Getting Right to the Heart of Matters

The counting down and waiting is over (okay, so it’s been over since Friday night around 11:30pm). We are in Omaha and it feels wonderful.

The drive was completely uneventful, which was great. I drove about eight hours of it mostly because I was the one bouncing off the car interior about how we were getting closer and closer to home!!! Around Plattsmouth, I was dying to speed our little Alero as fast as it could go but knew those Plattsmouth cops would totally bust me, so I contained myself. When we hit Bellevue, my eyes teared up and I just couldn’t believe that we were finally home. It felt so good. We pulled up to mom and dad’s place and they ran upstairs to hug us and the dogs licked everything and did not pee, which was amazing. Adam was here too and we all talked for a while and then went to bed.

Saturday we set up for the Thanksgiving Dinner at church and I got to see baby Chloe for the first time (she is adorable) and play with Sophia (who is growing up way too fast). Saturday night Allison came over (hooray!) as did my brother and sister-in-law. We ate mom’s lasagna (a favorite) and I baked a pie for the next day.

Sunday was overwhelming. So many people. So many hugs. So many times to say that school is good and work is good and finding a new church family is terrible. We got to see lots of people, though not everyone was there. We hung out with Sam & Tawnya that night after taking GIGANTIC naps. I had one of those strange wake ups where I thought it was the next morning. I did that once in college. I laid down to nap before supper and when I woke up it was 8:30 and I thought my class was starting but it turned out to be 8:30 pm and I did not find that out until I was dressed, shoed, coated and backpacked, walking down the hall and saw people that should’ve been in the class coming into the hall. A short conversation revealed that I was dillusional.

So today I am working from home and liking it quite a bit. I have more to do and will do it now, but it is quite nice to work in pajamas!!
