A Pain in My Neck

Today I will be glad for the pain in my neck because it is better than being dead, or worse, having one of my kids dead.  I got into a car accident today on the way to church today. nope, i'm not kidding.  And I know that it's physically impossible for different matter to take up the same space at the same time, but I cannot explain how my car did not actually hit the other two cars that I got sandwiched between before being lurched into the side of a big (very soft) hill.  Poor Coie's car.  It felt as if it were practically vertical.  But I am fine (with exception to my headache and my neck ache) and the kids are fine and miracle of miracles, Coie's car is nearly completely fine and with the help of the fine TN highway patrol, I was able to somehow back it down and off the hill and drive it without being towed.  I think I want to go back to Ca today.  And I miss husband.  And my yard smells.  I need a cookie.

Home Sewer Home

It appears my new rental home comes with a special added bonus. My neighbor told me today that nobody rents this house longer than a month or so on account of the backyard which fills up with raw sewage after a couple weeks.  I woke up this morning and smelled something funky but figured it was the burritos we had last night.  So we might be looking for a new rental soon.  If anybody here knows of a cheap rental here in TN, do let me know: soon.  At any rate, I at least have a very new, very cozy, comfy recliner, thanks to the most wonderful Kris and her very nice hubby, so at least I can gaze out on the growing brown swamp in comfort.

Being at Home

This has been a weird week for me. I've never dealt with change enormously well, and with geo being back in cali wrapping things up until the end of this month, it has certainly added to the rollercoaster.  Anyhow, what I'm trying to remind myself is that *home* is where ever God has me.  What if we lost everything and had to live in a dumpster?  What if geo dropped dead and I had to live without a husband?  What if something happens and this country as I know it is swept away with no hope of “how things used to be” ? I think, if anything, this move has revealed ( even more glaringly) how my circumstances affect my perspective, mood, joy (or lack thereof), and ability to cope… and that is so off.  Don't let anybody else tell you otherwise, either.  Think of Sarah and Ruth, Esther and Mary in the bible.  These ladies did not fall to pieces, become anchors of dead weight who were blubbering masses of uselessness.  No, I imagine they totally believed that God was God, and He could be trusted despite the craziness that was happening around them.  I will be fine during this transition — not because of any great ability to adjust to new surroundings and huge changes — but because I am fastened tightly to a God who is fully trustworthy.  I can rest in Him. I can rejoice in Him.  I can praise His name, for He is a loving God who cares for me.  God is entirely *here*, and so I am at home.

So anyways, you should SEE Tennessee.  I like it a lot better than Ca. PLUS, I like my new friends that are here.  Kris brought all sorts of “must haves”, including chocolates, NASCAR paraphanalia, a green candle, some soap I'd like to eat and even some weird concoction called Moon Pies that comes 12 to a box.  I was going to give Gena one, but liars should not be rewarded so I shall eat all 12 moon pies by myself.  And Nancy doesn't get one either since she claimed she heard me snoring .  So anywaysies, the only thing i have to say today is:

1) I like it here

2) If you live near me come and hang out with me (and bring me a houseplant)

3) Kris and her husband made my day — they are tre' magnific'

4) um. i don't have a four.

so thank youuuuuuuuuuu and good night
