God Must Be Laughing

"If you want to hear God laugh tell him your plans."

So this is the year I got serious about the gardening with the kids. And let me tell you, they are LOVING the wall-display of plants/seeds ordered and the garden grid layout. I suspect that my biggest problem will be taming the verdant lush over-growth brought about by really good compost and generous watering. Which is how gardening SHOULD be.

This is also the year that it is entirely almost perhaps maybe possible (or not) that I end up moving ... to a desert! Ok, its a "semi-arid" area. Which to a Southern girl mean DESERT!

The official website assures future residents that they'll have 180 growing days, they'll just have to supplement water. They might as well say "Its going to be ok, sweetie. You can always grow cactus!"

And its relatively near relatives. The not-so-functional ones. Words fail me!

Well, ok, some words are engrained in my mind, like "Its better than Alaska!" Let me reiterate -- I don't want to live in Alaska. Its cold and dark and full of moose.

Its a good thing I have a sense of humor :P


And TODAY I hear about the phone-call from Alaska ... "Can you talk to us on Monday? We do preliminary phone-interviews before we fly you out here."

Bwahahahahaha! And we all DO remember what we're praying, right? RIGHT? Which is specifically that I NOT be "jonah". I bet whale vomit is SERIOUSLY nasty :(

I missed something. Are you moving? Am I just confused? I mean, I know I'm usually confused, but maybe more so at the moment.

About a year ago we had a change of management where I work. The people now in charge have no idea what they are doing and it is unclear if they will be removed before they do serious damage to my organization. While trying to make things better at work, it may not prove to be a place worth staying after much longer. Therefore we are making time to evaluate a few options. We have no idea if we will end up staying in place or if we will move.

We are praying that God gives us the wisdom to know what is best for our family.
