Things have been busy around here, thus my utter absence. We've been reading more (I can't get over V!), playing more games, playing outside (can you believe it's been in the 80s here the past week?! This is insane for January - I shudder to wonder what it might mean for hurricane season!), and haven't been home a whole lot other than that.
.
I start, today, my hands on training at the pregnancy center. I will learn the office procedures first and continue with my reading requirements and probably start role-playing with some of the workers. I think in two weeks, I will probably start sitting in on client intake meetings. I am excited to be doing this, though, the initial part of the training has shown me that this really is going to be a brutal experience. I just hope and pray that I am able to touch a few hearts and that I will be used where God wants me.

MOMS group at church is really taking off! I love it - the comraderie, the fellowship, the learning! We had an adults-only social Saturday and it was great! I got to meet the husbands of some of the women I've gotten to know and it was interesting to see the dynamics. It was also nice to see the women in a social setting, rather than in a group learning environment. It makes it pretty clear who I really want to get to know (most of them, surprisingly!). We've been so blessed to have this group - and I know it will be one of the things that I miss the most when we move away from here.

A gave his notice at the other church. Since it is about 130 miles round trip every other Sunday for him to play drums - and he doesn't get any positive feedback from the rest of the band (or even the lead), we felt maybe God wasn't really calling A to serve there. It makes far more sense for him to get involved at our church here, though if it is musically, it probably won't be near as fun and challenging as playing with a really talented group. But that's okay. He starts at our church this weekend and will be helping out with the youth group. One of my new friends is the youth minister and she is excited to have a young man helping out. He is incredible with the teens, so I know she'll be even more excited once she sees him in action. They're also talking about forming a group (just him and a guy on guitar) to do the music at our church for the youth mass. That will be a lot of fun and I know the rest of the people who go to that mass will love the change!

I'm still working on my fitness and health, I started working out last week and the girls and I will start walking around our loop (1.4 miles) every day. I'm looking forward to working up to at least twice/day. I haven't lost the last week, due to some health issues, but I seem to be still on track. I did, however, lose almost 2 pounds over this past weekend, so we're not worried about the stall through last week. I like the idea of the girls and me walking/riding bikes together, because I have a feeling they need the encouragement to get moving a bit more as well.
.
Next week, we are headed out of town for a couple days. A signed up the girls to be in a promotional video/commercial for a popular fun place and we'll probably make it into a mini-vacation - just a weekend starting Monday. :)

Anyway, I have to get going. Must. have. a. shower.

I'll try to write a more interesting post later. Until then, God Bless you!
