I’m Baaaack!

Yeah, thats right, drumroll please, CBQ has returned! it has been a long 6 weeks almost since i have blogged.  let me give you the best update I can.

 Work:  It has been interesting to say the least.  More and more i realize how much i love the community I live in, and I love the youth that I work with.  I have incredible support from the congregation, parents, and youth.  and that makes me very happy.  However, if i could get rid of my coworkers that would be great.  They have accused me of using my work computer to look at porn and gambling websites.  for those of you who know me in real life, not me!  The sites they mentioned were blogs I read for enjoyment.  but, they don’t understand that, because they don’t really get the internet thing.  So, they have gone to the church council and have told them that I have questionable character issues that should be figured out.  The council has decided that I need to attend counseling, which the church will pay for.  I think it is great!  I love counseling, and I don’t have to pay for it!  i am trying my best to see as much humor in the situation as possible.  I know that God knows the person  I am at heart, and I rest on that.   Our pastor is starting to annouce this week that he is leaving after being with the congregation for nearly 18 years.  It is probably terrible, but i am pretty happy about it.  Like i explained to a friend of mine.  If he was just my pastor, I would probably love him.  But as a co worker, I just can’t take it.  So now, i will still have to deal with my other co worker, but i won’t feel like i am going to get double-teamed all the time.  So I have a feeling this next year will be full of transitions and new expirences in the work arena.

 Family- good good, like always.  We had a great Christmas.  Especially Christmas eve.  My brother, sister, mom and me.  and my grandma was there for awhile too.  we drank way too much, played this game called apples to apples for hours, and laughed so hard my stomach still hurt the next day.   it was great.  Christmas day I played with my cousins all day, and it was a total hoot!

 Life- I have friends!  it is great.  The Bride got married last weekend, and her wedding was so much fun.  there ended up being a huge snowstorm so the wedding dance had to be cancelled, which was a major bummer. I was there to do whatever they told me too, though a few of the bridesmaids really wanted me to be part of their crew.  I just moved to town too late to meet the Bride and be in the wedding, according to the maid of honor!  it was a blast.

The boyfriend-oy.  I feel like we have been fighting a lot, though he doesn’t really agree.  Due to a lot of situations coming together all at once, he wasn’t able to come see me over Christmas break.  So we are just frusterated with a 6 hour apart life.  But it looks like it is going to be this way for at least another year. yuck.

I promise, I am going to be blogging more.  Life just kind of hit me like a Mack truck.  Ok, I have got to catch up on my blog reading.  it has been a long time since i have done that too!

 Peace!

    I read this post yesterday and was taken aback about this so-called need for counseling. What is this?! I know what it is. It’s wrong. Please email me if you need a blogger friend. I’m here for you, Jenna. ((hug))

    Brenda-
    Thank you so much! Yeah, it is pretty crazy. I have learned I have to keep my personal life out of work totally, but it breaks my heart because I can’t trust my coworkers, especially coworkers that work in a church! Nothing else has been mentioned about my questionable character, especially since the pastor announced he is leaving. I am keeping my head down and doing the best job I can. we shall see what happens!

    Thanks for the support. I really appreciate it!
