Well, we made it through the week with no major mishaps, exciting events or trips to a hotel. Our new furnace is cranking in full gear, which is good, since winter has finally arrived in Rochester, with snow on the ground and temps in the 20s. Nolan had his first day of preschool and can't wait to return tomorrow. Claire begins an art class on Saturday, throw in a birthday party and a family pizza party this weekend, and life is continuing at a steady hum.
Next month, Kelly & I will begin to lead a small group video study on Wednesday nights during Awana. Kelly has been "lunching" with various church leaders, namely the executive pastor, and it's officially a "go". We've decided that we need to be making a stronger effort on our part to become involved, not just to meet people, but to establish relationships. Both Kelly and I are extroverts, gaining our energy and momentum from being around people, which has been greatly lacking. We're even hosting a Super Bowl party, albeit for college students, but I've got to get my party hostess fix in somehow. (Go Colts!)
Kelly is also volunteer coaching at RCTC, which will be beginning soon. It's really so important for him to take part, to be part of a team and stand on a field. He'll accompany the basketball teams to Canada next month for a tournament, then the athletic season at Crossroads really winds down from there.
Otherwise, life is good. No complaints, just feeling a little bit lost on my part. Trying to figure out what's next for Angela. Possibly a job, or something else? We'll have to see, but I'm enjoying being domestic for now (having my washer and dryer back, plus a dishwasher all help to put things in perspective!).
To a great weekend!
