I feel like I have to come up with something “hot” or “controversial” to get the conversation going again, but I really don’t seem to have it in me right now. I am hip deep in fall planning and trying to figure out how to make a “dating” Bible study actually be worship.
We are in the middle of photos for our new Olan Mills church directory. If you haven’t been through this yet, well let me just say be ready because I think Olan Mills wants to run the world. So in order to get a free 8×10 and a free directory you have to sit and listen to this sales pitch thing. Which would be fine with me if the lady making the pitch was smooth about it. It wasn’t long before I had figured out the computer program she was using to show us the proofs and wanted to yank the mouse out of her hand. On top of that she just was slower at everything than Meredith and I; we kept jumping ahead and that confused her. Of course the funniest part was when she started reading about the $1000 picture package and Meredith and I stopped her an told her to turn that little book on down around the $200 range.
But we did get some good pictures out of it. Nathan looked very grown up and even smiled in the pictures. We have a family picture of the three of us that is too cute for words. I even got the cool canvas finish large picture to put up in our hall. Now I feel like we are a “real” family. (I also see now why people charge family members for big pictures, those things ain’t cheap!)
I guess that’s about all of the stories. Oh yeah, as of last night I had the 303 highest score on the Xbox Live Arcade version of Galaga. I am moving up the ladder. (If you want to check out my achievements I am “Gifted Fool”)
