I am sorry my friends.
I know that I promised a Wednesday update, and I failed to follow through with it.
But spring finally sprung yesterday, if only for an afternoon, and I had no choice but to get out and enjoy it.
Then Josh wanted to watch a movie last night so I was forced to place my bloggy obligations on the back burner and spend some time in, you know, real life.
Don't you hate it when that happens?
But since I promised the mercredi update en français, chances are most of you didn't know what I was saying and so I'm off the hook.
Funny thing about all that French stuff.
Sometimes you get a phone call at 8:57am on a jeudi morning while you're driving to the gym and everything you thought was going to happen in the coming years might be changing.
That time you spent yesterday wanting to throw your laptop across the room as you figured out the way that the French say their numbers might all have been for naught.
(An Aside: Did you know that saying 99 in French is as follows: quatre-vignt-dix-neuf. It means four-twenty-nineteen. As in, 4 times 20 plus 19. Is that not just crazy?)
Back to the whole phone call thing.
Ladies and germs, change is in the air.
I am not attempting to be vague on purpose. I'm being vague because at this moment in time I can tell you that there is a good to great chance that when we move this summer, we will not be headed where we were sure we would be headed when we woke up this morning.
God bless the Air Force. It just delights in turning our world upside down, does it not?
So I'm feeling a little unsteady right now. A bit in limbo you might say.
(Another Aside: I have an abnormally flexible back, rendering me awesome at limbo.)
But fear not!
Many are the plans in a man's heart, but it is the Lord's purpose that prevails." Proverbs 20:2
Someone much wiser than us is in charge of our lives, and no matter where we go these things will remain true:
1) I will always have more sippy cups than matching lids
2) I will never be happy with the way I look in a bathing suit
3) My house will take hours to clean and minutes to destroy
4) I will never get back those
As soon as I know something more, I will happily share it with you. In the meantime, we would appreciate your prayers for wisdom and peace as we contemplate our new prospects.
