Return of the Jedi.
It’s been about eight months since this blog went to take a nap…and in that time, all of my friends have started blogs while I have not have one at all (or have I?). Well, it’s time for sleepy Oz to wake up. I should really thank jimi – he’s the one who started it all. A few years ago he told me that I was not the blogging type, and you know, I’ve been blogging every since. And now – so are my friends, and their friends and their mom’s and their mom’s mom’s. And maybe by the time we’re done – Princess Mia will have a blog, too. Happy blogging to all, and I guess I’ll take a few minutes to catch everyone up…
1. This Monday is my last day at the Grove City Vineyard as the youth pastor. I’ll still be attending there and living in Columbus. I’ll be working for a friend’s company at a recruiter for focus groups. What’s great is it’s telecommuting position, so I don’t have to worry about getting a ride to and from work, which is great because….
2. I’m still not allowed to drive, probably until August. I haven’t had any more tonic-clonic seizures (the big shake-n-bake kind) but did have a complex partial two months ago, so the doctor restarted the driving clock again. Oh well. Lots of people around the world can’t drive, right?
3. So? Probably the big news of the day is that I’m going to be moving to that same middle eastern country where Robert is sometime in the next year. Rose Nylund – if you’re reading this – can you believe it?! Think back to our days at ORU and those crazy nights down in Kennedy Chapel during Ramadan. Can you even believe that 10 years later, I’m FINALLY going to go to my Muslims? It’s like we prayed it into being. It’s beautiful really… I’ll have to tell everyone the whole story soon. It’s amazing. Anthony Carrano would have a cow, wouldn’t he?
4. In other, somewhat related news, my brother in the picture below – he MIGHT end up in that same country in 2008. Wouldn’t that be a kick? We should just ALL move there. It’ll be fun.
Well, there really is a lot more happening, but I’m sure that you are going to start emailing asking about those things in particular. I checked the stats today, and I don’t know who the heck you people are, but a whole heck of a lot of someone’s been checking here over the past eight months even thought there ain’t been nuthin’ here to read! So – I hope that now that there is you’ll stick around! Be sure to check out Robert’s blog to see what’s been happening over there, and the others to the right are great, too…
Good to be back!
