last night we went to the cheap movies with our little household family plus three. this is one of the funniest, most purely entertaining movies i’ve seen in a long time. i laughed a lot, and there is little in it to offend anyone, unless you’re bothered by the occasional on-screen fart.
this weekend was also our church’s women’s retreat. it was good – good teaching, good opportunities to talk with people i didn’t know before. it also deepened my longing for more true women friends here. i have amazing sister-friends, but most of them are in other places. but how do i get to make deeper friendships here between work and school and marriage? any and all suggestions would be appreciated. (don’t get me wrong – i’ve met some pretty incredible women. it’s just hard to be patient sometimes while new friendships grow.)
tomorrow a new boy starts on my team, and he’ll be shadowing me for four weeks solid. it should be interesting – i like to be independent and work on my own. this will be good for me. but wish me – and him – luck!
