Good News!

Two things are making me smile today...

1) For the first time I am going to meet another blogger - someone that I only know up to this point through the revgalblogpals - face to face. So very cool even if my husband made me explain to him twice already how I am positive she is not a kidnapper/serial killer... or even a she. (He doesn't blog much... can you tell?)

2) Our church board gave me permission to lead a group of folks from our church to a volunteer community in Mississippi where a lot of the clean up is still being done. YEAH!!! I have been itching to get down there and get my hands dirty for months and now I have permission to bring other church folks down there with me. More details to come; for now I am just pumped that the dream has become a reality.

YES!

Hey, post the details. Who knows, you might meet some more bloggers that are willing to get their hands dirty, too.

Hmm. Would it help to have testimonials from several ordained members of your denomination?

I will post the details. I am just trying to be creative about it so I don't show up on search engines.

Not sure why I am going to the trouble since I don't think I type anything too terribly alarming but I am just not ready to be totally out there yet.

Songbird, it is just too funny for words. I think showing him your church blog did the trick. He won't be here and The Boy will so he is being a bit (okay a lot) overprotective.

Actually, maybe I will take you up on those testimonials. Ha, ha!

Something that is making me sad: your blogger meet-up is not with me.

That ain't right.

ditto cheesehead!

I love living in Finland but ... :(

You all are too kind... I am really just not that exciting.

Truly I am channeling just a bit of that 'first time in the high school cafeteria energy' hoping I end up cool enough to have been worth the visit.

Seriously, where ARE my big girl panties...

We're going to Mississippi too in a couple of weeks. I'll let you know how it goes.

Songbird said...

Also, we have pictures of the whole family on Flickr. Although I suppose those could be faked....

We went to the States in 2002 to meet some friends I had made online in a Christian chatroom. Same kind of thing.
In case of emergency, carry an axe in your back pocket.
We found that the friends we set out to meet were even "better" than we had expected and we became even closer than before.

Oh! Please contact me so I can meet you!

Your blogger meetup with you-know-who is going to be WONDERFUL. I love her!

Mississippi is hotter than hades. Please plan for this and drink lots of water. I'll bring ice and a/c if I can!

Yippeeeeee!
