**are you now singing the song from The Never-ending Story??? I hope so!!***
My initial start to this blog post was going to be…”It was another busy weekend!” But then I thought…of course it was busy, when are things not busy? Everyone is always so busy busy busy. This is such a mark of our culture and I find it frustrating and unavoidable all at the same time. Why why WHY do we busy ourselves so much? First person to answer correctly gets 10 points.
I have lots of theories and in reality I don’t think there is ONE correct answer, so how about the most creative answer gets 10 points?
Anyway, Friday afternoon was bible study, house organizing and then a photo shoot. My first Senior session and let me tell you I had so much fun. I totally know why some photographers specialize in Seniors only. They really are the perfect age for photos. They listen and also have great ideas, they are usually more interested in the outcome of the photos (unlike toddlers) and you can have great conversation with them. I don’t think I will be able to focus mainly on Seniors given the fact that I know a billion families with small children who all want photos done (and believe me I’m not complaining, family sessions are pretty fun too!) but I’m looking forward to more Senior sessions in the future!
I mean look at this! So in love with this photo.
Saturday Paul was gone in the morning doing some work stuff and Kyle had a buddy spend the night on Friday so they were off doing teenage boy stuff while I worked more on the house. Putting a house together after moving is no joke. I made a lot of progress, but there is always more to do!
I also wrestled with a migraine all day. #fun
Paul got home and we were all tired so we decided to hit up a movie and then dinner.
We saw Planes. It was pretty funny. I LOL’ed a few times so it wasn’t a waste of an hour and a half.
At dinner, we found the receipt entertaining…
I don’t know what an Oloin is, but we did not want any. At all. Especially on our bean beansprouts.
Sunday was kind of nuts. We went to Sunday school and then we had to leave to drive out of town for Paul to sell his motorcycle. We drove all the way to Lancaster, an hour and a half away.
We got stood up.
It was pretty frustrating (obviously) b/c Paul had been talking to this guy and working everything out for almost two weeks. The guy lives outside of Riverside somewhere, so we agreed to meet halfway. Well, he didn’t show, text, call…nothing. After all that to just completely bail is just such a frustrating thing to deal with. Its hard to even fathom that people can be so cruel and rude in this way. Even though the situation was really disappointing, we did get to have a good conversation with Kyle regarding the importance of character. How treating people this way really shows your true character and how we want to really be conscious of the fact that our actions have the propensity to greatly affect other people.
The trip out of town wasn’t a total waste though. We did stop at Costco and Sonic and we also took a drive on the Civic music road.
Have you heard of these roads? There are a few around the world and there just happens to be one in Lancaster, CA of all places. Honda made it for one of their commercials I guess. There are grooves in the asphalt and when you drive over them, the road essentially starts playing a tune. Here is a really bad video of it.
Here is the Honda video.
After we got home I hurried to throw together a dish for small group and we were out the door again for our small group that night. Got home around 8:45 and cleaned up and watched #BraBa and then felt horribly sad before bed. What a crazy episode. I felt like basically everything just went over a cliff.
And now its Monday and there is work, photos to edit, get togethers, meals to make and more things to organize at the house. Busy.
How was your weekend?
