Wow, I suck at blogging...

...but, every now and then I feel like rambling, and then I get this thought that I shouldn't bother because I haven't been keeping up with it, and I still haven't quite figured out what it's for. Is it for me to flaunt what I do and think? Or for other people to be involved in my life from a distance? And who's to say they care? I don't know, it's bizarre. But I'll do it anyway :P

I have thoroughly enjoyed this week. I'm kind of glad that the heavy house stuff let up a bit. Once we started putting the finishes on the floor, we couldn't walk on it for 24 hours after each finish, and 4 finishes x 24 hours each + working = not a lot of time spent on house. But it's been a far more relaxing week, and fun to see the floor progress. Today I can actually start walking on it with socks, so I'm thinking I may venture into the insane front bedroom that holds everything we own and try to dig out some of the kitchen stuff so we can start functioning normally in there. I can't wait to be living in one place. It's been great to have my parent-in-laws house to stay at, but sleeping in one place and working in another has been a little hectic, transporting the dog back and forth, and having to leave from one place and realizing that all of my shower stuff and make-up is at a different will be very nice to be settled.

I'm a little overwhelmed at the prospect of school starting, even though I'm totally looking forward to the school part. I'm not sure how things will work out with James and I commuting in totally different directions with only one car...or if I'll have a job that will work out with my school schedule...or if I'll be able to balance school and handling a house that is under construction and just generally needs more maintenance because, well, it's a house. And then I think about the basic things that should just be part of my day like spending time with God and walking the dog and reading the newspaper and I'm not sure if I'll be able to do it cram them into the commuting, working, studenting life. Oh well! Just have to wait and see!

In other news, James and I are loving the church we've started going to in our neighborhood. It's funny that after a year and a half of church hunting in KW we found nothing, and in Hamilton, the first church we walk into (and we CAN walk, 'cause it's only 4 blocks from our house!) was a perfect fit. Very affirming. I'm really looking forward to getting more involved, and I love that this church is so outward focused, and involved in the community. Hurrah!

So....I should go do something with my day. The fact that I need to leave this house to go shower and get ready at a different house before I do the errands that our between the two houses has been a bit of a deterrent so far...but off I go. If anyone is around today and wants to visit, I'll be at the new house! Gimme a call! :)
