tired.

Yup, i think that pretty much discribes the Wilsons of late. Poor Brett's working hours have officially gotten out of control-most nights have been between 7pm and 8:30 before he's even home!! This really affects my days. I still havent figured out how to be happy and content with this set-up.

Last night we hosted the "Forty Days of Community" small group at our house ( incidently, Carmi made fun of the term "bible study" in her blog today...and yet, I gotta tell you, I use it all the time...I think the main problem with going away from this term is that we actually FORGET to study the bible! Which, is not a good thing. Case in point: Forty Days of Community Small group. i.e. Rick Warren trying to convince you to "serve others" without very much Bible at all. *sigh*
But, dont take my word for it, I was having a difficult time last night for sure....its HARD to be social and involved ( plus God-focused) when your husband comes in half way through completely tired and in serious need of food and you have no way of giving him rest or refreshment because of the 10 people in your living room-it was one of the few times I've really NOT wanted to be entertaining....

But, I did dress up as a Feist's back up dancer from her 1234 music video. ....I was all in red...pictures to come when I have time.

Um...FYI...Rick Warren DOES use the Bible, he just uses the MESSAGE (or MSG) version (Anything with the acronym MSG cannot be good), so that's why you probably didn't recognise it. When we did it in '06 in the flat Alice would always look at questionable bible quotations and say 'I BET YOU THAT'S FROM THE MESSAGE'. And then we would have to look it up in the back to see whether it was.

When watching the DVD, note the way the camera angle changes halfway through...hahaha that is my favourite part. I have a good 40 days of purpose story I might share it later.

Power of Attorney, in the military world anyway, is a relatively easy thing to accomplish. The JAG officers has a form drawn up, and Brett signs it. It makes your life SOOO much easier. At least, that's how it worked on Subase. Just get Brett to make an appointment with the JAG officer.
