    Blogger's Block
    Ahh blogger's block.......How I despise thee!

    Today we had a wedding shower/party for Dawn, one of our YWAM staff who recently got married. It was really a very nice party. It was good to see everyone again, whom I rarely see now that I don't work at the office, and there really isn't much of an office anyway. And it was GREAT to see Steener, who by the way, is nearly half her physical self these days as she looks AMAZINGLY thin...way to go steener, you are an inspiration to my post-marriage-heavy self!

    I just realized I never posted pics from our camping trip last weekend. It was really nice....a little cold at night, but a great time. Here's some pics from the first 3 hours of our trip, as the camera batteries ran out right while we were still exploring the site... dem's da breaks I guess.


    I forgot to mention... i had another JW (Jehovah's Witness) come to my door this morning. This brief encounter with "Caroline" (I think) left me feeling 'icky' all day...I just couldn't shake it. I hate how I feel powerless when they come - like all of the sudden I forget how to stand up for myself. They are so determined and so trained as to anything a person could say to them - especially a christian. I just spent the past half hour researching other people's advice as to how to respond to a JW when they start quoting scripture out of context at you. Most believe that it's not worth debating, as it will not get you anywhere. They are on a mission - they truly believe that unless they are able to go around converting people, they will not go to heaven. They do not believe we are saved by Grace.... so, they don't care if they are offending you, or making you feel uncomfortable. Maybe next time I'll just say "No Thanks" and shut the door....? What do you think?

      it's probably not the right thing to do, but i'd rather tell them i'm not feeling well or act like i'm not home just so i don't have to deal with it. i guess when it comes to that situation, i'd rather be passive than aggressive.

      Leanne... I totally hear you... funny story actually, when the doorbell rang I tried to look out the peep hole to see who it was and if I would've been able to see it was some random lady with a magazine in her hand, I don't think I would've opened the door..

      but, my peep hole is about 7 inches above my head...ugh...

    About Me: I am an American living in Ontario. I've just recently started going to school again for a BA in Human Services. I like mexican and indian food and watching tv way more than the average individual. I absolutely love talking to my parents on the phone and my brother is one of my best friends. I'm married to a great guy whose pretty much the exact opposite of me but he loves me and makes laugh and we have a lot of fun. I didn't always feel this way, but these days I'm feelin' pretty good. That's my life, welcome to chaos and order.
