|I couldn't figure out what photo to use, so I went random.|
The plan is also to try to write several posts to schedule so that a huge gap of regular posting like this won't happen again. I won't lie though, and say that I'm back to normal in my posting schedule. I may be... the truth is I don't know.
I am leaving the country in roughly 3 weeks, and really beginning my journey the weekend after Thanksgiving. I am not packed. But as I just bought a suitcase last night there is a reason. I have been making lists and decisions for months... but now it is time to pack two suitcases and a carry on. That's all I'm taking... except some boxes of books I don't have money to ship yet, but I'll be boxing up and sending for as we can.
Oh! As for my family affected by Sandy, everyone is okay. And so far as I know their homes only suffered mild damage (broken windows, fallen trees that didn't hit the house, my grandparent's dock is gone etc.) One aunt and uncle did lose their restaurant though, so please pray for them. Also, so far as I know, most of my relatives are still without power.
Aside from packing, I am also spending time with family and friends. Yesterday was a Tabitha day. Lydia day is Saturday. I don't know about other times yet... So yes, I am not sure how much blogging time I have. I also am getting vaccinations and... yeah.
All that being said, I am a writer and I have found that when things are the craziest is often when I'm driven to write... I've actually written a couple blog posts... the thing is I've been primarily internet-less so it's been long hand in random places. I haven't been typing as much.
No, the real issue is I only have internet occassionally right now because the way we have it at home is we have Mom's cell phone act as a wifi hotspot... but if she makes a phone call or answers it while it's doing that, the internet cuts off. Plus if Mom is say, at the grocery store, she isn't going to leave her cell, so I am internet-less. And worse, Mom's battery is acting up so you can only really use it for internet if it is plugged in, and Mom doesn't want to leave it plugged in all day, so typically I can only get it for any length of time at night when she'll plug it in and leave the internet on all night. But I've been falling asleep before Mom most nights, what with the crazyness of my life... and the fact I'm recovering from a cold.
Right now I am at the Science Center in Spartanburg. When I finish this post I am heading probably to the library. I have also texted several friends to see if we may meet up later. I went to the polling place with my sister earlier, then we came straight here.
So yup, that's what's going on. And yes, sweet blog, I will definitely keep you informed. I hope everyone is having a good day, and that my fellow Americans have an okay election day. Remember whoever wins, the government is on God's shoulders. And if you are tempted to think of the candidate you don't want as the devil, remember Kim Jung Il or whoever is in charge in Burma/Myanmar and realize that regardless of the outcome we Americans have been very blessed. Keep that in mind, even if "the other guy" wins.
