earworm for my husband who catches himself humming it and smacks himself in the forehead. Remember my post from a few days ago where I felt like such a dork? Well, I have heard this song no less than 30 times this week. I am not crying over it anymore but I do know every word and sing along happily. The funniest part to me is when my 6 year old son sings about the Jay-Z song was on....he has no idea who that is.
band. They played at Lifestock tonight in our new building. It is a renovated movie theater and is a lot bigger than our little place we were meeting before. The kids and I volunteered to hand out free water to people as they passed by to find an optimum spot to watch the fireworks. Munchkin loved yelling "Get your free cereal!!" As we were also handing out mini boxes of Life (Clever, yes?) cereal with the church info attached. Every time Little Man was able to give away water or cereal he got so excited and jumped up and down screaming. I have a feeling that has a lot to do with him drinking most of my diet Dr. Pepper. I don't let me kids drink caffeine but he got a hold of it tonight and did some damage.
LifeGroup but we have not been very good at going and being a part. Some of it is selfishness. When I was working 40 hours a week and teaching once a week I just wanted to spend the few hours I had at home with my family and that was it. I didn't feel like I had anything else to give to anyone. The time I spent at my 40 hour a week job led to a few friendships and I appreciate those as well. But, I haven't done anything to cultivate those friendships either.
I know the society we live in is fast. My friend in England can tweet what she is listening to and I know it. I can see on Facebook that I another friend is going to the movies. I see pictures of friends kids and see how they are growing up. It feels like I am connected to them and caught up with them and I realize I haven't seen them in months or years. I ran into a friend at the fountains the other day. The last time I saw here was at Mimi's Cafe before her class reunion. That was at least a year ago...maybe more.
Blah, I am just rambling. I want to have deep meaningful relationships with people and I keep getting in the way of that. How do I get out of that rut?
