I’m asking anyone who reads this to pray for Nate and I this week.

We need some wisdom.

Sweet N Low

August 27, 2007

I’ve heard that Nutrisweet can mess with your memory and brain. I don’t know if this is just the sugar companies creating rumors to try to sell more of the real stuff. But I can say that I forget a bunch of stuff. Maybe its because I will be 31 tomorrow. 31 is old. Why do I feel like I should be 18 still?

Anway, I bring all of this up because I ran my first shift at starbucks today. I ran the shifts everyday for 3 years….but that was a few years ago and two kids later. So my brain has thrown out any of the information it wasn’t using. Today, we were slammed as usual and I was stressed. I did the deposit and screwed it up. I was embarassed. How can I have done it perfectly everyday and a few years later not remember a thing? Its got to be the Sweet N Low.

Tomorrow I will run the shift again. And do the deposit again. Lets hope I can remember how I did it before.

A few more Lasts

August 27, 2007

Yesturday was our last service at Faith Assembly of God as Transit and Media pastors. Nate was more the pastor, I was the wife…but you know what I mean. Nate sat down on the main level with me. It was probably the first time we had ever sat in church together. He has become a bit of a control freak. I could tell he wanted to be in the booth making sure things were going to run ok. They did. I love the way God moves in our services. Our worship is full of life. People respond with excitement to the worship and the Word. I am going to miss all of these things. Although Ethan has issues in class (sorry teachers), he is going to miss the amazing children’s ministry. Abbey won’t remember it, but I know that people will miss her! 🙂

And then last night we had our last “living room.” Its our small group of those who are post high school. We went from Jen and Christine to busting out of the room we created! It was only fitting to end the living room with a little ultimate frisbee.

I’m going to miss everyone so much! I love you guys.

Real Estate Woes

August 27, 2007

Warning…negative post ahead.

Its getting comical. Really. We had an open house today. No one came. And then the local paper on the front page reads “Lowcountry home buyers struggle to find financing during market crisis.” Are you kidding me? Its almost laughable.

But its not.

Can’t get out of town, can’t get support raised. I have been and am still praying my guts out. The one thing I know for sure is that GOD IS GOOD.

But what does this all mean? Could be something, could be nothing. I’m questioning everything.

Starbucks Etiquette #3

August 23, 2007

If you are in the drive through. GET OFF THE PHONE! And don’t say, “Sorry, hold on” to the person on the phone. Say sorry to the partner trying to take your order so we can move on to the car behind you.

Today it was raining…no lie this lady had a 5 minute conversation on her phone with the window closed. We kept trying to get her attention because we could see in the camara…oh yeah, don’t pick your nose, we can see you….anyway, we could see in the camara the cars starting to wrap around. This makes us look like we are slow. When in reality, its you.

And if by chance you are still on the phone when you come to get your drink….don’t be mad if it spills on you because you are trying to get the drink with one hand.

If this isn’t you, cool.

P.S. Please don’t ask us to throw away your garbage through the window. I’m sorry if all of your cup holders are full. But it is actually a health code violation of some kind to take trash through the window. I guess it might contain anthrax or something like that. I don’t know why, I just know they tell us we can’t.

I’m still trying to figure out how to upload photo’s onto this blog without them looking “gritty” or not just the thumbnail. I’ve seen other bloggers post pictures just fine….whats my deal. Does anyone know?
