This week is a little busy for me (which is why i'm blogging for dinner - obvi). After finishing my philosophy paper on Friday and attending Craig's memorial service, I get to move to this week's tasks - pack and move my entire apartment by Wednesday, write the take home exam for the philosophy course and pack to go NYC for the weekend (i know your heart aches for that one). That amongst the hustle and bustle of working, baseball, and everyday errands is keeping me hoping.
Rest assured, NYC and the use of Chelsea's parents beautiful camera will result in in-trip blogging. Oh yes.

I love you too.
Guess what? I have an idea for how you can put your love into action! I am moving on August 1. That is one week from now! Hooray! Oh wait, moving sucks. But no, moving doesn't suck (so much) when you have a bunch of your friends to help you and then you fill your faces with pizza afterwards. (Are ya with me?)
Mostly what I need is people and vehicles. I'd like to do this is one shuh-bang - ie take everything over from one apartment to the other at once. So we all come to my place on Wednesday after work, we fill cars (and one truck, i need one truck, or a van...anyone?) with most of my earthly belongings and then we truck them up to my new place (10min drive) and drop them there. I will do all the work after that. But me, my back and my Honda Civic can't handle the rest.
So what says you? Honestly, with enough people and vehicles it shouldn't take a crazy long time. The biggest piece of furniture I have is a desk (my bed comes fully apart, there's a dresser and two practically cardboard ikea bookshelves). Let me know if you're in and then I'll coordinate things via email - like what time people are done work/when we can get this party started.
Thank you. I promise I love you for more than your muscles (as long as you love me for more than my neediness and pizza),

My ass is not your playground. Or your buffet. Please stop biting me there. It's getting embarrassing and painful.
Don't make me break out the deet,

I will be unavailable for the weekend. But, should you absolutely need to get a message through to me, Sarah Moerman will be able to do that. So you can call my cell, leave a message here or on her blog or email her.
Thank you. Regular posting will resume after the weekend - two good texts posts coming down the tubes (toobs) - one about brides and the other about female pop music groups.

I haven't forgot it since the year I remembered Marie's and not yours while you were in Korea. And how could I forget such a beautiful friend's birthday, hmmm?
You are my oldest RUC friend; gave me a solid start in the SGC as foreign correspondent, and look, I'm the president now; you're a choir friend; a wedding singer duet friend; a daughter of a Marg friend; you know the trials of being a farmer's daughter; you are the queen of 9x13 jello shooters and mexican mess; you are fantastic for long walks and talks; apparently you're not so good at toobing over jagged rocks; you make a beautiful wife and a stand up friend.

Subject: memorial service for craig vanderveen
We are now able to announce that a memorial service for Craig Vanderveen will be held on Friday, July 27, at 8:00 pm in Redeemer's auditorium. It will be led by our Chaplain, Syd Hielema. Craig's parents, Al and Anita Vanderveen, will also be present. This will give an opportunity to students, faculty, staff, alumni and community members to remember Craig, give thanks to God for his life and grieve his loss. (We will also take some time to acknowledge Craig's passing in a chapel in September for the sake of all of our students.) Please continue to uphold Craig's family in prayer, and also pray that all who are part of this service will experience the Lord's grace and be strengthened in their faith.

Greg is a girl. And what a girl! She was born on Saturday morning - yup - 07/07/07. Turns out her real name is Madeleine Emma Legg. She was 7lbs 10oz.
Greg is the product of a soprano and a tenor. This means that she will need all the husky alto loving she can get from her sagely Tante Stew.
Greg is still pretty fresh to the world. So we should probably pray for her and for her excited new parents.
I didn't want to bring this up, but well, Greg has pretty big feet for a wee lass. I'm sure she'll grow into them and become the best clogger, speed skater or water skier money can buy!
Greg is pretty neat and I think we all agree that she can stick around. I'd say she's in pretty good hands.
So yeah: 2-4-6-8-Go Greg!
