Week 23 - June 28, 2006
~ Eyes Welling and Feet Swelling
Boy, oh boy! What an emotional two weeks I have had. I donít think that there is anything that I havenít cried over. Now donít get me wrong, some of my cries have been understandable, like the death of my precious grandmother and of my little dog Maggie. But on the other hand there have been instances that I just donít understand. For instance, my church was celebrating its 60th Anniversary on Sunday, and they prepared a slide show (nothing emotional, I assure you) depicting the growth of the church over the last 60 years. Tears just started running down my face. And then, after the slide show, they presented our preacher with a ďground breakingĒ shovel for when they start construction on our new building. I thought that I was going to have to leave the auditorium because I was crying so hard. Over a shovel for peteís sake. And donít let me start listening to gospel music because the flood gates open every time. I think that Brooke is now worried about me going to her guitar lessons with her because I get so proud of her that I canít hold back the tears. Put it on the record that if I donít stop with these sporadic tears soon, my family is going to have me committed.
Now, as far as my feet are concerned, does the name Fred Flinstone ring a bell? I mean, in the morning, my feet start out looking like regular feet, but by 2 p.m. they look like they should be powering a stone wheeled car and shouting ďYabba-Dabba-Doo!Ē Flip Flops are becoming my best friends.
I have been trying to post some pictures of our Disney vacation with my journal, but I canít figure out the new camera that we bought. I guess Iíll just have to keep playing with it. Anyway, I had my dad take an updated picture of me at work, because he knows how to work his camera. I am not too thrilled with the picture but here it is anyway.
