Went out with Sean and Brook Saturday night. First met Brook at Borders. He picked up a book for me while in Ann Arbor. It is Son of Laughter by Buechner. It looks really good. Wish I had more time to read. As I come up on the end of the school year, I begin to enter paperwork hell.
Sean met us over there around 10, then we went up to Snookers and ate and played some pool.
Still tryin to get signed up to Lifetime Fitness, Kathryn wants to know when she is going to get to go swim. :)

It is funny that the idea of Utah still swims around in my head every now and again. Dave Nelson spoke at church on Saturday, and he can really nail ya. Mostly cause you know he is going through whatever it is he is talking about. It will be a great church in Utah. There is an end of me that would like to go, but ohmygosh does the teacher pay suck out there. That is even assuming I would get a job. Some would say I do not trust God. They may be right. I think though that I am more distrusting of whether not I even have a relatively accurate picture of who God is. I could go out there, convinced that God is calling me, when actually he has nothing to do with it. The thing that has become abundantly clear to me in my 20 years of Christianity is that, where ever you are along the path, you structure your belief system to justify what you are already doing, or want to do. My own motives are so disjointed and ambivilant, that I have a hard time even getting a coherent feeling about God from day to day - let alone uprooting everthing I have built on the possibility that my present view of God may be correct and telling me to go. As I look at the way my beliefs have changed in the past 10 years, it gives me no confidence to make major decisions based on what I happen to be believing at this present moment. If patterns hold, what I believe now will seem quite trivial in the future.

Ended up getting most of the things done that I intended to while over vacation. I have fixed up the basement to have a small living room area. I am presently there and typing on my wireless laptop. I read a letter that was sent to the grandmother of one of my students. It was from CS Lewis. Just amazing.

I skipped class tonight to write a paper for that class. I already dedicate way too much time to that class, so I was not about to offer up any more to it.

Well, we got Mary Lee home last night. I was up with Kathryn most of the night. She was not able to hold anything down again. Fortunately this morning, she seems to be able to now at least. Jacob has been an eating machine through all of this. There was a lot around the house this week that I thought I was going to get done. Oh, well.

First post. My wife is in the hospital and one of my little one's is down for the count too. I think I am going to need to make this private. Though with the tens of thousands of these out there, odds are the point would be moot.
