Crazy Week

Alas, I am still unable to post pictures. It's almost like not being able to breathe. Oh well. I'll have to get that taken care of soon, because we're in the middle of another CYT play! This has actually been kind of a crazy week. My mom has been out of town taking care of my grandparents since Tuesday. My grandmother has been having heart problems (she spent a few days in the hospital) and their hot water has been leaking for goodness knows how long, leaving their house a moldy disaster that was making them sick. Mom should be coming home tomorrow, but there has been a lot for her to do. Meanwhile, I've been taking care of lunch and dinner, keeping up with my schoolwork, and going to play rehearsals nearly every night! Needless to say, it's been sort of a crazy week. Zach's CYT class will be performing Around the World in 80 Days next Thursday, Friday, and Saturday, and (like the last two years) I'll be stage directing. This year the other stage director is my friend Karyn. I really don't know what I would do without her! This is by far the most involved play I have helped with, between costume changes, entrances, exits, and so many other things! It's hard to think about anything else. We have so many wonderful people who help; it's such a great example of the body of Christ in action. Thinking about what must happen over the next week is kind of intimidating, but I know beyond a shadow of a doubt that God has called me here, and He always gives us strength for what He calls us to do! It will be an adventure.

So, I haven't posted since last year. Considering that it's January 3rd, that's doesn't sound so bad, but I also haven't posted since late October. My computer hasn't been letting me post pictures, and I just haven't felt like messing with it. Couldn't I have written a post without pictures? Of course, but is that fun? Not so much, but I still can't get it to work and I figure that this is better than nothing. If you're reading this, hopefully it means that you haven't given up on me. Thank you very much. I hope you all had a good Christmas! Mine was wonderful; possibly the best I've ever had! We stayed at home for the first time since 2003, and my grandparents came for a week. It was great! We played lots of games, and just enjoyed being together. I've had such a wonderful, peaceful, 2nd half of December, and now I'm preparing to dive into crazy January! I will be working on a new CYT play very soon, and I'm starting school again tomorrow. It's going to be an intense month, but I'm looking forward to it!
