wow, what a crazy weekend! it was fun and it was hard and it was emotional. i feel drained and not terribly prepared for the busy week that is ahead of me. i have so much to think about — more than my homework will allow time for — and am already counting the days until the end of A quad. yes, that’s right, only six more tuesday-thursday classes left, and eight more monday-wednesday-friday classes! yesss!
i love our lbc college group and jill and lisa and cindy and all of the people who take care of us so well. lisa had the entire group over to her house for a feast of a sunday lunch. she is incredible beyond words, and a natural mother/caretaker. i love getting her big hugs. and it was so good and painful to remember bruce and introduce the freshmen to the man who would have been their college pastor. i didn’t -couldn’t- share any of my memories, but they are plentiful. the Holy Light, the striped trick-or-treating shirt, the deodorant brand fetish, the smurfs, the days when he was the most eligible bachelor in the church and mrs. lauffer used to tease a certain someone about that all the time (haha, you know who you are), coming back from summer sophomore year and learning he’d gotten engaged, then meeting a fabulous and hilarious woman named jill. his particularity for the band’s worship songs and his deep desire that the band should give thought to the words they were singing. it’s been a hard weekend for me.
and holy cow! i am nervous about the half marathon! it’s THIS SUNDAY! i just went on a short run, and i am having problems. i need a kines major to help me out. this is going to be a patheticly ignorant description, but…you know the muscle that runs up from your ankle, on the inside of the leg? mine are SO tight and feel very uncomfortable when i’m running and i can’t figure out how to stretch them. can anyone clue me in?
