having a real blast in AR for a couple days. I was feeling the usual single life day after Christmas blues while taking down the tree Sunday thinking to myself why even bother going up to AR for a few days... but once here, as usual, having a great time seeing my best college bud and his wife and kids, and he and I went out for a beer after dinner Monday night and talked religion and economics and life goals etc... then went back to the married couple friends I always stay over with, an ex college roomie and his wife that I grew up with, anyway I gave him the whole ear full of my semi celibate'ness the last year and a half and how I'm trying to move on and get the next career steps in life started, as well trying to branch out and meet someone, the struggle and the decision to keep up living by my faith number one.etc etc.. great talk. we had also discussed my ex gf visiting at Thanksgiving and the implications and how I'm not pursuing it any further at ALL.
today ran around town shopping and found a pretty cool scarf I'll try and post soon. had some lunch after we picked up their kid from therapy, then came back home and waited for some missionary friends to come by with their new baby. this is the couple I stayed 10 days with in Senegal a few years ago while killing time overseas for tax reasons.
they are awesome and I caught up with both and talked family and life goals and next step in their ministry in Africa etc.. they go back in feb and I promised to visit again in the next few years, Lord willing. ha
Big new year plans, headed to Dallas on Friday morning, some more shopping and then new years eve with some buddies. back home Saturday.
hope everyone is resting up and enjoying the week getting ready for New Years! :)
