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!

I'll "see" you all when I get back...and you'll definitely see me!;-) We're heading out to the airport in about half an hour or less. Now's the real deal...

Instead, I've been sitting here reading more of those old posts from "Skye's World." That's my means of procrastination in preparing for this trip. I guess we have to be out the door in about sixteen hours. LOL! So much for the dress I was going to make. My energy is sapped. I need to fold laundry and then go to Wal*Mart once again...because I again forgot to get some things. I couldn't find a power cord for my camera--I guess I'll eventually order one on-line. It's too bad I couldn't get it before Hawaii, but I did get a charger (that takes at least 12 hours, unfortunately--it was that or pay more than twice as much), six batteries for that, and sixteen regular (Rayovac--plus/maximum...whatever their called) batteries. Since the camera only takes two at a time, I'm hoping that's enough. I'll just have to be careful about how I use the camera. I'll go ahead and take my other camera, too, just to fool around with, I guess. It's kind of ironic that I have a power cord for one and batteries for the other...but batteries won't work for the one with the power cord and I don't have a power cord for the other.

But back to those old posts...it's really interesting to see how people have changed and how they've remained the same. I'm reading through my own posts with great interest, since I had forgotten what I said. I think I pretty much agree with it, though, and I can also see myself--as ever--trying to take a non-controversial stance (read: be the final authority) on each subject.

Which reminds me...I've decided which presidential candidate to vote for in November. LOL! For now I'm not telling, although you can probably guess. =D Part of what helped me reach my conclusion was my SS teacher's comments when I brought up the subject in Sunday school a few weeks (maybe a month) ago. Yes, I brought it up...the whole deal of God's sovereignty, man's responsibility, issues of character/integrity, and everything. And the ultimate conclusion is that--as Scripture says--each man must be fully convinced in his own mind, for whatever is not of faith is sin.

I've actually even got the skirt of it hemmed and the ties sewn. Now for the top...which I have cut out. I came out of my room to get red thread, but I stopped at the computer...and have been here for a while now, reading stuff at "Skye's World." The posts made me miss the place and the people...and yet I know we could never go back to having things as they were. I can't helping wishing for some aspects of it, though!

And the countdown is on...well, I would have to calculate the hours, but I am leaving in the afternoon the day after tomorrow. Tomorrow, I go to the chiropractor. Wednesday, I take ibuprofen with me on the plane in case the treatment was a little too strong. I need to try to remember to ask him to do it lightly. It always feels fine during the process, but I usually take a couple of days to recover, and I don't WANT to take a couple of days to recover from the rolling bed!
