Much has been accomplished over the past week. Notably:
I received a call from the library last Saturday morning informing me that Harry Potter and the Deadly Hallows was mine to pick up from my local branch. Since the announcement of the 7th and final book, my name has been on the queue. Prior to Saturday morning I didn’t realize how high I was in the queue until I received the exciting phone call. Most of my free time throughout this past week has been spent with Harry, Ron, Hermione, and the gang. I’m anxious to see how it turns out…
Tuesday I went to see Hairspray and upon the purchase of my ticket received a fan with a freakishly large picture of Amanda Bynes’ head…well, her character Penny’s head .
See? Freakishly large. Despite being weirded out by the Amanda/Penny fan, I loved the movie! Definitely the feel good musical of the summer.
This week has been VBS at church. It’s been tiring to help with the little ones in the nursery, but yet so rewarding to have them come to me and ask for a snack or feel their little hand in mine as we walk down the stairs to go to the fellowship hall. This week has also brought an important visit from my parents as we have begun the process of updating and making repairs to some things around our house, doing major cleaning, sorting through clothes, books, and various other stuff (for lack of a better word), and making the decision to put our house up for sale. Now comes the hard part of disengaging myself from the house I’ve called home for the past 16 years and deciding what I want to take with me to my new apartment, what mom and dad want to take to their retirement house, and what we can leave in the current house as a part of the selling agreement. As much as there is to process, I remain rooted in the knowledge that God is control of all that is happening and am doing my best to follow His leading into new places in the weeks to come.
