is WAY underrated as a country. Probably the best food, people,
language, beer, and potty habits in the whole world. Did you know that
almost EVERY toilet in America is a sit down toilet (as opposed to
squatty potty). Anyhoo, I drank beer, I took seminary classes, I spent
a LOT of time laying around being useless. The first 3 weeks were
classes and family stuff, the last week and half straight up vacation
and thats where I got most of my laying around in.
Couches in America are soft. I don't care what you think. Also, the
television is light years away from anywhere else. I watched the tour
de france almost every morning - just the end of course. And did I
mention donuts? Donuts are about the best thing that ever happened to
anyone ever, and in America you can get them anywhere.
Okay, well enough about the most wonderful country on earth. 30+ hours
after leaving home on Thursday early morning I landed here on a
Saturday... Sad sort of, just to skip a day altogether. The trip was
the most awful of my life, I've never more in my life just wanted to
die. But it's over and its good to be home. Although the snack options
are lacking here, if you live stateside and you haven't yet tried the
organic cheetoes (I'm not an organic guy but these are friggin
amazing) then you're seriously failing at life.
Also, internet is slow. I've forgotten how slow internet can be. It
takes me almost 20 minutes to load a facebook page. Which is like load
and leave and come back sort of thing.
Anyhow. I had a good time. It was a time of refreshing. This next year
is gonna be crazy as there is a kid in October, and probably a move to
another city sometime next summer. Between now and then there is a
boatload of ministry and we're expanding to 2 new cities, which is
exciting but is going to take a lot of work. Praise God that I love
life as much as I do. If I could just figure out how to get sunlight
here life would be perfect...
I'm looking into happy lamps.
