Just took a look at the calendar...that can't possibly be right! How was everone's September? Y'all ready for cold weather? (((Moment of silence))) Anywho, it was a busy month for me! There was the trip to North Carolina, of course (There are more pictures, some with people, even. I'll post them eventually.) and the adventures with the garage cat (who is now cheerfully inhabiting the 6'x4'x5" space under my bed) and another car breakdown, and a move at work.

September was also a good month for getting things started. Ross and I enrolled in the 6 week "Two to One" seminar at Willow. The first class, The Designer's Plan: Discover God's Design for Marriage, kicks off this Friday. Also on the schedule; Cracking the Communication Code: Learn effective communication, The DNA of Emotional Intimacy: How to connect emotionally, Fighting Fair: Resolve conflict successfully, Purely Intimate: Understand God's perspective on sexual intimacy, and Let's Unpack! Recognize the influence of family backgrounds.

This month I also FINALLY signed up to sponsor a kid through World Vision. I've only been meaning to do that for about, oh, ten years. Her name is Leitketseng and she's from Lesotho. I can't wait to get my packet so I can take her pretty little picture to work and put it on my desk. It doesn't cost a lot to sponsor a child so it makes you wonder what kind of difference it can make, but I hope that if I combine it with a whole lot of prayer it will make a difference to Leitketseng.

Wishing everybody a happy October!!!!!

Vacation Pictures, Part I

We flew into North Carolina on Tuesday afternoon and spent the first two days of our trip at Ross's parents house in Raleigh. This is the little courtyard between the garage/guest house building and the main house. Even with the drought they've been having there, the garden was beautiful!

Labor Day Weekend

Hi everybody! Hope no one was alarmed by my long absence...No internet here at the new apartment so I have to sneak on using my neighbors wifi ;P Don't worry though, I've ordered internet service from Verizon and I should be rejoining the world of the blogging pretty soon. In the meantime I thought I'd post a couple of pictures from this weekend. On Sunday Ross and I went over to Lord's Park to visit the chickens and buffalos and I snapped some pictures on my camera (not of the buffalo and chickens, unfortunately.)

On Monday Mom and Dad took us over to the riverboat and showed us around. The sight of the Wheel of Fortune machine got Ross's heart pounding, but we managed to get him out of there before he could get into any trouble. We also spent some time this weekend trying to get into Heroes. Visually it is very cool, but the writing doesn't measure up to our current favorites, Battlestar Galactica and Felicity.

In other news, now that I've got insurance I went to the doctor about my cough. She put me on Advair, but the bronchitus was so bad that even two and a half weeks later I'm still wheezing. It's wearing me out, but next week Ross and I are going on vacation to his parent's lake house in NC and there should be plenty of time for R&R. I'll be sure to take pics and update you all on the trip when I get back!
