Okay…I have put this off for far longer than I should have and I am not sure I really know why…I certainly don’t have a good excuse. I love to blog. I feel a certain amount of satisfaction from putting word to blank screen. To tying thoughts and emotions to a blank canvas and illiciting feelings from others. In saying that, I have had a hell of a time lately. I have begun several times, staring at the blank screen, feeling the call of the keyboard and accomplishing…nothing, zilch, zip, nada. Maybe it’s that it is summer; You all know my feelings about summer aka the death of creativity. Anywho…onto greener pastures. I am making amends for my badness.
On the weight front I have been doing really well…freakishly well…the olympics of well. As of today I am down 106 lbs. So I am at 267 from 373 starting weight. I had my 3 month check up with my surgeon week before last and all of my labs came back, not good but fantastic. He loved my cholesteral level so much I thought he might cry. I didn’t have the heart to tell him my cholesteral has always been really good. If he wants to gush over my cholesteral, who am I to deprive him of that joy.
On other fronts, I believe I might have found a new church, at least for awhile. I don’t have the foresight to know if it will become my church home, only time will tell. I did enjoy it immensly though and I am looking forward to returning this Sunday. I know I have not really spoken much of my spiritual journey on here but when I walked away from teaching 3 years ago, I also walked away from my church home. They were one in the same and somehow when I quit teaching, the church didn’t seem to fit either. So I have been wandering for the last few years and I have felt really adrift lately. Wanting a new spiritual home and sad that I had not found one. Please forgive the horrific grammer, I have thus displayed so far; It is the best I can do today or you will have no blog at all. Anywhooo…back to the topic at hand. I think I have found a church to stick with for awhile in the hopes that it will become a church home. Everyone was extremely welcoming and friendly. I even ran into some old friends who I had not seen in over a year. The best part however was the meal we shared after the service. I cannot tell you how much I enjoy good fellowship with other brethren of the same school of thought. I had been invited to the service by Laurie who attends with her boyfriend Jay. The three of us and one of Jays friends, Mike, went to lunch afterwards and I cannot remember enjoying myself that much in quite some time.
So there you have it. In a nutshell.
I apologize again for being a blogging delinquent and appreciate your loyalty to my salty little blog despite my obvious tomfoolery. I will try to do better.
Loving you all the way from this melting pot called Houston…Justjil
