Just so you guys know I'm still alive...
I am sorry that my blogger site has been such a bust, but not having a computer doesn't help!!! Frustrating is actually the nicest word I can think to describe how I'm feeling about all of that.
Actually right now I am in Wisconsin. It was NOT planned at all. But what happened is that the family that I nannied for, for awhile before I moved to Denmark, had an emergency and needed me to come back into town and watch the kids. Basically the mom needed to get an emergency surgery, so she flew me home and is paying me to be here of course. Bobby and Abby are the kids, and since they will be in the wedding it has been a great chance to bond with them again.
Wedding plans are coming along... Only like 50 days left!!! Guess I had better get the invitations out eh?! They are completely done, I'm just waiting for MANY people to get back to me with their addresses....
I can't believe that all of you graduate soon! I would give ANYTHING to be there but obviously at this point it will not be happening. But I'm definitely thinking of you all!
Ok, I will not write much more, as I have no idea if anyone has enough faith left in me to keep checking this anyway...

Yes I finally posted something last week, and now I'm at it again! I promise that I will get consistent on this... :)
Thank you especially to Rebecca, Andy, Jaralei, and Krystle for reading this and writing in my guestbook. This is all so new to me, but it's a lot of fun!
I would love to tell you all how I'm doing in person, but obviously that will not be happening anytime soon. I miss everyone in Denmark so much that it still hurts. Especially after talking with Melodee, AJ and Krystle the other day. And just hearing peoples voices in the background, aka...Andy's, "cool", makes me want to be there right now!
It's been an especially hard week here for me. God is allowing me to be ripped apart in so many ways. Right now I almost feel like a Master's Commission student, as opposed to a leader. It's hard, it hurts and life is very confusing and frustrating right now, but God is still God. I will come through, and I will come through stronger. God is developing my character and exposing my weaknesses left and right. But once again, I WILL
come through stronger.
Everyone seems to ask about the weather, so just to give you a little taste of it, I am sitting in my office looking out on perfect sunshine and a palm tree right out my window, that reminds me everyday that I'm in California. I will not however be swimming anytime soon as the water is freezing! Kevin really wants me to start to learn to surf, but I really don't want to be a one-armed bride. No I haven't seen the movie Jaws, but I know the plot. Kevin swears he is going to get me to watch that at some point with him. He says I need a good, "healthy" fear of the ocean. Too late, it's already there. (See previous comment about a one-armed bride)
I hope that all is well in Copenhagen, as I have heard about the recent and unexpected news about Jon and Annie. Although I don't know the details, I know that it must be hard for everyone there. So know that you are all close in thought and prayer.
Love and miss you all!

I have no idea if this is going to work, but I thought that I would give it a try anyway....
Life here is crazy, but the weather does make up for it. Except for the fact that it has been raining almost everyday for about 2 weeks now! Of course coming from Denmark, I know that I am going to have a hard time getting a lot of sympathy on that one.
I'm not going to write more until I know that this works. Rebecca, if you are reading this, please know just how much I appreciate you putting this together for me. Love you! :)
