35th Birthday

I hit the 1/3-of-the-way mark the other day.  It is a bit hard for me to believe.  Have I always heard adults saying the same thing their whole lives and never understood it?  I don’t feel much different from when I was half this age.  Obviously, I move slower and have a bigger belly and work harder and longer hours and don’t spend anywhere near the same amount of time just goofing off.  But, basically, I don’t feel any different.

Let me try again to catch you up.  In August-September, my parents came to visit.  My Mom made sure my lawn got mowed for the second time since we moved in a year ago!

My Dad celebrated his 59th Birthday.

We processed chickens (Caleb needed stitches), held our first annual farm day (no pictures), and put vinyl siding on the garage, finally.

Home Church

This morning we will be getting ready for our home-based fellowship to meet in our house.  Right now, our fellowship has grown to three families, and we really enjoy it.  Most weeks, someone has prepared something to share, but many weeks we spend alot of time fellowshipping and some time singing.  I love it!

Of course, in just our three families, there are 18 attendees, so the living room gets quite full quite quickly.

In other news, I have joined facebook, and I’m not sure why.

Also, on September 20, I got an email that said,

On or about October 5th, Biden will excuse himself from the ticket, citing health problems, and he will be replaced by Hillary.  This is timed to occur after the VP debate on 10/2.

I had dismissed this as clearly a ludicrous proposition.  How could republicans know what the democratic strategy was?  And now that the secret is out, presumably the democrats wouldn’t go through with it.  but then, this morning I see the following news story:

With a sick relative and a son headed off to war, Democratic vice presidential nominee Joe Biden has grounded his campaign for a few days.

Not a bad prediction.  I am just beside myself.  I can’t believe this might be happening.

I can’t believe it has been more than 2 months

I should be fired from this blog.  Whoever it is that pays me to do this either isn’t paying me enough or needs to pay more attention to supervising his employees.

In the meantime, I missed posting about my parents’ visit from Ukraine, our first annual farm picnic, a bunch of chicken-processing weekends, and our first anniversary on the farm (September 16).

It looks like I will be working at Offutt AFB for another few months, until January 9, which means that I will continue to lack the time to make meaningful posts for the foreseeable future.  Maybe things will get better as we head into winter.
