Rainy Day in Kirksville

Yesterday I drove over to Kirksville to visit with , , JoAnn, Mary and Jess. We went out to supper with Bettie (Newman Director) which was fun. Afterwards we rented and watched Dogma. Tom ()and I also got them to play FLUXX. I don't think Jess liked FLUXX too much, but JoAnn seems to like it.

We also debated the potential options for holding hands with a significant other with JoAnn and Mary modeling for us. Tom and I have learned that the traditional arm over the back at the movies is not preferred. Maybe we'll get to test this theory someday soon, but we need to find nice women first.

Today I'm going to an Omicron Delta Kappa dedication on the Quad with my brother (Deana). Judging by the weather I think we'll be inside instead of at the garden that they're dedicating. After that's over I'm going to head back to Jacksonville. I wanted to stay for Coffee House and Mass tomorrow morning, but my boss informs me that I'm going to be going to St. Louis Sunday night so I need to get home, pack and sleep.

I miss college at times. I try to come back over here and recapture some of the past, but the past is past and all I get is a faded reflection. Maybe it's the rain, but I'm in a reflective mood this morning. I'm ready to move on to the next thing. I've gotten my career established, but at night when I come home, there is still a big empty. I'm ready to fall in love, get married and start a family. I know that God will get me where I need to be, but sometimes I wish I could speed up his timeline a bit. Perhaps part of it is me not being assertive and going after things so I pray God will give me the strength and courage to recognize and pursue true love when he gives me the gift.

For those of you that actually made it this far, thanks for listening.


  1. *tear* I went to dinner too...I see how it is, lol.
    Hey, you'll never guess what stack of songs Abby Howell and I ran across today in the lounge. I'll give you one hint: "Let us go unto the house of the Lord!" I'm talking MULTIPLE copies. I took one to scan and send to you, no worries. :-)

  2. Oops sorry Deana. Thanks for the songs. :-)
