I Am Still Here!


I have ben swimming without a life preserver on!  I've had no internet for 4 days!  :::GASP:::  But now I have some at the hotel in Indy, although, I have to use Scott's computer which leaves me without any of my pictures... so that will have to wait for a few more days.  I haven't had much time to even think about anything, but I have a few minutes now and I just had to fill you all in on what I've been doing here at General Council thus far. (As I type this, my hubby is in the Big Vote meeting.)  

[I'm sorry, but this will have to be sorta quick.]

I am so excited about everything that I don't know where to begin!  What fun!!!  I feel like a kid in a candy store!  

Ok... We got here yesterday afternoon, checked into the hotel, and headed over to register where we met up with Pastor and Linda Romine!  That was fantastic!!!  Service was awesome as was the altar time following.  We ate a late supper with the Romines.  We had such fun catching up and reminiscing about the good 'ol days.  

This morning Scott and I had breakfast together alone (can you believe it!) at au bon pain... Mmmm... We then met up with Pastor Alan and walked over to the Convention Center.  We walked around the exhibits for a while and I got to see friends from college that I haven't seen in years!  It was awesome!!!  (That's the part when I felt like a kid in the candy store!  Pictures to come... I promise... They're all on my phone...)  Then we met Pastor and Linda again and the guys all went into their business meeting.  

Linda and I walked the exhibits more.  She's my kindred sister with a missions calling on her life as well, so we got all giddy over the amazingly elaborate mission displays.  It was unbelievable.  We got our picture taken in a rickshaw---SO COOL!!  Tomorrow morning we're going to get henna tattoos and go on this thing called a Eurasian Experience.  They have a Eurasian village set up where you can taste foods from the area and all sorts of things... I'm so excited!!!  We visited the NCU booth!!!  I saw my old friend Jon and finally met his beautiful wife, Elissa. (I found out that she has finally broken him of the disgusting habit of blowing his nose in his shirts.  Thank you Jesus!)  We visited a whole bunch more booths that I want to mention by name and give links too, but Scott has my bag with all my info at his meeting, so it will have to wait till later.

Around noon, we met our guys again for lunch at Champps.  My friend Josh joined us too.  It was so great to see him again.  We went to high school together and it was because of him that my husband and I met.  (Thanks Josh!)  His wife is one of my very dearest and best friends in all the world.  (Oh, girlfriend!  I am missing you soooo very much right now!!!  I wish you were here!!!)  The guys had to go back into meeting for the Big Vote, so Linda and I did what we do best... We went shopping!  Now I am back here typing to you...

I can not tell you what a fantastic time I have been having.  I SOOOO needed this break and vacation!!!  I love my life, my family, and my friends, but I needed a change of scenery badly!  I feel like I am in the middle of a huge deep breath!!!  I have laughed, cried, made a fool of myself, laughed some more, cried some more, hugged so much, been hugged so much, smiled, talked, been giddy, cried again and laughed even more...  And I get to do it all again tomorrow!!!  Did I already say I am having so much fun!

So until later... that's what I've been up to!
