Thoughts In A Ski Lodge

Here's the thing: if I have to have an apparatus strapped to my feet (besides shoes) odds are I'm going to be abysmal at it.

What is "it?" Small list:
  • ice skating
  • snow boarding
  • rollerblading
  • rollerskating
  • skateboarding
Etc., etc.

So on this youth trip I am sitting in the ski lodge. This isn't a friendly "moose head above the fireplace" ski lodge. This is like, mall food court ski lodge.

But there's wireless here so that boosts my happy points by about 10.

What I should be doing is my CNA homework. What I am doing, is, well, obvious.

I would just ask that you all continue to pray for us as we start this new venture into youth ministry. We don't want to have a job just to have a job. It's no excuse to say that the economy is bad and we had to take what we could get. We know this is where the Lord has placed us and we are so excited about the opportunity to get to know these kids. Youth. Teenagers. Whatever.

I don't know where that came from, just felt like getting it out.

And also, two of the youth have iPod Touch-es and I'm about 99% sure I'll be owning one soon. :)

Dearest Emily, whenever I get a notion about having to have that certain something that someone else has that I now want, my wonderful husband loves to remind me of the commandment about coveting my neighbor's ass. Love him but he can be frustrating at times. Love You! Laura the MIL
