Not sure what to say in this post, nothing too spectacular to report.  I went to volleyball again tonight (that's 3 nights in a row) and I'm starting to recognize the same faces and remember some names of people I've met before.  Everyone is very relaxed about the games and no one ever makes you feel bad when you screw up, so I keep going.  It's nice to get some exercise when I feel like I spend most of my day sitting on the internet or sitting at the desk in reception.

In other news, I felt like MacGyver today.  The picture below doesn't really show it very well, but I'll try my best to explain.
The window doesn't stay open on it's own and I don't want it blowing open (or closed for that matter) and breaking so I was trying to figure out how to keep it open.  It then dawned on me that I had the perfect size book that I could stick in the side to keep it from swinging shut.  I am a book lover, but I'm pretty sure it's not doing the book too much harm and it's extremely useful.  Anyway, I now had the problem of the window swinging open too far and banging on the ornamental cornice-type things on the outsides of the window.  As I pondered this new predicament it occurred to me that I had saved some pieces of ribbon (not really sure why, but I thought they could possibly come in handy at some point and it turns out I was right) and I could tie the handles together to keep the one window from blowing open too far.

Yep, that was the gist of my last day or so - MacGyver and volleyball.  Oh, and job searching, there's always job searching...  As so many people have suggested to me since they've started reading my blog, I started attempting to write a book today, but I guess I'm too picky and couldn't decide what to write about.  I actually wrote quite a bit, but by the time I was done I decided I hated it.  I just can't do fiction and I'd even tried to make it based on real life events so that I wouldn't have to make too much up, but that didn't seem to be helping me.  So for all those waiting for my book to be published, you'll have to keep waiting.  That is of course unless one of you lovely readers has some great topic for me.  I'm open to suggestions.

  1. Dad said you could do a devotional book for children/teens. You could include places you've been, things God's taught you and include cultural, historical, and tourist attractions you've been too and the things you've learned.
