I'm sure you want to see my pictures from yesterday.

After going through the trouble of resizing pictures, I uploaded them on Photobucket and Facebook...but then I decided that Flickr might be a good option to try, so go here and see if I've linked this properly. If this works, I think my picture posts might be mostly a thing of the past! I'll still mention that there are pictures, but I guess I'll avoid putting them in posts unless I actually want to illustrate something I want to say.

Oh, had asked about a picture of me without makeup, so here's one:

I'm actually just posting these for a girl on Xanga, so you can click or not depending on if you want to see about a dozen small pictures of people you (mostly) don't know...

I spent some of this afternoon experimenting with my camera, which led to this picture.

The Wedding People

Now we'll see what happens with bandwidth, especially once I e-mail this link to people...=|

I'm just about ready to give up on LJ. There's no way I can even keep up with skimming the posts now. Maybe it's just jet lag, though. I hope so because I surely don't want to lose this part of my life. I did want to share with you all the encouraging things that are happening right now, but I have been spending hours on the computer working to get wedding photos cropped and ready to upload. Now I just have to find the site for it...since I'm familiar with Yahoo, I'm pretty sure that's what I'll end up using, even though bandwidth is probably going to be an issue. I have about three hundred pictures to post (maybe it's less than that, but it will be double whatever it already was because of thumbnail images, which should decrease the bandwidth problem somewhat because people probably won't be inclined to look at every picture). My new digital camera worked out beautifully. I've made the images much smaller for on-line viewing, but the people I saw will get the photos on CD sometime in the hopefully not-too-distant future.

Meanwhile, I will begin working mornings AND afternoons next week. Through the Lord's blessing in an amazing (to me) sequence of events, I now have a work-study position for fifteen hours per week. So I'm good to go for next semester, I guess. My finances are pretty well in shape, amazingly. The Lord really does provide...but never really early, apparently...just exactly when I need it. I guess it's just as well that I didn't have more money to spend in Hawaii!

I think I might have already said this, but I had a wonderful trip. I met some awesome people and renewed relationships with other wonderful people...and now I kind of miss them. The joy of fellowship with other believers is incredible. I even miss some of the guys I met!=D I got to see my dad's family, which was also wonderful...much better than I expected.

My 7 y.o. brother has been throwing up this evening, so I'm hoping that we don't all come down with a virus this weekend. Labor Day is Monday, and I want to enjoy my little break to finish recovering from my trip to Hawaii!

I hope to say more later, but I really want to work on those pictures. I'm really sorry that I'm not keeping up with all your entries. My body is physically drained due to fatigue...because of my own foolishness, I haven't had that much sleep in the last few days. Oh, well.

I'm back!

Back to the world of air conditioning, where the people can wear shoes and socks all day long without anyone commenting on it. LOL! I'm back to the world of work, school, and home responsibilities. I'm glad to be back, but I'm also glad I went...I got to see a really cool wedding, meet some really cool people, and come to some really cool resolutions. I think I'm going to start a proactive method of limiting my LJ time (by scheduling more interaction with local people...if their schedules allow for it). At the same time, I'm going to have to look for edifying activities, so that could be a little difficult, but we shall see.

The wedding was fantastic. After my dad picks up a new USB card this afternoon, I should be able to download and upload pictures for everyone to see...out of the hundreds or so that my mom and I took. I tried to keep a daily journal while we were gone, but I might end up just going by pictures or saying very little since tomorrow is when I get back to work. Tonight is Children's Choir, where I will be playing music I have only seen once before. The place we stayed in Hawaii did not have a piano...I nearly went crazy. They did have several guitars, but I didn't borrow any of them because I'm really not that great on the guitar...and I don't love it the same way. Anyway, it is time for me to practice music tonight, but I did want to make the announcement that I'm back. I hope you all have stayed well. If any of you (besides Ruth) have announced pregnancies, engagements, or weddings in the past week and I don't comment on it, please let me know what's happening. Thanks!

Here are pictures of me from 1982-2003.=)

No work today...I went in, but my boss did not need me, so I came home and helped get newsletters folded and mailed. I went to the chiropractor this afternoon, and then did some shopping at a dollar store. I slept before going, and I slept this evening...after finishing Mother, by Kathleen Norris, and Buried Alive, by Jack Cuozzo. Now I need to wrap gifts.

I don't know if I am going to work tomorrow, but I got over twenty hours in last week, so I'm pretty good for these two weeks anyway. I also just found out that I actually won't be paying anything for car insurance until about March because my rate reduction was so great from me turning twenty-one. And then I'll eventually get a good student discount, although it won't be quite so significant. Anyway, that is a big blessing for me...because I thought that I was going to be paying for books, the remainder of my tuition, and car insurance all at the same time. I'm now much closer to having enough money to go to Hawaii, which I'm pretty firmly planning to do. I need to call my engaged friend sometime to talk to her about it all. I think her mom is already working on bridesmaids' dresses.=)

I actually could probably say a lot, but I have been so tired that I have been spending nearly all of my spare moments sleeping. I have also worked on making fudge. My first try turned out rock hard, but yesterday's batch was about as perfect as it gets, so I'm happy. My brother is doing some shameful editing to our church pictures right now...he lightened them and reduced redeye for reprinting recently (a photographer at church does pictures of the families periodically for the church bulletin board), and so now we've got all these pictures on our hard drive for his amusement.

I'm having a hard time keeping up with LiveJournal right now and I don't know if/when that will change, but I do skim entries. I'm not going to remove anybody because I do like to know what's happening in people's lives. =)

I should go now that it's getting so late. I talked to my brothers about shopping at about 4:30 AM, so getting to bed soon might be helpful.
