I've been informed I've not really blogged since Sunday....wow, some sort of record. ::snort::
Seriously, this has been a rough week. I've found myself off kilter. I'm tired of living in TLF and am ready to be able to truly make a home in Misawa. I've missed not having a PWOC kick off or Bible study to attend. I'm tired of trying to guess at what buttons to click on the computer when it's all in Japanese...WHY is it doing this again???? I've been struggling a lot this week with - well not HOMEsickness because this IS home...but CHILDsickness. I'm not the only one. Others here have mentioned at strange times missing one or the other of our four who "didn't want to come with us to Japan." ::snort:: Several of the "large" families moved out this week...and so the TLF seems emptier.
In all this I HAVE chosen to find the silver lining...but it's taken most my effort this week to live and school with a Christ like attitude...there's been little effort left to blog about it. Too real?
Honestly, it IS nice to run out of TLF in the morning for an adventure and return to freshly made beds, clean towels, and empty garbage cans. It IS nice to be on base and able to quickly make it to meetings. It IS nice to have time to really focus on establishing a school/fall routine before diving into a PWOC routine. It will be WONDERFUL to have a new chapel for studies, children's minister et al. I AM thrilled that our four older children are all serving the Lord with whole hearts. I AM thrilled that they are following His leading - even if that means we are separated.
However, it's time to blog....because it's gotten so bad my FAMILY has loaded photos to the computer, categorized the ones to publish on the blog, suggested I go blog now....because THEY like having a record of what we are doing....so here I am.
Mike's at work - the downside of a "4 day weekend" is that the work load doesn't disappear just because the work week was shortened. LOL The kids are playing their new love "table top football" or "finger flicking football"....I'd better ask WHAT it is....and I'm to stay down here until I catch the blog up and get photos loaded to Photobucket. I have my orders.
I love my family.
