Please forgive the paucity of posting lately. I was stalled before my dad died and his passing has just kind of knocked me back on my heels a bit.
Work has picked up, which is good. But I'm finding that I am stingy with my free time and jumping back into the working world isn't as easy as I thought. But the money is good so I can't complain.
MacGyver is still home on convalescent leave. His shoulder is healing nicely, as far as I can tell. He'll start physical therapy in a few weeks. In the mean time, he's trying to find things to keep himself busy which can be interesting. Currently, he's trying to repair our dead fridge which has led him to an instructional video on YouTube given by a guy in India about repairing refrigerator compressors.
MacGyver has outsourced himself to India. Lovely.
Went camping with a bunch of the teens from church. I like camping (definitely my father's daughter on this one. Mom doesn't do activities that don't have running water and indoor plumbing.) and we had a blast. Literally. I think I lost a few freckles from all of the blowing sand (we camped at the beach). But it was a blast, nonetheless.
The FRG is coming along pretty well. Several spouses have stepped up to get involved which has been a huge blessing. My co-leader (yay!) has more ideas than there are minutes in the day and is an excellent salesperson, solicitor, and volunteer-getter. I'm just the admin. Which is just fine with me.
I've stepped up to take on the Military Ministry at our church and we kick that off here soon. I'm hoping to do just half as well as the woman that started this ministry and I'm excited to be doing this BEFORE my husband deploys again next year.
And, in case I didn't have enough to do with my free time (all 13 seconds of it!) I've also agreed to head up the Christmas play. Whee!
Is it New Year's yet?!?
Seriously. I'm tapped. I'm trying to cut a few things out - the side job, gymnastics for the kids, etc. but I still feeling like I'm treading water in combat boots. I'm sure part of this is the fallout from dad dying? I don't know. Again, I apologize for the lack of posting. I'm stalled.
