Back OnLine Again

Uhoh, it's been over a month since I've been blogging! I seriously have to get back in the mode. Tonight I decided to take a few minutes and do a bit of writing and catch up.

The past month has been a whirlwind of activity. LaVonne came to visit, Laura & Jaime, and Rachel came home for Christmas break. We were shopping and eating out and just having a lovely time. Then everyone left and I felt rather alone but thankfully school has started so there are a lot of people around again. I think the past few weeks have been my time for getting back in touch with old friends. Having my good friends around again has reminded me of how much I am blessed, and how much they blessed my life when we were able to share so many amazing memories. 

I have had yet another responsibility added to my list of growing duties! I am now the library administrator, which is a fancy word for someone who coordinates schedules, organizes people, makes sure the library is open when it needs to be, and other miscellaneous things. Being the first week of the semester, life is a bit hectic right now, and I feel like I spend my day just trying to put out the fires as they pop up. I don't mind, because I enjoy being busy and thrive on multi-tasking, and I love helping people figure out problems. But I do worry that I won't be able to do everything. I think I'm slowly learning that I can't do everything. . .

This evening I watched the 2009 version of Ice Castles. I watched the old version years ago and absolutely loved the music, the ice skating, and the whole movie, but it had a few too many swear words in it, so my mom decided we shouldn't watch it anymore. When I popped the remake into my laptop this evening, I wasn't sure I would like it. After all, there were new actors, a new plot, and it was probably really boring. About 20 Kleenex later, I decided I liked this version even better! The movie is amazing, it isn't peppered with swear words, and the best part of all is that they use the theme song from the old movie in this version. Oh yes, and Morgan Kelly and Taylor Firth are my new favourite actors!!!

Several posts ago, I wanted to start remembering blessings at the end of the day. I had several blessings today. One of them was having an old friend, Shahin, drop by to say hi and catching up on old times. He could always make me laugh and today was no different! I do miss having everyone around though. I think it's hardest because there isn't anyone left anymore. But I am thankful God gave me the amazing friends I have!
