A lot of stuff is going on right now. Like, our family getting ready to leave for a week. We’re attending Vision Forum’s celebration of the brave men and boys who all died 100 years ago on the Titanic. In Missouri. So, this up-coming Tuesday, we’ll be leaving! We’ll be gone for an entire week. While I’m not super hyped about attending the actual Titanic thing (the museum will be cool), the road trip will be very fun. We have Focus on the Family Radio Theaters entire collection of the Chronicles of Narnia to listen to in the car, even! We read The Lion, The Witch, and the Wardrobe together over the past month. Seriously. Weirdest book ever. While it was okay, I’m really wondering how the heck it became a classic. I’m sure the audio books will be better and the movie had better be worth it’s pinch of salt, but I don’t expect to become a Narnia freak anytime soon.
Friday, Mom and I went shopping to get somethings for the trip (like candy) and I bought a new, super nice briefcase for my laptop fo the trip. I also got Jewel Quest III and Zumba to play in the car. And than at Goodwill I found Toy Story and Toy Story 2 on DVD, so I’ll be bringing those with me too. Kayla and I have a duel plug for two sets of headphones, so we might watch the movies together.
I’ve also completed the four character bios for my short story within the World-Building Deadline I created for myself. I’m quite proud of myself and I’m all set for two and half weeks of busy writing to beat my deadline. I’m determined to finish the first draft during the car ride and to have it all finished by the 21st. I’ve also been tossing around the idea of mapping out some things, but I don’t really have a clear idea yet of what everything looks like, so I’ll either draw up something after the first draft is finished or I simply won’t bother with that.
So, anyway, I’m off now to update my picture blog (I’m looking forward to taking pictures during our trip. I think I’ll be bringing Iron Man figure with me, and maybe even Chewbacca and Captain.) While you can expect daily updates here on my blog, I might not get around to uploading pictures on my blog till we get back homes, so. We’ll see. Yes, I’m nervous about leaving Princess home alone, but at least we have a neighbor coming over to feed her and the chickens.
So. Now y’all know the big news (unless you follow my picture blog, I announced this earlier in the week over there! ) I’ll try to keep up with everyone’s blogs but I might not have time to leave comments, though. Just know, I will be still looking!
And no. I’ve not seen the Titanic movie. Nor do I want to. Besides having inappropriate content, it’s horribly inaccurate. But I love all the shots of the ship.
Oh, P.S. I’m playing the prelude for church tomorrow. I’m extremely nervous, as it will be the first time I’ll ever play for church service and I’ve only had rare practice playing in front of a lot of people. However, the girls have shown good confidence in me, so they’re quite encouraging. I’m planning to do my very best. If you remember me tomorrow, could y’all say a quick prayer that my nerves don’t take over my hands? Thanks.
