phew! i think i am ready.

so now i am sitting here breathing easy. i am all ready to go. i have a couple of phone calls to make and then off to sleep. tonight i had a ladies craft night at my church and i really enjoyed it even though i still had a list of things to do. (the list wasnt too big) i am excited to have more ladies craft nights (where i get to scrapbook) and i brought my albums for people to see and that is always fun. i learned how to do some stamping techniques and how to use those cool new brad things. and i got to look at other people's albums which is always inspiring! so now i am going to grab my suitcase to weigh it because there is a 50 pound limit and to get my fish because big dave is going to watch them. be sure to check out we are going to try to get on the internet and update while we are away.

late night mcdonalds run

so after a long day of work and then teaching caravan (we brushed our teeth, and had a bedtime story) then david and i hit the gym. so where does the mcdonalds come in? well we came over to david's dads house otherwise known as big dave and i was peeking around for some snacks and there werent any. so big dave said he was thinking about having an ice cream cone. so i took his truck and his dog jesse and we got 2 ice cream cones and 1 hot fudge sundae and 1 small fry. well jesse and i ate the fries one for him one for me the drive back to the house. he was really thirsty when we got home. guess i should have done more time on the treadmill.

we are going to romania with our church Seashore Community Church of the Nazarene. Our associate pastor has a heart for missions and plans atleast 2 Work & Witness trips each year. This is our 3rd trip with the church. A work and witness trip is a short term mission trip usually 2 weeks where there is a goal for building or fixing a building and doing ministry in the community. We are going to the Mana Church to add a second story and replace the roof. The church wants to be more useful for the community so they are trying to add more rooms for teaching. We are also going to an orphanage and we will be playing with the children and doing whatever else God leads us to do. Please keep us in your prayers and especially pray for the people we are going to come into contact with. Where we are going in Romania is the birthplace of Vlad the Impaler better known as Dracula and many of the people are into witchcraft and sorcery.

getting ready for romania

a trip to target! $150 and almost everything off of my list. what remains on the list should be available locally at kmart or reynolds or maybe even big lots.
rain boots (golashes)
face paint crayons
small umbrella
space bags (hopefully big dave has these)
the other things i need are books. and i am going to get them at the library. i had a long talk with my friend amanduh and she told me the good ones to try to find.

bad idea

it is a bad idea to forget to eat breakfast and to not eat lunch until 12pm because it makes for one hungry girl. i think i might have gnawed my arm off if it wasnt for Louie's pizza.

so we went camping with lots of family and friends this weekend (since it was a 4 day weekend) and first off i need to say THANKS to my friends Karisa & John for working at Art & Soul on saturday (they had a crazy busy day due to RAIN!!) So about that RAIN!! it rained and rained and rained in gettysburg where we went camping but we didnt let that ruin our fun. In the end i think the kids had a lot of fun in the mud and it did stop raining so we got to have a campfire but since it was muddy and damp and even a little chilly it was a good time for cups and cups of hot chocolate filled with mini marshmallows. (yum) well david got a lot of great pictures but somehow my camera turned on in a drawer so i only got a few. one day a few of us went to gettysburg and i got to see some really cool civil war stuff and the battlefields and we even got to try on some civil war time hats. enjoy.

taking pictures of myself

these are at the NYMetropolitan Museum of Art on the roof top garden. (its a sculpture garden not a flower garden) Its hot and sunny and they sell margaritas, martinis or bottled water. it seemed wierd because in the rest of the museum you werent allowed to have any drinks but on the roof there was lots of alcohol being consumed. (probably some NY hotspot we didn't even know)

so growing up in southern california i never had allergy problems. but now that i live in cape may, nj where the seasons change and there is a lot more wild flowers and trees it seems like every season change i have had horrible allergies. on sunday we went to a camp ground near our house and i could see the pollen falling from the trees...and i sneezed about 100 times. i really could do with out the runny nose, itchy and watery eyes and for some reason my face is really dry and my lips are super chapped. yep i am a mess. i took 2 benadryl tablets last night and i thought i slept through the night but david said i got up to pee and he asked if i was ok and all i said was i took 2 benadryl. i feel better now but still groggy...maybe i should have only taken 1 benadryl. oh well atleast i didnt wake up 100 times to blow my nose. ok sorry if i grossed anyone out but hey this is real life stuff.
