Well, it looks like I have a job lined up for the next 2 years. It’s not my ideal post for several reasons, but it is a j-o-b, in nutrition (which is hard to come by around here), with university benefits. And at least one of my projects is really cool and will be a big resume-booster. So I really shouldn’t complain.
I got back on Thursday, and on Friday got to turn around and go back to Springfield for Mother’s Day weekend. Charlie’s family was getting together in Joplin on Saturday instead of Sunday, but we stayed in Springfield for the Sabbath. As we were sitting in Springfield oblivious to what was going on in the world, Charlie nearly became the last Triplett. His family had planned to go out to eat Saturday night in Seneca, MO, one of the towns which got hit hard by the tornadoes that ripped through southwestern Missouri and Oklahoma on Saturday night. They kept driving towards Seneca, only to find the road they were on was blocked. They turned around and tried several other roads, all of which were blocked. Eventually they turned on the radio and realized they were headed straight for the tornado. Needless to say, they turned around. In the long run, all was well, minus some damage to their homes from softball-size hail.
I’m trying to get myself on the ball with creating my nutrition course for this fall. I really am looking forward to doing it, but thus far my attempts have been thwarted by laundry, travelling, Holy Days, etc.
We’re planning to go to Jamaica for the Feast! It looks pretty fantastic. We’re excited.
Anyway, my husband is watching Happy Happy Joy Joy on YouTube, which must mean that it’s time to go to bed.
