone, I thought it was just a crushed finger..I didn't
know there was a broken bone! So after about 4 days I finally decided to go to urgent care. It's terribly inconvenient
to do any and everything with this splint on my finger. I've got to leave it on another month and a half, so I guess
I'd better suck it up and get used to it. Ugh.

Frank is doing a guest spot in a tattoo shop in Las Vegas. I've got kind of mixed emotions about this. I want him to go
because it's going to be a good move professionally, and he's already got a ton of worked booked, so that's great, but
it's going to be hard to be alone with Ruby for a week while he's gone. I know I can do it, it's just going to be
lonely!! He leaves the 10th, so he'll miss Easter with Ruby and I, but we might just celebrate early.

Ruby's saying a few new words. She says "bunny", "piggy", and "backpack". (She got "backpack" from Dora.)

I think I've finally settled into a new church here in Woodland. It's hard to make yourself keep going to church when
you don't know anyone there, and Sunday after Sunday you feel isolated in service. It's hard to make new friends, not
gonna lie. I mean, *I* know I'm awesome, but these people don't know that. Haha. I think my tattoos can scare some
people off sometimes, too. People automatically assume I'm going to eat their babies and punch them in their faces. It's
always fun to surprise them by going against the stereotype.

I watched a series on Angels, Demons, and the Holy Spirit on this church's website... MarathonChurch.org I highly
recommend it to everyone. It was CRAZY GOOD! (haha) Seriously though, it was amazing. The series is called "Supernatural".
I came across the website completely on accident, which was kind of cool.

Off the subject a bit, I just want to say that I think a lot of Christians wait for some kind of sign or miracle from
Heaven before they give. I don't just mean tithing, I mean giving to one another. We shouldn't have to be TOLD to
give, we shouldn't have to be prompted by the Spirit, or wait for light from Heaven to show us who to help...if you have
a brother or sister in Christ who needs something, and it's within your means to help, DO IT. That's who we're
supposed to be as Christians.

Proverbs 11:25 says:

"The generous will prosper;
those who refresh others will
themselves be refreshed."

I'm not saying you should give to get, but you don't have to give thinking that you're getting the short end of the
stick. Give and it shall be given, good measure, pressed down, shaken together and running over, right? I believe that
this applies to all areas of our lives. Good and bad. So watch what you're sowing!


That's pretty much it, I guess. Nothing terribly exciting, just though I should give a little update.


Yo Gabba Gabba is about on, Jack Black is the guest star. Hahaha, this should be good.


All my love to all you guys (and gals!)
Oswald Chambers said: “Consecration is not the giving over of the calling in life to God, but the separation from all other callings and the giving over of ourselves to God, letting His providence place us where He will—in business, or law, or science; in workshop, in politics, or in drudgery. We are to be there working according to the laws and principles of the Kingdom of God.”

beach trip

Well Frank and I kind of decided on a whim to pick up and go to the coast for a few days.

We stayed in Lincoln City, OR, at a resort RIGHT on the beach. It was so gorgeous. The only bad thing was the wind. Ugh, it was TERRIBLE! Also the first night we were there, it hailed and woke us up. Other than that, the weather was alright.

SO guess what?

Well i was feeding some seagulls from our 3rd floor room. I had the window open a bit, and was just kind of tossing crackers out for them to catch. Frank was sitting nearby and we were laughing about it. I said something like, "I've got them trained to do my bidding!!" Just then, a seagull took a nosedive right for my hand and BIT MY FINGER. This is not a joke. It hurt so bad!! It didn't bleed or anything. Frank thought it was hilarious and told me to go wash off the bird flu. hahaha. I'm fine, but it was scary! Those birds are insane. They'll do anything for some Cheeto crumbs.

Also, we drove by the world's shortest river. Look it up. It's called the "D" River. It's only like, 130 feet or something. Weird

All in all we had a great trip! Can't wait to go back.

TECHIE.




I just have to say that I'm so grateful for technology. Sound funny? Well, my husband and I live here in the woods in southwest Washington. We don't get cable tv, we can't get high speed internet...it's kind of sad. But I'm so grateful for the slow, slow, satellite tv and internet we get. I'm able to watch Winter Bible Seminar on tv and stream all kinds of ministers. The churches here just seem so asleep. It makes my heart sad that most of them are just going through the motions. If you can't get excited about God in church, I can only imagine what the rest of your week is like. I'm going to try this place out: www.citybiblechurch.org on Sunday. It's 35 miles each way, but a good church is worth it.

Much love to everyone.
