bullet points

Time for another bullet-point post.

* Time seems to have sped up since getting home from Maui.

* I miss Maui.

* Work has been going really well lately.

* Got food poisoning last Saturday night. I thought I was going to die.

* I'm re-reading one of my favorite novels, "The Poisonwood Bible" by Barbara Kingsolver. So good!

* My dad had surgery on his shoulder (he tripped and fell on it when we were in Maui - poor guy) and it was successful. Now he has about 6 weeks of recovery/physical therapy. This picture was taken right before surgery. What a ham.

* Baseball season is right around the corner!! Squeeee!!

* I am planning a trip to So. Cal to see my 6 month old godson soon. His cheeks need my kisses.

* About a year and a half ago, I had two crowns put in on the bottom right side of my mouth. On Tuesday, I was chewing gum and one came right out! Ack! So I went into the dentist Wednesday to get it cemented back in. It hurt like a mother! I'm so glad that's over.

* I died laughing at trivia the other night becauseI knew the movie with this quote: "And so if the government could just get to the kitchen, rearrange some things, we could certainly party with the Haitians. And in conclusion may I please remind you it does not say R.S.V.P. on the Statue of Liberty." My team thought I was nuts. (Know which movie this is from? Leave it in the comments.)

* For two weeks we had summer weather. 75 degrees, sunny, lovely. In February! But this past week has been rainy and cloudy. It's kind of nice. And I know we need it.

* My biggest news: tonight was my first night as an adult mentor at the college/young adult group. To understand, you can read this and this. I haven't been to the group since I changed jobs 6 months ago. But Adam (the young adult pastor) and I met last week and he said if I wanted to come back, they'd love to have me. I prayed about it and realized, yes, it was time. I was ready. I missed seeing the students. It will never be the way it used to be. And it will be weird not being the leader of the group. But that is okay.

WINNER!!! haha! I was ridiculously proud that I knew the movie quote question...and very surprised that not more people at trivia knew it. That is a classic movie, people!

That was way harsh, Tai...
