I just got back from almost a week with some of my family. My parents and I met at my brother and sister-in-law's house, after spending a couple days at an indoor waterpark resort. It was fun to spend time with family, and it was GREAT to get to hang out with my nieces who are almost 5 and 3 years old. They are both amazingly cute and smart. Of course, I might be a bit biased.
But now I'm home, getting ready to go back to work tomorrow and put my nose to the grindstone. For who knows how long before I get another chance for a break. But, thankfully, this time with my family has given me a chance to decompress a bit, relax, play with play-doh and read a lot of stories.
So, now, as to that previous post... Yeah. There is something going on where a certain person who, when I first started the call, made a great effort to make me feel welcome and is now unhappy about some things. And letting people know. But I realize I cannot make everyone happy all of the time, and in a church there will always be someone who isn't pleased about something. While it's unfortunate, it's just the way things go. I just need to do what I can to deal with the situation.
Also, my house is cold. When I left the homestead to drive to neighborhing state to play at aforementioned waterpark resort, it was cold outside. So I packed only long pants, some t-shirts and a couple sweatshirts/sweaters. When I was at my brother's house, I ended up having to borrow a pair of shorts so that I didn't roast when we went to the park to play. The weather there was sunny and warm. Now I'm back home and it's cold. I should really move somewhere warmer...
