Work has been such an angry bear lately... we've recently gone through (and are still "going through") a database conversion and it's complete chaos trying to help guide customers through a system that we're still working the many bugs out of... and a system that none of us are completely fluent in yet. So frustrating..... I hate not being able to give concise answers to my customers when they need real, working data. gggggrrrrr
On a high note, Shelby is steadily moving towards graduation next month. Cap and gown are ordered... college registration (and financial paperwork) are all taken care of. All she has to do is graduate and then, a few short weeks later, begin her college career. I'm so excited for her. This is something she's been looking forward to for so long. She's well prepared and confident in her choices. But.... this Mama can tell she's a little scared too. And rightfully so. Her whole entire world is about to change gears again. It's the same thing as just before she started high school... fear of the unknown and fear of change. But I know, just like all of the times before, she will take it all in stride and succeed. She's such a strong spirit and devout in her beliefs.... there's more confidence there than she's willing to admit to herself sometimes! I can't wait to see her bite off this next piece of her future. Love love love that girl.
Choir season is wrapping up.... only 5 more songs to sing before Summer Session begins. We've had a great year this year - only missed one or two of the songs in our line-up... which is a record for us, I think! Derek and I have begin weeding through the tall stacks of sample music we've received, trying to prayerfully choose the songs that will adorn our worship services next season. It's a daunting task, but it's one we truly enjoy. There's some seriously exciting music out there... you just have to search long and hard to find the real jewels among the stones. We feel very blessed that God has placed this responsibility on our shoulders. Pray for us as we take on this joyfully tedious task.
Our little Rufus is doing magnificent! I think he had ear mites, but we've had him treated for those and he seems to be improving. He's soooooo full of life and energy - a monstrous little devil with a purr that could shake the foundation of the house.
Derek and I are excited... tonight we're babysitting Emerson all night again. Christian and Melanie are planning a night out, so we get to spend some quality time with #RoboChop. Can't wait to get home and get some time with that sweet kid!
